University Of Wyoming Prepares For Layoffs - TENNESSEE WATSON, Wyoming Public Media

The University of Wyoming is on the verge of its first round of layoffs due to state funding reductions. This comes after the Wyoming State Legislature voted to cut the university’s biennial budget by $41 million last year. The first round of budget reductions eliminated close to 300 positions, but according to Chad Baldwin, Associate Vice President for Communications and Marketing, those were not layoffs. He said the university has so far accomplished reductions by not filling vacated positions and by offering early retirement incentives. “We’re implementing a $10 million cut for that period,” said Baldwin. “And unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’re going to be able to accomplish the workforce reductions we need to without doing some layoffs.”
