HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama System
chancellor says its three campuses will shed some 1,000 jobs over
the next 18 months because of a deepening budget crisis.
Chancellor Malcolm Portera, speaking Thursday to the faculy
senate at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, said the three
campuses should expect realignments and consolidations.
He said Gov. Bob Riley told university presidents last week that
it will be 2013 before state funding is back to the level it was
prior to the recession.
