National press this weekend in the NYT and good early writing from one of our own

Hi all,

The crisis at Chicago State University was covered this Sunday in the New York Times, and it’s very good for all of us that press is continuing and now hitting the national media.

NEIU got into the press early on and began engaging public discourse as attention first started to focus on the revenue failures in our state. Have you read this by Tim Libretti?
