Several University of Iowa administrators will address subcommittees of the Iowa Legislature this week to lobby on behalf of better opportunities for students.

UI President Sally Mason will address the education appropriations subcommittee today to outline the university’s student-focused priorities, according to a UI press release.

Mason will speak to legislators about the UI’s goals to keep tuition affordable.

On Thursday, Daniel Reed, UI vice president for Research and Economic Development, and David Hensley, interim associate vice president for Economic Development, will ask the economic development appropriations subcommittee for support of the UI’s entrepreneurship programs.

UI officials have requested $7 million in new funding for entrepreneurship initiatives, the release said.
