As deficit mounts, YSU freezes most hiring



Published: Wed, September 21, 2011 @ 9:00 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — If you were hoping for a job at Youngstown State University, you’re going to be waiting for a while.

“There’s a hiring freeze, effective immediately,” said Ron Cole, YSU spokesman.

The freeze for nonfaculty positions is because of the university’s financial situation including the loss of $7 million in state funds and a deficit this year.

“It includes all [non-faculty] positions that are supported by the general fund that are now vacant” including vacancies as a result of the Early Retirement Incentive Program, Cole said.

It may become necessary to fill certain critical positions or positions crucial to the university’s strategic plan.

“The president’s executive Cabinet and the president will be reviewing those to consider if they will be exceptions,” the spokesman said. “But I’m told that exceptions will be few in number and very rare.”

And another domino falls thanks to the "Linkon-Russo Debacle."

Question to Mr. Ron Cole and Vindy,

When a statement like this is made to the Public “There’s a hiring freeze, effective immediately,” said Ron Cole, YSU spokesman.”

Then why was V.P. of Student Affairs, Jack Fahey’s daughter, Laura Thomas HIRED?” Oh Yes it was at a very nice salary too with wonderful healthcare and pension.

I guess the old saying of “Do as you’re told not as I do” something like that applies here. Sooooooo, the Faculty, Staff, Student Body and the Public must just deal with it as the Elite at YSU continue on with their cronyism and nepotism.

What say you Dr. Garg, Chairman of the BOT?

There has been a hiring freeze other than "essential personnell" since the summer of 2008. This is nothing new, just political BS.

In this area Kent State, Cleveland State and the University of Akron have all had record or near record gains in enrollment. I don't know how much the fiasco at YSU has impacted enrollment but the effect is a big reduction in state funding.
