Expected budget cuts prompt 6-month staff hiring freeze at UNM - Chris Quintana, Albuquerque Journal

University of New Mexico President Bob Frank announced Wednesday a hiring freeze for staff positions that will last at least six months. Faculty hiring will also slow, according to the letter sent to all university employees. Frank said the freeze is a response to looming state budget cuts. “All financial savings associated with this moratorium will be swept centrally to offset anticipated current year budget reductions,” Frank wrote. After six months, the administration will consider whether the freeze can be lifted or should remain in place. Frank had announced plans for the freeze earlier this month at a Board of Regents meeting.
