Gov. Jennifer Granholm administered the oath to 40 members of her newly appointed Higher Education Commission, and she gave them two charges and a warning. She wants the group of educators, university presidents, and business and labor leaders to find a way to double the number of college students in the state over the next ten years and to make sure there are good paying jobs when they graduate.
She does not want the panel to spend a lot of time on the issue of college tuition. "We are willing to discuss that," she tells reporters, “but this commission is not about laying the groundwork to provide more state support.”
