The LSA Academic Judiciary
ordered a recount of the LSA Stu-

because of possible violations
during the tallying procedure.
Many of the LSA justices
believed that the elections direc-

about how the counting proce-

mathematical errors. Members
of the United Students party

Rackham student Brian Whit-

ener presented his findings on
University finances and how
they affect AST. He said the Uni-
versity blames the increase in
tuition on a decline in state fund-
ing, however, financial reports
for investors present a more
complex diagram of the Univer-
sity's revenue.
Whitener described four
flows of money into the Univer-
sity that showthat the increasing
importance of student tuition is
more complicated than pictures
of declining state funding would
lead the public to believe.
Whitener said one of the
reasons tuition is rising so
aggressively is because it's the
University's only source of
revenue that comes with "no
strings attached." He argued
that tuition can go toward any-
thingthe administration desires,
including higher salaries for
Revenue from tuition is
placed in the University's gener-
al fund, according to the Office
of the Vice President for Com-
munications. Tuition cannot be
used to support the Athletics
Department, University Hous-
ing, the University of Michigan
Health System, student publi-
cations and most construction
projects. The Michigan Daily,

like other organizations in the
Office of Student Publications,
does not accept any funding
from the University.
In describing the University's
expenditures, Whitener claimed
that funds have been going into
building construction and into
administrators' salaries, citing
that administration salaries have
risen 26.9 percent from 2006 to
He added that about a decade
ago, the University made a deci-
sion to switch to attracting out-
of-state students who pay higher
tuition and started construction
projects to do so.
Whitener said that the Univer-
sity's rising tuition and focus on
attracting out-of-state students
has transformed the composi-
tion of the student body. From
2000 to 2010 students accepted
