Q. How do you plan to stop tuition from continuously increasing every year?
A. “It surely won’t happen next year and you can quote me on that. We’re going to make sure that administration and board members alike—recognize that although we as students pay much less than our competitors–or similar universities—that doesn’t mean that you can just raise our rates until we get to there point, that’s not what that means. Next year that won’t happen, this will not be an annual sort of gathering at Howard where we raise tuition. I think that’s the way we’ll curb it—is by making sure that out administrators know that we are low cost for a reason and we are going to stay below our competitors–as long as we possibly can.” – Marcus Carey (Campaign Slogan: Do Something)
