The new ASUA club Aspiring Women Professionals hosted a panel called “Women in Business” on Monday evening in the Student Union Memorial Center, where Eller College of Management graduates discussed how they achieved their goals. Aspiring Women Professionals was started by communication senior Chloé Cavelier d’Esclavelles and business administration senior Cassandra Ott so women could have a place to come together and learn from professionals in the field. Ott said one of her main reasons for starting the club was because of the inequalities she saw in the workplace. “It was horrifying to see women making less money,” Ott said. “Women were promoted based on things they had already accomplished and men were promoted based on their potential.” Cavelier d’Esclavelles and Ott plan on bringing in speakers from the community once a month.

The food truck concept was created last August as a response to the recent national trend of food trucks, as well as the genuine interest that the UA community has shown, according to Jason Tolliver, director of Arizona Student Unions. Not only is it a fresh concept to campus, Tolliver said, but it will also assist the student unions in serving other parts of the campus community, due to its ability to move from location to location. The unions are hoping to engage the truck in campus events throughout the year. The food truck is a studentdeveloped concept, just like other additions to the student unions, including Sabor, IQ Fresh and Core. This idea was approached in the same way, and is designed specifically to engage students, Tolliver said. “We talked with the students in Dr. Jackson Boelts’ art class about creating potential concepts for the food truck,” Tolliver said. “We’ve narrowed it down to three, which are now GRACE PIERSON/THE DAILY WILDCAT LISA STAGE, a marketing specialist at University Information Technology Services, votes for one of the proposed food truck concepts at the Student Union Memorial Center food court Monday afternoon. down in the food court at the union, to get students’ feedback on what they think about the concept.” Tolliver said there is a voting booth set up in the Student Union Memorial Center that will allow students to provide their opinions. The voting booth will be in the union until the end of next week. There will not be a specific menu for the food truck, Tolliver said. Instead, the menu will go through different rotations based on student demand for specific foods. Robert Nelson , a global studies sophomore, said he eats on campus twice a day and would definitely make use of the food truck as long as it accepted CatCard money as a form of payment.

Kaloni Philipp, a physiology SAVANNAH DOUGLAS/THE DAILY WILDCAT PRESIDENT ANN WEAVER HART SPEAKS about the executive budget proposal at the faculty senate meeting on Monday. Hart is working with Gov. Brewer and other university presidents to push for more higher education funding. Arizona’s executive budget proposal to fund a private, non-profit research organization through the UA is a “bridge to nowhere,” UA President Ann Weaver Hart said at yesterday’s Faculty Senate meeting. The proposal suggests $15 million be allocated to the UA to be disbursed over five years to the Translational Genomics Research Institute, or TGen, an independent institute that specializes in medical research. “It isn’t funding for the U of A, but it leaves the impression that it is,” Hart said. “Not one nickel of those dollars has any impact on how the university fulfills its mission. … It’s literally a passthrough.” The money would only benefit UA faculty members who might be working on research projects with TGen, not the university as a whole, Hart said. The UA’s funding request presented to the Arizona Board of Regents last semester included $15 million for mission-specific funding, which refers to hiring faculty and supporting biomedical research, among other projects. Hart reported to the Faculty Senate that Arizona’s three state university presidents and members of the board of regents will continue to push for the original $700 million recommendation for higher education funding. Hart said her colleagues, especially president of Arizona State University Michael Crow, agreed that the UA can’t be excluded from the funding proposal. “We’re not whining,” Hart said. “We’re talking about the future of the state and the future of the citizens of our nation … and that’s the approach we’re taking.” Hart said that the governor’s budget focused on the recent scandal surrounding Arizona’s FACULTY SENATE, 3
