Proposed cuts to SIU University Press make closure ‘a very valid fear,’ director says - MARNIE LEONARD, Daily Egyptian

The University Press is now at risk of losing all of its state funding. It is one of 15 centers or initiatives SIU’s non-instructional prioritization committee, which was appointed by interim Chancellor Brad Colwell, suggested could become self-supporting with the goal of eliminating state funding by 2022. This is expected to save the university $5.5 million over the course of five years. The Daily Egyptian is publishing a series of stories to examine the effect those proposed cuts would have on the university community. This is the ninth in the series.
