Out-of-state tuition to rise 8-10%
'U' to freeze in-state tuition
By KERY MURAKAMI
University President Harold Shapiro said
yesterday that he will recommend to the Board
of Regents that the University freeze tuition for
The regents are scheduled to take a formal
vote on tuiton at their meeting tomorrow.
Shapiro, after returning from meetings with
University executive officers and regents in
Bay City this weekend, said he will comply with
a request by Gov. James Blanchard to freeze
tuition for Michigan residents for the second
year in a row, "in support of the continuing ef-
fort of the governor and the state legislature in
regaining the ground we have lost in state fun-
ding for higher education the past 15 years."
SHAPIRO explained that while the level of
state support for the University dropped from
60 percent of the University's operating budget
in 1975 to 47.5 percent in 1983, the state in-
creased its share to about 50 percent last year.
The move to freeze in-state tuition comes two
weeks after state budget director Robert Naf-
taly threatened to recommend a veto of some of
the increases in funding for higher education
unless state colleges and universities freeze in-
state tuition or increase it "just barely."
Last year, the University did not raise in-
state tuition, although tuition for non-Michigan
residents jumped 7 percent.
SHAPIRO DID not say how much out-of-
state tuition would have to be increased to
compensate for the freeze, but he said the
University would have to decide between
raising tuition by as much as 10 percent or
raising it by 8 percent and making about $2.5
million; in cuts from a tentative budget prevented

Shapiro, however, said that his "own personal
