It seems that the code in nwu-lecture-style:

\insertshortauthor[width=2cm-2pt,center,respectlinebreaks]\par%

is not working? I tried:

\insertshortauthor[width=2cm minus 2pt,center,respectlinebreaks]\par%

It is not working neither, how to solve it?

It works when I use:

\newlength{\shortauthor}
\setlength{\shortauthor}{2cm minus 2pt}
\insertshortauthor[width=\shortauthor,center,respectlinebreaks]\par%

use

 \insertshortauthor[width=\dimexpr2cm-2pt,center,respectlinebreaks]\par%
