Although the state government
spared higher and K-12 education in
April from budget cuts for the 2002-
2003 fiscal year, both areas may not
receive the amount of funding they once
expected.
Government officials announced at a
conference last week that the state's gen-
eral fund has a $352 million deficit for
the current fiscal year in addition to a
deficit of $320 million for the coming
fiscal year which begins Oct. 1.
Because the state budget must be
balanced, cuts are possible in many
areas - including the $363.6 million
originally allocated to the University
for the 2002-2003 fiscal year.
"We have a constitutional obligation
to do so. We can't spend more money
than we take in," State Budget Office
spokeswoman Kelly Chesney said.

On tn the and

Promotions, lawsuit outcome
discussed at regents meeting

By Maria Sprow
Daily News Editor
Although the deadline for naming a new
University president is rapidly approaching -
the most recent estimation from the Universi-
ty Board of Regents is the announcement will
come in early July or earlier - the regent's
monthly meeting, held Thursday at the Uni-
versity's Dearborn campus, concentrated pri-
marily on faculty promotions and the decision
ruling in favor of the Law School's admis-
sions policies from the 6th Circuit Court of
Appeals.

The major focus of the meeting was approving
the tenure roster and new faculty appointments.
Several of the administrators present at the
meeting spoke of how important the appointment
process is to the University.
"There is nothing that we do that we take more
seriously.... The process is arduous, particularly
for those going through it," Interim Provost Paul
Courant said. "In every stage along the way, there
is discussion, there is back and forth. One of the
most important things faculty at the University of
Michigan do is figure out who should (join) the
faculty."
