Thread regarding Wheeling Jesuit University layoffs

President and VP placed on admin leave

"In the latest shift, the university announced the president and a vice president have been placed on administrative leave."

"The episode is one of many in a year of problems for the institution, which has included a declaration of financial exigency as well as layoffs for a number of faculty members. The cuts eliminated the history, theology, philosophy, literature and engineering majors, as well as 20 of the university’s full-time faculty members."

“This might be my bias showing, but I would be shocked if the university was open next fall,” Rutherford said. “You cut 40 percent of your faculty and about two-thirds of your majors, start abolishing athletic teams; its only real benefactor is the local diocese, which is mired in its own scandal, and finally it has lost whatever goodwill and support it had among the community as well as alumni – things aren't good.”
