Layoffs possible at UGA

The University of Georgia will have "limited layoffs" as the state's largest college works to absorb about $32 million in state budget cuts, President Michael Adams said Thursday.

Adams said there are no plans to eliminate any departments.

A detailed plan to handle cuts is expected mid-May, Adams said during a media briefing. He will speak with students, faculty, staff and community members this afternoon.

In-state students will pay $4,736 a semester in tuition and fees this fall -- a $368 increase.

Adams said he is not insensitive to students' financial concerns, adding about one-third of his time is spent raising money for needs-based and merit-based aid.
