Iowa Board of Regents

Statement from Board of Regents President Bruce Rastetter on Governor's Budget Recommendation

January 10, 2017

The Board of Regents appreciates Governor Branstad’s and Lieutenant Governor Reynolds’ continued support for higher education.

They have been very supportive of our two-year funding model that the Board passed in the fall. This new approach provides for more predictability, transparency and long-term planning for students and their families.

We understand the revenue constraints the state is facing for the current fiscal year. We will work with our institutions to make the required reductions in a way that has the least effect on students.

We will work with the Governor and General Assembly in the upcoming legislative session to ensure Iowa public universities receive the level of funding that is needed to provide the quality education that our students deserve.
