IU statement on state appropriations for fiscal years 2016, 2017 passed by Indiana General Assembly

  • May 1, 2015


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University's seven campuses received a combined increase of 2.8 percent -- or $13.4 million -- in state appropriations for fiscal year 2016 in the two-year higher education budget approved by the Indiana General Assembly late Wednesday night. IU’s total state operating appropriation for the fiscal year that begins July 1 is $485.7 million. The university was appropriated an additional $12.0 million -- or 2.5 percent -- in operating funds in fiscal 2017.

The budget increases for IU reflect strong performance across all campuses to address the goals IU and the state share in meeting crucial higher education needs in Indiana, and the university wishes to express its gratitude to the General Assembly for its support of higher education, and for Indiana University in particular.

Such support, and the confidence shown by the General Assembly in this appropriation, are invaluable to allowing IU to continue to meet its commitment to providing an affordable, world-class education that prepares students for the complex world they will enter after leaving college, and to fulfilling our mission to serve the state of Indiana.
