Oregon universities considering tuition increases - Andrew Theen, the Oregonian

University of Oregon has proposed an increase of nearly 4.8 percent for in-state undergraduate students starting next fall, and the state's other publics are lining up for their own hikes. That's because state support for public universities is far outpaced these days by contributions from student tuition. When schools, then, need more money to pay for staff, services, scholarships or other needs, they turn to students rather than the government. "We're the lesser payer than student-tuition dollars," Ben Cannon, executive director of the state's Higher Education Coordinating Commission, said of state funding. http://www.oregonlive.com/education/index.ssf/2016/02/oregon_universities_considerin.html
