ETSU Faces Budget Shortfall
Enrollment is down at ETSU, meaning a budget shortfall, but President Brian Noland says the university will continue to grow. Nolan says there has been a 3-percent decline in the numbers of students, which has resulted in a budget that is 3.7-million dollars below expectations. Noland wants to make short term moves that will have long term implications, rather than just resorting to cuts. He is asking departments to trim 1.5-percent and is instituting a hiring freeze. Cellphone allowances for staff who make more than 50-thousand dollars are being eliminated and vehicles will be replaced less often. That will make up much of the shortfall. (SH)
