Proposed fee hikes open for discussion

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 2003.

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.
