MOORHEAD – Dozens of older and experienced faculty members at Minnesota State University Moorhead were notified last week that they are eligible for an early retirement package.


MSUM is looking to the early retirement of faculty members to offset a $4.9 million budget deficit and to avoid layoffs. The reduction in faculty members will align with the school’s decreased enrollment, which dropped by 566 students between 2010 and 2013.
