The most startling finding to come from the study was that 89 percent of the victims of death-row inmates were middle class, while 83 percent of the victims of nondeath-row inmates were poor or unskilled, Clarke said. [Read article]

UA administrator to retire after 22 years

Today marks Janet Bingham’s seventh year as vice president of University Advancement, just a small chunk of her nearly 25-year career with the UA, which will end when she retires in January.

Bingham said she was chosen to fill the position from the 100-candidate pool a national search started when President Peter Likins revived the position in 1997.
