Northern Illinois University President John G. Peters sent a video message to NIU faculty and staff Friday, February 10, regarding a recent analysis of Illinois’ public pension problem.


The prestigious Illinois Institute of Government & Public Affairs has released an insightful analysis of Illinois’ public pension problem and proposes a set of reforms for the SURS that meet the standards of the Illinois constitution and provides fiscal sustainability for the system going forward. It is built on the concept of shared responsibility among the state, its universities and employees.
