SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa.

The president of Slippery Rock University says the school is facing a storm of financial pressures.

President Cheryl Norton spoke at the school Thursday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Norton says the state school is facing a $5.2 million shortfall in this year’s budget, and she wants input from the campus about how to save money and tap potential new revenue sources.

Officials say Slippery Rock, a school of about 8,600 students, is bracing for an enrollment loss this fall of about 3 percent and freshmen enrollment will be off by 8 percent.

Two other western Pennsylvania state schools, Clarion and Edinboro universities, collectively are recommending more than 100 job cuts.
