Va. University Asking Faculty to Take Summers Off

April 21, 2010

Regent University is trying to save money by asking faculty who have 12-month contracts to take summers off.

President-elect Carlos Campo told faculty members in a memo that the voluntary furloughs would help the school's budget.

Taking summers off would be a 18-percent pay cut. But some faculty could earn extra money teaching summer courses.

Campo says nearly 140 of Regent's full-time faculty members are on 12-month contracts. The remainder are on nine-month contracts.
