Issues

FIGHT FOR DIVERSITY
Ron will support the HAIL Scholarship and Wolverine Pathway programs to
make sure that all deserving inner city students in Michigan will have a chance
to apply and succeed at the University of Michigan. No high achieving student
should denied a chance to attend UofM simply because of finances.

KEEP TUITION AFFORDABLE
Ron will ensure that Michigan students and families reap the benefits of
responsible budgets and fiscal policies. Ron will work to not only slow the rate
of tuition increase, but will fight every day to reduce tuition for Michigan
students.

GUARANTEE THE COST OF A DEGREE
You wouldn’t purchase a home without knowing your cost over the term of
your loan, and you shouldn’t go to school without knowing the cost of your
degree. Ron will work to make sure that students will know what their tuition
cost will be during the first five years that they are getting their degree as long as
they stay in school.

ENSURE THE EQUALITY OF ALL CAMPUSES
Ron understands that living in Ann Arbor is not affordable for many students.
He believes that students who attend UofM Flint and UofM Dearborn should
have access to the same quality of classes, professors, rights and privileges as
their counterparts at UofM Ann Arbor. Regardless of which campus they
graduate from, their degree should simply read “University of Michigan”.

DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY
Ron believes that the Regents are elected by and therefore responsible to the
people of Michigan. He will push to have the University post the budget online
and adhere to the Open Meetings Act. The Regents must be accountable to the
voters of Michigan.
