More Cuts are in Store for West Virginia University

By Connect-Bridgeport Staff on September 18, 2023 via

According to MetroNews, the cuts at West Virginia University aren’t over.
The Board of Governors gave final approval on Friday of cuts that will eliminate 28 majors, scale back others and result in cutting 143 faculty positions. WVU has said the steps to make those changes happen begin today, shaping plans to allow students in programs being discontinued to finish their degrees and starting notifications for reductions in force.
“Over the next month, we’ll be obviously following a process that we have outlined to the university community, and we hope to have this process completed by the 15th of October,” University President Gordon Gee said today on MetroNews’ “Talkline.”
University leaders have alluded to additional upcoming decisions about cuts. West Virginia Watch reported today that programs under review include the libraries, Honors College, Office of Global Affairs, LGBTQ+ Center and the Women’s Resource Center.
