Wright State University To Make Staff Cuts

Wright State University is terminating employees as a part of a larger effort to trim their budget.

Some Wright State staff members received letters this week notifying them that their positions would be cut due to "financial exigency.”

That term is generally used to describe money woes severe enough to put the university at risk of closure. A spokesperson for school later said using that term was a mistake.

Wright State has struggled recently due to lower student enrollment and state budget cuts for higher education.

The university hopes to cut 4% of their budget in the next year. They’re aiming to shave 19 million dollars total in the next 2 years.
