UCA board to meet tomorrow

Posted By on Thu, May 7, 2009 at 11:09 AM

The agenda is online here.  Looks like a couple of big items are coming up including a possible two percent tuition hike.  The Log Cabin Democrat in Conway also reports that the board will take up the issue of discretionary scholarships.  The practice of giving out these scholarships, which you might remember were doled out with no criteria or accountability by former UCA president Lu Hardin, was terminated by the UCA board earlier this year.

The board will revisit the topic Friday and consider approving a new program, termed the Assistance Program for Students with Exceptional Circumstances.

The main points of the program, as listed in the agenda, state the trustees will set the amount to be used each year, a committee will be in charge or reviewing and accepting applications, the committee will make decisions based on "exceptional financial need" and "extraordinary academic excellence" and a limit of $3,000 per applicant per semester is suggested.

For more info, and for other topics to be discussed, check out the Log Cabin article.
