A former UNC system president says that one-time, unlimited tuition increase for in-state students is an awful idea. C.D. Spangler was in Chapel Hill this week along with three other former presidents to discuss the system’s 40th anniversary. They spoke in Memorial Hall, and Spangler laid out a temporary plan for fixing the universities’ budget problems without raising tuition.

Spangler’s 10 suggestions include stopping all out-of-state travel, restricting scholarships to in-state students, and holding off on expanding athletic facilities.
