Editor’s Note — Phase One totals previously reported in this story were incorrect. The totals have been updated.
As part of the ongoing process to close a nearly $39 million budget gap through 2023, the Office of the Chancellor has released summaries that outline reductions for each administrative unit across the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
The summaries are divided into two phases — Phase One, which includes $16,378,192 in reductions that have already been approved and $22,464,824 in proposed Phase Two reductions which are currently being considered by the Academic Planning Committee.
The Phase One reductions include changes to 97.44 full-time employment positions across the university. Of that total, 17.9 were filled positions; 50.1 were vacant roles; and 29.44 current jobs were shifted to another funding source.
The Phase Two proposals represent reductions to academic programs across each of the university’s colleges plus other academic units, including the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and University Libraries.
