Petition to STOP Brookdale Layoffs!
Help us STOP layoffs and budget cuts at Brookdale Community College
Facing steep cuts to Brookdale's 2015 budget, the Brookdale Board of Trustees recently recommended the elimination of 210 faculty and staff positions.
Monmouth County government has cut 23% of its funding, or $6 million, to Brookdale Community College in just 3 years. This does not include the additional $1.5 million that is expected to be cut out of 2015's funding.
12% Drop in 3 Years
Brookdale has seen a sharp decline in enrollment, to the tune of 12% in just 3 years. The lack of faculty and services is expected to drive this number further.
