To the William Paterson University Community
At William Paterson University, we are mindful of the continued difficult economic conditions faced by our students and their families. Both the Board of Trustees and the University administration are committed to keeping costs as low as possible for our students.
With this in mind, we are working to increase operational efficiencies while ensuring that the savings benefit our students and are used to enhance educational services and programs. For example, our solar panel installation, the largest at a university in the nation, will save the University $4 million in energy costs over 15 years while supplying 20 percent of our annual energy needs. We also save costs through initiatives that include additional energy saving measures, joint purchasing with other universities, and programmatic collaborations with other institutions and organizations.
I’d like to thank Steve Bolyai, vice president for administration and finance, and members of the campus community for working to develop a more comprehensive budget process that enabled us to move forward with the lowest tuition increase in 30 years.
