Bradley expects enrollment drop, budget cuts

PEORIA (AP) — Bradley University President Joanne Glasser says freshman enrollment is expected to be down this fall and the private university is looking at budget cuts.

According to WCBU radio in Peoria (http://bit.ly/1qr8jiu ), Glasser said Wednesday during her state of the university address that Bradley expects about 940 incoming freshman to start school this fall. That would be a drop of 140, or almost 4 percent.

Glasser said the school is planning to balance its budget by making about $7.8 million in cuts. Advisory groups are reviewing university programs looking for potential cuts and employees probably will not get raises this year.

Glasser said Bradley also plans to increase its marketing efforts by focusing on success stories from students.
