(CAMPUS REFORM) – Despite students across calling on the university to defund police on campus, the University of Illinois Board of Trustees (BOT) recently increased spending for campus security due to “increased criminal activities on campus.”
In August 2020, students protested in front of the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) chancellor’s home, demanding that the institution end its association with university police.
Last month, Campus Reform spoke to UIC students about crime on campus. They said that they had noticed an increase in crime and the local leadership’s policies are putting them at risk.
