Tabor mum about cuts

News editor

Tabor College administration is holding their cards close to the chests on budget cuts the board of directors approved at its February meeting.

A series of actions will be taken during upcoming months to reduce budget for the 2019-20, fiscal year including a two percent expense reduction, freezing all salaries, relocating Tabor’s online programs, and reducing payroll by more than $500,000.

Director of communications Don Ratzlaff said he was not able to comment and would have more information toward the end of the week.

Apparently faculty and staff will be cut. A March 1 press release said that combining these budget-reduction actions will lead to personnel changes and those affected have been notified.

Ratzlaff said in the release it’s Tabor policy not to give names of employees, faculty, and staff who are affected.

A call to President Jules Ganzer’s office was referred back to Ratzlaff.
