UT-San Antonio to cut more than 250 staff, faculty and adjunct faculty

The San Antonio Business Journal outlines the carnage coming to UT-San Antonio because of the economic fallout from coronavirus.

Budget expense reductions across essentially every area of the university will result in the elimination of more than 240 of UTSA’s 2,650 staff positions. The reduction affects 176 employees in management, administrative and other professional positions and another 67 employees in skilled labor positions. …

UTSA is also eliminating 12 tenured/tenure track faculty positions. Nearly 70 of the university’s 700-plus non-tenure track faculty will be informed that their college does not anticipate instructional need for the upcoming academic year. As these instructors are hired on a semester-by-semester basis, they could be invited back to teach at any point based on need, according to Eighmy.
