'-'[''-■ Making only minor changes, Academic "Senate approved the tenure document that ad originated from the Provost Office. Tenure is an insurance to faculty mem bers of permanence in employment at the University. Thes fundamental purpose of tenure, according to the new policy, is protection of academic freedom. Revisions of tenure policies have been a long term project, said. Neil S. Bucklew, vice provost. However, he added that most of the work on the document has been done this last semester. The new. policy is a mixture of recommended policies from the American As- Candidate protection law failed to help Wallace Even though George Wallace was being guarded by secret service agents he was >t by bullets from an assassin's .38 caliber snub-nosed revolver.

Decisions were made by senators on only the new material inserted in the proposed document. The legitimacy of changing the requirement for tenure during a faculty member's probationary period was questionned by senators. The probationary period lasts anywhere from two to five years depending on the rank at which a faculty member is^originally hired. An aggreement was reached by specifying the time and method of notification to faculty members on any changes in the requirements for tenure. Notice of changes in requirements applying to a faculty member's eligibility for tenure, according to the policy, would be given in writing to.the faculty member when new standards are developed. "It is perfectly fair to make special notice of changes in tenure procedures to the perspective tenure-holders," said David L. Lawton, professor of English. Further action was taken by the Senate with the approval of specified periods for granting tenure according to academic rank. An instructor is tenured after he has been reappointed for five years. An assistant professor is granted tenure after four years and an associate professor is automatically tenured after three years. These ranks are appointed on a yearly basis. A professor, however, is appointed initially for a two year period and is tenured when he is reappointed the first 4ime. Because there is becoming a scarcity of tenure positions, some senators desired •a .longer period of time before granting tenure. An increase of five members and changes in the selection of the Tenure Faculty Hearing Committee was approved by Senate. The ..executive board of Academic Senate will draw by lot before October 1 a panel of ten faculty members to serve on the hearing committee. Previously^the President appointed five, members from a list of ten persons nominated by the faculty.. $1 fee hi increases Tuition and fees will go up $1 per semester hour next year at Central Michigan University. * The Board of Trustees approved the $1 increase Friday "with the greatest reluctance" after postponing action on the hike for a month to see if fiscal developments might permit bypassing an increase for next year. The ,$1 .mcrease will apply equally to Michigan and out-of-state residents and to graduate as well as undergraduate students. . - It "will bring the cost per semester hour to $16 for Michigan undergraduates, $21 for Michiganv graduate students,$36 for out-of-state undergraduates; and $41 for out-of-state graduate students. The new fee schedule goes into effect With the beginning of the 1972 summer session. ~ Even with the increase, Michigan under graduate students will be able to attend summer school at cheaper rates than they would have paid last summer when CMU charged according to a sliding scale based on number of hours enrolled. An undergraduate taking six semester hours this summer will pay $96 in tuition and fees instead of the $123 he paid for the same class load last summer. For taking one three-hour class, he will pay only $48 this summer »s compared to $91 lagt Suuitnef. For the Michigan undergraduate taking, a normal class load during the 1972-73 academic year, the increase would mean a cost of $496 instead of the .current $465. The current non-refundable registration fee will continue to be assessed under the new policy. It calls for $7.50 tor. students taking five hours or less a semester and $15 for students taking hours or more.
