DETROIT (WWJ) – There could be more emphasis on the ‘green’ — at the home of the green and gold.

WWJ’s Citybeat Reporter Vickie Thomas reports that Wayne State University President Allan Gilmour says the board will take up the issue of a tuition hike when it meets on Wednesday. Gilmour believes Wayne State will follow suit with other Michigan colleges and universities.

“Well, everyone is going up, roughly 7 percent because the governor in his budget said when he cut us 21 percent, the cut would be only 15 percent; I underline only 15 percent, if we held tuition increases to no more than 7.1 percent,” Gilmore said. “So everyone is more or less in 6.9, 7 percent, 7.1, something like that.”

Gilmore took part in a panel discussion at the Transformation Detroit media briefing, which continues Tuesday with Mayor Dave Bing.
