UNCG, NC A&T facing layoffs due to budget cuts

Posted: Updated:
GREENSBORO, N.C. -

At least two schools in the University of North Carolina system are facing layoffs after lawmakers cut state spending to 13 of the 16 member institutions.
    
The News & Record of Greensboro reports North Carolina A&T Chancellor Harold Martin said his school will cut about 50 positions this fall. UNCG Chancellor Linda Brady said she'll decide on job cuts next week.
    
The pending layoffs follow a move by the UNC Board of Governors on Friday to adjust the budgets of the 16 state universities affected by the new state spending plan that Gov. Pat McCrory signed last month.
    
Lawmakers cut state spending on 13 of 16 schools. When tuition revenues are factored in, 10 state universities - including A&T and UNCG - will have their annual operating budgets trimmed.
