House votes to

Special to the Daily
LANSING - The state House
of Representatives passed a bill
yesterday that would grant the
University a $15 million increase
over last year's state funding if both
the Senate and Gov. James Blan -
chard approve it.
The University could get $240
million from the state, the largest
share of the $1.1 billion the bill
earmarks for higher education.
According to state official Kathy

University official Roberta
Palmer said the University is
pleased with the increase, but said
it will not cover the University's
expenses for next year. She said
when the University submitted its
budget request, it asked for a $45
million increase.
To meet costs Palmer said there
is "little doubt" the University will
raise tuition to supplement state
appropriations.
But Rep. Morris Hood, one of
the bill's sponsors, said Blanchard

Senate passes it.

search for
president
By MARTHA SEVETSON
This week the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
invited faculty members to join a
committee to seek University
President Harold Shapiro's suc -
cessor.
The Faculty Committee on the
Presidency will serve in
conjunction with the Michigan
Student Assembly appointed stud -
ent committee, along with an alum -
R ni panel. MSA and the alumni have
not begun to form their commitees.
The committees will compile a
list of qualifications and nominate
candidates for the presidential spot.
"The role of the faculty is not to
select the person, but to be wise
about excluding people they don't
want the (Board of Regents) to
accept," said SACUA member
Charles Lehmann, an education
professor.
The regents, acting as the
Presidential Selection Committee,
will interview candidates based on
the lists of criteria submitted by the
other committees.
According to Regent Thomas
Roach (D-Saline), the regents will
make the final decision after the
interviewing process - other
committees may also participate in
the queries.
"The process is essentially the
same as in 1966 and 1978," Roach
said.

within the next few days.
University President Harold

The vice provost will work with
executive officers, deans, and
administrators on issues such as
minority recruitment and retention,
as well as establish initiatives for
ethnic diversity on campus.
In addition, the vice provost will
decide how to allocate the $1
million Affirmitive Action Initi-

"The new vice provost will not
only have to implement policy, but
also work to unite minority in -
terests on campus," said Virginia
