Johns Hopkins University Announcing Pay Cuts and Laying Off Faculty

Johns Hopkins University Announcing Pay Cuts and Laying Off Faculty

“cannot rely on its endowment to fill the gaps”

This shows that it’s not just small schools which are being affected by this crisis.

FOX News in Baltimore reports:

Johns Hopkins University to make major pay cuts and lay offs

Universities across the country have been hit hard financially by the COVID-19 pandemic, including Johns Hopkins.

The university is planning pay cuts and expecting to lay off employees.

The immediate impact will be on faculty.

In a letter, the university president said it’s expecting to furlough and lay off employees because of the money lost during this pandemic.

The university has played an important role globally in tracking the spread of this virus, but because of COVID-19, the university said it’s planning to cut salaries.

University President Ronald Daniels said the school expects to lose more than $100 million by the end of June and as much as $375 million during the coming fiscal year.

Daniels said the university cannot rely on its endowment to fill the gaps.

He said over the past 6 weeks as the financial markets declined so has their endowment value, which has reduced funds available for university operations.

“immediate impact on faculty” – why not administrators?

rather renowned for having one of the most competent teaching hospitals/medical schools on the planet

and they’re reducing FACULTY ? agree with poster above–should lay-off/dismiss 2/3 of their ” administrative staff ”

in any practical business model, when you hit a cash crunch(for whatever reason) you never lay-off/dismiss the PRODUCERS–lord–in a big outfit like JH you get rid of 2/3 of the staff in hr and other ” make work ” services

give them a ” learn to code ” pamphlet and tell them to hit the door

It’s more like “doesn’t want to rely” than “can’t rely”. Their endowment was $6.276 billion in FY 2019. Even if it’s down 30%, to $4.34 billion, eating the entire $375 million is still less than 10%.

Good.

Bury the shithole and then salt the earth.

Sounds like a good time to hire a diversity admininstrator.

    Truly, a highly-woke U. can never have enough administrators to help steer the highly complex reparations from their racist past.

I am sure that it has its share of 1) affirmative action appointees; 2) ethnic studies, gender studies, etc phonies–but we will; see if those are the ones dumped.
