D'Youville College to lay off employees furloughed since spring

Employees of D'Youville College who have been furloughed since spring will be laid off this week, college President Lorrie Clemo said Monday.

The college is also offering a voluntary retirement incentive to help offset revenue declines driven largely by Covid-19 and a related enrollment drop.

The workers were originally furloughed in April and May. Clemo did not specify how many people will be affected by the layoffs, but she said they represent about 6% of the college's total workforce. In reporting data for the Business First Colleges and Universities List, D'Youville administrators reported this month that 397 full-time and 249 part-time employees worked there.

The savings amount to roughly 3.5% of the college budget, which administrators reported for The List as being $66.77 million.

Clemo said the positions were mainly administrative and support services jobs — some of those responsibilities could be combined and coronavirus has made some support- and event-related jobs impossible to perform.

The college saw enrollment decline 10% this fall to 2,743, though that number could climb as late-starting students are factored in. The decrease played a big part in an 8% revenue decline at the Buffalo institution. Clemo noted that the school beat projections nationally, with some schools seeing enrollment drop 20% to 40%, but coronavirus did derail projections of increased enrollment this academic year.
