Budget Impasse Could Shutter Only Majority Black University In Illinois - LARISA LYNCH, Final Call

As Chicago State University students return from holiday break back to their south side campus, they face an uncertain future. A budget impasse between the General Assembly and Illinois’ Republican governor, Bruce Rauner, could force the state’s only university that serves predominately Black students to either shutter its doors or cut staff and academic programming by mid-semester. That’s when CSU reserve funds will run out. The university has been operating off reserves that now have dwindled down to $9 million—enough to operate the 7,000 student body university for two more months. It costs about $5 million a month to operate the university that began in 1867 as teacher training school. http://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/National_News_2/article_102838.shtml
