Even if things remain uncertain at the Capitol, the University of Minnesota will review and pass a budget next month.
At a recent meeting, U President Robert Bruininks previewed what that budget might include. A wage freeze. A 5 percent tuition increase for resident undergraduates. The U contributing less to new employees' retirement plans.
Have an opinion about those changes? The Board of Regents wants to hear from you.
What: Public forum on U budget
When: Noon June 10
Where: Sixth floor of the McNamara Alumni Center, 200 Oak Street SE, Minneapolis
