Task Force Proposes New University Funding Idea

Des Moines, IA

A task force proposal to change the way Iowa funds its state-run universities has been greeted with skepticism by University of Iowa supporters who believe it could cut funding by millions.

The task force appointed by the Iowa Board of Regents a year ago to explore ways to better fund higher education is ready to submit its report to the board on June 4.

One recommendation is to base 60 percent of funding on in-state enrollment. That could shift much as $60 million a year from Iowa to Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa, since both pull in more in-state students.

Iowans make up 89 percent of UNI students, 60 percent of Iowa State students and 54.5 percent at Iowa.
