Ithaca College attempting to make college more affordable - Maura Aleardi, the Ithacan

One of the major aspects of this plan is to rearrange spending so that it is more efficient and effective, Hector said. The college will reevaluate how it spends money in all areas of the campus, including faculty and staff compensation and purchases, he said. The college announced at the Aug. 20 all-college meeting it was cutting 40 staff positions during this current fiscal year after cutting 47 positions during the 2014–15 academic year, which eliminated $3.1 million from the compensation budget. Rochon said the college is also focusing on strategic sourcing, which refers to finding price–efficient sources for the goods and services the college needs.
