A. This Item includes general and nongeneral fund appropriations to support institutional initiatives that help meet statewide goals described in the Restructured Higher Education Financial and Administrative Operations Act of 2005 (Chapters 933 and 945, 2005 Acts of Assembly).

B. The software engineering curriculum being established to insure success of recent economic development projects in Southwest Virginia, shall be considered on its merits by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia and shall not be dependent on funding by the Commonwealth.

C. As Virginia's public colleges and universities approach full funding of the base adequacy guidelines and as the General Assembly strives to fully fund the general fund share of the base adequacy guidelines, these funds are provided with the intent that, in exercising their authority to set tuition and fees, the Board of Visitors shall take into consideration the impact of escalating college costs for Virginia students and families.  In accordance with the cost-sharing goals set forth in § 4-2.01 b. of this act, the Board of Visitors is encouraged to limit increases on tuition and mandatory educational and general fees for in-state, undergraduate students to the extent possible.

D.  Out of this appropriation, $246,358 from the general fund and $138,577 from nongeneral funds the second year is designated to facilitate the technical training programs for the Northrop Grumman state backup data center.

E. Out of this appropriation, $24,578 the second year from the general fund is provided to increase the average salary of nursing faculty by 10 percent, effective November 25, 2007. This additional funding will help to attract and retain nursing faculty that are needed to address a shortage of nurses in the Commonwealth.
