Welcome to the very first Illinois Newsroom newsletter!

What can you expect from us? A round up of Illinois Newsroom features delivered straight to your inbox each month, highlights from our partner stations around the state, info on upcoming events, and lots of behind-the-scenes goodies you won't get anywhere else.

This newsletter will also be a place for questions - the ones you have for us AND the ones we have for you! We love to hear what issues you care about most, so we can bring you stories about our state that matter to you.

Oh, and we won't overwhelm your inbox either. We'll reach out just once a month. (Don't worry, you can also follow us on twitter! @ilnewsroom)

Happy Holidays from the team!

Do Campus Sexual Misconduct Policies Allow Harassment to Persist?

Rachel Ottwell and Christine Herman examine two recent cases of harassment allegations made against faculty in Illinois, and how policies at public colleges and universities can allow harassment to persist.

Is college the right path for everyone? Mary Hansen digs into efforts to show high schoolers possible career paths that don't require a four-year degree.

Lee Gaines looks into efforts to ban college applications from asking if the applicant has a criminal record, and why Illinois schools will keep asking.

When sexual assault survivors try to navigate the justice system they can experience even more trauma. So what is Illinois doing to change that? Steph Whiteside reports.
