With budget in mind, Schulz announces plan to limit new positions - CODY COTTIER, Daily Evergreen

WSU President Kirk Schulz today announced the next steps for bringing the university’s budget under control, including scaling back on creating new employee positions and filling vacant ones. In a memo, Schulz said university leadership will introduce a process to “carefully examine” these positions before recruiting employees, and that the most critical positions will require executive approval. According to the memo, shared-governance groups will discuss the process, with the goal of having it in place by the beginning of the academic year. WSU has added about 745 positions in the past five years, Schulz said, leading to payroll increases of $96 million annually.
