Students protest financial issues outside UVa BOV meeting - Derek Quizon, The (Charlottesville) Daily Progress

About 20 activists gathered outside Friday’s board of visitors meeting at the University of Virginia demanding the right to speak to board members in public session. The activists — students and recent graduates calling themselves UVa Students United — said they want the opportunity to address the board on a variety of issues, including tuition increases, pay for university employees and cuts to the AccessUVa financial aid program. “All of us had different issues that brought us here,” said Nqobile Mthethwa, a second-year student, just before the meeting. “We found we had no avenues for addressing those issues with the board.” http://www.roanoke.com/news/education/higher_education/students-protest-financial-issues-outside-uva-bov-meeting/article_bddc0ebe-9fbc-59cf-ba51-11c37123f69f.html
