NIU should keep community in loop with budget decisions - Northern Star Editorial Board

NIU officials must work harder than ever before to ensure community members know what budget NIU will push for and what sacrifices it is willing to make in the coming months. The state is debating Gov. Bruce Rauner’s proposed $29 million cut to the funding Illinois gives NIU. University officials will present a budget to the Legislature’s appropriations committee in late March and will “discuss with them the impact that these cuts will have on NIU and our ability to achieve career success,” said Chief Financial Officer Alan Phillips. The proposed cut will deeply affect NIU and the quality of the education it offers as there would be potential layoffs and less money for projects, among other things. NIU must work to keep the community informed and avoid confusion and uncertainty. http://northernstar.info/opinion/niu-should-keep-community-in-loop-with-budget-decisions/article_f7290e98-bb14-11e4-895d-7b6cb128e6ec.html
