Chicago State University is Caught in the Budget Impasse

We’ve previously discussed various services and programs affected by the budget impasse. We’ve even touched on how the stalemate affects elementary and high school education. But what about its effect on higher education? The state’s 12 public universities have been without state funding since July, but there’s one in particular that may be hit the hardest — Chicago State University. If there’s no budget agreement by March, the school faces an uncertain future. Paris Griffin, president of Chicago State’s Student Government Association, recently led a march and rally to save the school. She talks about the drastic changes faculty and students may face in less than two months.
