Decision by State Universities Retirement System (SURS) denying retired college professors' requests to purchase service credit under Illinois Pension Code was not a denial of equal protection, as no evidence to corroborate claim that they were treated differently from similarly situated individuals. SURS acted within scope of its authority and deferred to college as to appropriate percentages of professors' workload. (KNECHT, concurring; APPLETON, dissenting.)
