School of Accountancy gets down to business with budget cuts - Cory Ray, Daily Egyptian

Accounting is counting on old and new professors to take over courses because of short-staffing and budget cuts. This year, the College of Business experienced a $350,000 budget cut, or 3.6 percent of its overall budget — the largest percentage of any college at the university. Vacant, unfilled staff and faculty positions in the School of Accountancy — a part of the College of Business — comprise the entirety of the cuts, said Jason Greene, dean of the college. To cover vacancies, two retired faculty members — Allan Karnes and Raymond Walker — returned to instruct courses for this year. The school also brought Scott Hendricks, a local Carbondale attorney, to teach on a nontenured-track basis. Alice Noble-Allgire, a professor at the School of Law, was asked to serve as interim director of the School of Accountancy until a new director is found.
