More Cuts Coming To Illinois Universities

(Springfield, IL) — Illinois’ slow-motion budget crisis is being felt, once again, on campus. Eastern Illinois University is the latest, and perhaps, biggest victim. The school says it will send 200 pink slips to workers no later than next week. The U of I is also preparing for cuts, as officials there are looking for a seven-percent cut to academic programs. Illinois was supposed to have a state budget last July.
