DKS MOINES (I IM) The president of the state board of regents said Sunday the financial needs of the regents’ institutions were handled “very fairly” by the legislature this year.
Mrs Mary I/mise Petersen of Harlan said the legislature understood tin* needs of Hie regents and said board members “can be pleased with the efforts of our legislative liaison people
Mrs Petersen said the legisla lure gave “thoughtful consideration” to the regents program and passed almost all of it.
“We came out well,” she said.
However, she expressed con cern about a legislative mandate to increase nonresident tuition at the three state-supported universities by SHK), saying Iowa could eventually “price ourselves out of the nonresident student market.”
When the legislature approved a $25 8 million appropriation for the regents, lawmakers left the budget $700.(HK) short of being funded The feeling was that the money could be made up by charging an extra SHK) to the 7 (KH) nonresident students at Iowa State university, the University of Iowa and the University of Northern Iowa.
l aced with raising the nonresident tuition or cutting back by $7(K).(HKI, the regents opted for the tuition increase al their monthly meeting in Council Bluffs last week. During the meeting, several administrators said they were concerned that if Iowa kept raising its fees for out-of-state students, the state’s universities could be without any nonresident students. In an interview, Mrs Petersen agreed “I see a great danger eventually in pricing ourselves out of the nonresident market.” she said. “The percentage of nonresident. students on our campuses has been going down.”
Mrs Petersen said part of the reason for the decrease is tuition but she added that the growth of community colleges in areas to tne east of Iowa also has been a factor She said that was especially true in western Illinois, which traditionally has sent large numbers of students to Iowa schools.
“There is no question that out-of-state students add to the campus climate.' she said “They’re a good ingredient to have Their presence improves the vitality and educational climate of a campus.”
Aside from the tuition ques
tion, however, Mrs. Petersen said she was pleased with the work of the legislature in regard to funding the regents program.
“We were treated very fairly.” she said “I think the legislature recognized the extreme pressure placed on educational institutions and on all public employers as well.”
The regents president said the board was “very greatful” for the 7.5 percent pay raise given to reegnts employes which she said will help offset. “extreme inflation pressures.”
“More broadly speaking, the legislature gave thoughtful consideration to our program and passed almost all of it,” she said “This applies not only to legislators but to leaders from the executive branch.”
