Illinois State University continues to plan and prepare for potential budget cuts in fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2017.

While the University is awaiting a fiscal 2016 appropriation from the state, university leaders will travel to Springfield to appear before the Senate appropriation hearings on April 14.

Illinois State will be the last of the nine public university systems to visit the Capitol to answer questions related to the fiscal 2017 appropriation request and discuss the current budget situation.
