School also plans to reduce enrollment by 4,000 over 4 years

The University of Florida has announced layoffs, reductions in degree programs and a steep cut in undergraduate enrollment as part of a plan to cope with severe budget cuts from the state. Like all public universities in the state, the University of Florida is in the middle of one of the worst budget crunches in years. The school will cut 400 jobs, which will include eliminating vacant positions and laying off 20 faculty members and 118 staffers. The school also will reduce undergraduate enrollment by 4,000 students over four years, beginning with a decrease of transfer students by 1,000 next year.
