Affordability Taskforce


"As a public institution of higher education, maintaining affordability is one of our highest responsibilities."  

-- Daniel J. Bradley, President, Indiana State University


Based upon its commitment to ensuring more Hoosiers can afford to pursue their higher education aspirations, Indiana State University intends to limit future increases in student costs to no more than increases in the Consumer Price Index, President Daniel J. Bradley announced in his annual address to campus on October 6, 2011.

On October 14, 2011, the Indiana State Board of Trustees approved a recommendation from President Bradley and Trustee President Mike Alley to reduce a scheduled 3.5 percent increase in in-state undergraduate student fees to 1.5 percent.

President Bradley has also appointed a campus task force to examine affordability across all areas of the university. Specifically, the task force will look at facilities and space utilization, instructional costs, housing and dining, and books and supplies. The recommendations of the task force, which is chaired by Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Jack Maynard, are due by the end of January 2012.

Updates from the task force and its subcommittees will be posted to this website as available.
