VSU Faculty Members Laid Off Wednesday Say 'Low Enrollment' Explanation Doesn't Add Up - Winnie Wright, WCTV

The numbers just don't add up. That's what professors at Valdosta State University are saying after they were told their contracts wouldn't be renewed next year. On Wednesday, 33 faculty and staff members at Valdosta State University were told their positions were being cut for the 2016-2017 school year. "We moved up here, set roots in, and planned to stay here for the rest of my career. I've hit all the benchmarks, I've performed very well in the department, but it didn't matter. Our positions were cut regardless of how well we performed," says Assistant Professor, Joshua Reece. He goes on to say that only the newest professors were affected by the cuts. http://www.wctv.tv/home/headlines/Faculty-Member-Speaks-Out-After-33-Job-Cuts-At-VSU-320842211.html
