PhD fellowships funded Mellon, UNM funds will support 20 Latino, Native doctoral candidates by Chloe Henson @ChloeHenson5 A national foundation has awarded UNM $800,000 to help some graduate students complete their dissertations. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded the five-year grant to UNM in order to fund 20 dissertation completion fellowships. UNM Professor Adriana Ramirez de Arellano, a principal investigator for the grant, said the grant is intended to increase scholarship among Latino and Native American populations by increasing doctoral degrees for graduate students who would continue on to be hired by universities nationwide.

“It increases the success of our students,” she said. “But the larger goal is to, on a national level, increase the number of people teaching at other universities in areas that are of importance to Latino populations and Native American populations.” According to a press release in UNM Today, the grant will apply to 10 departments, including anthropology, communications and journalism and sociology. The Graduate Research Center, the Office of Graduate Students, the Dean of Graduate Studies, the Provost’s Office, the College of Arts and Sciences and the Office for Equity and Inclusion will add $400,000 to the grant, Ramirez de Arellano said. She said UNM received the grant on the condition that the University would also contribute.

“It makes sense for a foundation such as Andrew W. Mellon to require evidence that, if they are willing to invest in the university, that the university is also willing to invest in this program,” she said. According to the foundation’s website, Andrew W. Mellon is a not-for-profit corporation that gives grants to program areas in the arts, higher education and scholarly communications and information technology. Distinguished Professor Michael Graves, another principal investigator, said beginning in the fall, UNM will fund five dissertations a year for the next four years. “We’ve already done a process of awarding 3 1/2 fellowships that run from January through August,” he said. “But then

anything useful.” Associate Provost Greg Heileman said students go by the catalog requirements that are in place at the time of enrollment. He said if the program they are enrolled in decides to decrease their requirements to 120 credit hours, then the students can go to their advisors to request those catalog standards. “Basically what this does, is it says any baccalaureate degree at UNM has the option of reducing their credit hours from 128 to 120 if they choose to do so,” he said. “And if they do, a student who comes in… can switch over to a new program as soon as it’s approved.” Heileman said the 128 credit hour requirement was only stipulated in the catalog. He said the Board of Regents and the University President didn’t need to approve the proposal. “This is a change to existing policy that

went up to the Faculty Senate,” he said. The senate also decided to decrease the minimum credit hour requirements because most other universities require 120, Holder said. He said students take more courses than necessary to graduate, and lowering the required number of credit hours could help with the graduation rate. “A typical student, to graduate, takes about 165 hours here, even though 128 were required until last month,” he said. “So, by dropping that down a little bit, maybe people will graduate a little faster, and maybe the graduation rate will go up a little bit.” Holder said he believes only one or two faculty senators were in opposition to the proposal. Heileman said in an email sent to the Daily Lobo that the University was only

Minimum hours cut to 120 by Chloe Henson @ChloeHenson5

Undergraduates will now need to take fewer credit hours in order to graduate. The UNM Faculty Senate cut the minimum number of credit hours required to graduate from 128 to 120 at a meeting at the end of last month. Faculty Senate President Richard Holder said the final vote to approve the decrease will go into effect right away. He said the senate decided to pass the proposal because it would make more sense for students trying to graduate on time. “We had 128, which doesn’t make any mathematical sense,” he said. “If you think that people should graduate in eight semesters, eight into 128 doesn’t give you

Starting Thursday, some UNM students may be able to ditch the instant ramen diet at least once a month. The University has cooperated with the Roadrunner Food Bank to launch the Lobo Food Pantry, a mobile food warehouse that would provide free healthy food to UNM students monthly. The program will kick off Thursday afternoon in the northeast parking lot of the UNM Football Stadium. Lisa Lindquist, student affairs specialist at the Dean of Students Office, said her office and Student Affairs worked with the food bank to launch the program. Lindquist said that the University initially planned to establish a permanent student food pantry on campus. “The Roadrunner Food Bank is a primary advocate to getting food out to the community,” she said. “Originally, when we started looking into doing this for the community, we wanted to have a free-standing food bank on campus. But we realized quickly that we don’t have the space for anything like that. And there are so many food safety requirements for us to do that.” The office plans to hold the event every third Thursday of the month, Lindquist said. Students will have to provide their student banner ID and fill out a short questionnaire to access a ration of food, Lindquist said. She said the pantry will give away 150 rations in a first-come, first-served basis at the kick-off event. Lindquist said the event will be of critical help to students, especially with the current state of the economy and of the University’s financial aid funds. “There’s that myth of the starving student that everyone knows about, but the reality is a lot of our students don’t have enough food,” she said. “That’s the case for a majority of our students particularly because financial aid is being cut back and scholarships aren’t as prevalent as they used to be… People are really having to tighten their belts.” Kim Kloeppel, fiscal and planning officer at Student Affairs, said the University started planning the program more than two years ago in the model of similar programs in other universities. She said the University finally followed through with its plans this year after a lot of research. Kloeppel said the program will give students more access to healthy food. She said rations would include various meats, bread and fresh fruit. “I think a lot of students are on such a tight budget that they don’t always eat well,” she said. “This is an opportunity to provide food for students who might need that extra help with their nutrition and their diet.” The program would also help improve students’ academic success, Kloeppel said. “A lot of times, a lot of students don’t eat, or they eat ramen noodles or things like that, that aren’t very healthy,” she said. “Their energy level is low. So, I think that if they eat better and healthier, then it gives them the energy to study more and be more successful in their academic areas.” Kloeppel said Students Affairs would provide $500 from its budget every month to fund the program. She said the department is willing to increase the number of rations in the future if student demand amounts more than expected. At the moment, UNM plans to run the program for six months, Kloeppel said. But she said the University would strive to extend the program for as long as possible. “We’d like to continue with it,” she said. “I hope students appreciate it and utilize it and get their food.”

we go on through a yearly academic schedule, and we’ll be sending out the call for applications for that within the next two weeks. And those will be for the first five fellowships for 2014 through 2015, and those are one- or two-year fellowships.” Ramirez de Arellano said the grant will be used to fund dissertation completion fellowships for graduate students who have already gathered their data and need to write up their dissertations. “We are not trying to help somebody who is still in those very early stages,” she said. “Rather, we want to intervene and help out.” The funding for the dissertation is intended to help students focus primarily on the dissertation without having to worry about economic needs, Ramirez de Arellano said. “Our fellowship allows them to concentrate fully on writing their research,” she said. Ramirez de Arellano said UNM had received the Andrew W. Mellon grant before and exceeded expectations the previous time. “We originally aimed to produce 20 Ph.D.s,” she said. “And we ended up giving 23 fellowships.”

Ramirez de Arellano said the foundation was very satisfied with the results and decided to invest in the University a second time. Graves said the University previously got the money for the extra three fellowships from various other sources, including savings from the University cost share, earnings from interest and a partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. “We squeezed money for three more fellowships and the funding we already had for 20 fellowships,” he said. “Mellon likes that.” Graves said Mellon Foundation officials are coming out to UNM in April because of interest in starting an undergraduate fellowship program. “They would fund up to 10 undergraduates,” he said. “The funding for undergraduates would be focused on their developing research and also preparing them for graduate or professional school.” Ramirez de Arellano said she is glad to work on such a prestigious project with partners who understand its importance. “It’s great to be part of something that does make a difference,” she said.

Kiev cops, protesters clash by Maria Danilova

KIEV, Ukraine — Amid cries of “Glory to Ukraine!” and with flaming tires lighting up the night sky, thousands of riot police armed with stun grenades and water cannons attacked the sprawling protest camp in the center of Kiev on Tuesday, following a day of street battles that left 18 people dead and hundreds injured. The violence was the deadliest in nearly three months of anti-government protests that have paralyzed Ukraine’s capital in a struggle over the nation’s identity, and the worst in the country’s post-Soviet history With the boom of exploding stun grenades and fireworks nearly drowning out his words at times, opposition leader Vitali Klitschko urged the 20,000 protesters to defend the camp on Independence Square that has been the heart of the protests. “We will not go anywhere from here,” Klitschko told the crowd, speaking from a stage in the square as tents and tires burned around him, releasing huge plumes of smoke. “This is an island of freedom and we will defend it,” he said. Many heeded his call. “This looks like a war against one’s own people,” said Dmytro Shulko, 35, who was heading toward the camp armed with a fire bomb. “But we will defend ourselves.” As police dismantled some of the barricades on the perimeter of the square and tried to push away the protesters, they fought back with rocks, bats and fire bombs. Against

the backdrop of a soaring monument to Ukraine’s independence, protesters fed the burning flames with tires, creating walls of fire to prevent police from advancing. A large building the protesters had used as a headquarters caught fire and many struggled to get out. Many of the protesters were bleeding. Speaking over loudspeakers, police urged women and children to leave the square because an “anti-terrorist” operation was underway. The protesters appeared to sense that Ukraine’s political standoff was reaching a critical turning point. Waving Ukrainian and opposition party flags, they shouted “Glory to Ukraine!” and sang the Ukrainian national anthem. Shortly before midnight, Klitschko headed to President Viktor Yanukovych’s office to try to resolve the crisis, his spokeswoman said. An hour later, he was still waiting to be received. Earlier in the day, protesters attacked police lines and set fires outside parliament, accusing Yanukovych of once again ignoring their demands and dragging his feet on a constitutional reform to limit presidential powers. Tensions had soared after Russia said Monday that it was ready to resume providing the loans that Yanukovych’s government needs to keep Ukraine’s ailing economy afloat. This raised fears among the opposition that Yanukovych had made a deal with Moscow to stand firm against the protesters and would choose a Russian-leaning loyalist to

be his new prime minister. The protests began in late November after Yanukovych turned away from a long-anticipated deal with the European Union in exchange for a $15 billion bailout from Russia. The political maneuvering continued, however, with both Moscow and the West eager to gain influence over this former Soviet republic. The government and the opposition had appeared to be making some progress toward resolving the political crisis peacefully. In exchange for the release of scores of jailed activists, protesters on Sunday vacated a government building that they had occupied since Dec. 1. Russia also may have wanted to see Kiev remain calm through the Winter Olympics in Sochi, so as not to distract from President Vladimir Putin’s games. But after the outburst of violence against riot police, Yanukovych’s government may have felt it had no choice but to try to restore order. While Kiev and western Ukraine have risen up against Yanukovych, he remains popular in the Russian-speaking eastern and southern regions. “We see that this regime again has begun shooting people; they want to sink Ukraine in blood. We will not give in to a single provocation,” opposition leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk told the protesters. “We will not take one step back from this square. We have nowhere to retreat to. Ukraine is behind us, Ukraine’s future is behind us.”

concerned the potential decrease in program quality resulting from the credit-hour requirement decrease. He said programs would not have to remove hours if it would be detrimental to them. “This proposal only lowers the minimum — no program will be required to remove credit hours from their curriculum if they believe that action would do harm,” he said. “That said, for virtually any degree program, there are high-quality examples in other states where the curriculum requires only 120 credit hours.” Programs across the University are creating their own 120-hour plans in response to this change, Heileman said.

“University College is very close to creating the first 120 credit hour degrees at UNM,” he said. “Specifically, their Bachelor’s of Liberal Arts and Bachelor’s of Integrative Studies programs are close to receiving final approval for the 120-credit-hour degree programs they have proposed.” Heileman said the decrease in credit hours required could have a positive impact on students financially. “Most importantly this will help students, as a more timely path to graduation will allow them to graduate sooner and thus assume less student loan debt,” he said. “With the problem of Lottery Scholarship solvency, the amount of scholarship

money available to students, relative to the total cost of education, is likely to decrease. So, anything we can do to expedite timely graduation will benefit our students in terms of accumulating less student loan debt.”  Holder said he thinks this new requirement will force departments to re-evaluate their programs to figure out how many courses they really need. But some programs might still require more than 120 hours. “Some programs will need more than 120,” he said. “I think we knew that going in. And they’re still free to do that. But I think some others could probably get down to 120 pretty easily.”

The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Opinion Editor/ John Tyczkowski/ @JCTyczkowski

Letters Generalizations of Israel betray writer’s inexperience Editor, I am a UNM undergrad writing in response to Don Schrader’s letter in Tuesday’s Daily Lobo. While we all, Schrader included, are entitled to our own opinions, no one is entitled to his or her own facts. As a medic in an armor unit of the Israeli army, I served in East Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Golan Heights and along the Gaza border. As such, I can unequivocally avow that the scenario Schrader depicts — of daily and even hourly snuff-film style atrocities being perpetrated en masse by Jews against Arabs — is regurgitation of febrile black propaganda. Since Schrader doubtlessly believes what he repeats, I won’t impugn his integrity, though he is certainly guilty of rather shrill hyperbole. That the extra-legal, martial subjugation of one ethnic group by another entails heavyhandedness and abuse, and even periodic, often mortal injury to innocents is undeniable. The state of Israel has many noble accomplishments to its credit, as well as many black deeds. Likewise, various Arab political actors have noble aspirations and achievements to their credit, as well as inhuman crimes. But cultural attributes, when involved in good or evil actions, are mere aesthetic flourishes. The fact that we can speak of “good” or “bad” Jews, Arabs, Catholics, WASPs, Germans, Serbs, Koreans, etc. is testimony to the universality of certain behaviors, not a racial or cultural explanation for them. Therefore I stringently object to Schrader’s parroting of the term that is so en vogue in recent Israel-Palestine discourse: “Jews of conscience.” It sets up a false dichotomy of “good” Jews and “bad” ones and particularizes the essentially universal behavior that is being objected to. It is a thoroughly racist

construction that arises, ironically, from the sanctimonious bosom of the supposedly humanist left-wing, and should be discarded. My support or opposition to any given Israeli policy doesn’t make me any less “conscientious” than Schrader or anyone else, Jew or Gentile. But if it evinces misguidedness or even callousness, then my ethnicity need not enter into the discourse in a way that’s intended to compel me to justify myself in terms of that ethnicity. As far as I, a supporter of Israel, am concerned, all are welcome to speak out in favor of one state, two states or none between the river Jordan and the Mediterranean. I begrudge no one their perspective. But lets stick to facts, and lets dispense with racist innuendo, however well-intended. Aaron Cress UNM student

The life of our colossus will be born of papier-mâché Editor, Like Moses — like Paul Revere — like an enormous friend waving happily in the distance, I have served the people of UNM — like a prophet, you might say — a messenger, a voice of hope and good cheer in these, our times of trial and confusion. Once, in a letter to this very student newspaper, I warned everyone of the dangers of bronze wolf statues. On another occasion I warned you, and your compatriots and subsidiaries of the dangers of gangs and gang colors. Perhaps at great risk to my physical self, I warned the world — I spoke up — and for that, a lot of people, I bet, now consider me a hero, probably. “He’s a real hero, that guy,” I assume people say, wiping away tears while looking at a little picture of me. “Remember how he warned us about those statues?” But, you know, it’s cool. Really, I’m just doing my job. I mean, me? A hero? No. A hero. No. A hero?! Wow. A hero. Maybe I am. I guess

I really am. A hero. Me. A hero. Wow. Many years ago, when another hero was born in a lowly manger, His father, Kal-El, said to him, “With great power comes great responsibility,” and this remains my favorite Bible verse to this day. It’s something I take very seriously. For that very reason, I come bearing another warning to you today: and that warning is this: there are too many books in Zimmerman Library. There are literally thousands of books in there, most of them just sitting there, most of the time, unused and unread. They’re dangerous and the shelves are so high that if there was ever an earthquake in there, they would fall on everyone and surely end their lives. Just think about it: what’s your emergency Zimmerman Library earthquake plan? Exactly. I knew it. You don’t even have one. “Be crushed beneath books.” That might as well be your plan. Fret not, however, for I have a solution. What if we were to take all the books in the library and stack them up, gluing them together as we go, into an enormous outdoor statue of a friendly friend, waving? Seriously, hear me out. First of all, it would look really cool. The books would be glued together so they wouldn’t be such a fall risk, and wherever you stood on campus — or anywhere in the city, because this thing would be seriously huge — you could look up and feel pride. “I helped build that thing,” you could think. You could put your hand on your heart, hum the Pledge of Allegiance, and know, just know, just know for a fact that you had at least one friend. He’d never leave you. He’d never make other friends who were cooler. He’d never dismiss you as being “completely insane” or “unsafe to have around the kids” or “reeking of that gross wet-trash hovel you built behind your dad’s house.” He wouldn’t. And at night, maybe, he’d talk to you with his mind. Because of that statue, Albuquerque would become known as Albuquerque: Home of the Giant, Waving, Telepathic Book Statue Friend. People from all around the world would flee the earthquakes of their home countries to stand on Albuquerque’s stable bedrock and al-

low their minds to be explored by the statue’s telepathic superpowers. It would be a like a massage … but for brains. Wow! And then, eight times a year, we would gather beneath it, dancing around a maypole in our paper robes, crinkling and leaping and rustling, singing songs of an ancient god who has been reincarnated at last as a friendly waving giant made of books. “He will lead us, he will lead us,” a line of castrated children dressed in taped-together brown-paper lunch bags will sing, as they dance … as they leap … as they skip. “He will fly us to the stars.” UNM has been a university for more than a hundred years. But in all that time, what has it accomplished, really? It’s time we step up our game. It’s time we move forward from simple diplomas and student union buildings, into the realms of endless possibility. Also, those books in Zimmerman are really not safe. Mike Smith UNM student

Men seek revenge for loss to UNLV by J.R. Oppenheim @JROppenheim

A reporter on Monday asked Craig Neal what is needed to win at UNLV this time around. The first three words the New Mexico men’s basketball coach gave were simple, yet direct. “Score more points,” he said. Tonight the Lobos shift their attention to Las Vegas, Nev., for a rematch against the Runnin’ Rebels. Though a showdown with No.6 San Diego State looms on the horizon, UNM’s focus should be squarely on today’s contest, especially because UNLV handed UNM a three-point loss at The Pit on Jan. 15. “I don’t know if a kid should look anywhere ahead of what they do,” Neal said. “They got beat by UNLV and their main focus should be on UNLV.” The last time these teams met, UNM forward Cameron Bairstow missed a go-ahead 16-foot jump shot in the game’s closing moments and, after a pair of UNLV free throws, three game-tying 3-pointers missed the mark. UNM (19-5, 10-2 Mountain West) has won seven of their eight outings since then by roughly 12 points per game. UNLV (17-8, 8-4) currently ranks third in the conference standings, behind SDSU and UNM. The

Runnin’ Rebels lost to the Aztecs in the game following their victory over the Lobos, but won six of their next seven games. Most recently, UNLV dropped Utah State 73-62. “Any time you get beat at your place then you go back to the other person’s place — for this pivotal of a game — revenge is always the word that comes to mind,” UNM guard Kendall Williams said. “We’re taking it along the lines that it’s a big week for us. One game at a time, obviously.” Neal stressed that his team must do a better job with its pick-and-roll defense, something he said UNLV exploited in the previous game. UNM has improved on that, he said. Another key against UNLV, Neal said, involves limiting 3-point attempts. Runnin’ Rebel guard Kevin Olekaibe, who ranks fourth in 3-pointers made in the conference, drained four triples against UNM in the earlier meeting. The Lobos rank last in the conference in 3-point field goal percentage defense. Neal said UNM must also be aware of Khem Birch, UNLV’s 6-foot-9 center who blocked nine shots against Utah State on Saturday. “We just have to come out with intensity and play harder and hopefully we’ll play better,” Neal said. “But I think we’ve gotten better since we’ve played them, so that’ll be the big thing.”

The list was trimmed down from an original 80 athletes. Williams initially made the list in 2011 and 2012, along with teammate

Hugh Greenwood. Williams also advanced to the top 20 last year. “It’d be nice to make that finals list, but that means we’ve got to keep playing good ball and I’ve got to keep playing good ball,” he said. “I feel good about it, though. It’s a nice award.” This year he improved both his scoring average (from 13.3 to 17.2)

and assists (4.88 to 5). Williams also tends to guard the best player on the opponent’s team, Neal said. Former Lobo Dairese Gary earned a place on the list in 2009 and 2010. San Diego State guard Xavier Thames also made the 2014 Cousy list.
