Dear IMSA Community,
It’s “Good News Friday!”
SB 2059 has passed both the House and Senate this morning! It has been sent to Governor Rauner and reports indicate that he has signaled his commitment to signing this Bill. This stop gap funding bill for Higher Education appropriates $6 million for IMSA, which will enable us to pay salaries, address our most pressing bills and cover costs going forward.
Looking Ahead: Next Week at IMSA
Please join us in celebrating the Twenty-eighth Annual IMSAloquium 2016 on Thursday, April 28, 2016! We look forward to recognizing the amazing and outstanding accomplishments of our students in the Student Inquiry and Research program–and how IMSA impacts STEM in Illinois and the world.
Happy Earth Day and Have a Great Weekend!
José M. Torres, Ph.D.
