It also includes a $4.2 million, or 13 percent, increase in state funds for the Duluth campus to help solve its budget problems. The campus, which has struggled with dropping enrollment, has been facing possible cutbacks because of a $9.4 million shortfall.

The budget also includes about a $2 million increase for the university’s law school, Pfutzenreuter said. The law school, too, has experienced a drop in enrollment, which reduced its share of tuition revenue. “So the institution is stepping in to give them a helping hand,” he said.

On May 9, the regents have scheduled a public forum to get feedback on the president’s budget proposal. The forum will be held at 12:30 p.m. at the McNamara Alumni Center on the Minneapolis campus.
