Interesting thought process.

Missouri losing students like crazy, and to help make up the lost revenue, it increases tuition 2.1% and cuts 400 jobs.

Let's hit the few(er) students/customers that do decide to come to your negatively-trending school/business by charging them more.

That's the mentality of higher education and their philosophy on funding. They wouldn't have a clue on running a business or an income statement. I am surprised they cut 400 jobs. I wonder how many were tenured? Or, was it just the grunts that actually do the day to day work to keep the school running? I'm betting on the latter.

"Approximately 400 positions will be eliminated. One half of those jobs are currently empty, 100 will come from retirement or attrition, and between 80 and 100 positions will be from actual layoffs. The chancellor wants to assure parents their children’s education will not be affected."

mizzery's recent woes have been largely brought on by themselves. The complete and total lack of any type of a competent response to the chaos that went on by anyone in a leadership role over there is largely what has fostered this demise in enrollment and the subsequent job cuts.

Of course the crap storm that initiated it all played a part, but it was exacerbated by the response of those in charge.

Couldn't happen to a better school.

Kowtowing to the whims of the football players was unbelievably short sighted.
