Tuition Task Force

The Board of Regents Tuition Task Force was established in 2017 to facilitate public discussion regarding the issue of tuition at Iowa's public universities. The task force examined the core issues and strategies central to the process of setting tuition at the three Regent Universities and welcomes input from legislative and business stakeholders, university representatives, and the public.

In the summer of 2017, the task force held three public meetings around the state. During these meetings, representatives from Iowa's public universities presented their five-year tuition proposals to the task force. All meetings were open to the public and included an hour-long listening session. In addition, all meetings were livestreamed and archived.

The Tuition Task Force provided a summary of the meetings to the full Board of Regents at its September meeting.
