WASHINGTON (AP) - George Washington University won’t renew one-year contracts of 10 full-time faculty members at its Corcoran school amid declining enrollment at the art school.

The Washington Post reports (https://wapo.st/1ThWDxp) they joined the university’s faculty when it took control of the school in 2014 as part of a plan to address the financial struggles of the Corcoran Gallery of Art and its school.

The Post reports the school’s enrollment was 294 for the academic year that just ended, compared with 404 students in the fall of 2014.

The university notified the faculty members Monday that their contracts wouldn’t be renewed.

A university spokeswoman told the newspaper that nine other former Corcoran teachers will be offered three-year contracts. They join 40 university faculty at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.
