MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University continues to tighten its belt to achieve approximately $20 million in budget cuts.

The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/1sjxlGO) reports that job cuts and the consolidation or outright elimination of several departments is part of the cost-cutting that has occurred.

More than 100 positions have been eliminated, including positions that had been vacant.

For the current fiscal year, all vice presidents were asked to cut their spending by 10 percent.

University Relations carved out more than 5 percent from its budget, while the Health Sciences Center cut roughly $3 million. That represents slightly more than 2 percent of its budget.

Guidelines during the budget cutting are intended to shield the university’s core academic mission and to provide raises in the fiscal year that starts July 1.
