SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. (AP) – Slippery Rock University is having an easier time dealing with financial issues compared to the other 13 State System of Higher Education schools.

The Butler Eagle reports that only one tenured professor will be eliminated for the coming academic year. Other schools have had to cut dozens of faculty.

But Slippery Rock President Cheryl Norton says that the 2014-2015 budget will be much more difficult to balance. She projects a total deficit that will rise to $28.9 million over the next three years, due to decreasing student enrollment, flat state funding and increasing expenses.
