Massive Lay-offs Loom for Texas Tech in Face of Budget Crisis

Texas Tech University could be facing up to 800 layoffs due to state budget cuts.

Chancellor Kent Hance said that realistically layoff numbers will be half that at around 475.

The estimation of 800 is in a worst-case scenario.

800 layoffs would amount to about 4 percent of Tech’s employees.

Hance hopes that increasing enrollment will help cut down on the number of layoffs.
