Hawkeye Community College fires seven instructors

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Hawkeye Community College has laid off at least seven instructors.

The board of trustees held a special meeting Wednesday to take the action, which they say is part of an effort to save the school 1.8 million dollars this year.

The seven are part of 31 regular part-time faculty members who initially requested hearings and filed grievances after receiving layoff notices a year ago.

The board will hold hearings next week on the future of four full-time faculty members also given layoff notices last year.
