A Big Win for The Coalition For Tuition Equality

Since the site went live, a lot has happened. We had the protest on October 25, and the CTE has remained hard at work on this issue.
I just wanted to give them a quick shout-out. Today, everyone involved in this effort is celebrating a big win. The University of Michigan Regents voted on the issue, approving a change to Michigan's residency guidelines.
The approval means affected students pay $27,250 less in tuition. In the fall Michigan residents will pay $13,142 a year, while non-residents will pay $40,392. Under current tuition levels, the difference amounts to $109,000 over the course of four years.
Many people fought long and hard for this, and FOKUS' My Dream Is Bigger Than campaign was just the beginning.
