TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - The University of Toledo will impose an eight-month hiring freeze on many vacant positions next year as it grapples with an estimated $11.5 million budget hole deepened by lower-than-expected enrollment.

The Blade reports (https://bit.ly/1PchWBn ) that university President Sharon Gaber described the change in a letter Friday to administrators, deans and business managers.

She says the school will continue to hire new staffers for positions involved in admissions, enrollment, campus safety, student services and direct patient care. But beginning Jan. 1, the university will impose an eight-month hold on vacant jobs. It currently has a 60-day hold on such vacancies.

Gaber says the move will save the university $5 million or more.

A university spokesman tells the newspaper that about 350 positions could be affected over the eight-month period.
