After 21-percent drop in
2009, endowment climbs back
$600M to $6.6 billion in 2010
By KYLE SWANSON
Daily News Editor
After a severe 21-percent drop in its value
last year, University officials announced yester-
day afternoon that the University's endowment
rebounded somewhat in the pastyear,growing12.3
percent.
The growth, from $6 billion to $6.6 billion as of
June 30, 2010, begins the recovery from last year's
$1.6 billion loss. However, the figure leaves much
more to gain back before the University's long-term
portfolio is back to its 2008 level when the endow-
ment reached an all-time high of more than $7.6
billion.
The return is higher than was expected by Uni-
versity officials like Tim Slottow, the University's
executive vice president and chief financial officer,
who told the regents in June that he was predicting
an 11.5-percent return on the endowment invest-

man a 3-percent salary increase.
The raise took effect Aug. 30,
2010. Coleman's previous base
salary was $553,500, while her
total compensation package was
$783,850. The 3-percent raise will
result in a $16,605 increase in Cole-
man's base salary, bringing it to
$570,105.
Aside from her base salary, Cole-
man received a $100,000 retention
bonus, $75,000 in deferred compen-
sation, $24,500 in retirement pay
and $30,850 in supplemental retire-
ment pay in 2009.

she is given a car and is provided full

raise in 2008, but requested in 2009
that the regents not give her a merit-
basedsalaryincrease.In2007,Cole-
man received a 3-percent raise, but
decided to donate the money back to
the University.
According to data published by

tion last January, Coleman was the
sixth-highest paid university presi-
dent in the country in 2009.
The Board of Regents Person-
nel, Compensation and Governance

mance review before awarding this
year's salary raise.

Park) read the regents' recommen-
dation for the raise. Speaking on
behalf of the regents, Richner said

market trends supported the deci-
sion to award the raise.

addition to extending our personal
gratitude for a job well done, is rec-
ommending a 3-percent increase in

By SUZANNE JACOBS
Daily StaffReporter
Sujal Parikh, a fourth-year
student at the University's Medi-
cal School, passed away Tuesday
night in Kampala, Uganda after
being injured in a motorcycle
accident.
Parikh was researching pedi-

atric HIV and AIDS at the Joint
Clinical Research Centre in Kam-
pala as a Fogarty International
Clinical Research Scholar.
Elizabeth Petty, associate dean
of the University's Office of Medi-
cal Student Education, said in a
phone interview that Parikh was
a "very inspirational, visionary
young man who was incredibly
humble and incredibly generous
with his time."
Petty wrote in an e-mail inter-
view that Parikh "will be dearly
missed" by the medical school
community.

"Sujal was such an exceptional
human being - a true humanitar-
ian," Petty wrote. "He was tire-
less and selfless in his passionate
efforts to address social injustice
and health disparities globally. He
touched us all so profoundly with
his insightful words, visionary
thoughts and generous actions."
Petty wrote that Parikh had
a passion for social justice and
international health, which could
be seen in the variety of organiza-
tions he participated in. Parikh
partook in the Student Advisory
Board for Physicians for Human

Rights, the Student Advisory
Committee for the Global Health
Education Consortium and the
American Medical Student Asso-
ciation's AIDS Advocacy Network
Steering Committee.
Originally from Dallas, Texas,
Parikh got his undergraduate
degree in public health and neu-
robiology at the University of
California, Berkeley. He came to
the University in 2007 for his first
year of medical school.
