SOU Planning Layoffs

Southern Oregon University plans to lay off at least a dozen staff members after June, and a number of contract employees should expect to see their annual contracts ended. A university spokesman calls the layoffs painful but necessary because the university has to cut about $2.5 million to balance its
budget. The school plans other steps, such as halting job searches. The Ashland Daily Tidings reports university has seen record enrollment numbers the past three years, with tuition receipts climbing steadily. Tuition went up 6.8
percent for the current academic year.
     But the university says cuts in state aid have more than offset
those increases, and this is the fourth spring in a row of budget
reductions.
     A university official says the cuts will mean larger class
sizes.
