UO cutting 31 jobs, including 21 instructors from its largest college - Dylan Darling, Register-Guard

The largest college within the University of Oregon is cutting 31 jobs, primarily instructors of humanities courses with declining interest from students. The UO’s College of Arts and Sciences plans to cut 21 nontenure track faculty and 10 staff workers, Arts and Sciences Dean Andrew Marcus said Thursday. The faculty and staff will finish the school year, and the UO will not renew their contracts. Most of the job cuts will be of language instructors, both foreign language and English-as-a-second language, and other faculty in the college’s humanities division, Marcus said. He said humanities classes have drawn fewer students in recent years. http://registerguard.com/rg/news/local/35456475-75/uo-cutting-31-jobs-including-21-instructors-from-its-largest-college.html.csp
