TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) -

WSFA 12 News has learned Tuskegee University is cutting its staff.

The university confirms it's reducing it's non-academic workforce.

It's unclear how many people will be losing their jobs. The position are being cut for budget reasons.

We're told this will not affect instruction, research or the student experience.

Acting President Dr. Matthew Jenkins released the following statement:

"We are reducing the non-academic workforce at Tuskegee. Instruction, research and the student experience at Tuskegee University will not change; nor will the University's commitment to academic excellence.

The positions are being cut as the result of a mid-year budget review in an effort to align University resources and expenses and position the University for future growth. Our commitment to educating students for the jobs of the 21st Century and beyond remains our primary focus and will we not sacrifice what we do day in and day out.

Steps like this are always difficult to take and we thank those who will be leaving for their service to the University. We are only as strong and vibrant as the people who bring our campus to life every day. Our faculty and staff continue to make Tuskegee a great University."
