Alt-left chaos has ruined University of Missouri: deficit nears $50 million, layoffs now over 180 jobs

The University of Missouri has announced more layoffs as part of its attempts to survive the near-$50 million budget shortfall, part of an ongoing crisis that has gripped the school since it was overtaken by leftist  activists over the last several years.

While the economy may be showing signs of strength, low unemployment, rising consumer confidence, Mizzou will now have to cut some faculty, 155 other non-filled positions, according to new reports.

The Missourian notes that “MU will eliminate 185 positions from the payroll starting July 1” as Chancellor Alexander Cartwright maintains that, “The future looks very bright for Mizzou. We are focused on student success, strengthening our research productivity and engaging with Missourians to help find solutions to grand challenges.”

“All academic units sustained a cut of at least 6.8 percent in general revenue allocations, which is the base budget provided to each college, school or division for operations,” the article summarized. “The campus must close a $49 million gap in expected revenues and expenses in the budget for fiscal year 2019, which begins July 1. The total campuswide reduction in general revenue funding announced Thursday comes to $45.4 million, or 8.05 percent. The remaining $3.5 million needed to balance the budget will come from campus level resources.”

Cartwright said that “MU was setting aside $6.2 million for merit- based pay raises and an additional $8 million for scholarships and graduate student support, which will bring the campus investment to more than $100 million.”

“We had to protect our core,” Cartwright said. He defined MU’s “core” as those services deemed essential to student learning.

“What we wanted to do was make sure that we have those services that are needed first and foremost for our students. Those were where we prioritized,” Cartwright said.

The College Fix notes that “Mizzou’s troubles have continued since the school was gripped by a wave of racialized progressive protests, with students camping out on school property and accusing the university of racism and discrimination. Those protests resulted in the resignation of the school’s president; during the protests, a Mizzou professor, Melissa Click, also threatened a student-journalist and was ultimately charged with assaulting the student. The chancellor of the university also announced his resignation amid the protests.”
