College cuts 11 positions - Nathan Mayberg, Sparta Independent

There will be 11 layoffs at Sussex County Community College this summer — the fallout from five years of dropping enrollment along with more than $3 million in costs for a new student center renovation project. The Board of Trustees approved the layoffs by an 8-2 vote on Tuesday. College officials had announced the layoffs would occur in February, when the Board of Trustees approved a $20 million budget and voted to raise tuition at the school. The decisions followed a report of an estimated loss of $1.2 million in revenue this year due to the decline in enrollment. The cuts include two assistant professors, a dean and administrative positions. http://spartaindependent.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20150528/NEWS01/150529956/College-cuts-11-positions
