Please Sign the Petition to Save Illinois' Public Universities
To any of our readers outside the university who reside in Illinois. Please take a moment to sign the petition to save public education in Illinois. The petition is available here: https://www.change.org/p/illinois-state-house-illinois-state-senate-bruce-rauner-protect-higher-education-in-illinois. Also, please share the petition with your friends on facebook or other social media sites. Several state universities are facing the very real prospect of an impending shutdown if the posturing and preening Illinois politicians--who will be paid whether the state has a budget or not--continue to hold hundreds of thousands of students, state and university employees hostage. Since there has been little or no press coverage of the damage being done to the Illinois public higher education system, it is imperative that we make our voices heard.
