UW Eliminates 37 Positions, Five Low-Enrollment Programs

Posted in

The University of Wyoming recently announced that they have eliminated the positions of 37 employees and five low enrollment programs in an effort to help offset the loss of $42 million in state funding. Chad Baldwin, UW’s Director of Institutional Communications, said that the positions that were eliminated will bring in around $3 million in annual savings.

Positions were eliminated in the offices of Information Technology, Academic Affairs, and Student Affairs among others. The five programs that were eliminated were Bachelor Degrees in Science in secondary education for industrial technical education and Arts in Russian as well as Masters of Arts in French and German and Science in neuroscience. Baldwin talks about how those programs were chosen from a list of 12.

Students currently enrolled in one of the eliminated programs will be allowed to finish their degrees.
