NIU President John G. Peters emailed this message to the campus Wednesday, Feb. 29.


As part of our ongoing efforts to provide you with timely information regarding proposed changes to our pension plans, the university will host a town hall-style meeting at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, in the Carl Sandburg Auditorium of the Holmes Student Center.

At that meeting, Steve Cunningham, Vice President for Administration and Human Resources, and I will present an overview of the current situation including a brief history, implications for SURS and proposed legislation.

We will also discuss insights presented in the recent University of Illinois Institute of Government and Public Affairs report on this topic, and will include a question-and-answer session. Specific questions may be emailed in advance to [email protected].

The entire program is expected to last approximately 90 minutes.

For those unable to attend the event, NIU Media Services will live-stream the event at NIU Today. That stream will be archived on the State Pension & Budget Update website and available for viewing at your convenience.
