UMD announces layoffs to reduce budget deficit - Jana Hollingsworth, Duluth News Tribune

Nearly 40 employees — all having non-tenured faculty positions — will be laid off by the University of Minnesota Duluth to help cut $2 million in expenses. It was done without eliminating any academic offerings, UMD officials said. UMD announced to its campus Friday another piece of its budget reduction puzzle, the piece intended to pare the area of academics. The decisions made leave the remaining annual shortfall at $1.3 million, down from more than $9 million. The university, in order to deal with less tuition dollars from several years of declining enrollment and less state aid, has been in methodical reduction mode. http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/education/4142302-umd-announces-layoffs-reduce-budget-deficit
