UW cuts rise to $16 million - Heather Richard, Caspar Star Tribune

University of Wyoming officials are approaching their goal of slashing $19.3 million from this year’s budget. The state’s only public four-year university has cut 97 vacant positions and seen 55 employees take advantage of early retirement and separation incentives. The current cuts total $16 million. Eliminating positions led to the largest reduction, with a savings of $5.7 million. UW President Laurie Nichols declared a financial crisis at the school in June because of an almost $41 million loss in state funding for the two-year budget cycle. School officials are looking for ways to reduce the 2017 budget by $15 million.
