(This amendment provides $10.0 million GF in additional funding for Radford University for operating support to further reduce tuition and fees for Virginians attending Radford University Carilion (RUC) in Roanoke to close the differential gap in tuition between the two campus sites. The 2019 General Assembly authorized Radford University to establish RUC, a partnership with Carilion Clinic to strengthen the Roanoke region as a destination for health education and research, contributing to the overall growth and economic development of Southwest Virginia. Increased investment by the Commonwealth is intended to provide additional accessibility and affordability for Virginians enrolled in high-demand, high-paying health professions programs, and increase the number of health care professionals living and working in Southwest Virginia.)
