Boston University is increasing tuition by 4.25% for the 2022-2023 academic year, citing inflation.
In a May 6 letter to Boston University faculty and staff, Robert A. Brown, the president of Boston University, explaining that an increased inflationary environment, in part, has necessitated the tuition increase.
"We are caught in an inflationary vise between the institutional pressures and the impact on our students and their families," Brown wrote.
Brown added that he is "mindful" of the impact that the tuition increase has on students and their families, and said that the increase in tuition does not keep up with the rate of inflation, offset the costs of university operations, or "fund salary increases that would fully mitigate the effects of inflation on the families of faculty and staff."
For the 2021-2022 school year, Brown noted that tuition was increased by 3%.
