Wilcox said geographically diversifying USF will not only open resident students to various cultures, but also more resources.
"If anything, it's going to expand access because, remember that these non-resident students at the undergraduate level pay nearly three times the tuition and fees that a resident pays, a full-time resident student in Florida," he said. "In many respects, the increased tuition revenues that non-resident students pay will help offset some of the budget reductions we faced as of late. But, most importantly, (it) allows us to hire more professors (and) to enhance the quality of the academic delivery that we are able to provide to all students at the University of South Florida. I think that is the most important point for all of us to understand."
