Speak out at Student Day at the Capitol
Calling all current U of I students!
Higher education in Illinois stands at a crossroads. Even though we’re well into fiscal year 2016, there’s still no higher education budget. University budgets and MAP grants remain unfunded. All universities are feeling the strain, and some even face an existential threat.
The University of Illinois uses state funding to help maintain its facilities, recruit preeminent professors, invest in new technologies and, most importantly, provide grants and scholarships to bright, deserving students like you. Join your fellow students from all three U of I campuses at the State Capitol on March 2, 2016, and let your lawmakers know that support for higher education—and support for our students—remains strong!
