I read the press release as them committing to keep the class size close to what it is now. They are just going to use this as an opportunity to get rid of redundant faculty and admins. Wonder if tuition will go down or they just are trying to get back into the black.
The article I read had them ~2mil in the red last year combined. No way tuition is going down. This is just a way to shed overhead.
Although they sound like they want to keep class size close to what it is now, this move reeks of desperation and the PR isn't good. I think class sizes will drop simply because anybody who has done any research (I know, asking a lot) won't enroll there come fall. This natural selection should help employment prospects a bit for everyone else involved.
