Task force working on enrollment solutions

A faculty task force is continuing its work on recommendations for handling Iowa State's enrollment growth issues. In his charge to the group, President Steven Leath asked for ideas and initiatives, ranging from differential tuition or admissions, to a stronger emphasis on out-of-state student recruitment.

Jonathan Sturm, Faculty Senate president-elect and task force chair, said the group still is collecting and discussing feedback gathered from faculty and staff. He said a final set of recommendations should be complete and ready for submission to the president by June.

"The [task force] has debated vigorously the possible courses of action you have proposed and have added as food for thought some others as well," Sturm said in a recent update sent to Leath.
