MINUTES OF THE MEETING
of the
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
June 14, 1968

Mr. Breslin reported on the actions taken by the legislature with reference to appropriations for Michigan State University, Oakland University, and for capital improvements.

The following changes and corrections in the salary schedules distributed at the May Board meeting were recommended to be included in the finalized budget. These include errors, oversights, and corrections.

English Dept: Joseph W. DeMent, Assoc. Prof salary increase 1968-69 to $11,700.
History Dept:  W. Patrick Strauss,
     "        "
     "        " 1968-69 to $12,800
Chancellor's Office: Lewis Pino,    Ass't to Chancellor      "        " 1968-69 to $21,500

On motion by Mr. Nisbet, seconded by Dr. Smith, it was unanimously voted to approve the salary schedule in its entirety as recommended by the President, including the detailed salary schedule distributed at the May Trustee's meeting and the above corrections.

Mr. Varner presented a budget plan for Oakland University. His problem in building the budget has been complicated by the fact that Oakland's legislative appropriation is still in doubt. The best information available indicates that the Senate is ready to settle for an increase in Oakland's appropriation of $587,000.

Mr. Varner recommended that he be authorized to prepare a budget with total expenditures of $7,450,179, with the understanding that this figure will be increased or decreased depending upon the variation in the final appropriation action from the contemplated $587,000 increase shown above.

On motion by Mr. Stevens, seconded by Mr. Thompson, it was voted to approve this recommendation with the understanding that this is only a tentative approval and that Chancellor Varner will accompany his detailed budget with a fee schedule designed to produce the funds required to balance it, this action to become final only upon the approval of the Trustees at the July meeting.

Communication from Roger Wilkinson:

The Ann Arbor Trust Company has prepared a number of resolutions which are necessary to close the $3,000,000 Housing and Urban Development loan for Oakland University.

This loan gives a 3% interest rate payable over a 40-year period and will be used to retire a construction loan with the National Bank of Detroit.

Will you please have the Trustees approve the following documents:

a. Resolution authorizing the issuance and sale of dormitory revenue bonds
in the amount of $3,000,000. (Resolution will be included in permanent minutes.)
b. Parietal rules and rate resolution. (To be included in permanent minutes.)
c. Resolution authorizing advertisement for public sale of the bonds.

On motion by Mr. Nisbet, seconded by Mr. Thompson, it was voted to approve the documents as recommended by the Ann Arbor Trust Co.

Authorization to sell U. S. Treasury Bonds with a face value of $10,000 received from Mrs. Charlene Fogarty McKee for the Mary Fogarty Anibal Memorial Fund at Oakland University.

On motion by Mr. Merriman, seconded by Mr. Stevens, authorization was approved for above sale.

Communication from Chancellor Varner:

Act 252, Public Acts of 1967, has listed among the approved projects for Higher Education $50,000 for campus improvement at Oakland University (Phase I -- Roads, lighting, landscaping -- complete plans and construction). Work on this project has been delayed several months until the location for the Central Heating Plant was finalized. This has now been done, and Oakland University recommends for the, Board's approval the following firms in order of preference to be commissioned to do the contract drawings, specifications, and supervision for this construction:

Johnson, Johnson & Roy, Inc., Ann Arbor
Giffels-Webster, Inc., Birmingham
Johnson & Anderson, Inc., Pontiac

Mr. Varner requested that this also cover the $250,000 appropriation recently approved by the Michigan legislature for the 1968-69 academic year.

On motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Nisbet, it was voted to approve Chancellor Varner's recommendation to employ Johnson, Johnson & Roy, Inc. of Ann Arbor at the rates approved for such services by the State Building Department. (p.325)

On motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Merriman, the following resolution was unanimously approved.

RESOLUTION ON DISRUPTION OF UNIVERSITY ACTIVITIES

Michigan State University stands for freedom of speech, freedom of inquiry, freedon of dissent, and freedom to demonstrate in a peaceful manner. This is its traditional position, and is hereby reaffirmed by the Board of Trustees.

The University holds that freedom requires order and discipline, and to protect the one
it must maintain the others. The right to this freedom and ixhe responsibility of the Trustees and Officers to maintain this order and discipline are shared by faculty, students, and the members of the general public who come to this campus. They are all entitled to pursue their legitimate goals without interference. This is the traditional position of the University, and has been most recently reaffirmed in the Bylaws of the Board of Trustees and the Report on Academic Freedom for Students, adopted by the Trustees.

The Trustees reaffirm the long-time understanding that any effort to impede the holding of classes, the carrying forward of University business, the arrangements for properly organized and scheduled events on the campus, or the discharge of his responsibility by any University officer or employee constitutes an invasion of the rights of the faculty, students, and the general public, is contrary to the interests of the University, and will not be tolerated.

In any such attempt to interfere with the University activity, the leaders and participants are held responsible and are subject to appropriate legal and disciplinary action, including suspension and expulsion from the University, under established procedures.
