Northeastern Illinois University to cut about 180 jobs: 'the devastation increases' - Dawn Rhodes, Chicago Tribune

For nearly two years, the state budget standoff has placed Northeastern Illinois University in an ever-tightening vise as the school's administrators have worked to continue operations amid steep reductions in state funding. University officials announced Tuesday that they would eliminate about 180 full-time jobs this summer. The cuts include about 130 civil service and 50 administrative and professional employees — a quarter of the staffing in both categories. Those workers will receive layoff notices within the next six to seven weeks, interim President Richard Helldobler said. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-northeastern-illinois-university-budget-problems-20170530-story.html
