Elizabeth City State U faces $5 million shortfall

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (AP) - The head of the University of North Carolina system says Elizabeth City State University faces a shortfall of $5 million.

The Daily Advance of Elizabeth City reported (http://bit.ly/18UEoq1) that UNC President Tom Ross blamed the shortfall on reduced enrollment and state budget cuts.

Ross warned faculty and staff Tuesday that "hard decisions" are ahead, pointing out the biggest expense is personnel. No specific cuts or layoffs were announced.

Interim chancellor Charles Becton reported enrollment for the fall semester is just over 2,400 students. School officials had hoped for 2,500.

The school also had hoped the projected shortfall would be around $3.5 million.

The school has cut pay for a number of faculty members.

The school also has also increased instructors' workloads and class sizes.
