EMPLOYEE RESOURCES

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE-IMPORTANT BUDGET NEWS: UNI, along with other Regent universities, would be required to cut just over a million dollars from the current fiscal year budget under a deappropriation bill being pushed by Republican legislative leaders. If passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor, the deappropriation bill would cut the fiscal year 2001 general operating budgets by $1.05 million at UNI. The proposal has very serious implications, particularly since the cuts would come near the end of the fiscal and academic year when state appropriations have already been committed for programs and salaries.

NEW UNI NAMEPLATE DESIGN: In conjunction with its 125th anniversary, the University of Northern Iowa is unveiling a new nameplate. The nameplate is the universityıs primary graphic identity element, and will serve as the visual cornerstone of the integrated marketing effort.

To view the different versions of the new nameplate and for more information, visit: http://www.uni.edu/pubrel/nameplate.shtml
