Support Higher Education and the University of Illinois' Budget
As of today, the University of Illinois has an unprecedented $372 million in unpaid state invoices (only 49.6% of appropriation received). University leaders have implemented a mandatory furlough, a hiring freeze and a commission to review cutting administrative costs. However, without additional state funding, the core mission of educating the UI's 71,000+ students will be in jeopardy.
The General Assembly convened in Springfield this week. It is critical that our elected officials hear from you, their constituents, about the need to immediately address the state's cash crisis. Please click on the Take Action button below to write your legislators.
