Letter to the Editor of the Oklahoma Daily

Note: This correction ran in the Feb. 25 edition of the Oklahoma Daily.

February 23, 2004

To the Editor of the Oklahoma Daily:

I am writing in response to a Feb. 23 article headlined "Boren, legislators meet with UOSA." In the article, Oklahoma University President David L. Boren was referenced as saying that the University of Virginia is considering privatization.

This statement is incorrect. While it is true that U.Va., along with Virginia Tech and William & Mary, have proposed a new relationship with the Commonwealth of Virginia, we have been and always will be a public institution of higher education.
With regards to President Boren's comments on tuition and fees, the University of Virginia has just unveiled a new financial aid initiative -- Access UVa -- that will ensure that any student accepted to the university will be able to attend regardless of economic circumstance. Providing financial support to all students is a critical component of the public mission of the University of Virginia.

For more information on either of these new initiatives, you can visit the University's Web site.

New partnership with the Commonwealth of Virginia:

Access UVa / a commitment to affordability:


Carol Wood
Interim Assistant Vice President
