University of Iowa president suggests tuition hike

University of Iowa students would pay quite a bit more in tuition if a new plan is implemented. University president Bruce Harreld told a Board of Regents tuition task force Monday that the school is looking to increase tuition by slightly more than seven-percent every year for the next five years.  That would apply to resident undergrads while non-resident undergrads would see an increase of a little more than two-percent each year.  Harreld says the extra tuition money would be used to boost faculty pay, among other things.
