CORRECTION: March 29, 2010

An earlier version of the Mar. 29 news article "Stress of 2009 Staff Cuts Lingers in FAS" incorrectly stated that the University eliminated 275 staff positions in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. In fact, 275 staff positions were cut across the University, and not just in FAS.

The article also stated that 531 staffers accepted an early retirement package offered by FAS. In fact, the figure represents the number of staff workers from across the University.
