Mesa State College students voted this week to increase their fees by $5 per credit hour to cover pay raises to their instructors.
The $5 fee hike could create almost $700,000 in additional revenues, which the school says will go toward facultiy compensation.
The measure passed with 79% in favor of the hike and 21% against.
Mesa State Spokeswoman Dana Nunn says the results show that students are dedicated to retaining and attracting quality faculty for the school.
In the election students also voted to re-elect Student Body President Adam Davenport, along with electing a vice president and seven senators.
