Eastern Michigan University is increasing funding for public safety and financial aid next school year.  The board of regents today approved a $301.9 million general fund budget.  

President Susan Martin says the additional $4.6 million in aid means more outstanding students will receive Emerald Scholarships covering close to half of their tuition.  She says these students are a good investment because they are taking more classes, staying on campus, and graduating.  

Students will pay an extra $10 per credit hour as tuition increases by 3.2 percent.  This matches the cap to be eligible for state performance funding.

Like many, I first came to this area when I started school at the University of Michigan, then fell in love with the community and haven’t left. After graduating from U of M in the mid 1990’s I interned at WDET for several years, while also working a variety of jobs in Ann Arbor. Then in 1999 I joined the WEMU news team.
