Citing "disappointing results of the funding distribution study" examining funding disparities between the two SIU campuses, State Representative Katie Stuart (D-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 tells The Big Z she is calling for an unbiased study in order to reach a solution that is fair for SIUe.
