University leaders say stopgap budget only a step - DAN PETRELLA, Herald and Review

Despite the infusion of cash, the SIU Carbondale campus has announced nearly $21 million in permanent budget cuts, including laying off some employees and leaving more than 150 positions unfilled, Chancellor Brad Colwell said. Speaking after the meeting, Dunn said the university system has decided to apply all the state money it has received thus far to expenses from the 2015-16 school year. Eastern Illinois University will have to continue to remain sparing with expenditures into the fall semester, but a need for further layoffs is unlikely in the near future with the assistance of recent state funding. EIU President David Glassman said because of the latest state appropriation geared toward assisting higher education, he does not anticipate additional "major cuts in EIU's personnel."
