Several officials at Lincoln University are losing their jobs in reorganization by the public university in Jefferson City.

The Jefferson City News Tribune reports the building and grounds director, a tutor and the vice presidents for administration, academic affairs and university advancement will be losing their jobs.

The vice president for student affairs will become the dean of students with reduced responsibilities and a nearly 22 percent pay cut.

Lincoln University President Kevin D. Rome says most changes take effect January 1st and come because of the school's budget situation.

Rome says he focused on the vice president jobs in trying to save money. He says some areas are being merged and that services to students are not being eliminated.
