Machen Addresses Faculty Senate
The budget picture for the University of Florida is slowly coming together.
On Friday, University of Florida president Bernie Machen offered up some details about what may be cut.
On July 1st, around $42 million will be removed from the university's budget. Machen outlined some plans for dealing with the drop in funding before the faculty senate.
72 faculty and 80 staff positions expected to open up due to retirement won't be filled. That's part of a plan that covers $30 million through attrition, expense reductions, and various eliminations from budget proposals.
"There will be several, just a few program terminations from the list," said Machen. "I'm not in a position today to identify exactly which those are."
Machen said faculty layoffs would be part of those program removals, but wouldn't give a specific number. A final decision is expected by the end of the month.
