Cornell University has suspended hiring of non-faculty positions and is reassessing its construction projects in the city. The Ivy League school says all projects that do not have construction contracts in place will be put on hold for the next 90 days as university officials reassess their capital budget. Meanwhile, the school’s hiring freeze will be in place through March 31, 2009, at 15 college programs that operate in the city. The university is bracing for state cuts of $7.5 million to $10 million, Ron Seeber, vice provost for land grant affairs told the school’s newspaper, the Cornell Daily Sun.
