The following message was sent by President David Glassman to all EIU students, faculty and staff on Monday, Oct. 12:
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,
Spring registration begins today and all should know that the spring semester will begin as scheduled. There is no doubt we will be able to complete the entire semester as usual.
As you are aware, we are awaiting the completion of a state budget in order to receive our state appropriations for the current academic year. The state and the university have been through this type of crisis in years past and the legislature has always come through with appropriations for the university. We fully expect that our funding will come through this year and we are making contingency arrangements to operate the university until those funds are received.
President, Eastern Illinois University
