Portland State University eyes 9 percent tuition hike, $9 million in cuts - Andrew Theen, the Oregonian

Portland State University trustees will consider raising tuition by nearly 9 percent this fall for in-state undergraduate students, a preview of a painful year that probably will include significant staff cuts at the downtown campus. Administrators outlined the economic realities Wednesday during a finance committee meeting. They said they needed $11 million in new tuition revenue to help plug a projected $20 million budget shortfall, and would find the remaining $9 million through cuts from yet-to-be-determined sources. Some university staffers said the administration will look at "targeted personnel reductions" to make the budget a reality.
