ISU and EIU struggle with State budget impasse - HANNAH MEISEL, Illinois Pubic Radio

Leaders of several state universities and community colleges are sounding the alarm as they begin month three of receiving no money from Illinois. State support for Illinois’ 12 public universities and its 49 community colleges is the largest part of the state government that isn’t being funded during Springfield’s budget impasse. To cut spending during the state’s partial government shutdown, Illinois State University has already implemented a hiring freeze and eliminated 76 positions, in addition to delaying noncritical construction projects. ISU President Larry Dietz says he’s not prepared to make cuts that would affect students’ academic paths, like cutting classes. http://peoriapublicradio.org/post/isu-and-eiu-struggle-state-budget-impasse#stream/0
