OREM, Utah (AP) -- Utah Valley State College leaders have outlined plans for the money that will be earned from an increase in tuition.
Last week, the school's board of trustees voted to approve a five-point-25 percent increase in tuition for the 2005-2006 school year.
The five-point-25 percent increase will generate two-point-three (M)million dollars.
U-V-S-C President William Sederburg plans to use 725-thousand dollars of it to recruit competitive students, start an honors program and keep students from transferring or dropping out.
He'll use 775-thousand dollars to increase salaries of faculty and staff. About 520-thousand dollars will go to starting new degree programs and improving the library and technology in the classrooms.
About 130-thousand dollars will go toward marketing, public relations and improving performing arts. Finally, 150-thousand dollars will go to making sure the school has effective systems and processes to be accountable to the public.
