U of I Student Day at the Capitol

After 19 long months, the state of Illinois budget crisis drags on—and there’s no clear path to funding higher education in this state.

Soon you may see program cuts, threats to research grants, fewer top-flight professors and a less-than-ideal learning environment.

You deserve better.

Join fellow student leaders and classmates at the annual University of Illinois Student Day at the Capitol.

Let Illinois legislators know that their failure to act harms your education and the state’s health.
