Affordable Tuition Priceless for Meehan

posted by John Baibak -

University of Massachusetts President  Marty Meehan focused on tuition affordability in his second annual State  of the University address on Monday.  

Meehan pledged to work with  Massachusetts businesses to increase scholarships, to embark on a  200-million-dollar capital campaign to increase financial aid, and to  expand UMass online education programs and partnerships with non-profits  that work with low-income students.  

A recent report from the  Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center indicates the average student  debt for those attending public colleges and universities in the state  is getting closer to the debt levels of students who attend private  institutions.
