Stukel bemoans funding hardships


One thing that has not changed since Stukel took office is the divisive debate over the Urbana-Champaign campus' athletic mascot, Chief Illiniwek. Stukel hasn't taken a public position on whether the portrayal of the Chief should remain part of campus life or be retired, leaving it to the Board of Trustees to decide, and he won't now.

"There would be no positive outcome or good reason for me to jump into that issue as I leave the presidency," he said. "I think it's a tough enough issue."

Blog editors note: University of Illinois does not have a mascot. Chief Illiniwek is the official symbol of the University of Illinois.
