UCF SGA President Cortez Whatley is scheduled to attend this meeting. It’s the BOG’s first major meeting since the body’s controversial approval of maximum tuition hikes for several universities — including UCF — despite strong opposition from Fla. Gov. Rick Scott, and many parents and students.
Whatley argued for the hikes, saying they were needed in the wake of budget cuts to the university. State lawmakers, however, had argued that UCF’s reserves could have been used instead of the budget cuts.
