25 faculty positions will be cut at Southern Oregon University as part of the school’s retrenchment. The physics program will be cut. So will majors in art history and French and minors in geology, geography and photography. International studies and fine arts will be spared cuts. All told, SOU expects to save $7.8 million dollars on a one-time basis and $6.1 million annually. The physic program, which graduated no students last year, could eventually be restored.
