University of Chicago professors, students upset by layoffs and school finances - Dawn Rhodes, Chicago Tribune

Faculty members and student groups are pushing back against University of Chicago leadership and its ongoing effort to lay off administrative personnel across campus. Leaders of multiple academic divisions were directed to cut budgets by 8 percent, following a university mandate to reduce spending on administration, faculty members told the Tribune. Several non-academic and secretarial staffers in the Humanities division were let go in mid-May, and another round of cuts affecting other branches could hit at the end of June, according to faculty and union representatives. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-university-of-chicago-finances-met-20160624-story.html
