Vermont Tech College lays off eight faculty - Free Press

Vermont Technical College in Randolph Center is laying off eight faculty members effective Aug. 1, 2015, the president of the school announced Monday. In a message to faculty and staff, VTC president Dan Smith said the action is part of budget cutting actions dating to last spring. “We are driven to these steps by the same two factors that can pull us out of it: state funding and declining enrollment,” Smith wrote. “By virtue of its inattention to public higher education, the state has now put at risk the very programs it claims to need. I am committed to seeing both of those things change, and welcome your help in that effort.” http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/story/news/local/2014/12/01/vermont-tech-college-lays-eight-faculty/19748603/
