Vol. XC., No. 37-S Ann Arbor, Michigan-Saturday, July 12, 1980 Ten Cents Sixteen Pages
calis for 13%
tuition rate increase
EE-Copyright 1980, TheMichiganDaily
Thirteen is the magic number.
After months of uncertainty over the exact figure, the Uni-
versity, called for a 13 per cent across-the-board increase in
tuition for the 1980-81 academic year, The Daily learned yester-
day. The Regents will vote on whether to approve the ad-
ministration's budget recommendations, including the tuition
hike, at their July 17 and 18 meeting in Traverse City.

The 13 per cent recommenda-
tion applies to all University
units except the Law School,
where a 17 per cent hike was
recommended. A 10 per cent
increase was recommended for
the Extension program.
IF THE REGENTS approve the
tuition increase package, un-
dergraduate rates for Michigan
residents would jump to $682 for fresh-
persons and sophomores and $768 for
juniors and seniors. Undergraduate
fees for non-residents would climb to
$2057 for freshmen and sophomores and
$2215 for juniors and seniors.
The 13 per cent hike represents the
largest overall increase in tuition in the
past five years.
None of the University's eight Regen-

ts would comment on the ad-
ministration's tuition increase proposal
until the recommendation becomes
public on Monday.
The tuition increase is just one of a
set of budget recommendations which
will be presented for Regental approval
next week. The administration also
recommends approval of a set of broad
budget proposals which are based on a
maximum increase of three per cent in
state appropriations to the University.
University President Harold Shapiro
said last night the administration has
developed a set of "fallback proposals"
in the event of an actual decrease in the
state's appropriation.
"WE CAN NO longer depend on the
state alone to provide funding for a high
quality program," Shapiro said. He ad-
ded the University will step up efforts to
obtain non-state support from en-
dowments and other sources.
According to a top University ad-
ministrator who asked not to be iden-
tified, the administration is "gambling
a little bit" by recommending even
broadly-constructed budgets before the
state appropriation is known.
In an information packet circulated
to the Regenta and reviewed by the
Daily, the University pledges that the
tuition increase will not prevent
qualified students from enrolling in the
University for financial reasons:
"WE EXPECT to increase our finan-
cial aid allocation to ensure that no
students will be denied the opportunity
to attend the University of Michigan for
lack of money."
The administration, in its budget
recommendation, also calls for a total
salary increase program that would
give faculty members a nine per cent
hike in compensation. As with the
proposed tuition increase, the salary
increase would represent the largest
jump in several years.
Shapiro compared the University's
tuition increase proposal to others in
the state and around the country: "I
think it'll be right in the middle of
Michigan institutions. With respect to
the private (Michigan) institutions we
will be on the low end. Compared to
public out-of-state institutions we will
be on the high end," due, he said, to

The University Athletic Department
may establish a program to provide
"comprehensive academic support"
for the Michigan football team, The
Daily has learned.
The program would cost more than
$30,000 to operate during the 1980-81
academic year and would be im-
plemented and managed by the Univer-
sity's Reading and Learning Skills Cen-

"We're just working out some of the
bugs," he said. Two of the "stumbling
blocks" facing the program, Hoey ad-
ded, are the degree to which upper-
classpersons will participate in it
(freshpersons will be required to par-

A COPY OF the proposal reviewed by
The Daily stated the program, which
would extend throughout the entire

academic year, would be divided into
four phases - assessment, action
plans, treatment, and evaluation. The
first two phases would bring together
players and counselors from the
reading center to reviewa player's past
academic history and design "in-
dividual support plan." Freshpersons
would meet with counselors on an in-
dividual basis, while upperclasspersons
would participate in group planning.
More than 85 per cent of the
program's budget is targeted for the
treatment phase, which would consist
of seven courses. Courses would be of-
fered in such areas as "power lear-
ning," time management, remedial
reading and writing, reading
strategies, and academic writing. In
the last course, athletes "will work on
