Iowa Board of Regents

Statement from Board of Regents Executive Director Mark Braun on Governor's Budget Recommendation

January 9, 2018

The Board of Regents appreciates Governor Reynolds’ support for higher education and the proposed increase to the Regents enterprise for FY19. We will continue to be good stewards of all funding, including appropriated funds. 

Any reduction is challenging, but the Board recognizes the current fiscal situation the state is facing. We will work with our institutions to make any required FY18 reductions in ways that have as little impact on students as possible. 

The Board and institutional leaders look forward to working with the Governor and General Assembly during the legislative session.  We will continue to advocate for the level of funding for our public universities that is necessary to provide a high quality education for our students.
