FUNDING
From Page 1A
only administrators to testify
together. The presidents of Lake
Superior State University and
Eastern Michigan University also
addressed the committee yester-
day.
Michigan State University
President Lou Anna Simon began
the testimony by explaining how
the coalition puts the three uni-
versities in the "unique" position
to bolster the state's economy
through each university's indi-
vidual research and their collab-
orative efforts that allow them to
remain competitive with univer-
sities in other states.
Simon presented a report by
Anderson Economics Group and
paid for by the URC that mea-
sured the coalition's impact. The
report compared the URC to simi-
lar groups of universities in North

Carolina, Massachusetts, Califor-
nia, Texas, Illinois and Pennsyl-
vania.
The report found that the URC
has the largest combined student
enrollment. It also showed that
URC brought in federal funds for
60 percent of its research expen-
ditures. Those expenditures were
shown to be more effective in all
of the other coalitions except for
Massachusetts and Northern Cal-
ifornia.
Simon also presented a new
URC initiative that will pro-
vide $900,000 for collaborative
research on alternative energy
sources.
Wayne State University Presi-
dent Irvin Reid followed Simon's
remarks by outlining the plan for
the URC: encouraging collabora-
tion between the three universi-
ties, promoting interdisciplinary
research and increasing partner-
ships between the universities
and businesses.

Reid mentioned Ann Arbor
Spark, Lansing's Prima Civitas
and Detroit's TechTown as three
programs already in place that
work with the universities to help
create jobs.
University of Michigan Presi-
dent Mary Sue Coleman went on
to explain why increased funding
for higher education would help
universities increase financial aid
for needy students. The Univer-
sity of Michigan, Michigan State
University and Wayne State Uni-
versity all offer different financial
aid programs that often rely on
outside donors.
After Coleman's testimony,
Sen. Tom George (R-Kalamazoo)
questioned the URC's emphasis
on collaboration, asking why the
universities don't just merge to
form one large university. Reid
and Coleman explained that they
think the separate universities
will only be stronger by staying
separate and working through

collaboration because it will still
allow for competition between
them.
George went on to explain that
part of the problem in allocating
funds is that a large portion of the
state's budget goes toward health
care.
He asked Coleman specifically
if she would ever prohibit the hir-
ing of smokers, similar to a policy
a community college in Kalama-
zoo adopted.
Coleman said she would not
consider a policy prohibiting
smokers from working for the
University, but that there are poli-
cies restricting smokingin certain
areas on campus.
Sen. Bill Hardiman (R-Kent-
wood) echoed George's concerns
about health care costs. He said
there should be an effort to pro-
mote healthy lifestyles in order to
save money in the long run.
Coleman agreed.
"It's one of the biggest chal-

lenges the nation faces," she said.
She said the university has
programs in place to train medi-
cal students to prevent disease
instead of just focusing on treat-
ment.
Reid suggested cutting other
costs, like prisons. Sen. Liz Brater
(D-Ann Arbor) quickly agreed.
In an interview, Brater said
more money is being spent on
prison facilities than on higher
education. She said that needs to
change.
Brater asked the three univer-
sity presidents about what they're
planning to do now that the Mich-
igan Alternative Loan program
has been suspended.
Coleman said one possible solu-
tion is the replacement of student
loans with grants.
Brater said she is hopeful that
the URC will receive all of the
funding Granholm proposed.
"I think it's a very good collab-
orative effort," she said.

Stolen artwork
recovered
ZURICH, Switzerland (AP) -
Two Impressionist paintings stolen-
in one of Europe's largest art thefts.
have been recovered in an aban-<
doned car, police said yesterday.
The pictures byVincentvanGogh:
and Claude Monet were among four-
paintings worth $163 million that.
were stolen from a private museum
in a Feb.10 armed robbery.
The two other paintings taken
from the E.G. Buehrle Collection -
one by Edgar Degas and the other -
by Paul Cezanne - remain missing,
the commandant of the Zurich city"
police told reporters.
The recovered paintings - Mon-
et's "Poppy field at Vetheuil" and.
van Gogh's "Blooming Chestnut
Branches" - were discovered in
a parking lot in front of a Zurich
mental hospital on Monday.
