Oregon State University faculty senators voted in favor of implementing mandatory furloughs for all faculty, in a move university officials call unprecedented.

After more than 90 minutes of debate and discussion, faculty senators stood and raised their hands for a vote. The proposal was accepted by a vote of 86 to 17. Under the proposal, faculty members will have to take a minimum of three unpaid days and a maximum of 12, depending on their salaries and whether they're on nine-month or 12-month contracts.
