After a decade of marked leadership, Daniel to leave CSU
by Wendell Hutson
Since 1998 Elnora D. Daniel has been president of Chicago State University. But Wednesday, Daniel announced that she will retire following a one-year sabbatical which begins June 30.
“CSU in 2008 stands prepared to compete and define the nature and quality of urban education on the national landscape within, yet well beyond, the South Side, city of Chicago and the State of Illinois,” said Daniel. Most recently CSU had three consecutive years of balanced budgets under her leadership following four previous years of deficits.
Additionally, the university increased federal funding from $17 million in 1998 to $23 million in 2001 and secured funds for five new buildings. The new buildings include a $35 million library; a $32 million 7,000-seat convention center; a new $5 million conference center; a $5 million child care center; and a $5 million financial outreach center.

Being able to turn a budget around in of itself is a great accomplishment. Good for her and the school!
