Knorr says the school's three campuses are creating a task force to explore the issue. He says officials hope to have a proposal for approval by the trustees' board meeting in May.

The UI full Board of Trustees will vote on Monday's resolution next week.

Lawmakers approved legislation in December that addresses Illinois' $100 billion public pension shortfall.
