SIU's Dunn: Rauner's FY 2017 budget proposal will lead to 'wholesale ending of programs' - SARAH HALASZ GRAHAM, THE SOUTHERN

The Southern Illinois University system will take a $40 million cut next year if Gov. Bruce Rauner’s fiscal year 2017 budget proposal is enacted — a fact that SIU President Randy Dunn said could lead to a “wholesale ending of programs” at the university’s three campuses. SIU budget leaders met in Edwardsville Monday afternoon to chart a course forward. Dunn said details of any proposed budget cuts will be made available over the coming weeks and months. “I think it’s fair to say you’re going to see chunks of our operations, particularly those providing community development and regional support, start to disappear if this budget proposal isn’t moderated,” Dunn said.
