By Nancy seidEman
Emory University’s Board of Trustees approved the 2008–09 tuition rates at its Feb. 14 meeting, confirming the University’s commitment to attracting and enrolling the best and brightest students and recruiting and retaining a faculty of distinction.
“We’re not sitting still,” says Earl Lewis, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. “We are recruiting 100 more Emory College faculty to improve the student/teacher ratio, we have ambitious strategic priorities that provide for new facilities and support services for students and faculty, and we are improving accessibility for students who wish to pursue an Emory education.”
The 2008-09 tuition rates reflect increases from 3.2 percent in the Graduate School to 9.6 percent at Oxford College, which is in a multi-year building program to invest in contemporary residence halls and academic buildings equivalent to those on the Atlanta campus.
Tuition for undergraduates in Emory College and Goizueta Business School will be $35,800, an increase of 5.6 percent, and the School of Nursing (undergraduate and graduate), $31,800, 5.3 percent.
