Brookdale Community College trustees vote to cut 47 jobs - Rob Spahr, NJ Advance Media

Brookdale Community College's Board of Trustees voted to reduce the school's workforce by 47 jobs during a heated meeting Thursday night. College president Maureen Murphy initially introduced a plan in October to cut 51 staff positions as part of restructuring plan to help stop the college from dipping into its reserves to close budget shortfalls caused by decreasing funding from the state and county and from declining tuition revenue. Brookdale has lost nearly $14.7 million in the past three years because of a $393,000 reduction in state aid, $9.4 million in county aid and $5.7 million in tuition, Murphy said.
