All departments asked to cut back
Last Updated: 242 days ago
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue University is cutting 33 positions after President Mitch Daniels called on all departments to trim costs amid a two-year tuition freeze.
The cuts will affect the school's Printing Services, reducing the number of employees from 48 to 15.
Purdue officials cited fewer printing projects and revenue loss for the layoffs.
The 33 employees' last day will be May 3.
Purdue's tuition freeze means the cost of basic in-state tuition will remain at about $10,000 until the end of the 2014-2015 school year, marking the first year without an increase since 1976.
Daniels has said $40 million will need to be cut from Purdue's budget to accommodate the freeze.
