The request, a 15.3 percent increase over this year's budget, is the first round in the annual budget appropriations process. Art Ellis, vice president for public affairs, told Board Finance Committee members Thursday. Approval of the request was not unanimous, however. Trustee Ray LaBounty. of Ypsilanti. cast a "no" vote, as he did the night prior, during Finance Committee deliberations. LaBounty said Sunday his opposition was directed to the six program revision requests that went with the budget. "The requests. I felt, were not definitive enough." LaBounty said. "I didn't understand what they had in mind with them. I have no understanding whatsoever of the million or so dollars for the MMK Michigan Molecular Institute affiliation). "And for the rest of the budget. I'm unclear as to how the money would be used to foster the academic programs." he said. "There just wasn't enough information given for us to work with." The Board also authorized President Harold Abel to spend as much as S25.OO0 to help covers costs of sending members of the Marching Band and cheerleaders to Fresno.

Registrar Alice St. Clair said changing from a 16-week semester to a 15-week semester would not be too much of a problem if both instructors and students were willing to meet at 8 a.m. and beyond 2 p.m. She also said some department planners place first priority on scheduling classes within their own buildings and look no further. "I don't believe there would be an actual shortage of classrooms if we work together on it. However, we can't always allow for a favorite class time with an ideal location." St. Clair said. Instructors prefer to schedule classes in their own tailored buildings where they are used to the seating, desks, tables, chalkboard, projection screen and accoustic facilities adapting to teaching styles, St. Clair said. "Instructors like classes within their own buildings, and they are very reluctant to move out. We try to honor that if they have back to back classes, but if there aren't enough classrooms we have to redistribute. "St. Clair said. Registrar Scheduling and Space Coordinator Janet D'Ambrosio said some departments cooperate by willingly teaching outside their own buildings like the Psychology Department, but others do not.
