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. Out of this appropriation an amount estimated at $80,483 the first year and $80,483 the second year from the general fund and $36,130 the first year and $36,130 the second year from nongeneral funds are designated for the educational telecommunications project to provide graduate engineering education.  The participating institutions and centers shall jointly submit an annual report and operating plan to the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia in support of these funded activities.

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.1. Out of this appropriation $930,028 the second year from the general fund is provided to address restoration of budget cuts and in-state undergraduate enrollment growth.

2. The University of Mary Washington is authorized to utilize up to $500,000 of the amount provided in paragraph D.1. of this item in the form of student financial assistance. However, should the institution decide to use these funds as financial aid, it shall be for the fiscal year only and not a permanent transfer.

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.

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