“This is a bold step by Gov. Nixon that goes against the national trend of increasing tuition and decreasing support for higher education. I appreciate Gov. Nixon’s leadership and pledge our accountability to be great stewards of this institution in these extremely difficult economic times. We remain committed to emphasizing access and affordability for students and their families.”-Gary Forsee

“As we look for ways to fix our broken economy, we must ensure that MIssouri students have access to higher education and job training, and that our institutions have the funding they need to operate. This agreement is a real investment in Missouri’s economy and our future. I commend Gov. Nixon for bringing everyone to the table to develop a solution that puts Missouri’s students first.”-Dr. Michael T. Nietzel
