MSU: Unpaid leave of absence for all faculty & staff

MOREHEAD, Ky. (WTVQ) – Morehead State University announced a 5 day unpaid leave of absence for all faculty and staff, citing budget problems.

On March 10, MSU President Wayne D. Andrews said declining enrollment and Governor Bevin’s proposed cuts had put enough pressure on their budget that they needed to somehow save over $4.5 million by June 30, 2016.

“These cuts, and the additional cuts proposed, strain our ability to  provide affordable access to quality academic programs, to educate  students for careers and jobs so important to the advancement of our  great state, and to take care of our community,” said President Andrews.  “Higher education is the solution, not the problem. Kentucky students,  families, and taxpayers deserve more – much more – not less.”
