Study being sought for SIU split

With a recent decision by the SIU Board of Trustees to block additional funding for the Edwardsville campus, State Representative Katie Stuart of Edwardsville is calling on the Illinois State Board of Higher Education to conduct an independent study into the funding split. Southern Illinois University trustees recently voted down a request from SIUE Chancellor Randall Pembrook to shift more funding away from Carbondale and toward the Edwardsville campus. Stuart says the petition drive is a step toward getting more information on the big picture.


In addition, Stuart is backing measures calling for the split of the two schools into two separate entities with two separate boards of trustees, and an equal 50/50 split in state funding.
