Q&A on Regents' Proposal for Performance Based Funding

The Board of Regents has proposed major revisions to the funding formula for the state's universities. The proposal would tie state funding to in-state students and to the universities' performance on particular measures. As currently designed, it would also result in a significant net increase in state funding to UNI. Joe Gorton, United Faculty president; Tim Kidd, Faculty Senate chair; and Scott Peter, Chair of the Faculty. will make brief presentations explaining the proposal, followed by questions and discussion. This event is open to all faculty, staff and students.
