UNLV Professors Take Buyouts

Nearly 50 UNLV professors won’t be teaching classes this fall.  The tenured instructors agreed to a buyout that officials say will save more jobs.  The professors were offered one-and-half times their annual salaries to step down.  The “Review-Journal” says UNLV will pay out more than seven-million dollars, but the university is expected to save nearly five-million dollars in salaries this fiscal year.  It comes as the Vegas campus faces a 20-million-dollar reduction in state funding.
