Northeastern Illinois University faculty, staff and students have previously, and separately, appealed to your sense of duty and responsibility to all citizens of the State of Illinois and, in particular, to higher education. Copies of those appeals are attached.

Our voices joined the hundreds of thousands of citizens in the State of Illinois who have asked that you fulfill the obligations of your elected positions.

Today, Northeastern Illinois’ constituencies have joined together as one community and again ask that a fair budget be passed – one which supports education.

You must Fund our Future to ensure that every resident of our State is allowed to thrive and succeed in Illinois. This can only be achieved through affordable, accessible education.

We, the students, faculty and staff of Northeastern Illinois University, are united in this campus event to demonstrate we are one in our goal to serve, educate, and build the future of Illinois.


Faculty, Staff, Students, NEIU
