The whole story

The Chronicle of Higher Education’s news blog had an item yesterday about the decision of our Faculty Federation to give up some of the raise that was due them next year in order to provide more aid for students. The Chronicle makes a reference to last year’s tuition increase that calls out for more context.

The fact is that RMU has the third-lowest tuition of any private university is Pennsylvania, and is the most affordable private university in Allegheny County. This year’s tuition increase of 3.95 percent is the lowest since 1997, and it will go entirely to programs and improvements that directly benefit students. The bottom line is that we endeavor to keep RMU as affordable as possible, and the actions of our faculty speak to that.
