BATON ROUGE, LA (KPLC) - It's being called the largest layoff in LSU history. Hundreds of instructors are in danger of losing their jobs.
Tuesday, they're expecting to get a letter that warns they will lose their jobs in the coming year if the university can't come up with another way to trim the $13 million in cuts ordered by Governor Bobby Jindal. So, instructors are gearing up for a protest today.
They're inviting students and the general public to show up for a memorial service at the flag pole on campus today from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. They'll be protesting the cuts and wearing all black.
They say they're mourning the loss of the university's flag ship status.
We'll keep you posted on the situation.
