According to the Arizona Republic,

In a message to university faculty Friday, NAU President Rita Hartung Cheng said salary reductions are on the horizon for senior administration members, as well as “some combination of university-wide tiered pay cuts and/or furloughs across other levels of the organization,” the email read. …

Cheng conceded the unknown number of students who will be enrolled in the fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic and said the university is expecting up to a 20% decrease from the norm.

Because of this, NAU is projecting “significant” reductions to non-tenure track contracts. As a subsequent measure, the university expects to issue new contracts to approximately 95 percent of instructional staff, according to the email.
