The Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency applauds the University of Michigan Board of Regents for their decision to grant in-state tuition to anyone who serves in the military or was honorably discharged, regardless of the student’s state of origin. Offering military members and veterans from across the nation the ability to attend the University at in-state tuition rates will help both the University and our state attract the talent Michigan needs to build a thriving economy.

Like past actions organized by the Coalition for Tuition Equality, today’s demonstration at the regents’ meeting serves to remind University leaders of the groundswell of support for immigrants’ rights in Ann Arbor.

Again and again the same three words keep running through my mind: “Who does this?”

I found Anjali Bisht and Chelsea Jedele’s viewpoint “Where are all the women?”, 3/19/13) extremely frustrating. I fundamentally disagree with the idea that, in the year 2013, the committee that chooses commencement speakers should take immutable characteristics into consideration when making its decision.
StandWithUs 'Israeli Soldiers Stories' is designed to foster dialogue about the conflict and to help correct this kind of erroneous information. Ari and I were honored to speak at the University and to be so warmly received.
