What's going on, Albuquerque?

Makes sense that in 2009 a lot of folks fled to the University and it also makes sense that they want those numbers to continue to increase--graduate tuition is higher. However, in most disciplines, graduate students also require a lot more mentoring (thesis, dissertation, etc.) so they also need to consider increasing faculty positions.

While I can understand the VA's "requirement that service dogs it covers be trained by groups accredited by either Assistance Dogs International or the International Guide Dog Federation," I don't agree that training groups should overlook dogs from animal shelters as candidates. The animal shelters typically have an over-abundance of dogs (so much so that Albuquerque recently waived adoption fees and gave dogs away). Proper selection and proper training are key... not breed.
What's a "seisure?" Is it anything like "leisure?"
If you want more graduate students you need to have more employees, citywide, who need advanced degrees for their careers. That's difficult to achieve when 1/7 of your workforce is minimum wage and a "success story" for our economic development people is a new Lowe's call center.
UNM could manage a larger graduate program if it would tend to its knitting in other areas. Nobody cares much about football here, win or lose. That's true at Seattle University and Creighton. Both play basketball, forget about football and have money making programs. In NM, Shiprock and Kirtland Central three years ago drew 14,500 at the Pit playing basketball. Both schools are more than 200 miles from Albuquerque. UNM can't fill its football stadium with a metro area that extends from Belen to Santa Fe and makes up nearly half the state's population. Solution: Drop football. Put the money into a good -- real good -- revenue-enhancing basketball program.
