EMU to host Higher Education Subcommittee on Appropriations hearings

YPSILANTI — Eastern Michigan University will host the Senate Higher Education Subcommittee on Appropriations April 23 at the new student center, Room 310. The hearings are open to the public.

Scheduled to appear before the subcommittee for this session are: EMU (10-10:30 a.m.), University of Michigan-Dearborn (10:30-11 a.m.), Lake Superior State University (11-11:30 a.m.), Northern Michigan University (11:30 a.m.-noon), the American Association of University Professors (noon-12:15 p.m.) and The Farm Bureau (12:15-12:30 p.m.)

“Eastern Michigan University playing host to the Senate Higher Education Subcommittee on Appropriations is very important to us. This opportunity will allow us to put on display some of the “jewels” on our campus like the new Student Center and Halle Library.  More importantly, the legislators will be able to tour Pray Harrold and Mark Jefferson personally to appreciate why their support of these projects are so important to the students and faculty here at EMU,” said Freman Hendrix, governmental relations officer for EMU.

Three other sites will host subcommittee hearings. They are Saginaw Valley State University (April 20), Calvin College in Grand Rapids (April 27) and Michigan Technological University in Houghton (May 11).

Members of the Senate subcommittee include: Sen. Tony Stamas (chair), Sen. Tom George, Sen. Bill Hardiman, Sen. Michelle A. McManus, Sen. Jim Barcia, Sen. Glenn S. Anderson, and Sen. Liz Brater.
