DEKALB, Ill. (AP) - Northern Illinois University is beginning a yearlong review of many of its operations and programs as it deals with declines in enrollment and state revenue.

According to The Daily Chronicle in DeKalb (https://bit.ly/1BEZhGI ), Provost Lisa Freeman said Thursday in a presentation on campus that mergers, cuts and other changes are possible for many programs.

The university expects to get $93 million from the state this fiscal year. That’s less than a quarter of its $400 million budget. State spending on public universities has been declining across the country for years.

NIU has about 19,000 students. That’s a decrease of about 2.6 percent from the spring 2014 semester.
