MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot State University’s president says one staff member will be eliminated as a result of approximately $2 million in budget cuts at the school.

The cuts are part of 4 percent budget cuts for all state funded entities ordered by Gov. Jack Dalrymple.

President Steven Shirley tells KXMC (https://bit.ly/1ozFSoN ) that one facilities position and one staff administrative position will be eliminated, but only one of those positions are currently filled.

Shirley says other cuts will be shared among the three academic colleges on campus. He says about $400,000 worth of cuts will come from maintenance and repairs.

Shirley says most of the open faculty positions will likely remain open until June of next year.

He says the school will be a leaner operation that’s still going to serve students.
