JSU Reels After President Search, Budget Cuts - Arielle Dreher, Jackson Free Press

Jackson State University students, faculty and staff members went through a whirlwind of hiring and firing in the last two weeks. First came the news that Dr. William Bynum, the current Mississippi Valley State University president, would move to Jackson to become JSU's new president. Then, interim President Rod Paige announced budget cuts for the university, which has struggled with finances in the past year. (Those struggles had led to the departure of former President Carolyn Meyers in 2016.) #An academic shuffle will ensue, leading to the consolidation of several departments. The budget reduction and recovery plan addresses JSU's fiscal needs after taking a $4-million cut in fiscal-year 2017, albeit with tough medicine.
