LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — An enrollment projection for the biggest school at the University of Kansas is offering a glimpse at the impact of the coronavirus pandemic for the fall semester as it struggles to fill classes.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the university has told its faculty members in an email that enrollment for the fall semester is down 12% from where it was in 2019 and 9% from its three-year average, the Lawrence Journal-World reported.
John Colombo, the school’s interim dean, also said some mid-to-upper level classes are not expected to meet the minimum enrollment requirement of 12 students.
