The Tennessee Board of Regents today approved a recommendation to increase tuition and fees at its institutions this year. Because of an unexpected decline in state revenue collections, the outcomes-based funding formula used to allocate state appropriations was not fully funded this year. As a result, fee increase recommendations were higher than planned.
The Tennessee Board of Regents Committee on Finance and Business Operations today recommended an increase in tuition and fees at all but one of its institutions this year.
Committee meetings will begin at 1 p.m. CDT June 19 in the Performing Arts Center in the Cox Theater. Committees will meet in this order: Committee on Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology; Business, Community and Public Affairs; Personnel and Compensation; Academic Policies and Programs and Student Life; and Finance and Business Operations.
TBR Chancellor John Morgan was among more than 200 college and university leaders from 33 states — including nearly two dozen postsecondary systems with a combined enrollment of more than three million students — today announced the launch of a new coalition that will serve as a vehicle for mobilizing higher ed leaders supporting Common Core State Standards.
