UMKC will cut about 30 jobs to counter drop in state support - MARÁ ROSE WILLIAMS, Kansas City Star

University of Missouri-Kansas City officials have announced that about 30 jobs are being cut in an effort to shave 3 percent from the campus budget. The staff reduction — expected to be fewer than 30 posts — is in response to an announcement last month from University of Missouri System President Mun Choi. He said the four campus system needs to cut 8 to 12 percent of its budget for fiscal year 2018 if it was going to manage an expected drop in state support. Earlier this month the Missouri legislature passed a budget with a 6.58 percent decrease in core funding for universities statewide. That’s after a 7.6 percent withholding announced by the governor in January.
