Setting costs and honoring faculty were among the items of business conducted by the Fresno Pacific University Board of Trustees in regular session June 21-22 on campus.
Tuition for 2003-04 was set at $17,370, up from $16,200 for 2002-03, the upcoming school year. Room rates in 2003-04 will range from $1,065-1,285 and meal plans from $450-1,495 per semester. The average increase of 6.5 percent in room rates was driven by higher utility and insurance costs.
The first and current athletic director, a quiet but effective teacher of biblical and religious studies and a long-time coach were among those honored during the annual Fresno Pacific University Faculty and Staff Appreciation Dinner.
