From Chancellor Woodson, Provost Arden and VC Maimone: Budget Update – University Auxiliary Services
Each of NC State’s auxiliary units has implemented operational expense reduction plans to help address COVID-19 related revenue shortfalls. Auxiliary units have worked diligently to consolidate services; reduce hours; close facilities; enact hiring, travel and spending freezes; renegotiate service contracts; and, where possible, transition from in-person services to alternative online services. Unfortunately, due to the sharp decrease in revenue, some of our auxiliary units, in addition to operational reductions, must move forward to implement personnel actions.
