Our View SIUE cuts would be hurtful - Jill Moon, The Telegraph

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner’s proposed budget cuts would drop funding to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville to a level last received in 1986. SIUE faces $19.6 million in cutbacks. That scenario would have devastating effects. In addition to health care and dental reductions, jobs and overall effectiveness will be affected. SIUE is the second largest employer in the Metro East. Unfortunately with a $19.6 million budget reduction, university officials project a loss of approximately 250 positions. More jobs could be lost through the reduction of the economic activity.
