YSU trustee committee approves tuition hike for fall


Youngstown State University trustees’ finance and facilities committee approved a 2.38 percent, or $7.83 per credit hour, tuition increase for resident undergraduates beginning this fall. A 3 percent increase, or $13.19 per credit hour, was approved for graduate students. The increase would generate about $2 million for the next fiscal year.

The news coming out of YSU from this utterly dysfunctional BOT just keeps going from bad to worse. They spend over hundred grand to find a new Prez; choose a nomadic scoundrel who consumed hundreds of thousands of public dollars in his few months of disservice here; and, then, instead of firing this administrative parasite for cause, they reward him with another hundred+grand on the public payroll along with perks until mid-August. Then they announce their intent to squander another 100 grand to find a new Prez using the same vastly overpriced headhunter outfit. And now they announce their intent to squeeze $2 million more out of hard-pressed students. Here's a better idea BOT: don't give another dime to damn Dunn or the headhunters who brought him here; demand at least a 20% across-the-board cut for all those overpaid YSU administrators; and then resign en masse. And here's an idea for the exploited students (and faculty) to consider: Strike!

Oh c'mon Attis. What's another $250 hike when students already pay upward of $4k plus per semester just for tuition and fees? They just add it onto their student loans. Small potatoes in the grand scheme of things. After all, the BOT needs the money to find another president and pay the one who is studying for his new gig. The students should feel honored to pay for such largesse. (Not).

Can anyone tell us just how many administrative positions there are now compared to a few years ago? I once heard that there are 150 now VS just 75 a few years back.At any rate,this seems like a good place to begin pruning.
