Panel aims to make University of Virginia more affordable
The work begins Friday in Northern Virginia when a Board of Visitors charged with that task meets.
Rector George K. Martin has said the goal is to have a new tuition and financial aid plan to bring to the full board in the fall.
The Daily Progress reports that U.Va.'s tuition and fees have nearly doubled in the last 10 years. The Charlottesville school is one of the most expensive public institutions for out-of-state students in the country.
Part of the upward tuition spiral has been driven by a decrease in state appropriations. They fell about 32 percent, or $51.5 million, from 2007 to 2012, according to the school.
The panel is meeting in Herndon.
