KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Western Michigan University Board of Trustees on Wednesday approved the tuition rate for next year. It's going up by 3.57 percent, which WMU President Doctor John Dunn says is well within the state's new tuition increase cap of 3.75.

Dunn thinks the tuition rate was designed to be sensitive to students while ensuring the university continues to thrive.

Also this week, the WMU Board approved next year's budget. It's eight million dollars more than last year's, at about 366.6 million dollars. Dunn said that overall spending is going up, but they're also pulling back in many other ways to avoid going into deficit.
