NKU cuts fewer jobs than expected - Kate Murphy, Enquirer

Northern Kentucky University was forced to cut 35 jobs in order to cover an $8 million budget gap. The cuts were smaller than originally than anticipated. The cuts came as a result of President Geoff Mearns’ task to balance the budget with a $2.2 million decrease in state funding, increases in fixed costs including retirement contributions and declining enrollment. In April, NKU anticipated that nearly 100 staff positions would be affected. Some of the faculty and staff that will lose their jobs are still employed this year as the cuts will be made over the state’s two-year budget cycle.
