Inside Higher Ed reports that the leaders of Northeastern Illinois University are doing all they can to keep the institution viable. Why?

State funding for higher education has been severely curtailed in Illinois as the state has gone nearly two years without a budget. Officials warned additional furloughs will be necessary if more state funding is not made available. The university’s interim president, Richard J. Helldobler, issued a statement Wednesday describing the university as being in a state of emergency and worrying its accreditation could be affected.

Sad.
