Marquette University will lay off two dozen employees and leave roughly 50 other positions unfilled, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. University officials announced the cuts in a campus-wide email, the newspaper said, citing increased competition for students amid a pending decline in the number of traditional-age students in Wisconsin and surrounding states. The reductions amount to 2.5┬ápercent of the university’s 2,900-plus employees, Marquette officials said.
