Stillman College implements furloughs

Posted: Updated:

   Stillman college says enrollment is up.   There are about a thousand students enrolled right now.  Alumni donations for the private institution have even spiked 30 percent.

   But, Thursday, Stillman's Interim President, Peter Millet said furloughs are needed to avoid pay cuts or layoffs to help keep the school financially sound.  So, employees will each be required to take four days off during the months of April and May.

   The furloughs will only affect faculty and staff...not hourly plant workers.

    In a statement, Interim President Millet says he believes the decision regarding furloughs will benefit the college and stakeholders of the institution in the future.

   Millet also says Stillman is engaging in new opportunities to attract non-traditional students to the school in order to maintain a growth in enrollment.
