Joint Statement from Student Leaders on the Iowa Legislature’s Decision to Cut Funding for Higher Education:
The Iowa Legislature’s decision to cut $8 million in important funding for higher education at a time when students and their families are struggling with a once-in-a-generation economic crisis is short-sighted and deeply disappointing.
The University of Iowa Undergraduate Student Government is committed to enhancing the student experience on campus. By challenging ourselves and the University we seek to ensure a student-centered environment through education and advocacy. USG's Year-End Report chronicles the accomplishments and details over the fall and spring semesters.
As the Finance Committee chair for University of Iowa Student Government, I feel a responsibility to clarify some inaccuracies in a Daily Iowan article, “UISG decrease in contingency funds limits student organization funding,” and how it described UISG’s funding process.
