Marshall University in West Virginia to cut employee pay

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Marshall University in West Virginia will impose pay cuts affecting 650 employees due to the coronavirus pandemic reducing enrollment, the school’s president announced on Thursday.

The school faces a fall enrollment decrease of 4.6%, which is better than initial expectations, according to a news release. But the school has fewer out-of-state and international students, resulting in a revenue hit of $3.6 million.

Marshall University had previously cut pay for 140 employees making $100,000 or more annually.

1. In High School I knew MU students & had the chance

to attend lectures given by Buckminster Fuller, John Kenneth Galbraith, Angela Davis, Wm. F. Buckley, met Abby Hoffman and other noted public figures. What a difference 30-40 years makes.
