NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

Over 30 positions at Xavier University have been or will be cut, according to a letter dated Tuesday by President Michael J. Graham, S.J.

In all, 51 of nearly 1,000 positions, including 20 currently vacant, have been cut.

"...The changing world of higher education requires a tighter alignment of all our resources with our mission, vision and strategy to secure the long-term health and vitality of Xavier University and the students we serve," writers Graham to the XU community.
