JONESBORO — Arkansas State University is closing its decades-old Continuing Education and Community Outreach Center.

The Jonesboro Sun reports that Vice Chancellor and Provost Lynita Cooksey announced the closure on Tuesday.

She says the university is attempting to streamline operations and reduce duplicated work. She says other departments will absorb the functions of the center and no services will be cut.

It's unclear if the closure will result in layoffs. Cooksey says the nine staff members were offered or reassigned to vacant positions at the university.
