Legislature must give the 0K;

Todd not sure it’s enough

BY TM Lyle
THE mmxmn

President Lee Todd lauded the Ken-
tucky Council on Postsecondary Educa-
tion for passing a budget Monday that
slated $193.1 million for higher education
— but he also said UK’s share of that still
might not be enough.

If the state legislature approves this
budget in its next session, which begins
Jan. 3. UK would receive a funding in-
crease of $27.35 million over the next two
fiscal years.

“The (council) was right to illustrate
the significant funding needs that higher
education has in Kentucky,” Todd said in
an email. “My fear is that we are under-
stating the financial challenge we face."

He said UK has made significant
strides in becoming a topZO research in-
stitution as mandated by the state in
House Bill 1 of 1997. such as an increase
in endowment from $200 million to $550
million, a nearly $1 billion capital cam-
paign, a $450 million hospital expansion
and the highest graduation rates in the

“We have made miles of progress, but
we have miles more to go before we reach
our goal," Todd said. “That means we
need to accelerate our efforts over the
next several years, and that will require a
larger infusion of resources than what is
being recommended currently by the

Sue Patrick, the council’s director of
communications, said the budget is a
road map to achieving the six goals out-
lined in House Bill 1, including UK be-
coming a topZO research institution and
the University of Louisville becoming a
premier metropolitan research universi-

Almost two months after UK al-

safety on campus, the university
has started creating a well-lit, mon-
itored walkway through campus
and hiring a new UK police officer,
among other initiatives.

The President's Women’s Safe

ing the funding to educate students
on safety, train personnel and
make structural changes on cam-
pus. which will include a recom-

night, called the CATS Path.

The pathway will run through-
out the main part of campus and
extend from the intersection of
Hilltop Avenue and Woodland Av~

Limestone Street near Dickey Hall.

Once completed, the path will
be well-lit, open and patrolled heav-

UK's head coach.

Some students had a harder time
during midterms than others. Many
of those students were in Math 109.

Students in the introductory col-
lege algebra course received an aver-
age grade of 55 percent on their sec-
ond exam on Oct. 19, and Avinash
Sathaye. director of undergraduate
studies for the math department, said
the average grade in the class dropped
an average of 12 points.

“I have been here for many years."
Sathaye said. “I’ve never seen any—
thing like it.”

Those test results are one reason
many students rushed to drop the
class by the Oct. 21 deadline — the Fri-
day of that week. Other students
worked with what they had. searching
for reasons for the poor test grades.

“I understand that it’s a college
course," said interior design fresh-
man Amanda
Vater. “I don‘t
know if Ididn’t ”It couldn't be

“It couldn’t
be just the Sm Amanda Vater
dents." interior design freshman,

Math 109 student in MA 109
has had a histo
ry of large
numbers of students withdrawing and
failing. The DEW rate — the percent-
age of students who received a D, E or
withdrew from the class — is an aver-
age of 41.5 percent since the fall se~
mester of 1998. It was highest in
spring 2000 at 51.6 percent. Last fall,
that rate dropped to 34.4 percent.

Sathaye said former Provost Mike
Nietzel encouraged the math depart-
ment to bring those DEW numbers
down last year, prompting the depart-
ment to institute changes for this
year’s incoming freshman.

“I think we’re trying to rectify
what’s going on, on our end," Sathaye

Sathaye said the math department
felt that incoming freshmen were not
prepared for college math, so the min-
imal ACT score to enter a calculus
class was raised. A placement exam
was also instituted to help get stu-
dents in the right level of math.

Math 109’s structure was changed
this year as well. The course was re
designed to better prepare students
for the higher-level math courses, and
all but five of the 47 classes are using
Internet homework for the first time.

Many students told Sathaye that
the format of the test didn’t match the
homework. He said he didn't dismiss

be; it’s impossible to say this is going
to make you safer. but we’ll sure try."

The council is hoping to have the
path available for student use by the
end of the semester. said Carol Jordan.
director of UK‘s Center for Research
on Violence Against Women.

‘This is just a first step ~ the ma-
jor artery for the path." she said.
adding that she wants students to sug-
gest additions and changes to the path.

President Lee Todd committed the
$1.25 million in ftmding more than
four times what UK spent last year to
promote women’s safety on campus
as a response to a UK study last year
on the safety of female students on
campus. Of the 1.010 undergraduate
and graduate females surveyed, 36.5
percent said they had experienced vic-
timization. including physical or sexu-
al assault. at UK.

In addition to the path. the Physi-
cal Plant Division began landscaping
alterations two months ago at
Keeneland Hall. Holmes Hall and Jew-
ell Hall. as well as Memorial Coliseum
and the Flag Plaza on Euclid Avenue.
Lighting is also being added to the Kir-
wan/Blanding Complex on South
Campus. and near ()vid's at the WT.
Young Library The landscaping. light-
ing and CATS Path are expected to
cost more than half a million dollars.

Part of the funding will also go to
ward hiring a new UK police officer.
While the new officer will not have
special duties regarding women's safe-
ty. he or she will help patrol campus.

“What we need is bodies on the
street to enforce law. be seen and inter-
act with students." Pranklin said.

UK Women‘s Place. which opened
in January. has also received part of
the funding over the last two months
to help hire a victim services coordina-
tor. Dorothy Edwards. the center‘s di-
rector. said she will finish interviews
for the new position tomorrow and ide
ally make a decision Friday.

“We are basically doubling our
staff. and that helps us makes sure the
quality of services is high." she said.

Women‘s Place also started a vic—
tim assistance fund. which will be
used to help victims who may need to
make housing changes. get food or
take care of other needs.

“We have people coming in to ask
us. ‘How can we help? How can we
work together?” Edwards said.

"The greatest benefit wasn't mone
tary; it was the strong. loud message
across campus that this is an issue at
UK." she said.

are very ambitious goals for
education and the state.

"We need them; we’re lag-

catch-up right now."

If the council‘s budget is
approved. UK will receive
funding increases of $13.72
million in the 200607 fiscal
year and $13.62 million in the
200708 fiscal year. Those in-
creases would be added to
state funding already allotted
by the General Assembly: that
number is $314.5 million for

lion increase is about 1 per-
cent less than what the coun-
cil planned for UofL. which is
