U of L plans to furlough some employees and cut the pay of others

By Eli Hughes–

President Neeli Bendapudi announced in an email on April 9 that the University of Louisville plans to furlough some employees and reduce pay for others due to the financial effects of the COVID-19 outbreak.

It is unclear how many employees these measures will affect but they are expected to stay in place until at least June 30.

“As of today, the university is projecting a nearly $40 million negative impact between now and the end of the fiscal year unless we take immediate, strategic and necessary steps to resolve it,” Bendapudi said.
