The University of Nebraska at Kearney has announced nearly $370,000 in proposed budget cuts.

Chancellor Doug Kristensen sent an email to UNK employees Thursday announcing the cuts and asking for comments.

Kristensen says no job cuts are planned, but proposed reductions include not filling vacant positions. Also, planned equipment buys
were adjusted and some operating accounts were cut.

Kristensen says the cuts would cause some loss of fiscal flexibility in each of UNK's colleges and in some support offices.

But he said the university has to preserve its ability to deliver courses that students need to complete their programs in timely fashion.

In June, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents told UNK officials to reduce the budget by $368,430 for fiscal year 2012.
