University of Missouri budget plan eliminates 474 jobs - Rudi Keller, Columbia Tribune

The University of Missouri System will cut 474 jobs across its four campuses and in its central office as it seeks to generate $101 million in savings to meet budget deficits and provide funds for new initiatives, President Mun Choi said Friday. In a budget presentation that was streamed live to all four campuses, Choi reported his decisions on proposals submitted May 19 and revealed plans for cutting the system offices. Most of the job cuts will occur at MU, where the approved budget plan shows the cut is equal to 358.2 full time jobs, with 195.8 currently occupied. Cuts at the system level total $8.5 million, including eliminating two vice presidents, the executive vice chancellor for MU Health Care, the chief operating officer of MU Health Care, closing the federal lobbying office in Washington, D.C., restructuring lobbying in Jefferson City and reorganizing the University Relations office.
