Representative Calls for New SIU Funding Study

Citing "disappointing results of the funding distribution study" examining funding disparities between the two SIU campuses, State Representative Katie Stuart of Edwardsville is calling for a new study. 


In a statement from her office, Stuart claims the consulting firm that performed the study did not find a fair funding formula and passed the responsibility back to the SIU Board of Trustees. That study was done by a firm hired by the SIU System Board, so now Stuart says she is calling for an unbiased study in order to reach a solution that is fair for SIUE.



About a year ago, Stuart introduced legislation that would have ensured even distribution of state funding between the Edwardsville and Carbondale campuses. That legislation failed.
