STATE WORK STUDY ELIMINATED: Gov. Vilsack signed the education appropriations bill reducing fiscal year 2002 state funding levels by over $3 million. Hardest hit was the $2,750,000 State Work Study program which was completely eliminated. UNI was to receive $245,000 in State Work Study for 2001-02. The impact will be felt across campus as the total number employed by work study at UNI may be reduced by as many as 230 students. Departments are encouraged to plan ahead so services provided by students may continue and are not impacted by this funding reduction.
