Texas A&M eliminates vacant non-faculty administrative jobs

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M University has eliminated all vacant non-faculty administrative jobs in a cost-saving move.

Interim President Mark Hussey says funds budgeted for those positions, which were cut Thursday, will be reallocated to save more than $8 million annually.

Hussey says eliminating the jobs will not impact the health, safety or security of students, faculty, staff or visitors to the campus in College Station.

School officials didn’t immediately provide details on how many jobs were affected or in which departments.
