The incoming president of the University of Iowa says he won’t whine about the university’s budget situation, and he says that’ll be something that he want’s to maintain through his administration. After two years of cuts, the Governor is recommending that the Regents universities in Ames, Cedar Falls and Iowa City get the same level of state money they did last year, plus money to provide some salary increases. Soon-to-be U-of-I president Dr. David Skorton says it’s too early to say whether that means tuition won’t go up as dramatically as it has in the past few years. He says he’s concerned about the rate of the tuition increase and shared that with the Regents during his interviews. He says he hopes the stable support of the universities will return as the state’s budget stabilizes. Tuition at the state universities has gone up 50 percent in the past three years. Skorton made his comments this weekend on Iowa Public Television.
