YSU to lay off 15 employees and eliminate 43 vacant positions

Published: Thu, June 5, 2014 @ 9:31 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Fifteen staff employees will be laid off and 43 vacant positions will be eliminated under a $3.8 million budget reduction plan announced today by Youngstown State University.

“Three years of enrollment decline and the continued loss of state funding support represent permanent challenges that have resulted in a structural deficit in the university’s operating budget,” said Ikram Khawaja, interim president. “While these actions alone do not resolve our fiscal problems, we believe that they are yet another crucial step toward helping balance our budget while at the same time protecting as much as possible the academic and other services that are important to our students’ continued success.”

YSU’s state allocations and tuition revenue have decreased by a combined $19.5 million over the last three years, and those losses could increase to $22 million next year.

The personnel measures were included in the university’s $173 million fiscal year 2015 operating budget approved Tuesday by the YSU Board of Trustees’ Finance and Facilities Committee.

GDOG You should try something else . You keep repeating or should I say spewing the same garbage. YSU is so overstaffed now. They are finally finding out that these people are not necessary. But you being a union man you think overstaffing is better. So people like you don't have to work as hard. I for one am glad to see that YSU is really starting to wise up .

So gdog, why is it Kasich's fault that mismanagement by YSU is part of the reason for the deficit? All the people of Ohio should vote like the people in ytown vote, Look how well it has worked for the last 50-60 years. Typical libitard mentality, blame it on someone else. Good boy, good boy, you just make sure you continue to vote as you are instructed to do.

So Red,

What does voting in Ytown have to do with YSU?

You defend Kasich from YSU mistakes and somehow make the connection to local voting.
