Statement from Board of Regents Executive Director Mark Braun on FY2018 Reductions
All cuts are hard, but the Board of Regents understands the fiscal constraints the state is facing. We will work with our institutions to make reductions in ways that have as little of an effect on students as possible.
The Board maintains its support for its appropriations request for FY2019, which includes $12 million in resident undergraduate financial aid. The state of Iowa ranks last in the nation in need-based financial aid to public university students.
We will work with the Governor and General Assembly to ensure Iowa public universities receive the level of funding that is needed to provide the quality education that our students deserve.
