The University of Rhode Island is clarifying its on-campus housing policy after a student with a criminal record was found living in one of the dorms.  The student has since moved out.

Two members of the state board of higher education are calling for a re-assessment of a tuition waiver program for state college and university employees.

Michael Tikoian, Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors for Higher Education and committee member Amy Beretta say the waiver system may be inappropriate in the current financial climate.
