COVID-19, budget cut affect plans for fall at Augusta University - Tom Corwin, Augusta Chronicle

But AU and every other college and university in the University System of Georgia has been asked to prepare for 14 percent budget cuts that will include mandatory furloughs. At AU, that amounted to $32.9 million, Keel said. Part of that is cutting 69 vacant positions, the furloughs that increase as salary increases, and delaying renovations and eliminating travel, among other items. But all of that will depend on what the Georgia Legislature does when it reconvenes this month to pass a budget for next fiscal year.
