Regents to review
president's letter
to state budget
director
By KAITLIN WILLIAMS
Daily StaffReporter
University administrators are
sending a clear message to state
officials: the University of Michi-
gan is important, and it needs to
be properly funded.
The University's fiscal year
2013 budget development letter
was released to the University's
Board of Regents in a communi-
cation yesterday._At the regents'
monthly meeting on Thursday,
they will vote on whether to send
the letter to John Nixon, director
of the State Budget Office. In the
letter, University President Mary
Sue Coleman questioned the new
funding model proposed by the
state - known as formula fund-
ing - and claimed that the model
poses "a new array of challenges"
for the University.
In the letter, Coleman sug-

gested that the state should focus
on measuring the University's
performance when employing
formula funding - a system
in which state appropriations
would be determined based on
universities' fulfillment of cer-
tain criteria, including gradu-
ation and freshman retention
rates.
"The objective of formula
funding should be to allocate
funding based on the value that
each university brings to the
state, so that the formula pro-
vides financial incentive for each
university to maximize that
value," Coleman wrote.
Coleman argued that the new
model ignores the unique mis-
sion of the University and may
cause the state to cut more fund-
ing. She cited the University's
educational programs and stu-
dent body of more than 27,000
undergraduates and 15,000 grad-
uate students as well as the Uni-
versity's $1.24 billion research
expenditures in fiscal year 2011
as reasons to reconsider compar-
ing itsvalue to other state univer-
sities.

necessary to create a nation
where justice prevails. She

MICHIGAN STUDENT ASSEMBLY

MSA seeks to fill rep. vacancies in election of international students

Only one Rackham
student running
with 10 open seats
By GIACOMO BOLOGNA
Daily StaffReporter
With the polls for Michi-
gan Student Assembly elec-
tions open tonight at midnight,
assembly members say they
hope to fill current vacancies in
the student government.

The vacant seats this semes-
ter have resulted from repre-
sentatives from several schools
and colleges not being elected,
resigning or being dismissed
because of multiple absences
from MSA meetings. However,
of the three schools that did
not elect MSA representatives
in March - the School of Nat-
ural Resources and the Envi-
ronment, Medical School and
School of Social Work - only
the School of Social Work has a
candidate running in the elec-

tion.
Additionally, until three
weeks ago, Rackham Gradu-
ate School had not been repre-
sented at an assembly meeting
this semester. Since then, two
Rackham representatives have
attended the two most recent
meetings.
MSA President DeAndree
Watson said the assembly is
reaching out to organizations
like the Graduate Employees'
Organization to foster a bet-
