UNCW Budget Boost

AUGUST 10, 2005 -- Lawmakers in Raleigh Wednesday approved a budget that means a small pay increase for state employees and a big boost for UNCW.

The spending plan gives the college more than $7-million to deal with expanding enrollment. That money would go to hiring more faculty and providing services for the new students.

The fast growing nursing school would get an additional $2.5-million.
