Officials: Layoffs hit Hartwick academic office - Jessica Reynolds, Daily Star

Among the 18 Hartwick College employees who were laid off last week were several long-time staff members who held significant positions of leadership, college officials said Monday. The names and positions of the eliminated employees, all of whom were non-faculty, were announced at a Monday morning meeting of the faculty and academic affairs staff at the Oneonta campus. Ten of the 18 positions were in the division of academic affairs and more than half of the eliminated individuals interacted with students on a daily basis, officials said. Drugovich sent out an email last Wednesday notifying the campus community of the “changes to the 2015-2016 budget,” which meant 18 filled positions and five vacant positions were being eliminated to address an estimated $1.68 million shortfall in the university's budget, effective immediately. Additionally, five employees were notified that their positions were being reduced to nine, 10 or 11 months of service. All eliminated individuals were offered severance packages, according to Drugovich. http://www.thedailystar.com/news/local_news/officials-layoffs-hit-hartwick-academic-office/article_3bed824e-ab37-5b7c-b37a-93d826116198.html
