WHEREAS, the Board of Trustees of Winthrop University has examined revised projected resources for Academic Year 2020-21 alongside an administrative plan to address the resulting budgetary challenges; and

 

WHEREAS, the Board of Trustees finds the administrative plan both educationally and fiscally sound in light of current circumstances, as well as sensitive to the financial constraints affecting Winthrop students and their families; and

 

WHEREAS, the members of the Board of Trustees recognize their fiduciary responsibility to ensure that the University's budget strikes a balance between actual resources and commitments.

 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Board authorizes the university administration to take the steps necessary to cut expenses including through the implementation of a furlough plan.  The furlough will provide options in addition to other cost saving measures, to address these financial challenges in a way that maximizes the University’s ability to continue to perform its critical educational mission.
