NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Facing a $13 million deficit and an 11 percent drop in enrollment, Delgado Community College Chancellor Monty Sullivan says he's placed a freeze on travel, spending and non-essential hiring.
The Times-Picayune reports Sullivan announced the strategy Tuesday in speeches at Delgado's Algiers and City Park campuses in New Orleans.
Sullivan says no pay cuts are planned but buyout packages to encourage early retirement are being considered.
Sullivan says the proposed cuts should help preserve the college's basic operations, lower the deficit and minimize the impact on students.
