University of Alabama to cut 1,000 jobs

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama System chancellor says its three campuses will shed some 1,000 jobs over the next 18 months because of a deepening budget crisis.

Chancellor Malcolm Portera, speaking Thursday to the faculy senate at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, said the three campuses should expect realignments and consolidations.

He said Gov. Bob Riley told university presidents last week that it will be 2013 before state funding is back to the level it was prior to the recession.
