FINANCING EDUCATION
Regents
approve
tuition
Tuition increases 6.7
percent for in-state
and 4.9 percent for
out-of-state students
By JOSEPH LICHTERMAN
Daily News Editor
After a historic drop in state
funding, the University's Board
of Regents voted on Thursday to
increase tuition for in-state and
out-of-state students.
In a 6-2 vote, the regents
approved a 6.7-percent tuition
increase for in-state students and
a 4.9-percent increase for out-of-
state students. The tuition hikes
translate to a net increase of $797
for in-state students and $1,781 for
out-of state students for next year.
Despite the increases, Univer-
sity administrators emphasized
that some students may actually
pay less than they did for the 2010-
2011 academic year, as the amount
of need-based financial aid avail-
able will increase by 10.9 percent to
$137 million.
"These extraordinary amounts
of support mean that a typical
Michigan resident undergraduate,
with a family income of less than
$80,000, pays less today ... than in
2004," University President Mary
Sue Coleman said at the meeting.
In addition to tuition increases,
the University was forced to cut $44
million from the budget in order to
close a $47.5 million shortfall as a
result of a15-percent cut in the state

'U' offers students
and faculty smoking
cessation programs
By BETHANY BIRON and
YOUNJOO SANG
'Editor in Chief and
Daily StaffReporter
As signs begin to appear along
the perimeter of campus signify-
ing the imminent arrival of the
campus-wide smoking ban that
takes effect on July 1, University
officials and students are prepar-
ing for the upcoming change.
The ban is part of a University
initiative to engage the campus
in a "process of social change"

that will encourage healthier liv-
ing, according to Robert Win-
field, the University's chief health
officer, director of the University
Health Service and co-chair ofthe
Smoke-Free University Steering
Committee.
According to the Smoke-
Free University Initiative Report
released in January and devel-
oped by the Smoke-Free Univer-
sity Steering Committee, the ban
will allow smoking only on side-
walks adjacent to public roads on
the campuses of all three branch-
es of the University - Ann Arbor,
Dearborn and Flint - and in the
privacy of one's own vehicle.
In regard to enforcement of
the ban, Winfield said students
who fail to comply will have a

complaint filed with the Office of
Student and Conflict Resolution
where they will undergo a media-
tion process before consequences
are determined.
For faculty who refuse to
adhere to the ban's requirements,
Winfield said they will face a stan-
dard disciplinary process that may
lead to a supervisor placing them
in a smokingcessation program. If
they continue to smoke on campus
property, Winfield said this could
"ultimately lead to serious disci-
plinary action or discharge."
Winfield said that students
and faculty members who may
struggle with quitting smoking
as a result of the new policy have
a multitude of resources available
