the budget crisis
Introduction

S ince the end of last semester, there has been a lot of conversation on campus surrounding the alleged budget crisis that Ohio University is facing.

The budget crisis landing page will be updated throughout the semester to provide information on issues surrounding the budget.

For the university, it is required to make changes for it to be successful moving forward. Enrollment is down for the university, which means less money is coming into the university. Those in charge of planning have to adjust the budget to make up for the money the university is losing.

On the other side, OU faculty and staff members are worried about what this means for their jobs as well as what programs will still be available for students.

This landing page contains different articles related to explaining the budget, the groups involved and other issues to help our readers get a better understanding about the budget crisis.

Editor’s note: The introduction has been updated to provide a better explainer for the landing page.
