The total represents an increase of 4.6 percent from last year's total of $849.3 million.
In presenting the 1996-97 overall budget, Kenneth P. Burns, vice president for business services and assistant treasurer, said: "As the second year of a two-year integrated budget plan, we are able to address inflationary budget pressures and undergraduate instructional needs while holding our student-fee increase to a 20-year low."
Purdue President Steven C. Beering said: "We are grateful that the 1996-97 budget will allow us to give merit increases that keep Purdue competitive and to address our ever-expanding needs for improvements in undergraduate computing capabilities, new innovations in teaching technologies, and state-of-the-art equipment that prepares our students for success in the workplace."
