Chancellor Fox Invites Campus Community To Tuition Town Hall Meeting

submitted by nicolle on Tuesday, October 28 at 2:26 PM

The Tuition Task Force, co-chaired by Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Jim Oblinger and Student Body President Tony Caravano, voted Monday to recommend a $300 campus initiated tuition increase for each of the next three years. The Task Force report, which includes recommendations about funding financial aid and academic excellence initiatives, will be sent to Chancellor Marye Anne Fox.

In keeping with past practice when the University has considered a campus initiated tuition increase, Chancellor Fox will hold a Tuition Town Hall Meeting on Sunday, November 2, in Nelson Hall Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. to gather input from the campus community before formulating recommendations to the NC State Board of Trustees.

Students, faculty and staff will have an opportunity to comment on the recommendations from the Tuition Task Force. Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Tom Stafford, who chairs a similar task force on student fees, will summarize the recommendations from the Student Fees Task Force.

At its November 20-21 meetings, the Board of Trustees will hear reports from both the Tuition Task Force and the Student Fees Task Force. The Board of Trustees approves student fees and campus initiated tuition increases and forwards its recommendations to the University of North Carolina Board of Governors.

Quite a bit of discussion has already been generated there. To sum up the post:

Tuiton/fees by the end of 2007/2008 will more than likely double since 2001. Thats an increase from ~1650 to ~3300 over a 6-7 year period of time.

bah, why is it on sunday.

so is that $900 total three years from now? ouch.

It appears that they think students can make up for state appropriations. As far as I know, i dont think there is anyway i can compete with the state.

I guess it's good that i am graduating, but my two brothers who go here are certainly screwed.

I imagine their minds are made up on the increase, we are the 11th best buy in education in the country and less money is coming in all the time from the General Assembly. I think the attractiveness of the campus tuition increase is that the money stays here at NC State. It does not go back to the General Assembly for them to spend on whatever schools/programs they wish.

You may want to fight the increase, but you might also want to have some really good ideas for how you would like to see your money spent. Traditionally, it goes to faculty salaries and financial aid. Certainly financial aid will be needed to help those who need it most, but what would you really like to have your money go towards? Think about the services, classes, things that you have experienced, especially since the budget cuts and ask for what you think would make NC State a better place.

I totally agree, which is why you dont see me speaking out against the tuition increase. Lets face it, 2000 a semester is cheap for a college education of the quality we get at state. I hate to act like thats a small amount of money, because i myself am on financial aid, but i mean in reality, the amount we pay for this education is beans to what other people pay for the same quality.


The real solution? Lottery and gambling.
