Drury plans to cut academic budget by $3 million, mostly in personnel - Claudette Riley, News-Leader

As students talk about staging sit-ins to save faculty jobs, Drury University is taking steps to explain why deep cuts in personnel — an estimated $3 million between this year and next — are necessary. Top officials sent emails to students, faculty and staff and sat down with the News-Leader to outline immediate plans to save money by cutting positions and long-range plans to reverse more than a decade of declining enrollment. They also wanted to quash rumors, which they say are unfounded. They denied there are plans to eliminate more faculty positions this year, cut any programs or abandon the liberal arts mission that is integral to the university’s identity.
