Southern Illinois University president seeking about $36 million in cuts due to state budget crisis - ERICA HUNZINGER & CAMILLE PHILLIPS, St. Louis Public Radio

Southern Illinois University President Randy Dunn said Wednesday that the state's ongoing budget crisis is forcing him to propose cutting at least $30 million from the Carbondale campus, $4 million from the Edwardsville campus and $2.2 million from the School of Medicine. In an online post, Dunn said his proposed cuts should be finalized no later than July 1 and take effect as soon as possible. The actions are necessary, he said, because the schools cannot "reasonably assume state money will be forthcoming anytime soon." Dunn also is seeking authorization to loan "certain unrestricted funds" from the Edwardsville campus, which he described as reserves, to the Carbondale campus.
