The staffing reductions were done through layoffs, not renewing contracts for some temporary faculty and attrition.

The cuts were announced in a letter Thursday by school President Michael Le Roy.

Calvin College has about 750 faculty and staff. The cost-cutting measures come as the Grand Rapids school looks to reduce long-term debt that grew to $115 million between 1997 and 2012.

It's also trimming its 2013-14 budget by $4.7 million.



Looks like our collapsing economy in hitting every area of employment. Our technology will make they way we make money obsolete. So then what's next? Tokens? Credits? Slavery?
