King University Cuts Full-Time Faculty Positions

King University Cuts Full-Time Faculty Positions

October 30, 2017

King University in Tennessee plans to cut more than a dozen jobs, including nine full-time faculty positions at the Bristol campus and two at the Knoxville campus, the Bristol Herald Courier reported.  The private university blames the decision on enrollment numbers, which have dropped from about 2,800 to in 2016-17 to 2,100 this academic year. It attributed that drop to declining enrollment in community colleges, from which many students enroll in King, and the economy over all.

Harvard’s Surplus May Be ‘High-Water Mark’

Harvard’s Surplus May Be ‘High-Water Mark’

October 27, 2017

The population of college-bound students is on the decline. The cost of tuition is growing increasingly unaffordable for many families. And endowment returns are expected to decrease.  It’s enough to make even the richest university in the world sweat, a bit, under the financial pressure.  Harvard University ended the 2017 fiscal year with a $114 million surplus, $37 million more than last year, due primarily to money it saved by refinancing its debt, officials said on Thursday.

Georgetown Students Have Filed a Discrimination Complaint Against a Campus Group Promoting Heterosexual Marriage

Georgetown Students Have Filed a Discrimination Complaint Against a...

October 26, 2017

A Catholic student group at Georgetown University that promotes the benefits of traditional marriage risks losing its funding and other university benefits after being accused of fostering hatred and intolerance.   Love Saxa advocates for marriage as “a monogamous and permanent union between a man and a woman,” the group states in its constitution.  That definition of marriage happens to be in line with that espoused by the Catholic Church, raising the question of how administrators at Georgetown, the United States’ oldest Catholic and Jesuit institution of higher learning, will handle the controversy if it eventually comes before them.
