BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Teleconference locations have been announced at all Indiana University campuses for the April 5 Indiana University Board of Trustees open forum to hear student and public comment on proposed tuition and mandatory fee increases for some IU students for the 2006-07 academic year.
The forum will begin at 3 p.m. in the Dogwood Room of the Indiana Memorial Union on the Bloomington Campus. Questions and comments for the board can be submitted by e-mail before and after -- but not during -- the hearing.
The hearing also will be broadcast to teleconference sites at IUPUI and all regional campuses, and it will be made available live on the Internet at http://broadcast.iu.edu.

The forum will focus on recommended tuition and fees for non-resident undergraduate students, and resident and non-resident graduate and professional students on all campuses. The board is scheduled to act on the recommendations during its business meeting Friday (April 7) at IU Southeast.
Tuition and fees for resident (Hoosier) undergraduate students were approved by the board last May as part of a two-year package. The combined tuition and fee rate for these students will increase by 4.9 percent for the 2006-07 year.
