Significant Budget Cuts at Western Illinois University; More Likely - Elliot Roberts, Chronicle Daily

Those cuts combined with declining enrollment will cause some people to lose their jobs at Western Illinois University at the Macomb and Quad Cities campuses. The cuts will take effect next fiscal year, which begins July 1, 2016. WIU administrators estimate their plan will save the school around $7.5 million. "Things are not going to be taken care of overnight, because we've had all of those reductions over the number of years", Thomas said. "But those are the kinds of things that have to be bargained before we actually really go into that but those are things that we are considering". He said a task force led by Neumann will come up with a plan to eliminate, merge, and/or restructure programs.
