WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Purdue plans to consolidate dining services to save money for students and the university. They're consolidating Purdue's Memorial Union and Residence Hall Dining.
Purdue Vice President of Housing and Food Services, Beth McCuskey, said 10 manager positions will be removed, but they don't plan on eliminating any staff members.
McCuskey said the consolidation will initially save the university $300,000.
“We looked at our peers, we looked at what other schools do and how they do the work and we believe that this is a much more solid structure and we'll save money for our students,” said McCuskey.
McCuskey said the main goal is to make the dining program and dining board plans more affordable for students.
