In an effort to manage rising costs, Pikeville College is restructuring its undergraduate program, cutting staff positions and limiting expenditures to only essential spending. The private liberal arts college has cut 25 of its 105 staff positions and plans to eliminate 15 of 105 faculty positions over the course of the coming 18 months. Terry Dotson, chairman of the board for Pikeville College, told The Appalachian News-Express that the combination of stagnant enrollment, a shaky national economy and increased energy, fuel and health care costs have taken a toll on the college’s finances.
