Since closing a state university is somewhat more complicated than closing your local convenience store, I have some questions for the Governor:
What is your plan for enabling students who are eligible to graduate to do so?
What is your plan for tuition refunds for students who paid their tuition in good faith, expecting a full semester of classes?
What is your plan for continuing extant federal grants? What is your plan for paying back the unused grant funds?
What is your plan for the current semester’s indebtedness assumed by our students through student loans? Since the university is closing because of your dereliction of duty, are you going to have the state repay the student debt created during this aborted semester?
What is your plan to address the issue of failure to make satisfactory progress for our students and its effect on future student aid?
What is your plan for defending the state against the certain avalanche of lawsuits that will follow Chicago State’s closure?
What is your plan for addressing the long-term damage to the surviving state universities caused by your unconscionable action?
Since there won’t be anyone working at the university after March 1, I’m afraid there won’t be anyone to deal with these issues (and more that I’ve missed in this listing). I’m sure you and your staff will enjoy untangling the mess that you’ve created. I am also sure that in these areas you will prove yourself as unqualified as you are to be Governor.
