How sweet: UTK Faculty calls for tutition hike

Faculty Senate President John Nolt tells The Knoxville News Sentinel he knows this would be a burden for students and their families. But he says it could help students graduate sooner if UT can hire more instructors and offer more courses.

Nolt says the earliest it could go into effect is January, but next fall seems more likely. UT-Knoxville raised tuition 6 percent this year while coping with an $11 million cut in state appropriations.
