Ohio University won’t buy the $1.2 million house it was considering for its president after school leaders learned that the home’s owner promised to donate money as part of the deal.
UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank, however, proposed a four-year plan that called for raising nonresident undergraduate tuition by $10,000, to $35,523, and graduate tuition by thousands of dollars by the 2018-2019 academic year.
The committee approved only the first two years of Blank's plan, which would translate to a $6,000 jump for nonresident students by the 2016-17 year.
