SIU system works together to avoid budget cuts - Cody King, ASLESTLE

Student Government proposed Senate Resolution 15-09-02 during its meeting Friday, April 3, to recommend a reduction in the upcoming budget cuts heading for SIUE. If the budget cuts are enacted toward higher education as proposed, SIUE and other state universities can expect a 32 percent cut. According to Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Narbeth Emmanuel, even a 15 percent cut would have a negative effect on the university. “Fifteen percent will begin to have an enormous impact on our ability to provide our level of excellence,” Emmanuel said. With the senate bill in motion, SIUE has united with SIUC to provide the SIU system with a voice. Student Body President Nasir Almasri said other universities are likely to take the same approach.
