The Board of Regents has approved UNI's budget reduction action plan

Thursday, October 29, 2009

The conversation at today's Board of Regents, State of Iowa meeting regarding UNI's action plan to address the 10-percent budget reduction has concluded.

The Board of Regents has approved the action plan I outlined in my message earlier today.

A motion to recommend a $100 spring semester surcharge was approved by the Board of Regents and will be voted on at the December board meeting.

Today marks a new reality for UNI. While difficult decisions have been made, our priorities and our purpose cannot and will not change.  In the coming days, UNI's vice presidents will share more information with you on how these actions impact your specific areas. There are many details yet to be determined and we will communicate updates on our progress as available.
