The Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, struggling to recover from economic hardship brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, made several cuts to staff and student services ahead of the fall semester in an effort to become financially sound again.

Total enrollment for degree-earners, once typically about 2,100, has leveled at about 1,900, Hoi said.
