KU faculty, staff push for improved tuition benefits for themselves and their families

They are fighting for everyone not just themselves. Think about every admin assistant who could get their degree or put their kids through college.

Some of you people just do not get it. It's not all about Levy or Ginther this benefit helps the facility maintenance worker who makes 35k a year or any other staff person on campus. This benefit is common throughout higher education. For example, most Ohio and PA state schools allow dependents of their faculty and staff get 100% tuition benefits on undergraduate degrees and tax at 40% graduate tuition. This is huge for administrative assistants and lower level employees. Do people making six figures take advantage, sure but the vast majority of university employees are not making six figures. Think about the big picture and do not let the fact that you paid for your own education get in the way of the betterment of the community. This benefit is a huge recruiting tool and also helps in retention.
