Bryan College, Facing Enrollment Drop, Cuts Positions

June 2, 2014

Bryan College, facing enrollment declines, is eliminating 20 of the 173 full-time employee positions, The Times Free Press reported. The college is also halting retirement contributions for a year, and imposing salary cuts on top administrators. The cuts come as some faculty members have already quit the Tennessee evangelical college because of a new statement of faith that they say required such a literal interpretation of the Bible that it was impossible for them to teach and sign the statement.
