CASTLETON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s Castleton University is eliminating two dean positions as part of its budget restructuring plan.

The school announced last week that it would be reducing its staff through layoffs, elimination of positions and early retirements as part of an effort to close a $1.5 million operating loss for the current year.

Spokesman Jeff Weld told Vermont Public Radio that Dean of Administration Scott Dikeman and the Dean of Entrepreneurial Programs Lyle Jepson will both lose their positions.

Weld said the university will also move away from its formal partnership with the Rutland Economic Development Corporation, which Jepson heads.

Since 2000, Castleton enrollment grew from about 1,200 to more than 2,000 in 2014. Enrollment now stands at around 1,800 full-time undergraduates.
