Is Chicago State on the verge of collapse? - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Troubles continue for Chicago State University, which this fall posted a 25% one-year enrollment decrease to just over 3,500 students — a more than 50% drop from 2010 numbers, according to Inside Higher Ed. Faculty and students question the leadership of the university’s board of trustees, which paid out more than $600,000 to oust former president Thomas Calhoun in September after just nine months in office. CSU’s financial and management troubles stem from ongoing political turmoil in the state legislature, which forced the university to operate without appropriations for months.
