CALL TO ACTION: Committee Hearing on Tuition Equity this Thursday

Time of Truth for Tuition Equity
Committee Hearing on March 3rd, 2011

This Thursday, Tuition Equity (Senate Bill 742) will be heard in front of the Senate Education Committee, and it is our chance to ensure that the truth about Tuition Equity prevails at the Oregon State Capitol once and for all.

What: Senate Education Committee Hearing on Tuition Equity

Where: Oregon State Capitol, 900 Court Street Northeast, Salem, OR

When: 12:00 noon – Gathering in the Capitol Rotunda

We will gather to show that students, teachers, faith leaders, business owners and community members believe in the future of our students. Students wear your caps and gowns!

1:00 pm – Committee Hearing Begins (Hearing Room B)

We need to fill the committee room and halls of the capitol with our support for tuition equity during the hearing.

Many Republicans and Democrats have realized that tuition equity is the right thing to do to follow through on an investment in Oregon’s students beyond the high-school level, to raise the level of education in Oregon and infuse our public universities with more tuition dollars.

These Republicans and Democrats know it’s about guaranteeing that our workforce is well-educated and well-prepared to compete in an ever-changing global economy. Yet we have seen them get distracted by politics before. It is our job to be there and remind them to do the right thing for Oregon’s future.
