After consideration from the Academic Planning Committee, Chancellor Ronnie Green has given final approval on a $10.8 million budget reduction.

Announced in an April 14 email from Chancellor Ronnie Green, the overall plan includes a reduction in operating costs, the elimination of vacant positions, shifting the funding for some positions to sources other than state-aided funds, and eliminating administrative salary costs. The accepted proposal is available for review here.

Green thanked the Academic Planning Committee for its work and dedication to preserving the university’s core missions through the budget reduction process.

University leaders are also preparing for potential reductions in 2024 and 2025 operating budgets. A Strategic Budget Planning Task Force is preparing contingency plans for additional reductions.
