Champaign-Urbana Media Descend on CIC

Jun 14, 2010

Barbara McFadden Allen, director of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, appeared on WCIA's 10 p.m. newscast on Friday, June 11, and was prominently featured in the Saturday, June 11 editions of The News-Gazette.

Both media outlets are located in Champaign, where the CIC is headquartered.

Allen spoke about the significance of academics to the Big Ten universities. "Other presidents talk about it, but the Big Ten presidents have an enduring commitment to it," she told The News-Gazette.

WCIA, the CBS News affiliate in Champaign, similarly interviewed Allen about the significance of the academic collaborations among the Big Ten universities. The clip is not available online.
