Students have expressed frustration with the administration's handling of the budget, threatening to strike if the Board of Trustees approves proposed tuition increases.Student leaders decried Khoury's statement as vague and inconclusive. The lack of particulars in Khoury's letter, however, has left students questioning whether the board is committed to transparency.In the statement, Khoury reiterated the board's support for the university administration.
