Community leaders in the Quad Cities are worried about Western Illinois University and its future plans for the campus in Moline.

Mayor Stephanie Acri says she's learned from meetings with university leaders of their ambitious plans to raise enrollment, but she thinks those plans are focused on the main campus in Macomb.

"When I look at the strategy I see some components of some kind of feeder courses for finishing at Macomb and then some adult courses, but that's not our vision, that's not our vision for that campus."
