DePauw cuts 73 jobs, offers faculty retirement incentives

GREENCASTLE, Ind. (AP) — DePauw University is cutting 56 full-time administrative positions and 17 part-time jobs as part of a restructuring for the Greencastle liberal arts school. 

Board of Trustees Chairwoman Kathy Patterson Vrabeck and President D. Mark McCoy sent a letter to the university community Tuesday saying they’re making the cuts because DePauw cannot sustain the number of employees that it has. 

Fifteen of the full-time positions currently are vacant, as are two of the part-time jobs. 

Vrabeck and McCoy also say DePauw will offer a voluntary retirement incentive plan for faculty and make changes to sabbaticals. 

They say no faculty or academic programs are being eliminated.
