Southern Illinois University has responded to student protests against racism with a plan to boost campus diversity. The university plan released Tuesday comes one day after a student-led protest on its Carbondale campus drew several hundred participants. 

SIU students, community members, and others took to the Carbondale campus Monday to protest increasing costs for higher education, social issues and more.

SIU President Randy Dunn says the school will remain viable, but may look dramatically different, if proposed cuts to higher education are enacted in Springfield.

Southern Illinois University is out with its list of potential cuts, if Gov. Bruce Rauner's proposed budget is passed - and if the budget impasse continues, it could be even worse.
