Temple said. The UNC General Administration has drawn up a proposal to be presented to the Board of Governors at their meeting July 30 and 31, Temple said. The proposal calls for a 20 percent increase for in-state undergraduates which would raise tuition from $364 to $436. Out-of-state stu dents' tuition will rise by 9 percent from $2,074 to $2,260, Temple said. Temple said the increases were in line with increases at the other schools in the UNC system. The increases are the result of inflation, John R. Tate Jr. said. Tate is the chairman of the Board of Trustees' Committee on Needs and Resources. The legislature also appropriated $43.6 million to the UNC system for renovations and new buildings. The Board of Governors will allocate the money at their J uly meeting. The tuition is only part of the cost of a Carolina education. Proposed fees for the academic year are: - Athletic $50 , Health Service $134 Student Activities $30.50 N Student Union Building Debt Service Fund $134 Student Health Service Building Debt Service Fund $12 The total fees proposed to the Board of Governors are $257.50 for each student per year. This is added to the tuition rate to de termine what a student pays. If the Board approves all of the proposed increases, an in-state student would pay $693.50 and an out-of-state student would pay $2,517.50. "Nobody is going to be in favor of an in crease in tuition," Student Body President Scott Norberg said. "But, there is no other place in the country where you can get this quality education for that low cost" Norberg said the tuition had not been in creased in five years. However, Norberg pointed out that the cost of an education was rising while, the money available for students to pay for it was decreasing. The UNC Financial Aid Office estimated the increases when making awards for the coming school year. But, Eleanor Morris of the Financial Aid Office said, "We estimated little low and we're not going to have the money to make up the difference.". Morris said that the office estimated the in-state tuition to be $425, $11 short of the proposed figure. The estimate of out-of-state tuition at $2,200 is $60 short of the proposed rate. r 1 f- m RifiwIihYeQeiW Cy JOHN HINTON UNC officials are awaiting U.S. District Court Judge Franklin T. Dupree Jr.' 5 ruling on a proposal ending an 11 -year-old dis pute between the UNC 16-campus system and the federal government ' Dupree received a consent decree this week that reached an agreement between UNC and the U.S. Department of Ed ucation. He also received a leI memorandum opposing the decree from Joseph L Rauh Jr. of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and another document from UNC lawyers and U.S.t Justice Department attorneys $upportin3 the decree. Dupree said he would take th matter "under advisement" until he hid time to review the fl'in-s. "I plan to tike action on thb matter this week " he said. The News 2nd Observer reported that John R. Jordan Jr., chairman of UNC Board of Ccvernors, said Dupree could sln the decree, reject it or call in lawyers from both sides for more information on the case. William C Friday, President of the UNC system, said he was not disappointed that Dupree had not acted on the de cree. "After 11 years I learned not to be disappointed with the delays I take it all in stride," he said. The proposed settlement approved last month by the Board cf Governors calls for the establishment of 29 new programs at the University's five predominantly black campuses and desegregation goafs for the 1 6 schools. ' . Rauh said in a memorandum that Dupree should not ep prove the proposal. "Such approval would amount to no less thn judicial validation cf a triple end by the Department cf Education and the state around the federal courts of the District of Columb? 3, around Title V! and the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and around the 14th Amendment to the Constitution rning an end Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the 14th Amend ment outlaws racial discrimination and are used frequently in school desegregation lawsuits. Tbe Legal Defense Fund has not been successful in its ef forts with the U.S. District Court in Washington and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to gj in an in junction prohibiting the federal government from signing the agreement The memorandum said if Dupree's court approved the decree, the approval wou!d totally undermine the Title VI enforcement process.
