What are the students hoping to accomplish? What are the alternatives if the state does not raise tuition and fees? Note, I am not condoning the latter necessarily. However, I'd like to know what other options the state has considered. I'm assuming that if tuition and fees are not raised then funding will be cut in such a way that classes will have to be eliminated, programs will be cut, etc.
I would be interested in hearing from faculty at the state schools, particularly part-time instructors on what conditions are like where they teach. How have you been affected by the state's budget problems?
