SF State Announces Layoffs

Friday, September 11, 2020

SF WEEKLY -- Katie Murphy, an academic office coordinator in the department of communications and a CSUEU representative, is not being laid off, but is concerned about the layoffs’ impact on her colleagues as well as the University’s functioning. She says that SF State has long had difficulties helping students navigate campus bureaucracy when it comes to housing, course selection, and academic advising, contributing to issues with student retention.

“It’s only going to increase SF State’s reputation as a place where students can’t get help,” Murphy says. “And students need more help than ever.”
