University of Wisconsin System regents are signing off on millions of dollars of tuition increases for out-of-state and graduate students at UW-Madison over the next two academic years.
The plan calls for raising non-resident undergraduate tuition $810 and $828 to generate about $16 million in additional revenue.
The regents approved the increases unanimously without any discussion at a meeting Friday on the UW-La Crosse campus.
Yesterday, Governor-elect and current Regent Tony Evers briefly addressed the Board, calling the UW System one of the most important “economic drivers and drivers of democracy” in Wisconsin. “It’s a value-added enterprise,” said Evers, who served 9½ years on the Board.
He urged Regents to continue to be advocates for students and for the System.
“You are here because you believe what you are doing for the University System is in the best interests of the state of Wisconsin. I thank you for that and look forward to working together with you as colleagues,” Evers said.
