Chancellor Cheng has just announced the name of the appointee to the position vacated by Gary Minish (Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs) in January: John Nicklow.
The appointment still has to to be approved by the Board of Trustees, however, so we’ll see what happens next.
Speaking of the BOT, on their agenda today is voting on proposed tuition and fee increases. The tuition increase proposed by the administration sits at 6.9% (or $504 for undergraduate tuition and $542 for regular graduate tuition — the totals are different for the medical school and the law school). Fees are proposed to move up $68.80 for both undergraduates and graduates. This increase would put total cost of tuition and fees for undergraduates at $11,037.88 and $11,652.28 for graduate students (this is resident tuition and fees).
