OU administration
discusses merger
Naylor anticipates
enrollment increase
"The NU-OU merger is going
to make quality education at the
University readily available to the
citizens of our state," commented
Omaha University.
As of July 1, Naylor will retain
his current duties under the title
of head of the University of Ne
braska at Omaha.
, He explained that the immediate
effects of the merger at the Oma
ha campus will be a sharp in
crease in enrollment.
"We anticipate an enrollment of
10.500 part-time and full-time stu
dents," Naylor said.
Lower Tuition
The lower tuition for the Omaha
school is the primary reason for
the increase, he explained, par
of Omaha nroper.
In 1966-67 students paid for 74
percent of the Omaha school's op
erating costs. The budget for 1963
69 shows that students will pay
about 49 per cent of the operating
cost. The budget is $7,130,000.
Naylor said the school will also
receive fiscal security and a de
gree of prestige from the merger.
Omaha University has no dormi
tories, and all students must com
mute to and from the campus.
Municipal university
Omaha has operated the insti
tution as a municipal university,
fully funded by the local property
tax, mill levy and student tuition
Two efforts to increase the two
milt levy had been rejected by
Omaha voters and, as a result, tu
ition fees have increased consid
erably. Vice chancellor Jcseph Soshnik
of the University of Nebraska ex
plained that it was because of the
high percentage of the operating
' costs that student tuition was pay
ing for that Omaha officials ap
proached the State Legislature ask
(T$ n
ing state aid for the municipal uni
versity. Used existing structures
Soshnik explained that it was
agreed to that the aid should be
coordinated through existing struc
ture. At the request of the Omaha
Board of Regents, both schools be
gan exploring the possibility of a
merger. Staffs of both schools
drafted legislation which was
adopted almost as written by the
State Legislature in January, 1967.
Omaha voters approved the
merger earlier last December pav
ing the way for the implementa
tion. A steering committee has di
rected the merger action thus far.
Though it formally terminates on
July 1, "the committee will remain
in existence oast the date of the
formal merger," said Merk Hob
son, University vice chancellor and
"We will be trying to investigate
through appointed committees the
best possible ways to achieve bene
fits to both schools through the
merger," Hobson said.
Naylor said the programs most
affected by the merger will be the
nursing and medical technology
programs. The Omaha campus
would retain and strengthen its
first year nursing program, with
second year program of clinical
work being placed in the hands
of the University at Omaha Medi
cal Center.
There is a strong possibility of
the Medical Center developing a
six-year medical education course
after the merger, according to Dr.
Cecil Wittson, dean of the NU
medical center.
Naylor said their is a definite
possibility that courses taught by
Lincoln professors could be of
fered on the Omaha campus. He
said such courses would probably
be offered on Saturdays or in the
