In addition, a hold has been placed on “all non-critical university-funded capital projects,” new contractual agreements for goods and services have been frozen, and “all discretionary non-compensation spending” has been eliminated, the email said.
Campus facilities will be left in “a low energy usage mode” where possible, the university also said.
WSU added that workforce cuts may be considered at some point in the future.
“To date, Wright State has been committed to maintaining all personnel and positions. The state of Ohio has indicated they will release a plan addressing the return to work for Ohio businesses this week. We will review the plan and its impact on university operations in order to determine future staffing plans, which may include reductions in force.”
A university spokesman Monday said WSU leaders would not comment beyond the campus email for the moment.
