Proposed fee hikes open
Cougar News Services
The University may be considering raising
fees again, but it doesn't mean students won't be allowed to air their
concerns or at least know what
the proposed fees are and where they will
be going. UH will hold two open Student Fee Forums, today and Thursday.
The first forum will be held from noon
to 1:30 p.m. in the Houston Room at the University Center. The second,
also in the Houston Room, will be
held from 5:30 to 7 p.m., allowing the
night class students to participate.
There will be representatives from student
affairs, business and finance administration, academic affairs, and information
technology present to
make their respective presentations. The
finance department will present an overview of all the proposed fees, while
the entire panel will accept
questions from the audience.
The proposed fees are only recommendations
to UH President and UH System Chancellor Arthur K. Smith and have yet to
be approved by the
UHS Board of Regents. The Board will next
meet in February.
No fee hike would take affect until Fall
Student fee forums have traditionally been
held in the World Affairs Lounge, but damage caused by Tropical Storm Allison
forced the University
to move them upstairs. But the open space
of the Houston Room means there will be plenty of room for student participation.
