Wright State trustees approve 2019 budget: A breakdown of funding by department

Wright State University’s board of trustees approved a budget on Friday that projects around a $10-million decline in revenue but still aims to add around $3 million to the school’s reserve fund.

To do that, more budget cuts will be enacted at WSU, including the possibility of layoffs. Up to 40 people could be laid off in the coming year, president Cheryl Schrader told the Wright State board of trustees on Friday. That number could change though depending on attrition.
