U of I freezes administration hiring over budget - David Mercer, The Associated Press

University of Illinois President Timothy Killeen on Thursday froze hiring in the school's administration until the state's budget situation is resolved. Killeen said in a memo to university administrators obtained by The Associated Press that the university is making the move to help manage finances while it waits to find out how much state money it will receive this fiscal year. "We realize these measures will create challenges," Killeen wrote. "Given the state's budget circumstances, we must focus our efforts on effectively managing our resources so as to maintain essential services." Faculty jobs and other positions on the university's campuses aren't affected, only the central administration, university spokesman Tom Hardy said later. He said about 23 open positions are affected, plus positions that open while the freeze goes on. http://www.sj-r.com/article/20150702/NEWS/150709891
