Budget crunch may force UMSL layoffs - DALE SINGER, St. Louis Public Radio

The chancellor of the University of Missouri-St. Louis says a $15 million hole in the campus’ budget, prompted by reductions in state support and student enrollment, will probably lead to layoffs later this year. In a campuswide message Friday, Chancellor Tom George notes that the $160 million operations budget for the campus comes primarily from state funding and student tuition. UMSL instituted a hiring freeze in December 2014 when enrollment dropped after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in nearby Ferguson. At the time, George cited a $2 million budget deficit. http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/budget-crunch-may-force-umsl-layoffs
