Eastern Illinois University cuts hit Academic Affairs most - JARAD JARMON, JG-TC

Eastern Illinois University’s budget is expected to have a deficit of $12 million to $14 million if no changes in university expenses are made. To make up for the deficit, a majority of the cuts have to be made to personnel, where costs make up a large majority of the operating budget. Former Faculty Senate Chairman Grant Sterling said a majority of that deficit would hit Academic Affairs, with around $10 million needing to be cut. Blair Lord said in a Faculty Senate meeting Tuesday that Academic Affairs has only reached two-thirds of its targeted budgetary cut even after the furloughs and current layoffs thus far.
