IU officials will outline proposed tuition and fee rates for the 2007-08 and 2008-09 academic years and describe how these additional revenues will be used to maintain and improve academic quality.
Also, Roger Thompson, vice provost for enrollment management, will outline new and expanded student aid programs that will help IU Bloomington students from low- and moderate-income families.
Following the hearing, trustees will convene at 1 p.m. in the same location to deliberate on the proposed tuition and fee rates and are expected to take action.
The IU administration is recommending a 5 percent increase in tuition and required fees in each of the next two years for in-state undergraduate students at all campuses. Additionally, undergraduate students in business, music, nursing and art and design programs may see new or increased program fees to defray the higher instructional costs inherent in those programs.
