NEW ORLEANS (AP)— Facing a $13 million deficit and an 11 percent drop in enrollment, Delgado Community College Chancellor Monty Sullivan said he’s placed a freeze on travel, spending and non-essential hiring. Sullivan announced the strategy Tuesday in speeches at Delgado’s Algiers and City Park campuses in New Orleans. Sullivan said no pay cuts are planned, but buyout packages to encourage early retirement are being considered. Sullivan said the proposed cuts should help preserve the college’s basic operations, lower the deficit and minimize the impact on students.
