PSU Looking at $4M Deficit

Plattsburgh State University would have to cut nearly 70 positions to wipe out a multi-million-dollar budget deficit. The Press Republican reports that the school could up tuition nearly 700 dollars more. University officials say the school will be negatively affected. Vice President for Administration John Homburger said quote -- “We are going to be smaller and hopefully, we will come out of it stronger, but that is very difficult to see right now. It hinges so much on making the right decisions.” Plattsburgh State is faced with a permanent campus deficit of roughly $3.8 million.
