Number of UNC administrators increases
RALEIGH, N.C. — A newspaper analysis shows that the number of administrators at University of North Carolina system schools has grown 28 percent in the past five years.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Monday that the rate is faster than the growth of teaching positions or student enrollment.
The analysis shows the 16-campus system had 1,623 administrative jobs last year, up from 1,269 five years ago. The 28 percent growth rate is higher than the 24 percent growth in faculty and other teaching positions and the 14 percent growth in student enrollment.
UNC President Erskine Bowles is among those who say they’re looking to cut positions. The state budget seeks to cut $73 million from UNC schools, recommending the elimination of senior and middle management positions.
