New Mexico Highlands University hopes to avoid layoffs - The Associated Press

New Mexico Highlands University officials say they believe they can avoid layoffs in upcoming budget cuts. The Las Vegas Optic reports that Vice President for Finance & Administration Max Baca said last Friday that solvency measures enacted by state lawmakers and the governor will mean a cut of about $1.5 million in Highlands' state appropriation. Baca says he thinks the university can weather that reduction without laying anybody off, but is warning that any additional funding cuts might mean layoffs. The state funding cuts came in October, when lawmakers approved a solvency package that cut spending by 5 percent for colleges and universities. http://www.scsun-news.com/story/news/2016/11/04/new-mexico-highlands-university-hopes-avoid-layoffs/93305080/
