University officials refuse to release details regarding record tuition hike
Sept. 27, 1973 – University officials refused to release information explaining their rationale for a record 24 percent tuition hike, yesterday.
Director of the Office of Financial Analysis, Frederick Oliver blocked a request by a Daily staff reporter to be given the statistical information that would ultimately explain the tuition hike. Oliver’s decision echoed a previous refusal to make this information available by Chief Financial Officer Wilbur Pierpont.
Pierpont justified this response by saying, “I’m not going to give this to you because everybody will have a different idea about what it means.”
The Daily learned last week that Vice President for Academic Affairs, Alan Smith calculated a 1973-74 academic year budget that, including the 24 percent fee hike, would provide $2.4 million more than is needed to meet the projected budget.
Previously, Smith denied that a tuition hike would provide the University with extra revenue.
