Students are invited to a public forum on Jan. 17 to learn more about and offer feedback on tuition for the next academic year.
The Associated Students of the University of Oregon and the university’s Tuition and Fee Advisory Board will hold the forum from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Erb Memorial Union ballroom.
The public event allows students to learn more about the tuition-setting process and where their tuition dollars are allocated. Students who are planning to attend are asked to register prior to the meeting to ensure enough food is on hand for those attending.
The advisory board, which is comprised of students, staff and faculty members, is the university’s official tuition and fee advisory group. It advises on all matters that pertain to the cost of attendance at the university, including undergraduate and graduate tuition, mandatory and nonmandatory fees, and the structure of tuition. It is charged by the university president with reviewing tuition and fee proposals each year.
The board will submit its recommendations to the interim president in February. The interim president will solicit comments from the campus community and consider all feedback before making recommendations to the University of Oregon Board of Trustees, which is expected to set tuition for the 2023-24 school year during its March meeting.
The board met four times during fall term. The full materials from each meeting are available on the UO's tuition-setting website. The advisory board’s full schedule can be found on the same site.
