(This amendment would provide $10.0 million GF each year to address funding disparities due to enrollment growth for in-state students and educational program development to support student success and economic growth at James Madison University. James Madison University's in-state annualized FTE enrollment growth over the decade from 2009 to 2019 ranks second highest at 25 percent or 3,170 in-state FTE among Virginia public four-year universities. However, as of 2018-19, the University ranks fifth lowest for in-state tuition and ranks the lowest in general funds per in-state FTE among Virginia public four-year institutions at $5,294. This is approximately $1,311 less per in-state FTE than the average funding of four peer comprehensive institutions which include UMW, LU, RU, and CNU.)
