Growth in the price of college tuition concerns many students, parents, taxpayers and policymakers. Recently, the Davis Educational Foundation interviewed 70+ college presidents about their views of what’s driving tuition increases and their responses seemed to contrast sharply with research in leading economic and policy journals. My project will conduct a literature review in order to analyze, compare and contrast the reasons given by researchers and those given by university decision makers. In addition, this thesis will add local qualitative research with UVM stakeholder interviews, to better understand their perspective
