The Revenue Fund is a financing program for colleges and universities to build dormitories, parking facilities, wellness centers, and other revenue generating facilities on campus that do not serve an academic purpose. This session will discuss the history and details of the program, and what students should consider before using the Revenue Fund to build new facilities on campus.

  • IntroductionM: Thanks for joining us today. We are going to be talking through the revenue fund. This topic is pretty technical, so please ask questions. If you have specific questions related to various projects, it would be the best to contact Sarah following the presentation. S: Let’s get started.
  • M: Most of you know, I still have a flip phone. It can make and receive phone calls, send texts, tell time, and that’s about it. (Feel free to insert some jokes here…)
  • S: While Matt’s phone works, think how much better his life would be if he had a shiny fancy Iphone. Just look how happy Justin Klander is with his Iphone. So let’s talk about the pros and cons of M getting an Iphone. S: As a student, Matt is always on the go. Think how great it would be if he could check his email on the go? M: Well, I do have a laptop, so checking emails isn’t too much of a problem. This phone is a lot more affordable for me than an Iphone would be. S: But, think about all the cool things you are missing out on. Angry Birds, Instagram, Snapchat…M: Well, my phone has a camera, I think. S: Sure, but look how cool Justin looks with his iphone. Don’t you want to be cool? M: Good point. While my current phone works well, it might be nice to be as cool as Justin. Ask the audience to raise their hands- who thinks I should get a the iphone? Who thinks I should keep the flip phone? Ok, thanks for your input. I will have to think more about this, weighs the pros and cons, and ask some good question of the cell phone company. S: Alright, let’s get to the Revenue Fund…connecting the metaphor w. rev fun
  • M: Here are the topics we will run through during the rest of this workshop. We have a lot to cover, but we will try to answer as many questions as possible.
  • M: Here are the various types of funding resources used to pay for construction and renovations at our colleges.
  • S: explain the differences of the bonds
  •  M:Which kind of project is this? To pay for a new classroom you would use this type of bond…General obligationTo fix a leaky roof, you would use this type of bondHEAPRTo build a fitness center on campus, you would use this type of bondRevenue fundTo make changes to building to ensure its ADA compliant, you would use this type of bond…HEAPRTo build a library, you would use this type of bond…General obligationTo build a parking lot, you would use this type of bondRevenue fund
  • S; Capacity vs. authority here
  • M: MSCSA lobbied to get into the fund intitally because prior to this, campuses were having a difficult time funding parket projects and improvements.
  • S
  • M: before campuses can move forward on selling revenue fund bonds, they have to go through a specific process, beginning w/ what is outlined here.
  • S; explaining this…Pro Forma Instructions for Parking Programs or ProjectsPlease detail how the parking program is funded. (i.e. a daily rate charge, permit/contract parking or by academic credits)Be sure to include an inflation factor when calculating future expenses (Minnesota Management and Budget recommends 3%). Show scheduled or projected fee increases.Indicate what year the new project will be completed and functioning.The Fund Assessment is charged annually for the prior fiscal year. It is comprised of a program fee:$20K for Residence Halls$10K for Student Union/Centers$ 5K for all other programsIn addition to the program fee, a charge of .25% of the par amount of Revenue Fund bonds is included.It is not uncommon to defer contributions to the R&R fund or deferred maintenance on a new project. Contributions should start to appear in the 3rd year of the pro forma.
  • M: here are some projects that have been created through the rev fund since 2008, ask if there are any students from these campuses that know a little more about the projectsNOTE: let’s run through these projects as quickly as possible to spend more time on student invovlement

  • S: because this is entirely funded w/ your money as students, you need to sure that students support this project
  • M: we are part of the revenue fund advisory committee that meets to share best practices, system wide, meeting coming on 9/20, we want to serve as a resource to you for this process
  • S: prior to rev fund, student spaces have existed on campus,
