for a proposed $5.00 refundable student fee to support programming at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. The question passed by 2,104 "yes" votes to 199 "no'* votes. This student fee will be used to support productions at the Krannert Center and will not be used for instructional purposes. Proposed by the dean of the College of Fine and Applied Arts and the director of the Krannert Center, the refundable fee was discussed extensively with an advisory group and by the Student Government Association. As a result of the fee, all Urbana students will receive a $5.00 discount for any Krannert performance in the Marquee Series, by the Illinois Repertory Theatre, by the Illinois Opera Theatre, and by the Illinois Dance Theatre. Students who choose a refund will be ineligible for the special discount. I recommend approval.
On motion of Ms. Reese, this recommendation was approved. Tuition Rate increases for Fiscal Year 1994, Chicago and Urbana I
(12) In February, the Board of Trustees reviewed background information on tuition rates at each campus for FY 1994. Tuition increases have moderated significantly in recent years. General increases in tuition have been enacted only two times in the past four years — despite substantial budgetary strain on the University. In its annual budget recommendations to the governor and General Assembly, the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE) did not recommend a general tuition increase for next year. While the governor's budget for higher education has been announced, no official allocation of that budget has been made and no action has been taken by either house of the General Assembly. Uncertainty as to the final outcome of State support remains. Nonetheless, no general tuition increase is being recommended for University of Illinois students at the current time. Phase II of the differential tuition increases for science and engineering, approved by the board last year, is recommended, along with a refinement of that program to include certain other curricula. Additional increases in two professional areas are also recommended. These targeted increases are outlined below.
II Special Tuition Differentials
Last year, the board approved a tuition program at both campuses to address urgent needs in the Colleges of Engineering. The program involved the following factors: A tuition differential of $400 at Chicago for all students enrolled in the College of Engineering, phased in over a two-year period at $200 per year. The second phase of the surcharge will take effect in FY 1994. A tuition differential of $500 at Urbana-Champaign for all students enrolled in engineering curricula, phased in over a two-year period at $250 per year beginning in FY 1993. The second phase of the surcharge will take effect in FY 1994. At the Urbana campus, engineering curricula includes all chemical engineering, agricultural engineering, bioengineering, physics, and computer science curricula. In addition, undergraduate enrollments in the College of Engineering at Urbana-Champaign will increase by 250 students over a four-year period beginning in the fall of 1993. The incremental revenue generated through this program will be directed to each of the colleges.
