Eastern's year of woes top local story of 2016 - JG-TC STAFF

The struggles of Eastern Illinois University have been chosen as the JG-TC's No. 1 story in the Coles County area for 2016. In February, as Illinois moved into its eighth month without a budget, Eastern announced plans for an estimated 200 layoffs of non-instructional employees -- as well as furloughing all administrative and professional staff additionally in March to make it through the spring semester. The layoffs, along with cash flow reserves and budget cuts and freezes, were enacted to push Eastern through the semester.
