I know that when legislators are involved in the tuition setting process, that tuition hikes remain lower. Last year, I remember OUS was asking for double digit tuition hikes (about 15%). However, due to the public accountability and students ability to lobby, legislators kept tuition increases at an average of 5.5%! That accountability with elected officials saved each full-time student hundreds of dollars!!!
When OHSU went this route, it became the most expensive nursing school in the nation. What is going to prevent these same tuition hikes at our public universities and what is going to help us from seeing several of our peers priced out of a college education each and every year?
