...An emergency telephonic meeting was held Wednesday to discuss Gov. Chet Culver’s announcement last week of a 10 percent across-the-board state budget cut. ISU administrators and campus leaders, along with members of the press, participated via a conference call... Miles also asked the presidents to consider temporary layoffs, temporary salary reductions and temporary benefit reductions. Permanent layoffs were suggested as a last resort.... “University leadership has a lot of work to do in the next few weeks,” Geoffroy said.
