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. Out of this appropriation, $1,618 from nongeneral funds in the first year can be utilized to reimburse the endowment account supporting the former Eminent Scholars Program.

D. The institution may adjust any of the amounts embedded in language under this item not to exceed the percentage reduction received.

E. In addition to the amounts provided in this item, and authorized pursuant to Item 467, P.7., the institution may reallocate from educational and general program funds in the second year to provide an additional 2.50 percent average faculty salary increase for teaching and research faculty. The institution may provide these increases consistent with its faculty pay plan.
