Summary of the Budget Crisis for COLS

From the Dean's Letter a few months ago, just to remind you about the plans for next year:

Significant reduction in academic staff (part-time & temporary workers) equivalent to 52 3-credit courses
No tenure track searches this coming year;
No replacement or repair of aging or broken computers;
No purchase of new permanent property
No repair or replacement of aging or broken permanent property.

30-40 vacant tenure-track faculty lines (pushing 15% of whole)

Cuts to funding for the Honors program
Cuts the operating budgets of departments and programs by 20 percent

97% of the budget will be used for salaries.
