Olympia, Washington: The student protests a year ago due to liberal intolerance, which included death threats to teachers and administrators and culminated in a siege over the school, contributed to the already declining enrollment. As a result, the budget will be cut by $6 million, which will lead to further declines in enrollment.

Evergreen State College of “no-whites-allowed” fame is slashing its budget, hiking student fees and planning for layoffs due to plunging enrollment numbers.

From The Olympian:

The Evergreen State College will look to cut more than 10 percent from its operating budget for 2018-19 and raise student fees because of declining enrollment.

In a memo to the college’s board of trustees, Evergreen President George Bridges wrote that cuts totaling $5.9 million are needed because of lower-than-expected tuition revenue. This will require “some” layoffs and eliminating “many positions that are currently vacant,” according to Bridges.

They’re dramatically jacking up fees (which will no doubt lead to further enrollment declines):

▪ The new student fee, which students pay once when they start at Evergreen, would go up $100 to $275 for those starting in the fall and to $145 for those starting in the winter or spring.

▪ The wellness fee, which covers basic health services and referrals to off-campus providers, would go up $111 to $420 per year.

▪ The services and activities fee would go up $25 to $649 per year for full-time students.
