Capitolizing: UH Makes Its Case in Austin

(Patrick) #1

There is a lot at stake for Texas’ third-largest university, which enrolls more than 47,000 students. What happens during the 86th Legislative Session currenly underway in Austin will largely determine UH’s budget through August 2021 and shape the future of several of UH’s strategic priorities.

UH’s 2019 legislative agenda includes asking the Legislature to: stabilize base formula funding at 2011 levels, restore more than $20 million in non-formula support lost in the 2018-19 biennium, invest more in financial aid (TEXAS grants) and provide $20 million in support for the UH College of Medicine.

I wonder when the actual approval vote from the chamber is scheduled.
