"Significant and difficult choices" to be made at Queen's

November 27, 2009

Delivering his first financial update as principal of Queen's University last Thursday, Daniel Woolf stated there are "significant and difficult choices" to be made at the university. The school's board of trustees has told administrators to reduce the annual deficit to zero by the end of the 2012 fiscal year. Cost-cutting measures include a salary freeze among senior administration and senior staff, and Queen's is reviewing its property holdings to see what real estate could be sold. Woolf reported that the faculty association executive had declined his proposal that faculty accept a reduction in a previously negotiated salary increase.
