Illinois' Governors State cuts 22 degrees, hikes tuition 15 percent due to budget stalemate - Dawn Rhodes, Chicago Tribune

Governors State University will eliminate nearly two dozen academic programs and hike tuition by 15 percent to cope with the state's historic budget stalemate, officials said Monday. Starting this fall, 22 degree programs will be eliminated, including some within the undergraduate majors of communications, psychology, criminal justice and teacher education. Current students will be able to complete their degrees in those subjects. Governors State, located in southwest suburban University Park, enrolled about 5,600 students in 62 degree programs this past fall.
