(This amendment provides $5.0 million GF to support enrollment growth at JMU to begin addressing funding disparity relative to other institutions. JMU’s in-state FTE enrollment growth from 2010-20 was 23 percent or 2,992 in-state students. This is the second highest in-state FTE growth among Virginia’s public four-year universities. However, JMU receives the least amount of money from the Commonwealth per in-state student at $5,394. This is 26 percent or $1,907 less than the average Virginia public four-year university receives.)
