Four more University of Illinois trustees have offered to resign. Dr. Kenneth Schmidt, David Dorris and Devon Bruce, along with Robert Vickrey all say they would like to continue serving. But Governor Pat Quinn called for all trustees to step down to help the university heal from the scandal involving the admission of students based on clout rather than qualifications.

Governor Quinn has already accepted the resignations of two other trustees - including the board's former chairman.
