Will Eastern Illinois University trim down the number of majors it offers? David Glassman President of EIU says that may be the case, and it isn’t tied to the lack of state funding. It is tied to declining enrollment at the campus – which indirectly might be tied to concerns about state funding. The school is considering doing away with the bachelor’s in Africana studies, philosophy, adult and community education and career and technical education. A master’s in Special Education is also up for being cut. The EIU Board of Trustees will make the final decision – possibly in April.
