MINUTES OF THE MEETING
OF THE
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
April 18, 1969

Miscellaneous from the Finance Committee meeting:

Secretary Breslin informed the Trustees that he had been asked to serve as a member of the permanent Senate Educational Advisory Committee to the Special Committee to Investigate Colleges and Universities chaired by State Senator Robert J. Huber.

After discussion, the Trustees instructed Acting President Adams, Chancellor Varner, and
Secretary Breslin to determine who best from MSU and Oakland University should serve on this committee. It was the consensus of the Board of Trustees that the Secretary should not serve on the permanent Senate Educational Advisory Committee.

Chancellor Varner explained that the Kresge Foundation had recently made a grant to Oakland University in the amount of $100,000 for expanded dressing facilities at Baldwin Pavilion. To have these facilities ready for the summer season, Chancellor Varner asked that the Trustees authorize the taking of bids immediately. Upon receipt of bids, the Trustees will be called and advised of the bids and asked to approve immediate construction, assuming the bids do not exceed the budget of $100,000.

On motion by Mr. Hartman, seconded by Mr. Huff, it was voted to approve the above procedure.

Regular meeting minutes:

Mr. Huff reintroduced the following motion which he submitted at the February Trustees meeting and which was referred to the Academic Council for study and recommendations:

Any increase in appropriations from the legislature this year be used to support up to an additional 1,000 MSU and 100 Oakland University disadvantaged first-year students.

Provost Neville reported that the committee appointed by the Academic Council has not had sufficient time to complete their report and would like to submit their recommendations at the May meeting.

Following discussion, Mr. Huff moved, seconded by Mr. White, that additional legislative funds which may become available be assigned on a high priority basis to the recruitment and admission of as large a number as possible of qualified disadvantaged students, both graduates and undergraduate, from the state of Michigan. Motion carried, with Mr. Merriman voting "No."

At the Trustees' meeting on January 18, 1968, a grant of $37,706 was accepted from Mr. and Mrs. George T. Trumbull to cover the cost of improvements made to the Trumbull Terrace on the grounds of the Meadow Brook Music Festival. This amount should be corrected to $37,000.

Communication from Chancellor Varner:

The Board of Trustees at their March 20 meeting approved an increase in the course fees of the Meadow Brook School of Music from $40 to $45 per week. We neglected, however, to request approval for a change in fee from $500 to $300 for the four-week master classes, which this summer will be conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy, pianist, and Itzhak Perlman, violinist, The proposed reduction in course fees results essentially from a significantly lower cost of engaging the instructional artists.

On motion by Mr. Stevens, seconded by Dr. Martin, it was voted to approve the Oakland University items.

Adjourned at 12:45 p.m.   (p.360)
