Chenette Breaks Silence About Cuts

Dean Chenette broke his silence today and sent a statement to The Miscellany News. Here's an excerpt: “In our recommendations for cuts, my office looked at areas where reductions of staffing were contractually possible and then balanced curricular need, enrollment patterns, equity, degree of team teaching, and spousal or partner employment to the best of our ability...We made our recommendations fully cognizant that there might be better ways of achieving the level of savings required and invited suggestions of alternatives that would achieve similar savings. Discussions of such alternatives continue with some departments.”
