Bowling Green State plans to slash 100 faculty positions

Associated Press


Bowling Green State University plans to cut 100 of its 932 faculty positions by this fall, the university’s student newspaper reports.

Cuts will come from both the university’s main campus and the Firelands campus in Huron, the newspaper reported.

The reduction will save $5.2 million, which can be used to create more competitive staff salaries and be put toward other university priorities, President Mary Ellen Mazey said in an email to faculty and staff, the BG News reported.

The decision to reduce the number of faculty positions was made after the university compared its staffing to that of Miami University, Ohio University and Kent State University, the newspaper said.

Rodney Rogers, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost, said the quality of education will not decrease, the BG News said.

“Our priority is ensuring the success of our students, and we are constantly evaluating staffing to meet their needs and operate as efficiently as possible,” Rogers said.

GDOG The only mindless idiot is YOU! They are way over staff compared to other colleges. So I guess you they should just go on wasting tax payers monies to keep all of these people. Yes If he runs again I will be voting for him. I'm tired of giving my tax monies away and not getting anything in return. You freakin liberals are really screwed up if you think everything is FREE!

So Kasich is the reason that these bloated institutions have raised salaries every year and hired staff without regard to declining enrollment? I'm not defending the Gov but when a business loses revenue these cuts are not only appropriate, they're necessary for survival. These same cuts are coming at YSU, Akron, Kent, etc.unless enrollment magically perks up. Tuition already goes up every year like clockwork and that's not enough. Cuts must be made.

Don't yell at stuttering gdog. I'm sure he meant to say "Bush" instead of Kasich.

gdog, Cambridge and a few others on this message board have no idea what trouble our great country is in. Absolutely none.
Our natl debt has risen by about 5Tr., in the past 4 yrs, & from all appearances will continue to rise the remainder of the next 4 yrs. which means over 20 T in 2016.
Beside this debt, our credit rating was knocked I notch, & it wouldn't surprise me that, in the very near future, that it will be reduced another notch. Where does the spending, of this adm, stop or at least slow down?
Obama doesn't want to work with Congress. He is King Obama now & more confrontational than ever. That's why I liked Clinton. He was a moderate & worked with Congress for the good of the country & you saw the results.
83% of Americans say that our spending is out of control but no one wants to step up & do anything about this spending. Politicans want to be reelected so they won't stick their neck out for the good of the country.
I glad I'm an old foggy, & don't have to face what my grandchildren will face, but I do pray for their success.
