Keystone College Cutting Majors and Laying off Staff

Keystone College Cutting Majors and Laying off Staff

“It was certainly not a snap decision nor was it an easy decision.”

Another small private college making cuts, for the purpose of sustainability.

WNEP News reports:

Keystone College to Eliminate Two Majors, Layoff Employees

Keystone College has announced plans to layoff professors and eliminate programs as part of a campus-wide realignment.

The college near Factoryville is done for the semester but administrators rolled out plans that will affect students for the next few years.

Keystone will layoff a total of 16 employees and eliminate the visual arts and geology majors.

The school will still offer those classes but plan to rework the programs to make them more career-friendly.

“It was certainly not a snap decision nor was it an easy decision. It was really part of a comprehensive approach that we’ve been looking at for many, many months.

why eliminate legitimate scientific study? because they need grievance studies majors for angsty students to transition into once they fail at stem.

    Whenever I see one of these posts on LI, I like to go to the college’s website to see what majors and minors they offer, in order to find out which ones they’re keeping.

    In this case, I don’t see any questionable majors (“grievance studies”) — although they do have a vaguely-described AA program called Liberal Studies that has apparently escaped the chopping block.
