DEPARTMENTAL NAME CHANGES WITHIN UNIVERSITY ADVANCEMENT
Effective Jan. 1, 2013, Eastern’s Office of Philanthropy will be renamed the Office of University Development. In addition, University Marketing and Communications is now known as Communications, Marketing and Brand Strategies.

We believe these new titles better clarify our roles on the EIU campus. If there are any questions, please contact my office at 217-581-5983.

ROOM AND BOARD RATES SET FOR 2013-2014 SCHOOL YEAR
Eastern’s Board of Trustees on Friday approved room and board rates for students living in EIU housing during the 2013-2014 school year.

Students living in EIU’s residence halls and Greek Court will see increases of $81 to $92 per semester (a 2 percent increase), depending on the chosen meal plan. Students living in one of the 148 units at University Apartments (designed primarily to meet the needs of student families and single graduate students) will see increases of between $13 and $15 per month, with rent ranging from $448 to $503, depending on the type of apartment being rented (one-bedroom, efficiency or super efficiency).

Dan Nadler, vice president for student affairs, said he was pleased that Eastern was able to offer the lowest percentage increase in EIU housing rates in more than 35 years.

“We take a careful look at our needs, including fixed costs such as utilities, employee wages and food costs,” he said. “We also consider the best ways with which to maximize our resources. We try everything we can to economize while continuing to provide the best service possible to our students.”
