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.1. Out of this appropriation, $5,350,128 the first year and $5,350,128 the second year from the general fund is designated for the recently initiated Bachelor of Science academic programs in Electronics Engineering and Optical Engineering and Master of Science academic programs in Electronics Engineering, Optical Engineering, Computer Science, and Criminal Justice.

3. Out of the amounts for Educational and General Programs, $37,500 the first year and $37,500 the second year from the general fund is provided to serve in lieu of endowment income for the Eminent Scholars Program.


C.1. Out of the amounts for Educational and General Programs, a maximum of $70,000 the first year and $70,000 the second year from the general fund is designated for the Dozoretz National Institute for Minorities in Applied Sciences. No allotment of these funds shall be made until Norfolk State University has certified to the Secretary of Education that funds, in cash, are available to match all or any part of the amount herein made available from the general fund.


2. Any unexpended balances in paragraphs B.1., B.2., B.3., and C.1. in this Item at the close of business on June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2013 shall not revert to the surplus of the general fund, but shall be carried forward on the books of the State Comptroller and reappropriated in the succeeding year.


D. Out of this appropriation, $94,222 the first year and $94,222 the second year from the general fund is designated to assist the university in improving graduation and retention rates.

F. Out of this appropriation, $11,756 the first year and $11,756 the second year from the general fund is designated for the costs to lease and equip space for activities related to technology transfer, research, and graduate work.


G. 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.


H. Out of this appropriation, $987,689 the first year and $987,689 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.

J. Norfolk State 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 $585,459 the first year and $975,976 the second year, shall remain unallotted until Norfolk State 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.
