Authority: Title 23, Chapter 12.1, Code of Virginia.


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 university is authorized to continue offering its existing doctoral degree in psychology and a limited number of other doctoral programs in specialized areas with approval from the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. These doctoral programs are niche programs, consistent with the comprehensive mission of the university, and are targeted to meet critical needs in 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, $3,877,724 the first year and $3,877,724 the second year from the general fund is to support the institution's approved six year plan, consistent with the objectives of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2011.


E. Out of this appropriation, $427,000 the first year and $427,000 the second year from the general fund is provided for the growth of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing and the Doctor of Nursing Practice programs.


F. James Madison University shall reallocate the equivalent of three percent the first year and the equivalent of five percent the second year of its FY 2012 educational and general fund appropriation, to programs and strategies that serve to advance the objectives of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2011.  The amounts to be reallocated for this purpose, estimated at $2,099,336 the first year and $3,499,652 the second year, shall remain unallotted until James Madison University submits a plan for the use of the funding and receives approval from the Secretary of Education.  Specific programs and strategies for this reallocation shall be identified and progress toward achievement of these objectives shall be documented within the institution's six-year plan submission prior to the release of these funds.
