"The Board of Regents and Kaler have failed every student in Minnesota"

Published in the Minnesota Daily, from U student Nicola Brambilla:

"Section 12 [of the university's charter] reads as follows: “The admission fee to the University and the charges for tuition in the several Departments thereof, shall be regulated and prescribed by the Board of Regents; and as soon as in their opinion, the income of the University fund will permit, tuition in all of the Departments shall be without charge to all students in the same, who are residents of the Territory.'"

"I interpret this as meaning that the regents, who represent students across the state, should make it their top priority to make tuition free for all in-state students. The Board of Regents and Kaler have failed every student in Minnesota by putting University profits and administrative salaries over the interests of students."

  1. I'm sure the tuition rates, administrative costs, and outlays for sports are on par with the University's peer institutions. That argument wouldn't cut much ice coming from a teenager, but there you have it.
