Hats off to President Kazee and the University of Evansville for implementing an immediate four year freeze on undergraduate tuition for all incoming students.
In this current economic climate, a college education for our children has skyrocketed to a level that prohibits many High School Seniors from continuing their education . It a bold and courage's move on U of E's part. It's a move that only a few Universities in the U.S. have implemented.
What's more impressive and extremely rare, is the brilliant strategic move by Dr Kazee and the Board of Trustees that calls for a new and expanded program in UE's Center for Career Development. It's called Career Advantage. It begins this fall, and the career support begins before the students enrolls at UE , and continues after the student graduates with extensive career preparations and strong alumni networking. In today's challenging job market, a college degree is only a true value if it provides for a career after graduation.
This program makes a University of Evansville education a smart investment. I hope that other universities in the country copy this innovation.
