Haslam Kicks Off Higher Ed Review Next Week

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Governor Bill Haslam will begin his review of the state's college and university systems next week.

The Commercial Appeal reported Haslam will assemble business, legislative and higher education leaders for a meeting at the governor's residence on July 10.

An invitation sent from the governor's office to members of the University of Tennessee Board of Trustees, Board of Regents and others says the meeting will also feature presentations by three leading higher education policy experts and that Haslam will moderate discussions after each presentation.

The meeting comes days after the UT Trustees and the Board of Regents approved tuition and fee increases of as much as 8 percent for the fall.
