U Of Illinois Responds To Governor's Budget - SCOTT CAMERON, WUIS

Christophe Pierre, the U of I's Vice President for Academic Affairs, calls today's (Wednesday's) budget proposal disappointing. He says the university has other sources of revenue, but many come with restrictions on how the money is spent. "for example, research that we need to spend according to the stipulations of the sponsor and for scholarships, for faculty chairs according to the gift agreements. So, the proposed cut is very significant." Including tuition, grants, gifts and other revenues, the proposed state funding would cut about 6 percent from the U of I's overall budget.
