to hold listening session at UW-Eau Claire Tuesday
The UW System Board of Regents will hold several listening sessions this month to learn how proposed budget cuts could affect UW campuses and the communities in which they are located.
The first listening session will take place at UW-Eau Claire Tuesday, March 11, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Tamarack Room of Davies Center. A live Webcast of the listening session may be accessed from the UW-Eau Claire home page under "Headline News."
The UW System Regents and President Katharine C. Lyall will be available to discuss the issues and answer questions. An invited panel of guests representing UW System campuses and communities in west central Wisconsin will participate in the discussion, which is open to the public.
Gov. Jim Doyle has proposed a $250 million cut to the UW System in the 2003-05 state budget. The governor also has proposed tuition increases to offset some of the cuts, but even if they were approved the reduction to the UW System still would be $100 million, or about 10 percent of the university's annual state appropriation.
During the listening sessions, UW System Board of Regents President Guy A. Gottschalk, President Lyall and three to four other regents will meet with students, parents, faculty, academic staff, campus administrators, business owners, community leaders, local elected officials, K-12 educators and UW alumni/donors for a town hall-style discussion.
UW-Green Bay will host a listening session Thursday, March 13. Tentative listening sessions also are planned for Waukesha on March 25, Stevens Point on March 26 and Madison on March 31.
Those in attendance will have an opportunity to comment on the Environmental Impact Assessment of the project. Copies of the EIA are available at UW-Eau Claire's McIntyre Library and at the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library downtown.
For more information, contact Terry Classen at 836-5278 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Dean of Students Office is assisting students, faculty and staff with this process and, along with others, providing occasional follow up with the students. For additional information, contact the Dean of Students Office at 836-5626.
Campaign: The impact of our gifts
During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Brazil was fascinated with France and France in turn was fascinated with Brazil. As a result, music composed during this era reflects the culture of both countries. The Brazilian-born artists will present music of the era that offers an attractive combination of French elegance and Brazilian temperament.
Gerling, on violin, and Dossin, on piano, will begin this unique concert with "Copacabana" by D. Milhaud. The performance also will include H. Villa-Lobos' Sonata-Fantasy No. 1; Sonata No. 4 by C. Guarnieri; and "Mae d'agua Canta" by L. Cosme. The concert will end with Sonata in A Major by C. Franck. Dossin said, "The piece by Franck is one of the most beautiful works ever written for violin and piano."
Gerling received his graduate training in the United States at the New England Conservatory and at the University of Iowa. Dossin received a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin and the Master of Fine Arts Degree and the Advanced Post Graduate Certificate from the Tschaikowsky Conservatory in Moscow, Russia.
Dossin, who joined the UW-Eau Claire music department
last year, has performed in 15 countries during the last 20 years and
is a prizewinner in several national and international piano competitions.
