Norfolk, Va. – On Thursday, faculty members at Norfolk State University held a meeting to brace for a possible decline in enrollment for the next school year.

Interim President and CEO Eddie N. Moore, Jr. released a statement about this meeting.

In it, he says the university discussed the impact of potential enrollment shortfalls for 2016 but the university is not operating at a deficit.

“Not only is the campus compliant at both the federal and state levels, the administration anticipates ending the fiscal year in a solid financial position,” says Moore.

He says they are looking at all outcomes and are preparing for the future which could include right sizing adjunct and part-time positions.

They are also looking to review their need to fill vacant positions.

Students and staff have met to discuss how the university can operate better after a decline in enrollment.
