The Miami University Board of Trustees holds its second meeting of the semester today.
According to Claire Wagner, associate director of university communications, the board will be voting on several important issues.
“They will vote on a tuition increase for undergraduates,” Wagner said.
She said the tuition increase would apply to the main and regional campuses. It would entail a 3.5 percent increase for in-state students and a 3 percent increase for out-of-state students.
Additionally, Wagner said the board will vote on the creation of a new academic division for the regional campuses.
Wagner said other issues will be voted on as well.
“They also are going to vote on funding for three new residence halls on western campus,” she said.
The board will vote on the approval of changing the title of the School of Fine Arts to the School of Creative Arts, as well as on the approval of creating a new Interactive Media Studies Bachelor of Arts degree.
During the meeting, the board will hear reports from President David Hodge, the Academic and Student Affairs Committee, the Finance and Audit Committee, the Vice President of University Advancement Brad Bundy, Student Body President Nick Huber and Student Trustee Lot Kwarteng.
