Chicago State University layoffs come at a cost - Jodi S. Cohen, Chicago Tribune

Chicago State University was sanctioned by the Higher Learning Commission, the agency responsible for accrediting the school. The university will remain accredited as it works to resolve the agency's concerns about financial strife. Facing an unprecedented budget crisis, Chicago State University has laid off nearly 400 employees since the beginning of the year — an astounding 40 percent of staff at a school that serves mostly minority and low-income students from the city. Chicago State spent nearly $1.6 million on severance for about 50 administrators who were provided lump-sum payments in June equal to the salaries they would have received if they had not been terminated.
