(Kent) - There will be more COVID-19 related cuts coming at Kent State University, as the university's Board of Trustees voted Tuesday to approve a round of buyouts for eligible faculty members.
Back in May, about 300 KSU faculty and staff took advantage of voluntary buyouts. Most received three months salary, plus continuation of some benefits. That saved KSU over $26 million.
During the pandemic, a lot of KSU staff and faculty also saw their pay cut, but most of these people will have their pay back at original levels, as the university has more students enrolled than expected.
