UCA balances the books

Posted By on Sun, Sep 21, 2008 at 3:22 PM

Doug Smith of the Times reported this first a few weeks ago, but the Log Cabin has further details today on UCA's cut of scholarship spending to avoid deficit spending. Tuition scholarships, for example, are now fixed at the amount given the first year and don't automatically get indexed to tuition increases.

The books at UCA have been a bloody mess for several years. It is past time for the Board of Trustees to talk about the extent of their knowledge of this problem and to explain how they were going to pay big bonuses to the president in light of it. (We know, in the case of the first bonuses, they couldn't.)

A long awaited state audit may provide a sober big picture of the go-go years, arrested only under pressure from the state Higher Education Department.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
