Ransdell to Inform WKU Faculty/Staff of Departmental Changes
WKU employees impacted by departmental consolidations should know by Wednesday if they are affected by the moves.
For weeks, WKU President Gary Ransdell has been warning that the school was going to have to cut personnel in light of an expected $2.1 million dollar budget cut next fiscal year. But this week Dr. Ransdell said the school's vice-presidents were able to find ways to consolidate certain operations and departments without costing any jobs.
Dr. Ransdell says the school has been notifying those workers impacted by the changes this week. The WKU president said he will send an email to all faculty and staff either Wednesday or Thursday detailing the moves the school has made regarding consolidations.
Ransdell added he is happy the school has found a way to deal with the budget cut that didn't involve personnel or salary reductions.
