WKU President Says Students Can Expect a 5% Tuition Increase, Hopes to Avoid Higher Ed Funding Cuts

Bowling Green, Ky – WKU President Gary Ransdell recently hosted a group of state lawmakers from the Warren County region at his home. In addition to having a nice breakfast, those lawmakers got an earful from the President about the future of higher education funding in Kentucky. President Ransdell says WKU students can expect another 5% tuition increase next fall, and he says Kentucky's university leaders are banding together to present lawmakers with a proposed higher education funding model.

Dr. Ransdell spoke to Kevin Willis in the studios of WKU Public Radio.
