Genshaft: 42 laid off so far at USF



Opening the USF Board of Trustees meeting this morning, President Judy Genshaft reported that 42 USF employees have been laid off since last month, when she announced a $35.6-million budget-cutting plan that ultimately eliminates 450 positions from the payroll

Only 70 of the 450 positions were filled when USF officials unveiled their plan a couple of weeks ago, so that leaves more than two dozen who still will get notices. Of the 42, 34 are staff, three are non-tenured faculty who were not actively teaching, and five were administrators.

"We're working very hard to place all of these people in career spots," Genshaft told trustees. "We want everybody to reach their career goals."
