Money will still be allocated for four additional ILC employees
Nearly 130 classes have been cancelled and the same number of jobs cut as a result of state-mandated budget cuts, UA President Peter Likins told the Arizona Board of Regents Friday.
None of the 128 classes that were cut were graduation requirements, and it is unclear how many of the 128 jobs that were eliminated were actually occupied, Likins said. The fact that the two numbers are the same is coincidental.
Likins said he will release a memo today stating the number of people who lost their jobs as a result of budget cuts. Of the jobs cut, 56 were adjunct faculty positions and the rest were temporary, full-time positions, Likins said.
The job and course cuts helped the university fulfill all but about $2 million out of $15.8 million in state-mandated budget cuts.
