A University of Nebraska regent says cutting out-of-state tuition would be a good way to attract more students and provide more money to offset declining state aid in the NU system.
This, after Omaha Senator Kermit Brashear demanded the Board of Regents find new ways to fund NU as state aid declines.
Regent Kent Schroeder of Kearney says offering in-state tuition rates to Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and South Dakota students would increase an enrollment that is currently declining.
Opponents of the idea say that additional out-of-state students would be more likely to leave the state after graduation.
