Budget message from Illinois State University President Larry Dietz - Illinois State University

The Illinois General Assembly today passed legislation that will provide some much-needed funding for Illinois State University and public universities throughout the state. Under the measure, which is expected to be signed by Governor Rauner, Illinois State would receive just over $20.9 million, about 31 percent of our Fiscal Year 2015 state operating budget. The measure also provides partial funding for the Monetary Award Program. While we look forward to continued discussions to approve a comprehensive fiscal year 2016 and ultimately, a fiscal year 2017 budget, I appreciate the Legislature’s bipartisan efforts to pass a stop-gap measure for public higher education.
