Dr. Patricia Limbert, the President of my university (Mississippi University for Women) just announced that over the next year we will have to cut our budget very substantially, so that we will probably lose something like 70 faculty and staff positions. For a small university like ours, it's a lot. Also, we might merge with a bigger school, likely Mississippi State University. If that happens, again, all kinds of position cuts are possible.

Please pray for us - faculty, staff, and also students who might also be suffering because of a possible tuition increase. Thank you!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

My dad is the president of university out west and he's facing the same agonizing decisions.  There's no easy solution and many are affected.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope you manage to find the best way forward.

God be with you - I will be thinking of you.
