Are you interested in knowing where tuition and fees go to? What state and donor dollars do on campus? Join the Association of Civil Service Employees, the Faculty Association, Graduate Assistants United, and the Non-Tenure Track Faculty Association on Friday July 1st — the first day of SIUC’s fiscal year — for a campus tour entitled “The Show Me The Money SIUC Campus Tour.”
We will gather at the North entrance of Morris Library (in front of the fountain) at 12 pm, and proceed to other key locations including Faner Hall, Woody Hall, Anthony Hall, and McAndrews Stadium. At each stop, we’ll have a brief presentation/discussion about what each place reveals about SIUC’s fiscal priorities and what we see as a consistent de-prioritizing of quality education. We anticipate that the entire tour will take approximately 45 minutes. To introduce a playful element to this action, we’re encouraging people to dress as tourists, so please wear your bermuda hats and tropical shirts (and bring your camera along, too!). We’ll also be circulating our own satirical version of a campus map.
