American U. administrators say facul-
ty members may be guilty of grade infla-
tion following a Registrar's Office report
that students have received a dispropor-
tionately high number of A's and B's, and
some professors say they are being pres-
sured to give more low grades.
Provost Milton Greenberg said, "When
70 percent or more of grades are B- or
better, it looks like we have a problem.
I've asked deans to look into the issue
and discuss it with their faculty. We need
to evaluate the way we're evaluating."
Some faculty members believe the
administration is pressing them to dis-
tribute a higher number of low grades.
Assistant Professor Terence Murphy
, said, "There's a fanatical attempt to
enhance the reputation of the school.
The words pass down from provost to
dean to faculty. They say, 'You seem to be
giving too many A's, B's and C's, and not
enough C-'s, D's and F's.'"
However, AU President Richard
officials suspect grade inflati
Berendzen said the administration does
not plan to require professors to allocate
a certain number of low grades to their
students, as such a plan would infringe
upon academic freedom.
Greenberg said, "We believe in aca-
demic freedom and the right of profes-
sors to determine grades based on their
"I'm suggesting we take a look at their
evaluations and see what can be done
about raising standards."
Berendzen said grade inflation pri-
marily hurts those students who work
hard and deserve high grades.
"If 70 percent of our students were on
Dean's List, would it really matter? It
would be like lowering the basketball
hoop at Bender Arena by three feet. Even
I could make a basket.
"If they inflate enough, grades will be
ignored by graduate schools because all
of the transcripts look the same,"
"If movie reviewers told you every sin-
gle movie was the greatest, you wouldn't
know what to go see."
In response to the report, Associate
Dean of Faculties Ann Ferren led a
workshop on grade inflation for profes-
sors in the College of Arts and Sciences.
She said students want demanding
classes, and emphasized they should
not receive undeserved grades.
"If you look at the figures, many stu-
dents are calling their courses average.
At a minimum we should be making our

Four-year universities and colleges
across the country are continuing to
increase tuition - surpassing the
inflation rate for the ninth consecu-
tive year, according to a national sur-
The College Board of Manhattan
reported that average annual charges
at public four-year schools are up 7
percent. The inflation rate for the 12-
month period ending in June aver-
aged 5.2 percent.
Critics of the growing tuition costs
accuse colleges of basing rate increas-
es solely on those of competing insti-
Robert B. Iosue, former vice presi-
dent of Long Island U.'s C.W. Post
Campus, testified before a congres-
sional subcommittee on college costs
that recent increases across the coun-
try are due largely to reductions in
faculty workloads and the construc-
tion of "showcase" facilities.
According to the study, increased
demands for higher faculty wages and
specialized faculty members have
contributed to the increases.
"There is a lot of money involved in
obtaining quality faculty," said
Metropolitan College Vice President
for Business and Finance Jan Cassin.
The Denver, Colo., college has
retained the lowest percentage
increase of all Colorado state schools,
according to Cassin. It's held at 5 per-
cent since the 1985-86 academic
"The trustees intentionally held
down tuition at the state colleges
because of the access issue," Cassin
said. She believes that high charges
could significantly alter the role and
mission of state-funded schools.
The Manhattan study also said part
of the increase is due to students'
"designer demands." On many cam-
puses, these include health club facil-
ities, personal computers and private
Cassin said she believes MSC stu-
dents' willingness to do without.those
"designer demands" has allowed the
college to control its increases.
