Mt. Pleasant, Michigan 48858 - «HAPPY SPRING}' Friday, April 23, 1971 Fee increase on semester will depend hours taken Central announced Wednesday that it will adopt a fee schedule next fall that will not result in across-the-board increases in student fees. The new fee schedule, based on recommendations made earlier this year by Governor William G. Milliken, will mean higher fees for some students and lower fees for others, depending upon the number of semester hours carried. Student fees for Michigan residents will be $15 per semester hour for undergraduates and $20 per hour for graduate students. Non-resident fees will go to $35 an hour for undergraduates and $40 for graduate Students. The current registration fee of $7.50 for five semester hours or less and $15 for six hours or more a semester will remain unchanged. CMU currently employs a sliding" scale for determining gen eral fees, with costs based on the number of semester hours taken. Costs range from $69.50 for a Michigan resident taking two semester hours to $220 for 11 or more hours. The present system charges the same for graduate and undergraduate students. The new student fee schedule will mean lower costs for stu/ients taking light classloads and slightly higher costs for those taking heavy classloads. Under the new schedule, for instance, a Michigan undergraduate taking 15 semester hours will pay $240 as opposed to the current charge of $220 a semester. A Michigan undergraduate taking only a three-hour load, however, will pay only $52.50 as opposed to the current charge of $98.50. The same student enrolled in 12hours of classes will pay $195 under the new schedule instead of the present $220.

Wednesday, the University's newly organized Development Office will become a part of the Office of the President. Since last summer, the Development Office has operated as an arm of the office of the Secretary of the Board of Trustees with Odykirk serving as assistant director of development. General iresponsibil- ities for the development operation were assumed by Terrance Carey, secretary of the Board of Trustees. In his new post Odykirk will the start of tne ian semcoid, Boyd voices concern over proposal defeat . ^ .-j* i. ~e 4-v.a tfannitv teaching 1 V. 3* !v dent In accordance to Tuesday's defeat of the faculty teaching contract for next year, President William B. Boyd issued the following statement; I want to make a progress report on the state of our collective bargaining with the faculty association. By way of background two points are important. First, faculty salaries at Central* Michigan University are now the third highest in the State of Michigan. We share with the association a determination to maintain over the years ahead this kind of strong competitive position in the academic market. Second, the university remains as committed as ever to th,e preservation of academic freedom and faculty personnel policies which meet or exceed.the standards of the American Association of University Professors.- These areas are guaranteed for this community through the procedures of the Academic Senate and the Board of Trustees and the negotiated agreement supporting and* preserving these rights. By now you know that the agreement recently reached between the bargaining teams was not ratified in a faculty ^ i.v^. «^.„ inis*r»tion and the association 1 ft .v in CMU development activities, that area has shown marked growth. In f970, fpr instance, total income from gifts was $82,000 up from the $29,000 total of the previous year. The average gift was up from $22.70 to. $44.34 and the number of donors up from 1,290 to 1,487. In addition to raising a records amount of money during the past year, the development office has reorganized its accounting procedures and conducted an extensive study of the feasibility of a major capital campaign. The launching of that campaign, probably the most ambitious in CMU's history, is expected to be annqunced soon. Commenting on the organizational change and appointment of Odykirk to director of development, 'Carey said Wednesday, "This is an important step in the maturation of the University's development program, and one which places us in a position to initiate organized programs of private support that will be of lasting benefit to CMU." Jerry Tubbs said, "When one considers that wage settlements ^^er students with 55 semes- and cost of living increases a- t hours of credit or less will cross the country in the past required to live in Unlver- year have been running well over ■ nousing neXt year.
