The University of Northern Colorado Board of Trustees approved the 2014-15 budget Friday, June 13, during the board's regularly scheduled meeting.
As previously discussed at the March meeting (http://www.unco.edu/news/?6447)) the budget planning process takes into account factors including affordability and price relative to UNC's peers in setting rates. Resident undergraduate tuition for 2014-15 will remain the lowest among Colorado's research universities, and the budget continues to set aside institutional discounting for scholarships and need-based aid at a rate of 25 percent of tuition, the equivalent of $24.7 million in institutional aid for students.
Tuition, fees, room and board account for 67 percent of university revenue while state funding represents 21 percent of the budget. Rates for the upcoming year:
In other board action, trustees approved:

Eleven students in the Monfort College of Business at the University of Northern Colorado recently earned Ethical Leadership Certification from the NASBA Center for the Public Trust.
Garett Lieber, Megan Loberg, Eric Roat, Kelley Robinson, Clay Reierson, Scott Schmaltz, Allison Snatchko, Patrick Sullivan, Jenna Vandenbark, Erika Wesselink, and Haley Zink were among the first college students in the nation to complete the program, introduced in January by the CPT, an arm of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy.
The CPT launched the program, available to colleges and universities nationwide, as an innovative supplement to instruction on business ethics.
Nine of the UNC students began the process of gaining the certificate during the spring semester in Professor Sharon Clinebell's Leadership in Organization's class and two pursued the certification independently through UNC's student chapter of the Center for the Public Trust.
In the future, other MCB classes, such as Business Ethics, will incorporate the ethics certification, and non-business majors will be able work toward the certification through UNC's chapter of the CPT.
Clinebell said that the ethics certification is part of the college's ongoing commitment to business ethics, which also includes involvement in the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Consortium, composed of eight universities in a four-state region.
"We're dedicated to providing students learning opportunities in business ethics through programs such as the ethics certificate, by bringing in guest speakers and developing ethics-related resources, which is made possible by being part of the Daniels Fund Initiative," Clinebell said. "We feel that students who earn the Certificate for Ethical Leadership from the NASBA Center for the Public Trust will add to their marketability when they graduate. The program increased their knowledge and provided them with practical guidance on being an ethical leader."
