Enrollment declines lead to layoffs at Albany State, Darton colleges - Janel Davis, Atlanta Journal Constitution

Albany State University and Darton State College are laying off employees following years of enrollment declines that are affecting the schools’ budgets. The layoffs announced Monday by presidents at both institutions were part of a plan to reduce operating expenses for the fiscal year that began July 1. Albany State is cutting 80 positions, 48 of which are filled; Darton State is cutting 30 unfilled positions. Employees were informed Monday their their jobs would end Sept. 30. Since 2015 Darton State has cut 20 staffers and maintained a hiring freeze for all but the most critical positions.
