ECC to cut additional 60 non-faculty jobs

ORCHARD PARK, NY (WIVB) – An Erie Community College official confirmed Friday to News 4 that the school’s Board of Trustees voted to eliminate 60 non-faculty positions.

The official said another 50 people had taken early retirement. Earlier this month, SUNY Erie’s board of trustees made 90 cuts to support staff, but some of those workers will gain jobs elsewhere in the county. This equates to approximately 200 jobs, a move that will save the college $8 million.

That still leaves a hole of about $1 million, but this official believes that could be offset by a surge in enrollment. However, the school has seen a steady decline in enrollment, which has fallen by nearly 50% over the past 11 years. The school currently has approximately 8,000 enrolled students.

The college will evaluate where the enrollment is after the fall semester and determine if further cuts are needed at that time.
