Committee Weighs Possible Budget Reduction - Oliver Bok, Oberlin Review

The College’s financial position isn’t healthy, and the community will have to make tough decisions about where to put resources in the near future. At any rate, that’s the conclusion that many members of the Strategic Planning Steering Committee — the group of students, faculty, staff, trustees and administrators who are tasked with planning the College’s fiscal and educational future — seem to be coming to. “To put it simply, we have made a lot of promises that cost money,” said double-degree junior and committee member Hayden Arp. “We promised to raise faculty salaries to the median of our peer group. We promised to be carbon neutral by 2025. And then there’s the things we want to do: We want to increase the amount of diversity on campus. We want to increase student support services, and all those things cost money.” http://oberlinreview.org/8462/news/committee-weighs-possible-budget-reduction
