COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Columbus State University officials have announced they cut 16 jobs this week.
University spokesman Bill Sutley says the jobs, 12 of which were
filled, were eliminated Wednesday.
Sutley says the jobs were staff positions in areas including student affairs, continuing education and information technology.
He says no faculty positions were cut.
The campus has about 975 full-time and part-time employees.
The cuts represent about 1 percent of the total staff.
Columbus State will lose about $5 million in state funding this year because of widespread budget cuts aimed at filling an anticipated $2.6 billion shortfall in Georgia.
The campus gets about $40 million from the state each year.
