Jackson State University proposing to slash employees, programs due to budget woes - Jimmie E. Gates , The Clarion-Ledger

Jackson State University is planning to lay off 42 employees, eliminate 65 vacant positions, consolidate programs and continue with a hiring freeze. Interim JSU President Rod Paige, appointed Nov. 1 by the state College Board, outlined the cost-cutting plan Wednesday. The plan includes implementing a hiring freeze, suspending all internally funded travel, eliminating all unfilled positions, reducing spending on commodities, discontinuing several terminable contracts, resizing satellite campuses and academic and administrative restructuring. Further, to achieve the necessary cost-cutting goals, the university is implementing a reduction in force that will bring the FY2018 budget in balance and allow the university to focus on rebuilding depleted cash reserves, Paige said in a statement. http://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/2017/05/31/jackson-state-university-proposing-slash-employees-and-programs-due-budget-woes/354659001/
