ASU could raise tuition this summer

— A possible tuition increase at Athens State University and a contract renewal for university president Dr. Bob Glenn were discussed at Friday’s board of trustees meeting.

The 11-member board could consider the items when it reconvenes on July 19 at Founders Hall. An agenda item to consider Glenn’s contract was tabled after a request by Glenn, who joined Athens State in 2008.

“I’m not in any particular rush. I have confidence in the board, and I hope they have confidence in me,” Glenn said.

Glenn said a possible tuition increase would be discussed in July because the school has not received allocation numbers for next year’s budget.
