All Things Peoria - Wednesday, July 6, 2022

In today's episode, you'll hear how higher education in the Peoria area and across the state is getting a revamp. A new state law will require public universities and community colleges to develop and implement equity plans. More on what that entails, plus a financial boost to offset living expenses from the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services could increase the amount of foster families in the Peoria area. And with heated topics like abortion driving much of the conversation around politics lately, WCBU's Jordan Mead sits down with Democratic State Senator Dave Koehler to discuss what he foresees this election season.

Jody Holtz is WCBU's assistant development director, assistant program director, host of WCBU's newsmagazine All Things Peoria and producer of WCBU’s arts and culture podcast Out and About.
