The University of Colorado's new president is cutting ten positions in his first day on the job, estimating they'll save the school 824-thousand dollars a year.
Former U.S. Senator Hank Brown today cut six vacant jobs and two positions held by people preparing to retire, or who already have.
Two other jobs vacated by resignations won't be filled.
Brown says the savings include salaries and benefits, and will help C-U deal with ongoing budget constraints.
He also says more cuts could be in store, saying the university must focus resources on the most important areas.
The 65-year-old Brown was appointed C-U president in April, following Betsy Hoffman's announcement that she would resign over the summer.
Brown retired from Congress in 1997, and now oversees a four-campus, 49-thousand-student system.
