Budget

The University has two separate budgets. Operating budget is planned for system-wide functions and includes all five campuses, while the capital budget includes all building construction and infrastructure work. Each year the school submits two separate budget requests to the state Legislature. Over the past decade, state support to the University has dwindled, and yearly appropriations for the operating budget are back to late 1990s levels. This resulted in numerous cuts and 3 major tuition increases.
