Kansas Board of Regents approves room and board increases
Associated Press - December 18, 2016 12:06 pm
Faculty and staff at the University of Kansas reported declining morale because of concerns about salary, lack of support, increased workload and the state government's increasing role in running the university, according to a "climate" survey taken on the Lawrence and Edwards campuses last fall.
Students at the University of Kansas will face at least a 3 percent increase to live on campus next year.
University of Kansas students next year will pay $5,910 to live on campus, which is $172, or 3 percent, more than this year.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/2gJjzZN) that adding in about $4,150 for meals means a student’s total is $10,060 for the year.
The figures are for what the university describes as a “typical” dining plan and double room in a renovated residence hall.
It was among state university housing and dining rates approved last week by the Kansas Board of Regents.
