SIUC chancellor outlines budget, enrollment concerns during State of the University address - Bill Lukitsch, Daily Egyptian

Interim Chancellor Brad Colwell on Wednesday morning delivered his State of the University address, naming enrollment management and disinvestment from the state as two primary concerns as the university enters the academic school year. Most public universities in Illinois are facing the twofold problem of decreased enrollment and lowered state appropriations following an unprecedented state budget impasse. And with the state budget still uncertain, the university may see more cuts in the near future, Colwell said. “We need to be prepared for the possibility that we will receive a significantly reduced level of state funding for the current year,” the top campus official said.
