Legislature shows financial support for Sul Ross

Inside the $ 7 billion merger of Sequoia Financial and Wealthstone Advisors

These totals don’t include money the university receives through philanthropy, grants, tuition, and other sources.  The university will further receive federal support both through the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act and as a federally designated Hispanic Serving Institution.    “We are committed to providing all of our students with the financial and academic support they need to earn a degree, which is even more vital in today’s competitive economy. The Legislature’s support can help us achieve that goal,” Gallego said. 

In total, the budget includes $22.5 million in general revenue funds for the Sul Ross Alpine campus; $11.2 million in general revenue funds for the Sul Ross Rio Grande College in Del Rio, Eagle Pass and Uvalde; and  $1 million in institutional enhancements for the university.  Sul Ross was initially required to submit a budget proposal that included 5% cuts from the 2020-2021 budget. But lawmakers restored that funding and also protected the university from cuts due to enrollment decreases in prior years as it works to increase enrollment across its four campuses. They also included funding for student success programs to help students excel and graduate.  

The budget also includes $110 million for need-based financial aid for students around Texas, including many who will attend Sul Ross.   “Throughout the legislative session, I was in close contact with leaders, committee chairs and budget writers. Having helped write many state budgets during my 20 years in the Legislature, I deeply appreciate their support for Sul Ross as we enroll, educate, and graduate our students and prepare them as the next generation of leaders.”

Lawmakers this session also declined to even hold hearings or consider a proposal that would have moved the university out of the Texas State University System, its home for the past century. The House passed a bill that included two projects Sul Ross State and the Texas State University System had requested prior to the legislative session starting – $35 million to renovate several fine arts facilities in Alpine, and $44 million for a building at the Rio Grande campus. Ultimately, the bill did not pass the Senate, although it could be model for future funding decisions and bills.
