EIU State of the University address date set - Jarad Jarman, 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, which makes up a large majority of the operating budget. A majority of that deficit would hit Academic Affairs, with around $10 million needing to be cut. Most recently, Eastern officials laid off 67 employees as a result of the elimination of 118 civil service and administrative and professional positions. There were 51 positions that were already empty. The 51 vacated positions being eliminated were once held by employees who earlier retired or resigned from the university and who were not replaced.
