MINUTES OF THE REGULAR FACULTY COUNCIL MEETING OF
March 23, 2009

III.
COMMUNICATION WITH THE PRESIDENT.

A. Comments by the President.

President Powers said he felt the funding proposals for the University currently under consideration at the Texas Legislature were shaping up in much the same pattern as he had previously reported to the Faculty Council. He expected the forthcoming budget would provide an increase on a year-to-year basis but would be reduced from “what we were projecting on our normal tuition budget cycle.” He said there were a number of issues that were still uncertain, including restrictions on future tuition increases, funding levels from general revenue, and allocations for the competitive knowledge fund. He thought more information would be available by the April Faculty Council meeting, especially with regard to tuition and general revenue.
