Saint Joseph's College has detailed more job cuts as the result of its continuing financial troubles. In a notice to the state, the college says 18 positions on the Rensselaer campus will be eliminated beginning in May, in addition the 384 previously-announced layoffs.

Some of the affected positions include adjunct faculty, assistant coaches and security guards. SJC announced the elimination of 36 positions in late February, followed by more than 300 additional layoffs earlier this month.

Spencer Conroy, vice president for business affairs at Saint Joseph's, says the administration is exploring the financial feasibility of developing a plan to correct the school's financial woes. The administration's report is expected to be provided to the college's board of trustees by June 30, 2019.

"While we hope this action is temporary in nature, unless the report provides a viable option, this action is expected to be permanent in nature," Saint Joseph's said in its notice to the state.

The cuts follow St. Joe's decision to suspend campus activities following the spring 2017 semester due to what President Robert Pastoor called a "dire" financial situation. The college says it is working to schedule additional job cuts and will notify the state of the cuts within 60 days of the separation dates.
