University of Maryland announces hiring freeze - Colin Campbell, The Baltimore Sun

All hires have been frozen at the University of Maryland amid immediate spending limit. The University of Maryland, College Park is under a campuswide hiring and construction freeze due to an anticipated state budget shortfall, University President Wallace D. Loh announced Wednesday in a letter to faculty and staff. Loh said all state agencies have been asked to "immediately begin to limit all discretionary spending" and warned of "additional budget reductions during this fiscal year." The hiring freeze, effective immediately, will affect all hires except lecturers, graduate assistants and positions funded by external research grants, with "rare exceptions" to meet critical needs. Any new, state-funded renovations or major equipment purchases will be suspended, "unless necessary for safety reasons," Loh wrote. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/education/blog/bs-md-umd-hiring-freeze-20141210-story.html
