BREAKING: “Word of mouth” suggests as many as 15 faculty positions could be cut at U of Iowa

The Des Moines Register has the details.

Leadership at the CLAS did not respond to inquiries about how many faculty across the campus have been notified that their positions will be eliminated. But Loren Glass, UI chapter president of the American Association of University Professors, is keeping a count through word of mouth. By his estimate, the college will lose 15 faculty positions.

If I’m understanding the story correctly, the 15 positions are all in one college. That might mean other colleges at UI also will face faculty cuts.

The announcement comes o the same day Kean University faculty, alums and students announced a rally to protest planned cuts at that institution.

Meanwhile, efforts to hold off massive cuts in the CUNY system continue. But news of a drop in projected fall enrollment won’t help the cause.
