YSU trustee committee approves tuition hike for fall

YOUNGSTOWN

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.

After wasting all that money on Dunn now the BOT raises the tuition rates. What a bunch of BS. It's time to get rid of the whole bunch of BOT fools.

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!

"The increase would generate about $2 million for the next fiscal year."

Is that based on this year's enrollment numbers?

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.

If it wasn't for tuition increases where would $200,000 scoreboards come from?
