INSTITUTE, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The West Virginia State University Board of Governors met Thursday morning and determined that 16 positions will be cut.

The university did not announce which department or program cuts where were made, but said no particular department or program suffered the majority of the cuts.

The Board says that this is “a comprehensive cost savings plan to ensure the long-term financial stability of the institution.”

The university is also implementing a hiring freeze for non-essential positions. Spending will be reduced, as well as other cost-effective measures.

The university’s final budget plan will be announced next week.
