La Salle University Key Developments

La Salle University to Lay Off 3% of its Workforce

La Salle University issued a letter that said it will lay off 23 employees as it faces lower freshman enrollment and budget deficits. The university is expecting a freshman class of 725, well below a target figure and 135 less than 2014 freshman class of 860 students. Total undergraduate enrollment is expected to be 3,164. This crisis is affecting Catholic universities in particular as parishes are shuttered and Catholic high schools consolidate.
