ISU President Talks Enrollment Decline - KIWA
All three of the Iowa state universities are expecting fewer students this fall. During discussion of next year’s budgets for Iowa State, UNI and the University of Iowa — ISU president Wendy Wintersteen said the enrollment decline is a two-part issue. Fewer students means lower tuition revenue for each school. Iowa State University says student tuition supports seventy-percent of it’s general budget. At the University of Iowa it’s sixty-four-percent from student tuition. UNI reports that student tuition supports only forty-two-percent of the Cedar Falls school’s budget.
