Tuition and Fees for 2014-15

Executive Cabinet
University of Louisville

Dear Colleagues:

This year’s Task Force on Tuition and Fees has been established and their work has begun. I have again asked that the Task Force review all requests for differential and/or cohort-based tuition as well as to take into consideration the entire package of fees and expenses borne by students. Specifically, I have asked them to also look at auxiliary and other mandatory fees affecting students, i.e., parking fees, health fee, meal plan fees, housing rates, IT fees, specific-designated fees (rec center), etc.

In addition, any proposed new fees or increases or decreases to existing fees need to be reviewed by this committee. Please send all fee requests to Bob Goldstein by December 24 or you may request an extension to January 10, 2014 (extension requests must be approved in writing), so that the task force will have adequate time to review your recommendations and make a recommendation to the Office of the President. It would also be helpful to the Task Force if you would fully answer the five questions regarding the rationale/purpose of the proposed or revised fees. This will help the Task Force when it looks at the “complete package of expenses borne by students.” Impact statements deemed incomplete will result in the request for supplemental information or a formal presentation to the Task Force.

I’ve attached a copy of the Procedures for Establishing and Reviewing Course and Non-Course Related Students Fees (PDF), the Program Course Fee Request Form(DOC), and the Auxiliary Fee Form (DOC). If you have any questions, please contact Bob Goldstein, Vice Provost for Institutional Research, Effectiveness and Analytics, at 852-6169.

I thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Tuition and Fees for 2013-14

Executive Cabinet
University of Louisville

Dear Colleagues:

I am in the process of establishing this year’s Task Force on Tuition and Fees. I am asking the Task Force to take into consideration the entire package of expenses borne by students. Specifically, I want them to not only look at tuition and course fees, but to also look at auxiliary and other mandatory fees affecting students, i.e., parking fees, health fee, meal plan fees, housing rates, IT fees, specific-designated fees (rec center), etc. In addition, I am asking the task force to review our tuition policies.

Any proposed new fees or increases or decreases to existing fees need to be reviewed by this committee. Please send all fee requests to Bob Goldstein and Mike Curtin by December 3 so that the task force will have adequate time to review your recommendations and make a recommendation to the Office of the President. It would also be helpful to the Task Force if you will send along a list of all fees/expenses charged by your unit with a brief impact statement for each fee/expense—even though you propose no change. This will help the Task Force when it looks at the “complete package of expenses borne by students."

I’ve attached a copy of the Procedures for Establishing and Reviewing Course and Non-Course Related Student Fees (PDF) as well as the Fee Request Form (DOC). If you have any questions, please contact Bob Goldstein, Associate Provost for Academic Accountability, Institutional Research and Effectiveness, at 852-6169.

I thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Choices and Expectations,
remarks delivered at Freshman Convocation

I was in the grocery store last Saturday. It’s a good grocery store – one of the biggest in the region as a matter of fact. Even though I pretty much buy the same things every week, like most Americans I think that the more choices I have the better life is, so sometimes I go there because anything I could possibly want is there.
