(DES MOINES) On April 2, Senator Amanda Ragan and other lawmakers talked with University of Iowa students about the importance of affordable, high quality public universities to Iowa.

“Last year, legislators worked together to provide enough state dollars to keep Iowa tuition increases below the national average of 7 percent for in-state undergraduate students,” said Ragan. “I want every Iowa kid who works hard to have the opportunity to go as far as they can. Those kids will be our state’s next generation of leaders.”

This year, the universities say they can freeze in-state undergraduate tuition for next year if the Legislature can provide an additional $21 million.
Graduates of Iowa’s public universities make up a significant portion of the state’s working professionals.

“It’s a great opportunity to share what the University of Iowa is doing and what we can accomplish for the state of Iowa,” said Guzman-Velez.
