GRAND RAPIDS (AP) - Calvin College is cutting 22 faculty and staff positions as the Christian liberal arts school looks to cut long-term expenses and its 2013-14 budget.

The staffing reductions were done through layoffs, not renewing contracts for some temporary faculty and attrition. The cuts were announced in a letter Thursday by school President Michael Le Roy.

Calvin College has about 750 faculty and staff. The cost-cutting measures come as the Grand Rapids school looks to reduce long-term debt that grew to $115 million between 1997 and 2012. It’s also trimming its 2013-14 budget by $4.7 million.
