Documents show the former SIU system president might have hindered student recruitment efforts for the Carbondale campus by not approving a mailing list purchase.

The Southern Illinoisan reports emails show then-President Randy Dunn didn't take action during his final two months in office on spending $499,000 to buy contact information for students who've taken the SAT, ACT and other standardized tests.

Dunn resigned in July after criticism over his proposal to shift $5 million in state funding from the Carbondale campus to Edwardsville.
