The first of four scheduled meetings for the state Board of Regents’ Tuition Task Force has been cancelled.

The meeting had been planned to take place from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday at the Pappajohn Education Center, 1200 Grand Ave., Des Moines, with invitations extended to legislative, economic-development, and business stakeholders.

“Unfortunately, we were not going to have a high enough turnout of presenters to hold the July 27 meeting,” said Regent Larry McKibben, the chair of the task force, in a press release. “We need to be mindful of everyone’s time and the use of state resources. As we are having three other task-force meetings, there are several opportunities to hear feedback from a wide variety of constituents, including, hopefully, those invited to the July 27 meeting.”

Meetings remain scheduled in the three public universities governed by the regents — the University of Northern Iowa on Aug. 7, Iowa State University on Aug. 9, and the University of Iowa on Aug. 14.

Institutional heads will present five-year tuition plans at these meetings. All groups invited to attend the July 27 meeting are encouraged to submit written comments to the task force or attend one of the three meetings scheduled in August.
