CINCINNATI — University of Cincinnati President Santa Ono is recommending that trustees freeze the tuition rate for students from Ohio.
Ono told trustees on Tuesday that he’ll refuse a salary increase or bonus for two years. He also suggested selling the condominium used as the residence of two previous school presidents to establish a scholarship fund.
The newly installed leader says the university needs to convey its commitment to accessibility and affordability for students.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the in-state tuition rate is just under $10,800 at the university’s main campus. The board is expected to vote on the in-state tuition freeze at its June meeting.
