University of Missouri System President Elson S. Floyd wants to hear what you think about tuition and he’s coming to the UMR campus to ask.
As part of a statewide tour, Floyd will hold a public forum at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, to seek input about the concept of guaranteed tuition. The forum will be held in the Havener Center on the UMR campus. The public is invited to attend.
Floyd will discuss the concept of a guaranteed tuition rate for incoming University of Missouri undergraduate students that would not increase for four years or for the approved duration of their programs. Undergraduate students already enrolled at the university would have a guaranteed rate for four, three or two years, depending on remaining program duration.
“Let me emphasize that the university is simply examining the guaranteed tuition approach,” Floyd says, noting that no decision has been made to pursue the concept. “The purpose of my visits to Missouri communities is to discuss the pros and cons involved and listen to what you have to say. The feedback that I receive at these public forums will weigh heavily in any decisions the University ultimately makes.”
