To: All Undergrad Students & All Grad Students <>

Dear Students,

The Graduate Employees' Organization has authorized its strike committee
to call a strike at any time, and a strike is expected Monday, Nov. 16.
The campus expects that classes will be held as scheduled during the
strike. It appears that the GEO will establish picket lines around some
buildings with classrooms, and some instructors have indicated they may
cancel or relocate classes during a strike.

If you have questions about class access or scheduling, you should contact
the department that offers the class. Contact information for departments
is in the campus A-Z Index (

If you have questions about the impact of a strike on your academic
progress and degree completion, please raise these questions with your
college's undergraduate academic affairs office. College contact
information is also in the A-Z Index.

Students have a right to receive the education for which they are paying
and for which they have worked hard to earn the opportunity to receive at
the University of Illinois. Colleges and departments have been planning
for the possibility of a strike and will ensure that teaching and learning
continue. The university's goal is to ensure that students are treated
fairly and the objectives of their courses are fulfilled.

Our highest priority is to ensure that students' academic progress will
not be impeded.


Robert Easter
Interim Chancellor and Provost
