Haslam Begins Higher Ed Review On Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Governor Bill Haslam will begin a review of the state's college and university systems at his residence on Tuesday.

The meeting will include business, legislative and higher education leaders.

Among those to speak will be the deputy director for policy development at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and a research professor and senior economist at the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce.

Haslam will moderate discussions after each presentation.

The meeting comes after the University of Tennessee Board of Trustees and the Tennessee Board of Regents voted last month for tuition and fee increases of as much as 8 percent for the fall.
