The California State University Board of Trustees on Wednesday approved a 9 percent tuition increase ($500) after having to close a public meeting due to protests that involved chanting and whistle-blowing that disrupted discussions, The Los Angeles Times reported. Protesting students said that the trustees were too quick to impose additional charges on students. A statement from the university said that four people were arrested, some police officers suffered injuries and the glass doors to the chancellor's office were shattered. The regents also asked state officials to add $333 million to the university system's budget for 2012-13.
