More than 100 WIU professors’ jobs on the line because of state budget crisis - Elizabeth Wadas, WQAD

Illinois is starting its third straight year without a state budget, which could mean 118 professors at Western Illinois University could be out of a job. "We've entered a newer and deeper period of economic and fiscal uncertainty," says the WIU chapter president of the University Professionals Union William Thompson. Now the uncertain ones are the 118 faculty members at WIU who don't know if they'll have a job next school year. Non-tenured professors were supposed to be told June 1, 2017 if the University would renew teacher contracts. Instead, the administration sent a letter to all 118 in Macomb and the Quad Cities saying their employment status would be delayed until further notice.
