Budget issues have become a constant topic of interest across the University of Iowa community. With that in mind, UI officials have created a web site to provide faculty, staff, and students with updates about ongoing budget deliberations and announcements, and to solicit ideas for trimming expenses as the University works to reduce costs during uncertain economic times.

“The University has to engage its members as UI administrators consider how to manage what inevitably will be lower state appropriations,” says Doug True, senior vice president and University treasurer. “President [Sally] Mason, Provost [Wallace] Loh, the vice presidents, and the deans are working through a process that will involve UI constituency organizations—faculty, staff, students, elected leaders—to consider the best ways to proceed.”
