After 21 long months, the state of Illinois budget crisis drags on—and there’s no clear path to funding higher education in this state.
The University of Illinois is feeling the effects of the chronic uncertainty. It’s challenging to recruit elite faculty and students. It threatens crucial research grants and creates a less-than-ideal environment for students.
Defend the U of I’s future and let legislators know that another year of budget inaction and massive cuts is unsustainable.
Join fellow alumni and University leaders at the University of Illinois Day at the Capitol.
