Word on the street is that everyone who directly reports to the SIUC Chancellor has been asked to submit a resignation letter. I guess the big shots are going to interview for their jobs again. It would be a good start, to put several of those guys on the curb.
Fall enrollment is projected to be off 5%, according to a well place source. Kind of scary.
The budget cuts in the departments are translating to lecturing staff being let go. Since they teach 4 classes each semester, there will be a whole lot of sections being canceled in the Fall. Because of union contracts and other agreements, only the dedicated teaching staff can be cut, everyone else is protected.
Pretty juicy for intersessional gossip.
