Bowling Green State plans to slash 100 faculty positions

BOWLING GREEN

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.
