Bradley University looks to cut over 20 programs and 68 faculty positions - Natalie Schwartz, Higher Ed Dive

Bradley University, a private Illinois nonprofit, rolled out plans this week to potentially eliminate over 20 academic programs and cut 68 faculty positions. The measures come after Bradley University President Stephen Standifird informed the campus this summer of a $13 million shortfall, which amounts to about 10% of the college’s operating budget. At the time, he warned the deficit would persist if the university didn’t make cuts. The university’s provost and deans, and a faculty review committee, evaluated data and conducted audits to make recommendations about which programs to eliminate, according to a Monday statement.
