As Wheeling Jesuit University struggles with how to proceed in light of financial exigency, its faculty has some thoughts on the subject.
Faculty Council Chair Dr. Jessica Wrobleski says if WJU closes or cuts programs, it should honor its responsibilities to its students, alumni and employees.
She says students should be given assistance in transferring if their major is no longer offered, or if the school closes altogether.
And she says the University should honor its employees by making provisions for severance plans for both contract and non-contract employees.
And she says both faculty and students believe the University should adopt a policy of complete transparency.
