3 Iowa schools to outline ideas for funding model

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The presidents of Iowa's three public universities are expected to outline their ideas for how their schools' funding might be linked to performance measures.

A performance-based funding committee created last year by the Iowa Board of Regents will meet Thursday in Urbandale.

The committee is expected to develop recommendations to change how state funding flows to the University of Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa.

Regents are expected to recommend changes in June. The Legislature and the governor would have to decide next year whether to adopt them.

For instance, funding levels might be linked to graduation and retention rates, enrollment and other metrics.

Regent Katie Mulholland says she expects the universities' plans to reflect differences in the types of students they enroll.
