Dear Colleagues,

Last week, you received information about the University’s budget challenges and the strategies we need to employ to build a sustainable path forward while doing all we can to protect employees.

We had hoped to provide more information on these strategies today. These are critically important issues, and we recognize that many of you, in particular staff members who will be affected directly, are anxious for specifics. We already have received excellent questions, and we want to take the time necessary to ensure that our communications are clear and succinct. We expect to have more details next week, including a centralized online resource for up-to-date information about budget-related human resource information.

If you have individual questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact


Thank You,

Jes Kraus

Chief Human Resources Officer
