Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio State Will Maintain Tuition Freeze
Listen to the Story
Ohio State University officials announced Tuesday they will maintain a freeze on tuition for the 2009-2010 academic year. The state budget proposal approved Monday by the Ohio House and Senate grants 4-year and 2-year schools authority to raise tuition by as much as 3.5%.
In an email letter to faculty, staff, students and parents, Ohio State President Gordon Gee said tuition will remain unchanged for a third year thanks to “the combination of increased state support, increased fall enrollment, and substantial internal University cost-savings, particularly in health care benefits.”
Gee noted that Ohio State is “bolstered by unparalleled support,” and the university will “intensify efforts to revitalize our state” through larger research efforts, more public and private collaborations, more job creation and expanded access to education. OSU Senior Vice President for Business and Finance Bill Shkurti cites three ways the university is offsetting the cost of the tuition freeze.
