Brandon to leave 5 per cent of prof jobs empty

University needs to find $1.2 million in cuts to balance its budget

According to the Winnipeg Free Press, Brandon University is going to leave five per cent of its professor positions vacant for the next school year.

Jobs won’t be eliminated, but 11 of 220 faculty positions will be left vacant next year, according to the school’s vice-president of finance.

The university needs to cut about $1.25 million, and is attempting to balance its budget by leaving the jobs vacant, digging into reserve funds and making a variety of small cuts across the school’s campus. For more, click here.
