Herald-Review: SIU faculty warned of possible layoffs

CARBONDALE — Southern Illinois University at Carbondale is putting some employees on notice layoffs could happen later this year.

A letter from the university administration to the Non-Tenure Track Faculty Association earlier this week indicated some nontenured faculty positions may have to be eliminated, citing decreases in state funding and a possible decline in enrollment this fall. Full-time nontenured faculty will be notified of a decision by July 6, all others by July 21, the letter states.
