KEARNEY — Although the
Legislature granted NU its highest
budget increase in 10 years,
money for increased faculty
salaries is likely to come from stu
University of Nebraska
President Dennis Smith told mem
bers of the NU Board of Regents at
their meeting Saturday that a
tuition increase is unavoidable.
The board didn’t discuss the
issue, but Smith said he wanted
the information available to the
public before he proposed a
tuition increase at April’s meeting.
To fund NU’s budget simply
through tuition hikes, an increase
of nearly 10 percent is needed.
If the board approves a 10 per
cent increase, in-state undergrad
uate students would pay an addi
tional $276. Out-of-state students
would pay $751.50 more.
The goal of upping tuition is to
bring NU’s faculty salaries to the
midpoint of its peers.
“Even though there’s been a
reasonable (budget) increase, it
will go to faculty salaries, which
has been and will be our top prior
ity,” Smith said.
Members of the Legislature’s
Appropriations Committee will
tackle NU’s budget today in a
committee hearing, Smith said.
In other business, the regents
passed a resolution introduced by
Regent Chuck Hassebrook of
Lyons that asks NU to look into
ways to cap its athletic program
comes after the NU Athletic
Department’s budget, which is
about $39 million, ended up
about $250,000 in the red last fis
If spending keeps increasing,
it could begin to take away from
money set aside for academics,
The Athletic Department has
already tried to trim down its
budget, when it cut out-of-state
tuition waivers for members of
the Cornhusker cheerleading
squad and the Scarlets Feb 5.
But Interim Chancellor
Harvey Perlman reinstated the
current members tuition waivers
a few days later.
A spokesman for the Athletic
Department said he didn’t know
where the funds would come from.
Other budget adjustments
include postponing minor reno
vation projects around UNL,
reducing travel parties for teams
and warning teams to carefully
watch every dollar to make up for
last year’s overflow.
Regent Drew Miller ofPapillion
said he thought the salaries for
coaches were outrageous.
“I don’t want the extremes of
professional sports to happen at
the collegiate level,” he said.

How Maternal Instincts
Shaped the Human Species
Sarah Blaffer Hrdy
Professor Emeriti Department of Anthropology. University of Caiiforcua-Davis
Dr. Hrdy discusses situation-dependent maternal commitment
to children and the evolved human ability- of infants to constantly
monitor their mothers and adjust accordingly, with profound
implications for such uniquely human capacities as our ability’ to
articulate the needs of those around us. and care about them. This
perspective on the evolutionary’ origins of compassion raises an
unsettling question about the future: even if we persist as a species,
will we still be “human" in the way we currently define the term’
