Wright State’s new semester begins Monday, Aug 27. University officials are continuing to grapple with major staffing and budget issues.

 

 Some of these problems are holdovers from the last school year, when Wright State trustees announced new budget cuts were needed to prevent state financial oversight.

 

For more on this situation, and ongoing faculty union contract negotiations, WYSO’s Jess Mador spoke with education reporter April Laissle.

Last week, Wright State officials announced they must cut another $10 million from the school’s budget before June 30 to avoid being placed on state fiscal watch.

It’s the latest development in Wright State’s years-long financial crisis, which was prompted in part by widespread overspending. WYSO’s Jess Mador spoke with education reporter April Laissle about how further budget cuts could impact ongoing faculty contract talks.
