Faculty at UK Begin to Receive Lay Off Notices

Jun 8, 2012

Some full-time University of Kentucky lecturers have received notice that they will be laid off at the end of the next school year, but officials say the cost-cutting move is a "contingency plan." Regulations require lecturers to get 12 months' notice that their jobs will end, so some deans have chosen to send letters that tell lecturers their contracts will end next spring, Assistant Provost Richard Greissman said.
