Illinois budget crisis leading to ‘brain drain’ - Jeff Burnett, the Journal

“I don’t think any of the universities can survive at the level we need them to operate without adequate state funding,” former Illinois Gov.

Other universities, like Western Illinois University and Chicago State University, have made major cut backs. “Even if you got a budget tomorrow really serious damage has already been done,” said Gov. Edgar.
