NEWS

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. For more information, visit: http://www.uni.edu/govrel/022501.shtml

NCA TEAM VISIT COMPLETED: The North Central Association accreditation team conducted its evaluation visit on the UNI campus Feb. 19-21.

UNI has been accredited by the North Central Association since 1918.
