Higher ed 'in jeopardy,' forum says

the proposed'federal budget will be in
the area of financial aid. If it is ap-
proved, there will be a 12 percent aid
reduction immediately, and a 62 per-
cent reduction from present levels by
the fall of 1983.
Despite substantial tuition incre4ses,
and declining financial aid Roach said
applications for the University went up
last year, 'and estimated that ap-
plications will stay up, but emphasized
the mix of students will be different.
ANOTHER MEMBER of the panel,
Eastern Michigan faculty member
Marjorie Lansing, said that EMU is
also experiencing a similar financial
"Higher education has become a
leading political issue, Lansing said,
"and we must get it back on the
political agenda." She advocated
several courses of action to aid the
future of higher education in Michigan.
"At the state level we must make
higher education a political issue, and
at the same time, we need to ask for
more not less, in state aid," Lansing
"IT APPALLS me that leaders in
higher education are pushing
vigorously downsizing and cost-
effectiveness programs. We should be
emphasing the legitimate, significant
place of higher education in the fun-
ctioning of the state of Michigan." She
added that "education has become
more political in the past year than it
has been since Sputnik."
Roach said he agreed with Lansing's
assessment of the importance of the
education issue in the political arena.
"This is an important political
issue-all of our institutions of higher
education are in jeopardy.",
Roach emphasized the significance of
research in the University's overall
budget picture, but added that "the
research income has grown only at the
rate of inflation for the past ten years."
Roach advocated the possibility of Ann
Arbor being an ideal site for robotics
development, saying that all studies in-
dicate that high technology is the way
ROACH WARNED that in addition to
affecting students and research,
Reagan's proposed budget would
critically affect the faculty. Roach said
that over the last ten years, salaries are
up only 6.5 percent, and that this
represents a real wage decline.
