Higher ed task force makes recommendations

By Office of State Relations

A  task force appointed by the governor has recommended that the state’s four-year colleges and universities be allowed to raise tuition  to cover costs  if necessary to produce more college graduates to meet demand.  The task force also recommended creating a scholarship fund with a $1 billion fund-raising goal in the next decade to support low- and middle-income students.
