Some Liberty University staff were told they don’t have a position any longer after a reorganization of its online management staff.
“As online education continues to evolve and become more competitive, we have to continually evaluate our strategies and position ourselves to be ready for the future by adjusting with changes in the marketplace,” said a statement issued by Liberty University. “These recent changes are unfortunate for those who are directly affected and Liberty never takes these decisions lightly. The university has assisted with the transition by giving a generous severance package and is encouraging each employee to seek employment in other areas of the university.”
This comes as online enrollment is down to 94,000 students, a drop of a few thousand students according to Liberty University Executive Director of External Communications Len Stevens.
