Last month, the veterans group
also asked the state Legislature to
withhold the $320 million the Uni-
versity receives in state appropria-
tions until complied with the ADA's
standards for wheelchair accessi-
bility, but the Legislature didn't act
on the group's request.
The University Board of Regents
approved the schematic designs for
the stadium renovations in Novem-
ber. The regents must vote on the
project one more time before con-
struction begins. No date has been
set for the vote, which would offi-
cially allocate funds for the renova-
tion. The construction is slated for
completion in August 2010.

One of these is a push for more
endowed professorships, which
typically cost $2 million. The
University has pledged to add
$500,000 to any $1.5 million dona-
tion for an endowed professorship.
Malcolm said the campaign has
resulted in 10 new endowed pro-
fessorships since Oct. 21.
Because the University only
needs to receive half ofthe donation
before a professorship is awarded,
the professorship can be fulfilled
after it gets the first $500,000
installment from a donor coupled
with the University's contribution.
The University received its
largest gift in 2005 when Univer-
sity alum and real estate magnate
Stephen Ross gave a $100 million
donation, most of which went to
the Business School.

The University also tries to edu-
cate students about file sharing
before infractions occur.
Each semester, the University
hosts events about the dangers of
file sharing.
"We try to encourage students
to consider these issues from an
intellectual perspective," Bernard
said. "The idea is to help students
make thoughtful choices."
Bernard emphasized that stu-
dents need to learn about how to
deal with file sharing issues in
order to stop them.
He said threatening students
with lawsuits is not a long-term
solution to the problem.

know when to hold and when to fold.
(Your sense of timing is uncanny.) Give
yourself the time this year to study or
learn something important.
