OKLAHOMA CITY — The University of Oklahoma confirmed reports of staff layoffs on Thursday afternoon.
A university spokesman said they would not comment on the number of layoffs in the staff reduction until all staff had been notified.
This is the second reduction in force at OU in the past seven months as 50 staff positions were cut in November as the university attempted to address debt concerns while former president James Gallogly was in charge.
Gallogly announced his retirement as president in May. Joseph Harroz Jr., the dean of OU's College of Law, was named the interim president for a period of 15 months.
