MINUTES OF THE MEETING
of the
FINANCE COMMITTEE
October 17, 1969

Recommendation of the Ann Arbor Trust Company for the University and the Michigan National Bank to arrange a one year's extension on the MSU-Oakland Loan of approximately $3,848,000 which is identified as Trust 5942.

On motion by Mr. Nisbet, seconded by Mr. Huff, it was unanimously voted to approve the above recommendation.

Communication from Acting Vice President Wilkinson:

On August 28, 1969, Mr. Benjamin H. Anibal gave 1,000 shares of General Motors common stock to Oakland University. The value of the stock on the date of the gift was 71.9375 per share and totaled $71,937.50. Half of the donation is to be used for the purchase of books for Kresge Library and half for the Mary Fogarty Anibal Memorial Scholarship Fund. Mr. Anibal wishes no public announcement to be made of this gift.

It is recommended that the Board of Trustees accept this gift and authorize the sale of the securities at its October meeting so that the proceeds may be used for the intended purpose.

Chancellor Varner submitted the following resolution which had been unanimously adopted by the Oakland University Senate at its meeting October 16, 1969:

Whereas, Oakland University is now observing its tenth anniversary; and

Whereas, Oakland University, in its first decade, has been substantially benefited by the support of the Board of Trustees of Michigan State University and by the generously given guidance and counsel of the members of the faculty and staff of Michigan State University; and

Whereas, Oakland University has developed into a major, complex university with an enrollment of nearly six thousand and has added a vigorous graduate program to its original offerings; and

Whereas, Oakland University has been permitted in the course of these ten years to conduct its own affairs as an essentially autonomous institution under the guidance of the Trustees of Michigan State University; and

Whereas, Michigan State University is now in the process of naming a new president, who will of necessity have demands on his time of greater priority than the problems and concerns of a rapidly expanding affiliate campus:

Now be it hereby resolved that the University Senate of Oakland University representing the faculty, students, and staff,

First, expresses its deep gratitude to the Board of Trustees and to the faculty and staff of Michigan State University for their guidance, their counsel, and their assistance in uncounted ways in these ten years, and

Second, respectfully requests that the Board of Trustees take the appropriate and necessary action to authorize Oakland University to become an independent member of the system of state colleges and universities serving the citizens of Michigan, effective at the earliest possible date, and hopefully not later than January 1, 1971.

On motion by Mr. Stevens, seconded by Mr. Nisbet, it was unanimously voted to refer this resolution to a committee composed of the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees, the University attorney, the Executive Vice President and Secretary to the Board of Trustees, and the Chancellor of Oakland University for study and recommendations to the Board as a special order of business at the December meeting.
