Lack of full funding hinders future university planning - Cassie Buchman, Daily Eastern

Although Eastern received a stopgap budget in July, the university will have problems planning for the future without full funding. After going without a budget for nearly a year, Illinois lawmakers passed a stopgap budget Gov. Bruce Rauner then signed, giving Eastern a stopgap appropriation of $12.6 million rather than its anticipated appropriation of around $38 million. Eastern President David Glassman said as long as the stopgap funds continue to come in at a predictable measure, the university can operate. The problem, he said, is that there cannot be any long-term planning done without full funding, which is what the university ultimately needs.
