ED BOARD REJECTS TUITION WAIVERS

A 3-3 split vote Tuesday by the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education defeated a proposal to create tuition waivers for the spouses and dependents of employees in the state higher education system.

Despite support by staff and university presidents, three board members -- Ken Tweten, Marijo Shide and Jack Olin -- opposed the proposal. Board President Jack Pfister, who was recovering from surgery, was not at the meeting. Members Gene Martin, Darlene Leinen and Lee Christensen supported the waivers.
