In five years, state funding for GSU has dropped from $31 million to $14 million, a 57 percent cut in funding, which is producing issues for teachers and students.
“The more we cut faculty, the fewer classes we can offer,” said David Hodges, 57, a humanities professor from Orlando, Fla. “To my knowledge, at least four faculty members have been laid off.”
