CORVALLIS, Ore. — Oregon State University students, faculty and staff are holding a rally Monday. The rally kicks off a statewide student campaign for a tuition freeze.
Tuition increased 7 percent last year and 8 percent the year prior. If funding for the Oregon University System is not raised, tuition is expected to rise another 7 percent next year.
The rally coincides with the first meeting of the higher education committee in the Oregon House. Faculty will be speaking about the importance of keeping education affordable and accessible for all.
The rally is from 12:30-1:30 p.m. on the steps of OSU’s Memorial Union.
