KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The University of Tennessee’s Board of Trustees has approved tuition increases for the coming fiscal year that the school says are the lowest in 30 years.

According to a news release from UT, in-state tuition will increase no more than 2.2 percent for most undergraduates. The majority of fees will not increase. The net increases range from 0 to 3 percent, depending on the campus.

The increases are part of a $2.2 billion budget approved by the trustees at their quarterly meeting in Knoxville on Thursday.

Also on Thursday, UT President Joe DiPietro announced the appointment of Noma Anderson as a special adviser on diversity and inclusion. Anderson is dean of the UT Health Science Center College of Health Professions.

DiPietro said “a diverse and inclusive culture equals success.”
