EQUALITY
From Page 3C
University's chapter of Student
Veterans of America, said after
all the sacrifices made by vet-
erans in Iraq and Afghanistan,
they deserved to not have to go
through the hurdle of proving
their residency
to receive in-state tuition.
"(That policy was) disap-
pointing to a lot of veterans and
it means a lot to us that this pol-
icy is being reviewed," Simister
said.
Simister said the next gener-
ation of political leaders could
come from those who served in
the armed forces and would like
those leaders to come "with the
Michigan difference."
In an interview after the
meeting, Newman said she
did not support the measure
because it she did not feel it was
within the jurisdiction of the
University to make immigra-
tion policy.
"(I have questions) about
whether this is appropriate
under federal law and believe
this type of national issue
should be resolved at the federal
level," Newman said. "Although
I am supportive of the expan-
sion of in-state tuition for vet-
erans who have served our
nation."
Bernstein said in an inter-
view after the meeting that he
was satisfied with the policy
passed and that this was the
first step to reducing barriers

for undocumented students.
"There is a lot of work to be
done but this was a step to be
taken before any others occur,"
Bernstein said.
While a form of tuition
equality has passed at the Uni-
versity level, other higher edu-
cation institutions across the
state have yet to extend in-state
tuition to undocumented stu-
dents.
In April, Rep. Jeff Irwin
(D-Ann Arbor) introduced a
bill in the Michigan state leg-
islature that would introduce
tuition equality across the
state. However, Irwin said he
might expect a vote to play out
along party lines, as in this
afternoon's decision where
both Republicans provided the
only dissent.
While Richner and Fischer
Newman cited concerns regard-
ing the legality of the Regent's
action, Irwin said the Regents
acted within the University's
autonomous status as granted
by the state constitution.
As an elected board, Irwin
said the Regents have full juris-
diction in making the decision.
Still, Irwin hasn't ruled out the
possibility of a court challenge
against the new guidelines. But
even with potential obstacles,
Irwin predicts the leadership
of most Michigan colleges will
look at the University's decision
and arrive at the same conclu-
sion.
Though Irwin said he lauded
the University administration's
efforts in thoughtfully consid-
ering the issue, policymakers

must still work towards more
widespread policies at a state
and federal level.
LSA sophomore Dan
Morales, spokesperson for
CTE, said he was happy a mea-
sure was passed, but that it
wasn't as inclusive as he would
have liked, citing the lack of a
promise for financial support
for undocumented students and
the strict guidelines on having
to attend to both a Michigan
high school and middle school.
"We want to make sure the
University will meet the full
need of undocumented students
as well," he said.
Morales added that one ave-
nue to achieving this would be
through establishing a schol-
arship in the upcoming capital
campaign.
In regards to possible legal
challenges to the policy,
Morales said he was certain the
University would stand behind
its policy.
"There are some legal hur-
dles ... but I am confident that
the University will go up to bat
on this issue as they have on
previous issues like affirmative
action," Morales said.
He said CTE would con-
tinue in the fall to work with
the administrators to expand
access to higher education.
"In-state tuition is only one
step to creating truly equal
access to higher education for
these students."

PROVOST
From Page 6C
to the careful planning by Han-
lon, but that serious budget issues
would continue to be a main issue
for the nextprovost.
"Many of the (challenges) are
going to be continuations of the
ones he had to deal with. Many of
them are of course financial," Pol-
lack said. "There's been a serious
decline in state support for public
education, and we'll have to come
to gripswiththat."
"We're going to continue to
work hard ... but the fundamental
(budget) model is sound."
Pollack will receive a salary of
$450,000 - less than Hanlon's
$509,000 - according to Univer-
sity spokesman Rick Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald added that there was
no search committee formed to
hire a new Provost, but Coleman
consulted various people across
campus while making her deci-
sion. s
"I consulted with a lot of people

around the institution because
obviously anybody takingthat role
you want to make sure that they
are establishinggood relationships
- thatthey are clear,that theytake
advice - and all those things come
together," Coleman said Wednes-
day.
In an interview in December,
Hanlon predicted the University
would choose atalented successor.
"Ithink we'llget someone really
terrific in the job, someone really
skilled," Hanlon said. "They'll
know exactly what they're doing,
I'msure."
Hanlon also granted some
advice, stressingthe importance of
facilitating the vast resources the
University offers.
"We have terrific students, and
we have terrific faculty and we've
got the human resources talent to
beat any place," Hanlon said. "It's
really a question of opportunity to
take all thisbrainpowerandtalent
and really take this place to per-
form at aneven higher level than it
has been."

TRADING

owner, is implicated in the
scheme.
The SEC alleged that Mar-
toma collaborated with CR
Intrinsic's portfolio manag-
er, known as "Portfolio Man-
ager A," who is identified as
the founder and owner of
"Investment Adviser A" --a
firm which is also alleged
to have benefited from the
scheme - and CR Intrin-
sic. The Wall Street Journal
reported that people close to
the investigation have iden-
tified Cohen as "Portfolio
Manager A."
Officials at SAC Capital
Advisors told investors in a
conference call Wednesday
the company may face civil
charges for its alleged role
in the scheme, though the
company denies the charges.
The SEC reportedly sent the
company a Wells notice, a
document which implicates
that the SEC is preparing a
potential suit.
