The president of Radford University, Penelope Kyle, has offered to reverse two layoffs of student services administrators, following widespread objections by student and faculty leaders to both the original layoff decision and the way it was carried out, The Roanoke Times reported. While deep budget cuts in Virginia have made campus cuts no surprise, the elimination of the jobs of the two officials, both seen as key figures on campus, stunned many at Radford. It is unclear whether the officials, who were given hours to leave campus when they lost their jobs, will accept the university's offer.
