MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) - Morehead State University has announced budget recommendations, including the elimination of 64 positions.
Multiple news outlets report school officials made the announcement Thursday.
President Wayne D. Andrews said in a statement that the cuts are in response to a budget deficit of more than $9.7 million because of declining enrollment, population and a decrease in state funding.
Of the positions proposed to be eliminated, 30 are filled and 34 are vacant. Other recommendations include a total of $4.9 million in revenue enhancements and $718,594 reductions in the university’s operating budget.
A final budget recommendation is expected to be presented to the Board of Regents in June.
