These positions include student workers in the computer laboratories, Cage equipment checkout employees, as well as academic advising personnel in Student Services. Over the last five (5) years, Gaylord College has experienced significant cuts to its E & G budget. This has resulted in more full time staff (e.g. academic advisers) being funded through student fee revenues. A flat to declining budget, coupled with flat or declining enrollments necessitate increased funding.Over the last five (5) years, Gaylord College has experienced significant cuts to its E & G budget.
