For the past two fiscal years, UNI received strong state support and additional revenue from enrollment growth and tuition increases. Because of the recent natural disasters in the state and the national economic downturn, we've been asked to return $1.02 million of our fiscal 2009 state appropriation.
Budget Entries from FY 2007
In November, I promised to keep you informed about budget-related developments. To re-cap, in November, the University of Northern Iowa was required to return $1.02 million of its fiscal 2009 state appropriation. We had planned to invest those funds in information technology systems and security, library materials and building maintenance projects. Those areas didn't have to revert funds already allocated, but they did lose planned additional investments in their programs.
