CAMPUS CONVERSATION TASK FORCE REPORT:
The Campus Conversation Task Forces have completed their work for the year and made final reports and recommendations to the Campus Advisory Group. A summary report including recommendations for implementation to begin in fall 2006, is available for review at: http://www.uni.edu/conversation/
AVIAN FLU UPDATE:
Last night, ABC aired the made-for-TV movie, "Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America." UNI has a task force planning for a potential pandemic, led by Dean Shoars. For more information about facts and myths regarding avian flu and pandemics, see http://www.pandemicflu.gov/
UNI BUDGET UPDATE:
The final budget deal put in place by the Iowa General Assembly falls well short of the $40 million budget request put forward by the Board of Regents. Although there was an increase approved for the Regents universities (the second consecutive year of an increase following five years of budget reductions), the amount approved does not go far enough to cover even mandatory cost increases at UNI and the other Regents universities. See full update at http://www.uni.edu/govrel/legisupdate.html
