'U' raises tuition

by Melissa Peerless
Daily Staff Reporter
unanimously approved the
University's General Operating
Budget - including a 9.9 percent
tuition increase - for the 1992-93
school year at its regular meeting
University Provost and Vice
President for Academic Affairs
Gilbert Whitaker said the budget is
one of "shared sacrifice."
Whitaker said.
In order to compensate for de-
creased state and federal funding,
the University is asking each of its
departments to make a 2 percent
across the boardcut in its operating
budget. Faculty, staff and adminis-
trators will receive a small cost of
living adjustmentstipendinstead of
a salary increase.
And students and their families
will be asked to pay more to attend
the University.

Thursday, Provost and Vice
President for Academic Affairs
Gilbert Whitaker announced a
"shared sacrifice" plan during a
presentation on next year's Uni-
versity budget. Under the pro-
posed plan, all salaries would be
frozen at current levels, due to
budget financial shortfalls. The
money crunch is caused prima-
rily by cuts in state funding.

remarks, yesterday University
