PLU could cut more than 30 faculty members in budget fix -: Kate Martin, The News Tribune

A faculty group at Pacific Lutheran University is recommending steep faculty cuts at the small suburban college in Parkland. Within three years, 31 faculty members could lose their jobs and two areas of study be eliminated or reduced, if the university’s board of regents approves of the recommendations in December. The proposed cuts were blamed on declining enrollment over more than a decade without a corresponding cut in the number of professors at the university, which celebrated its 125th anniversary last year. PLU had nearly 3,100 graduate and undergraduate students this past academic year, about 600 fewer than in 2005. During that decade, the number of faculty remained the same, Acting President Allan Belton said.
