CARBONDALE, IL –(Effingham Radio)- Campus leaders and local lawmakers in Carbondale are trying to fight a planned Southern Illinois University funding swap.
SIU trustees last week took up a plan to shift money from the school’s main campus in Carbondale to the school’s campus in Edwardsville.
The money would follow the recent shift in enrollment.
But local state Rep Terri Bryant says she fears taking money away from the Carbondale campus will only hurt the school more.
