OSU To Cut Millions In Spending Due To COVID-19


Ohio State University will make over 250 million dollars in budget cuts next year because of revenue losses and increased costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Trustees approved the budget Thursday.  177 million worth of cuts come from the university, and 77 million from the school's medical center.  Early in the pandemic OSU implemented a hiring freeze, put a hold on merit raises, and restricted travel. Those measures will remain in place through the end of the year.

A native of Chicago, naturalized citizen of Cincinnati and resident of Columbus, Alison attended Earlham College and the Ohio State University. She has equal passion for Midwest history, hockey and Slavic poetry.
