President Obama's Speech last night..."And it’s time for colleges and universities to get serious about cutting their own costs – because they too have a responsibility to help solve this problem."
Keeping his perfect record intact, Chancellor Coombe will once again raise tuition at the University of Denver. Tuition will be increasing for the next academic year, the Board of Trustees decided Friday. Since taking over as Chancellor in 2005 Robert Coombe has managed to raise tuition every year he has been running the school.
Last year the tuition was "only" raised 4.9% making DU one of the more expensive schools in the country. According to the Princeton Review Tuition alone was $34,596 last year not counting room, board or books.
“There will be an increase,” said Claire Brownell, assistant to the chancellor.
Although the amount has been decided, the chancellor’s office declined to say by how much.
