DePauw University Cuts Over 70 Administrative and Staff Positions

DePauw University Cuts Over 70 Administrative and Staff Positions

“concluded that the number people employed at DePauw relative to the size of the school is unsustainable”

It looks like this was a preemptive move to avoid trouble down the road. Smart.

FOX 59 News reports:

DePauw University eliminates 71 administrative and staff positions

DePauw University announced today that they will be reducing the size of their administration and staff by eliminating 73 positions.

The university says they have extensively reviewed data from similar schools around the country. They concluded that the number people employed at DePauw relative to the size of the school is unsustainable.

In an effort to maintain their financial strength, DePauw says they are voiding 56 full-time positions, 15 of which are vacant, and 17 part-time positions that have two vacancies. Those who are affected by this announcement have been informed and offered outplacement resources that include substantial seperation packages and a lengthy transition period, says DePauw.

The university will also offer a voluntary retirement incentive plan and make changes to sabbatical and winter term expectations. No faculty or academic programs are being eliminated.

    And likely kept their less than useless curriculums and associated professors leading to a Bachelor of Arts Degree in “Ancient Basket Weaving”, “Prehistoric Cave Artistry”, and “Wet Water Psychology.”

    The money that keeps a lot of the crap found in Universities and Colleges are grants from the Federal Government that pay these highly educated folks sums that would make the average Welfare Recipient blush with envy while doing just as much work or having any value for Society.
