President David Glassman sent out an email telling the campus that the number of layoffs to civil service employees is now determined at 177 instead of the estimated 198.

Glassman said it is still their greatest hope that lawmakers in Springfield will enact a higher education appropriation and give funding to Eastern so many or all of the layoffs can be avoided.

“If the appropriation and funds are delayed longer, we will do everything possible to recall our civil service colleagues as soon as funds begin to be received,” Glassman said.
