STATE BUDGET UPDATE -- REGENT UNIVERSITIES CUT: On Friday, Oct. 10, Gov. Vilsack announced an $82.7 million mid-year budget cut for the current fiscal year. That translates to an approximate $2 million cut in state appropriations for UNI's operating budget. This cut is the result of updated projections from the state Revenue Estimating Conference. Up to this point, we were assured there was no reason to expect a mid-year budget recision. It's too early to make any decisions about how we will be able to respond.

DISPLAY: Rod Library is celebrating the recently promoted/tenured UNI faculty with a display featuring some of their photos and/or publications.
