UPDATE: A meeting to discuss possibly placing Southern Illinois University's President on administrative leave has been called off.  

The three officers on the university's board of trustees planned a meeting today about the school president, Randy Dunn.  The decision to meet was based on the heels of a dispute over a failed move to shift about 5 million dollars in state funding from S.I.U. Carbondale campus to the S.I.U.  Edwardsville location instead.


The Southern Illinois System (S.I.U.) is talking about removing their president because of the ongoing dispute over attendance and funding. 

Our news partners at the Pantagraph reports a board meeting tomorrow could lead to the removal of President Randy Dunn.  He's been at the center of controversial e-mails he sent over dropping attendance at the Carbondale campus.  Mirrored by more students choosing S.I.U Edwardsville.  

The Pantagraph further reports S.I.U. Carbondale gets 60 percent of state funding versus Edwardsville who only receives 40 percent. 

The S.I.U. system board meets at 1:30 P.M. tomorrow Carbondale.
