Letter from the Steven Hunt, Interim President
In an effort to be proactive due to enrollment decline and the need for Robeson Community College to engage in an extremely lean fiscal year, some very difficult cost-cutting and realignment decisions had to be made.
These decisions include non-renewals, contractual & part-time services, and supplies were based on program enrollment trends and strategic plans for future enrollment growth meeting workforce and program demand.
These decisions were made over several weeks of deliberation involving input from various levels of leadership within the organization. Decisions such as these are never easy but demanded by a 38.4% reduction in enrollment, budgeted full-time equivalents, over a 9-year time span.
– Steven Hunt, Interim President & Vice President of Workforce Development & Continuing Education
