University Of Tennessee Budget Unsustainable, DiPietro Tells Hamilton Rotary Club - Gail Perry, Chattanoogan

The University of Tennessee system now has a budget that is unsustainable, UT President Dr. Joe DiPietro told members of the Hamilton Place Rotary Club on Wednesday. He said around 2010-2011 the amount of money from families and students began to exceed the state’s contribution to an in-state college education at a state university. In the past four years increased costs in the form of tuition and fee hikes have been passed on to students and parents because state appropriations have declined. The speaker said the school was founded upon the need to provide a broad-based education to the masses. With the continuing cost increases, a college education for individuals has become more difficult, and it needs to stop, he said.
