UVM College of Arts and Sciences looks to eliminate non-tenured faculty positions

The UVM College of Arts and Sciences is considering the elimination of 25 percent of all full-time non-tenured faculty and 40 percent of part-time non-tenured faculty over the next five years, according to an internal UVM communication.

William Falls, the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, announced the proposed faculty cuts to department heads in an email dated Jan. 18.

The reduction in force would be in response to new budgeting mandates that require UVM departments to balance budgets based on tuition income from student enrollment in courses.

The layoffs under consideration are among the more palatable options offered by the College of Arts and Sciences, according to a letter sent by Tom Streeter, a professor of sociology and president of the faculty union, United Academics, to colleagues.
