Owens Community College will shift to a four-day work week for the summer at both its Findlay and Perrysburg campuses in an effort to save money, college officials announced Wednesday.

The college's board of trustees voted this week to close from Friday to Sunday beginning May 11 and ending July 31, Brian Paskvan, the vice president of administration, said Wednesday.

College employees will work the same number of hours, but they will be distributed between Monday and Thursday. The change is expected to be the first of several steps taken to save money.

"We're just trying to be forward thinking," Paskvan said.

The college is preparing for potential cuts in state funding this year. Owens receives half of its money from the state and the other half from tuition.
