The Integrated Learning Center will be named after Manuel T. Pacheco, UA's 19th president, in a ceremony at the ILC tomorrow.

"We're not abandoning the phrase Integrated Learning Center, we're just naming the Integrated Learning Center after the president who was in office when the concept was developed," said UA President Peter Likins.

The concept for the ILC was developed during Pacheco's presidency, but was built during Likins' presidency and completed in 2001. It cost $26 million. [Read article]

Undeclared students can meet their majors at fair

Students who have not chosen a major will have the opportunity to get information on more than 80 majors and to have their questions and concerns answered by department representatives at the Meet Your Major Fair tomorrow.

The symposium will be held at the Student Union Memorial Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

photo Senate OKs elimination of health professions

Faculty Senate approved the proposed elimination of the School of Health Professions and Medical Technology Program yesterday, bringing them one step closer to complete termination.

The eliminations were originally proposed in fall 2003 in accordance with Focused Excellence, a UA initiative aiming to strengthen certain programs in order to narrow the focus of the university.

UA President Peter Likins proposed the elimination because the School of Health Professions is the only school at the UA that is not part of an existing college. [Read article]

photo Republicans protest Moore visit

The University of Arizona College Republicans are petitioning due to Michael Moore's scheduled appearance Oct. 11, which they say is unbalanced because of a lack of a conservative speaker of the same prominence.

Despite the fact that Moore's appearance will be paid for solely by ticket sales and not ASUA funds, the petition asks ASUA to sponsor a conservative speaker of equal name recognition. [Read article]
