ernment's college assistance acts
and such agencies as the National
Institute of Health. Private grants
received a big increase this year
through the $55 million fund rais-
ing drive. The University also
takes loans on profit-producing
ventures, such as parking struc-
tures and sells bonds. Student fees
finance only a small part of the
total construction program.
The planning behind currently
approved priority facilities was be-
gun at least 10 years ago. Available
space and future needs had to be
determined far in advance. Just as
in 1892, when the University de-
cided to buy land a remote four
blocks from crowded Central Cam-
pus for its new hospital; so in
1951 another predicted space pinch
led to the purchase of the North

necting them have proven this
purchase to be a sound invest-

envy of most universities. An im-

The Residential College has been
selected between the medical cen-
ter and the entrance to North
Campus on a site which is now a
city golf course. Funding will be
delayed but it is projected that
with, its completion, one long, but
unified campus will be the result.
The residential program is tem-
porarily being housed in a portion
of East Quadrangle.
Although the commitment for
the facilities is firm, the arrange-
ments may not be ready for con-
struction for more than a year. If
the concept proves as glamorous
as expected, other units may be
established on the far end of North
But despite strikes and funding
problems, actual construction to-
day dots the campus and signs
mark the location of other major
facilities which are approved,
funded and soon to be built.
The most conspicious site today
is that of the $16.8 million Dental
school building, which stands in
back of Health Service. The Old
Dental School facility is scheduled
for demolition in the winter of
1968 to make way for a section of
the new building. The entire facil-'
ity will be ready by late 1969,1

for summer, 1969.
A new administrative office
building is rising directly in back
of the old administration building.
When completed, this spring, the
administration offices will be
moved and the old building will
be converted to provide much-
needed literary college office space.
On the medical campus, a ten-
year expansion program to meet
the needs brought out inda study
completed in 1965 is under way.
The study found that existing
facilities will not be adequate to
provide the minimum opportuni-
ties of medical education in 1975.
