Georgia University Warns of Layoffs After Budget Shortfall - Associated Press

A Georgia university is warning some professors that they may be laid off because of a budget shortfall. The University of West Georgia says it sent non-renewal notices to an unspecified number of faculty members, telling them they may not have jobs next year. The Times-Georgian of Carrollton reports the 13,000-student university told faculty members that it's facing a $3.1 million shortfall, mainly because 500 fewer freshmen than expected enrolled this fall. Tuition is the largest share of West Georgia's $212 million budget.
