University of Illinois President Robert Easter and other administrators will consider ways to help university employees make up for some of the money they will lose when state pension reforms begin June 1.

The president is expected to make recommendations to the trustees before June. Trustees said maintaining competitive compensation is important in trying to hire and keep key faculty and other employees.

The board oversees the school’s Springfield campus, as well as its flagship in Urbana and satellite campus in Chicago.
