Gov. Matt Bevin’s disbanding of the University of Louisville’s governing board has cast a cloud of growing uncertainty over the institution.

While debate over the legality and wisdom of Bevin’s move continues, routine issues such as hiring deans and passing the budget remain undone on campus.

  Morehead State University's Board of Regents has approved increases in tuition and residence hall fees beginning this fall. Morehead tuition will increase by 5.33 percent for undergraduate students, and residence hall rates will increase 4 percent. The board approved the tuition hike in the 2016-17 operating budget totaling $150.9 million. That budget represents a decrease of $6.8 million or 4.3 percent, and does not include faculty and staff salary increases.
