University of Kansas to cut more than 150 positions


December 7, 2018

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas plans to shed more than 150 positions in an effort to cut $20 million from the school's budget.

Interim Provost Carl Lejuez announced Wednesday that the university will be eliminating about 55 faculty positions and 100 staff positions over the next two school years, the Lawrence Journal-World reported.

The faculty cuts will occur through normal attrition and a buyout program for older faculty, but the university will need to lay off about 30 staff members, Lejuez said. Those affected by the layoffs will be notified by summer 2019, he added.
