UAF Says Tuition, Research Funding Unlikely To Offset Rising Costs
The University of Alaska Fairbanks says tuition and research funding are unlikely to increase enough in the coming year to offset rising costs. In a memo, Vice Chancellor Pat Pitney says UAF will face significant budget issues in fiscal year 2014, starting July first. Pitney says those issue are manageable through increasing non-state revenue and decreasing spending. UAF’s leadership is also soliciting ideas from faculty and staff who are invited to submit suggestions to an online suggestion box.
