Regents anticipate approval of 301 budget plans today

Discussions on TA fee waivers a 'huge step'

Members of the Arizona Board of Regents say they are enthusiastic about UA's budget plans for Proposition 301 funds and anticipate approval at today's meeting.

"(The plans are) very pleasing to everyone at this point," said Mary Echeverria, a student regent and economics senior from Arizona State University. "I'm very impressed with the mechanisms."

UA President Peter Likins and UA Provost George Davis, along with representatives from ASU and Northern Arizona University, first approached the regents at their meeting in January with plans for how to distribute the $459 million from the voter-approved Prop. 301. The proposition increased Arizona's sales tax by 0.6 percent to benefit public education.

"I am thrilled with the quality of the proposals and also the degree of cooperation and collaboration between the university provosts, the central office, and the entire Arizona university system," said regent Jack Jewett.

One of these proposals, UA's Technology and Research Incentive Funding request, will have an emphasis on optics, biomedical science, biotechnology and water research.

Wildcat bench muscles past Beavers, 65-54

Walton leads UA with 16 points, 4 assists

At this point in the season, Arizona will take a win any way they can get it.

If the slash in the win column comes after two starters are held without a field goal while the bench players dictate the tempo, so be it.

The Wildcats defeated Oregon State 65-54 last night behind the performance of the least likely of players.

University should offer need-based, not blanket, tuition waivers

The Arizona Board of Regents is set to discuss a proposal today which would partially - if not completely - eliminate tuition fees for all Arizona graduate teaching assistants.

True, the state may not be properly equipped to dole out full tuition waivers to every TA in Arizona, but need-based financial compensation for TAs needs to be implemented. After all, it already exists at 19 other educational institutions such as Stanford and Harvard.

Jumping-off point

Student-run gallery showcases 'departure' from pair of UA artists

For the casual visitor, the works on display in "Headfirst and Luminous," the latest show opening tonight at student-run gallery Carbonbase, may not seem out of the ordinary.

But for those who know the artists - Albert Chamillard, a fine arts junior and gallery co-owner, and Josh Hagler, graphic design junior and Wildcat illustrations editor - the exhibition could scarcely be more radical, said Megan Asker, a Carbonbase co-owner.
