  • A message from President Glassman to the EIU community regarding Eastern Illinois University's operational budget and capital construction plans:

    EIU Family,

    I am happy to share that the Illinois General Assembly has approved both an operational budget and a capital construction plan for the upcoming fiscal year beginning July 1. We anticipate the full legislative package will be signed into law by the Governor sometime this week. With that in mind—enactment of the specifics detailed below is predicated entirely on the Governor’s signature.

    First and foremost, the budget will provide operations funding for Eastern Illinois University at a level of $41,424,300 for Fiscal Year 2020. This amounts to a 5% increase over the current year. In addition to the increases for public university operations, I am also tremendously pleased to announce that the budget increases statewide funding for the MAP Grant program by $50 million and provides a $10 million increase for the AIM High program, which has helped all state universities to better compete for Illinois students.

    After decades of gradual State divestment in public higher education operations, culminating with the 2015-2017 budget impasse – this change in direction and strategy is highly welcomed. The State is choosing to invest in in its educational institutions and its residents who choose to utilize them in hopes of keeping more of Illinois’ best and brightest right here at home where they can then start their families, secure jobs, open their own businesses and contribute in countless ways to moving Illinois forward.

    The capital spending plan authorizes $148.5 million in capital construction, capital renewal and deferred maintenance spending specifically for EIU. Of that, $118.8 million is designated for our new science building. Thank you to all of those who helped make the case for our need of a new science building. Your efforts paid off!

    The specific projects included in the capital plan for EIU are as follows:

    Capital Reappropriation Projects (projects previously authorized but unfulfilled)

    • Coleman Hall & Life Sciences Building HVAC - $5.4M
    • Various deferred maintenance and capital renewal projects - $1.8M
    • ADA upgrades - $1.7M
    • Electrical upgrades - $734K
    • General HVAC & plumbing enhancements - $624K
    • Renovation & expansion of Fine Arts area - $11K

    New Capital Projects
    • New Science Building - $118.8M
    • Miscellaneous Capital Renewal & Deferred Maintenance - $19.5M

    I cannot adequately express my appreciation and gratitude to our state legislators and to Governor Pritzker for all of the long days, late nights, painful compromises and politically tough votes that were required to make all of this happen. I know it was not easy, but I am heartened by how many of you decided in the end that we here in Illinois can do big things when we work together.

    I am extremely enthusiastic about the critical steps being taken by our state leaders to reinvest in Illinois higher education, and I remain confident that EIU and its peer institutions will continue to demonstrate their profound economic and individual impacts across the state.

    Thank you all for your constant work, your fierce dedication and your passionate advocacy for this amazing university.

    With gratitude,

    David M. Glassman
    President, Eastern Illinois University
