Funding

  • Advocate for increases in state funding through the state’s performance funding model, workforce development opportunities, an equity adjustment and capital appropriations.
  • Maintain affordability by raising tuition and fees for in-state undergraduate students by no more than the increase in the consumer price index.
  • Improve compensation for faculty and staff.
  • Continue to increase and maintain efficiencies in the university’s procurement practices and general operations to control costs.
  • Develop a comprehensive campaign to raise private funds and increase the endowment.
  • Maintain external funding at $40 million or more annually through private support, grants and sponsored contracts.
