Ithaca College plans to cut 40 positions - Andrew Casler, Ithaca Journal

Ithaca College plans to reduce its staffing for the second consecutive year, according to school spokesman Dave Maley. The college expects to cut about 40 positions this year, Maley said. A majority of the cuts are anticipated to occur through attrition, Maley said, but he acknowledged that some of the cuts will likely come from layoffs. Ithaca College Staff Council Committee Chairman Sean Reilley encouraged Ithaca College staff to voice their concerns through his organization. “Anytime this type of topic comes up, there’s always anxiety about the unknown and the appearance of a major change, but really we do appreciate the transparency of the upper administration communicating this to us with as much notice as possible,” Reilley said. Ithaca College cut eight jobs through layoffs and lost 39 positions through attrition during the 2014-15 school year. In fall 2014, the school had 1,074 staff employees, 730 faculty members.
