Education requests
feedback on planned
teaching changes
By CECE ZHOU
Daily Staff Reporter
More than 100 members of the
University and Ann Arbor com-
munity gathered in the Michigan
League on Thursday night for a
public education forum held by
the State Board of Education to
encourage discussion about the
state of public education.
In response to recent educa-
tion reforms and budget cuts pro-
posed by Republican Gov. Rick
Snyder, including a ta-percent
cot to higher education, the SBE
planned an education forum series
to promote conversation about
education in the state. The Uni-
versity was one of multiple host-
ing sites for the symposium, along
with Grand Rapids, Clinton Town-
ship, Detroit and Mount Pleasant.
According to an address deliv-
ered by Snyder to the Michigan
Legislature on April 27, he plans to
reorganize the education system
to increase the quality of teacher
training, including instating a
requirement for more in-class
experience during their prepara-
tion. Additionally, he said he hopes
to shift the focus of education to
the quality of student learning and
test results.
Casandra Ulbrich, vice presi-
dent of the SBE, said the orga-

Regents approve
$13.7 million project
to accomodate new
research program
By KAITLIN WILLIAMS
Daily StaffReporter
The University's Board of
Regents unanimously approved
the creation of a new health
institute as part of the North
Campus Research Complex at
their monthly meeting on May

19, prompting a multi-million
dollar renovation project that
will provide space needed to
house the newly developed pro-
gram.
The Institute for Health-
care Policy and Innovation will
develop research initiatives
relating to health care and public
policy. In order to accommodate
for the collaborative workforce
of approximately 500 employees,
the University will embark upon
a $13.7 million construction
project of Building 16 within the
NCRC, which will be completed
by Spring 2012.

Timothy Slottow, the Uni-
versity's executive vice presi-
dent and chief financial officer,
moved the board to approve
the renovation project - which
will add spaces for large meet-
ings and a fitness center - con-
stituting an addition of 120,000
square feet to Building 16 of the
NCRC.
Slottow said the renova-
tions are necessary for arrang-
ing about a dozen health service
groups in the building. He told
the board this collective gather-
ing will be an "exciting" devel-
