Alverno College declares financial emergency, plans to cut majors and graduate programs

Alverno College’s Board of Trustees has declared a financial emergency and is cutting one-third of its majors and one-quarter of its graduate programs, the school announced Friday.

Kathy Hudson, chair of the board, said the moves would “ultimately position Alverno College for a more financially sustainable future.” She added: “We remain dedicated to providing students a transformational education experience.”

As part of the restructuring, the south-side Milwaukee college, which traces its history back 137 years, will cut 25 full-time faculty positions and 12 full-time staff positions.
