Legislative Request

The legislative session is set to start on January 14, 2019.  The state appropriation process will begin shortly thereafter to appropriate funds for the budget year beginning on July 1, 2019.  State appropriations are a critical part of UNI’s success supporting such things as quality faculty members, educational excellence, economic development activities and a host of other areas that the State of Iowa expects from UNI.  Adequate state support is also the fundamental component in ensuring tuition rates remain stable and predictable for UNI students and their families.
