Lincoln University says 48 positions will be cut for fiscal year 2018 budget - Lindsey Berning, KMIZ

Lincoln University announced Monday it will eliminate nearly 50 positions in the coming school year due to a $3.8 million budget shortfall. ABC 17 News reported earlier this month that the university's interim provost sent a letter to faculty saying leaders expected to cut 23 faculty positions. On Monday, the university confirmed it will cut more than double that amount. About 80 percent of the cuts, however, will be staff positions, and only 15.5 faculty jobs will be eliminated. The large deficit is due to a big cut to higher education across Missouri in the proposed FY2018 state budget as well as a reduction in the amount of land grant funding the university will receive.
