Authority: Title 23, Chapter 11.1, Code ofVirginia.

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. 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.

C.1. Out of this appropriation, $962,943 each year from the general fund is designated for base operating support.

2.  Out of this appropriation, $866,958 each year from the general fund is designated to address the projected growth in transfer students and efforts to improve retention and graduation through increased advising and student engagement programs.

D.1. Out of this appropriation, $666,535 each year from the general fund is designated to achieve the goals of the six-year academic plan submitted by the Radford University in the fall 2011.  Radford University shall utilize these funds to establish accelerated degree options to include expanded distance education options.

2. Radford University shall reallocate $594,920 the first year and $793,227 $1,983,068 the second year from current educational and general program funds either to support the initiatives identified in paragraph D.1. and / or to address programs and strategies that serve to advance the objectives of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2011.

E. Out of this appropriation, $706,014 the second year from the general fund is designated to supplement the original funding allocations provided to higher education in support of the goals of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2011 and the institution's six-year plan.  The methodologies used to allocate this supplemental funding are not in lieu of finalizing and implementing a long-term approach for distributing future funding provided to higher education institutions.  It is anticipated that any future funding will approximate the percentage of funding allocated for base operating costs (30 percent), financial aid (10 percent), degree incentives (16 percent), enrollment growth (24 percent), and initiatives/research (20 percent) in the 2012 Appropriation Act.
