LEGISLATIVE UPDATE:

The Board of Regents, State of Iowa, and the three state universities face major challenges regarding budget appropriations. The Regents requested $40 million and it is likely that they will only receive $22 million. This underfunding will limit UNI resources and force the Regents to consider a three percent supplemental tuition increase for Spring 2006. For more information visit http://www.uni.edu/govrel/legisupdate.html.

 

COMPUTER ROOM POWER OUTAGES:

The ITS computer room in CBB 19 will undergo two separate power outages.

SUMMER STUDENT EMPLOYMENT:

Departments hiring students for the summer should submit all student-hire paperwork, including approval forms, to Student Employment as early as possible. This will facilitate the creation of student timecards and timely processing for payroll. If paperwork for summer employees has already been submitted, additional paperwork is not required. Questions should be directed to Student Employment at 3-6394.

 

CHARGE UP TO RECYCLE:

Facilities Services' newest recycling effort will help keep the hazardous-waste bill down. Drop off rechargeable, non-alkaline batteries at Campus Supply or the Electrical Shop.
