DES MOINES — Representatives from the University of Iowa were at the State Capitol on Tuesday as part of an annual event.
More than 100 U of I students, alumni and university leaders, including university President Sally Mason, convened for Hawkeye Caucus Day.
Representatives from Iowa’s largest public university talked with legislators about programs the representatives think are important.
The undergraduate student government asked lawmakers to approve a tuition freeze. The Iowa Board of Regents has promised to freeze tuition for in-state undergraduate students.
But the freeze is contingent upon a 2.6 percent budget increase for the universities and an extra $4 million to aid the University of Northern Iowa’s budget. — AP
