TBR tuition increases from 8.8 to 11 percent

Faculty and staff may get a 3% raise, the first raise in four years.  ETSU, Austin Peay, and Tennessee State have the lowest increase at 8.8%.  It's nice to have a raise, but I wish they could have addressed the lower-paid employees somehow.  Perhaps given a larger percentage to them and a smaller percentage to higher-paid employees.

Regents schools seek tuition hike up to 11 percent
Students at Tennessee Board of Regents schools can expect tuition increases between 8.8 percent and 11 percent this fall.

Faculty and staff at those schools, meanwhile, could be getting their first raise in four years.

The board’s finance committee met Monday to finalize proposed tuition increases for the 2011-12 school year. The increases, which will go into effect this fall, will offset another round of state budget cuts to higher education, as well as the cost of a proposed 3 percent salary increase for faculty and staff in the TBR system.
