Vermont's Johnson State College cuts 5 positions

JOHNSON, Vt. (AP) Officials at Vermont's Johnson State College say they're cutting five staff positions and reducing eight others to help eliminate a $1.5 million gap in the 2015 budget.

The college says five full-time administrative and service positions have been cut. In addition, seven positions have been scaled back to 80 percent of full time, and another has been converted to half time.

The reductions will save about $450,000 in salaries and benefits next year.

Johnson State College President Barbara Murphy says the cuts are "painful and difficult."

She says the reductions are in response to a dip in enrollment and flat financial support from the state of Vermont. She says colleges throughout Vermont and the nation are facing similar challenges.
