Readers of this blog have surely noticed my strong antipathy toward colleges and universities raising their tuition, room and board at twice the rate of inflation over the last 20 years. There is no way they can sustain those levels of increases and expect to secure their long-term survival.
Either university officials have seen the handwriting on the wall, they’re trying to buy good PR or they’ve simply decided to do the right thing (or all three). Any way you cut it, Sewanee is to be congratulated!
P.S. Here’s another story from the Chattanooga Times-Free Press.
