University of Tulsa cutting non-faculty positions, salaries, benefits - CLAYTON YOUNGMAN, KTUL

The University of Tulsa is undertaking a full-scale effort to cut costs. University President Steadman Upham announced various changes to the university's budget operations to staff members on Tuesday. The cost-cutting measures include eliminating 43 non-faculty positions, voluntary salary reductions, and changes to employees' benefits. "During the last several years, The University of Tulsa has maintained a steady course and a secure top-100 national ranking, but we are not immune to the challenges of today’s economy," Upham wrote in the letter to the campus. "We continue to compete for a shrinking number of highly qualified students. In addition, lingering effects of the 2009 economic downturn and a slumping energy sector are putting greater pressure on U.S. family income."
