Beilein receives extension through 2018-19

Weekly Summer Edition Michigan Daily.com

By DANIEL FELDMAN
Daily Sports Writer
After leading the Michigan
men's basketball team to the
national championship game for
the first time since 1993, Michi-
gan Athletic Director Dave Bran-
don announced on Wednesday a
contract extension for coach John
Beilein through the 2018-2019
season.
Beilein led the Wolverines to
31 wins last season, tying the pro-
gram record, and bringing his all-
time winning percentage to .599
(673-403). He also produced two
first-round picks in this year's
NBA draft.
"I am very excited to have this
opportunity to coach at the Uni-
versity of Michigan for at least five
more years," said Beilein. "I am
grateful that President Coleman
and Dave Brandon are pleased
with the direction of our program
and have extended this offer of
agreement. My staff and I will
continue to work every day with

our student-athletes to ensure they
grow from this incredible educa-
tional opportunity.
"At the same time, competing
for Big Ten championship will be
the goal each and every year."
Beilein began in 2007, replac-
ing former coach Tommy Amaker,
after he led West Virginia to the
NIT tournament. The extension
is his second since the 2010-11 sea-
son when the Wolverines made it
to their first NCAA Tournament
since 1998.
Coming off a season that came
within a put-back of consecu-
tive Big Ten regular season titles,
Michigan will return a youth-filled
roster led by sophomore forwards
Glenn Robinson III and Mitch
McGary. With only one senior on
the team in forward Jordan Mor-
gan, it will be a responsibility once
again for Beilein to mold and shape
the young squad.
The Wolverines maintained a
top-10 ranking in the Associated
Press poll for the entire 2012-13
season - highlighted by holding the

sador of the University of Michi-
gan and one of the most highly
respected coaches in the country,"

said Brandon. "He recruits out-
standing young men to represent
the men's basketball program and
develops them as players, students
and future leaders. John has built
a program that will compete for
Big Ten championships on a regu-

lar basis and make exciting NCAA
Tournament runs."
"We look forward to John,
Kathleen and the entire Beilein

of Michigan for the foreseeable

Wards
vied for
in Dem.
primary
Grand, Eaton look
to unseat City
Council incumbents
By TUI RADEMAKER
Daily News Editor
In a 90 percent Democratic
Ann Arbor City Council, two of
the five represented wards will
be contested in the August 6th
primary.
Julie Grand, who currently
serves as the chair of the city's
Parks Advisory Commission,
is challenging incumbent Ste-
phen Kunselman (D-Ward 3).
Jack Eaton, a longtime neigh-
hvorhood activist and laboir
attorney, is seeking to unseat
Marcia Higgins (D-Ward 4).
While Grand said she has
been focusing her efforts on
personally connecting with
voters by knocking on doors,
Kunselman said he is relying
on the strength of his record
on City Council to carry him
through the primary.
Kunselman was first elected
to the council in 2006 and has
held his seat since, apart from
one year in 2008. He said his
defeat resulted from distancing
himself from Mayor John
Hieftje and his supporters.
"(Wanting to be a better com-
municator is) how I distinguish
myself from my opponent,"
Grand said. "I know that my
opponent hasn't made really
thoughtful decisions on council
- he's just been very divisive ...
If you're really listening to your
constituents then you have a bet-
ter idea of what the real issues are
in the ward."

Undocumented
students could have
access to in-state rate
By AARON GUGGENHEIM
ManagingNews Editor
Eight students were arrested
in front of the Michigan Union
this past April for blocking traffic.
Fifty crowded the April meeting of
the University's Board of Regents
wearing bright maize shirts.
These students - organized by
the Coalition for Tuition Equality
- gathered time and again to
advocate for in-state tuition for
undocumented students.
After almost a year of activity,
and the convening of a joint
task force of administrators and
students, University President
Mary Sue Coleman's promise of
a "positive recommendation" for

tuition equality will be presented
before the Regents at their
meeting Thursday.
University Provost Martha
Pollack, in communication
with the regents, has proposed
simplified residency guidelines
that will specify three pathways
for attaining in-state residency
status: being a Michigan resident,
service in the U.S. military or
attending Michigan middle or
high schools.
"Students who are not legal
residents of the state of Michigan
or of the United States may
qualify for in-state tuition under
this school-attendance-based
approach," Pollack said.
Students who qualify for the
attendance-based approach
would be those who attended
Michigan middle school for two
years followed by three years of
attendance at and graduation
from a Michigan high school.

These students would also need
to start their University education
within 28 months of graduation
from high school.
These changes to determining
residency, the first review of this
policy since 2005, will be imple-
mented by January 2014. How-
ever, this will still not change the
ability for undocumented students
to receive federal financial aid.
University spokesperson Rick
Fitzgerald said the University
decided to implement the
policy in January, rather than
in September for fall semester,
because it gives University staff
enough time to make sure "all of
the details have been adequately
worked through."
Pollack said in a University
press release that the changes
provided a simpler path for those
seeking to qualify for in-state
tuition.
