UMSL chancellor proposes eliminating 85 positions to fill budget hole - Koran Addo, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The University of Missouri-St. Louis could eliminate as many as 85 positions over the next two years as the university looks to reshape its budget into something that can be sustained year after year. UMSL is facing an estimated $15 million budget shortfall for the 2016-17 fiscal year beginning on July 1. Chancellor Thomas George presented his budget realignment proposal to a public audience on Wednesday. It calls for cutting $12 million in costs and generating $3.4 million in new revenue over the next two years. Some of the new revenue could come from tuition increases. Much of the cuts would come from slashing budgets across the campus, including reductions to nursing, business, education, social work and arts and sciences programs.
