Illini students wary of proposed online expansion

University of Illinois officials want to move forward with a "Global Campus" initiative that would expand the school's online course catalog. But students are wary, and last night--after an hour of debate--the Student Senate passed a resolution demanding more consultation, the Daily Illini reports. The Global Campus proposal would make it possible to graduate from Illinois without ever setting foot on campus. That might bring the school money, but students wonder what would it do to the prestige of their degrees.
