Huntington University is making a variety of cuts to close a $1.5 million dollar budget deficit. President G. Blair Dowden explained, “Our enrollment this fall did not meet the target that we had in our budget.”
According to the student newspaper, the Huntingtonian, the cuts affect 14 staff positions–$250,000 in faculty cuts, and $350,000 in cuts to administrative staff. Other cutbacks don’t involve personnel. All personnel changes will take effect in May 2012, at the end of the academic year.
