UNM seeks payroll cuts after budget shortfall

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Some UNM employees will soon lose their jobs because of a $9 million budget shortfall.

University officials say they are budgeted for just fewer than 1,800 hundred full-time positions, which is down from more than 2,000 last year.

While most positions are simply not being re-filled as employees leave, the university says some layoffs have been necessary.

Many of those are an administrative assistant and other office positions, along with 17 faculty jobs.
