University Furloughs Employees for Spring Break - Inside Higher Ed

This year, all faculty and staff at Morehead State University will be spending their spring break on furlough without pay. Facing a $2.6 million tuition shortfall and a proposed $1.95 million cut in state funding, the university needs to cut costs by $4.5 million, the Lexington Herald Leader reported. President Wayne Andrews announced the furlough Thursday. The proposed cut in state funding presents an exceptional challenge, Andrews wrote in an email to the campus. By the time it was announced, late in the fiscal year, most of the university’s discretionary resources had already been spent or committed. https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2016/03/11/university-furloughs-employees-spring-break
