More layoffs and tuition hikes for Ol’ Mizzou

The interim chancellor of Mizzou tells a forum on the Columbia campus she expects about 400 positions to be eliminated before next school year. Garnett Stokes on Tuesday said most of the cuts would come through attrition, but between 80 and 100 layoffs would occur.
