Here are the dollars and cents consequences of the layoff numbers I discussed yesterday. The clear priorities of the members of the administration tasked with making responsible personnel decisions are on display. They take care of their own operations while they screw the students at this school. I've attached a handy-dandy chart to the bottom of this post, here's the summary. In Spring 2016, the University spent $3.26 million in salaries for the 53 employees in the kingdoms ruled by Angela Henderson, Renee Mitchell and Cecil Lucy. In contrast, the University spent nearly $4.24 million in salaries for the 97 employees in areas necessary for our students to be admitted, select their schedules, receive financial aid, and utilize the school's academic resources: Admissions, Advising, Financial Aid, Application Services (Information Technology), and of course, the Library.
After the Spring massacre, the payroll expenditures of the administrative departments led by the three persons most responsible for the layoff decisions stood at almost $2.93 million, for the 46 remaining employees. In contrast, salaries for the surviving 37 employees serving our students reached nearly $2.2 million. The MAC members cut their own operations by just over 10 percent, while trimming student services expenses by 48 percent. Obviously, in the estimation of these three administrators, this University has little need for any student support services. For those of you who are visual learners, here's the chart:
