Report Shows Budget Standoff Likely Plays Roll in University Enrollment Decline in Illinois - WTAX

Small and medium-sized public universities hurt by Illinois’ historic budget standoff are enduring bigger enrollment declines than similar-sized schools in nearby states. The nonpartisan Illinois Campaign for Political Reform said in a report released this week that Chicago State University’s enrollment declined by nearly 25 percent — the largest decrease among schools with less than 10,000 students. The report compared Illinois schools with universities in Missouri, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin and Kentucky. Enrollment at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale decreased by 7.5 percent. That was the largest enrollment decrease among universities serving between 10,000 and 20,000 students in those seven states.
