Transcript I MACE IS EVERYTHING WHEN A BUDGET IS IN QUESTION State Rep. Garnet Coleman told members of UH faculty that the University of Houston must improve its image in order to ensure that it isn't forgotten in the next legislative session. "You have to be seen as a resource, both to the legislature and the community. You need to make yourself indispensable," Coleman urged. Coleman, a Democrat representing House District 147, which includes the UH campus, said UH's funding will likely decrease in the next session, and the faculty have to do their part to protect what they can. Although the university has relied on special funding called "holds harmless" for the past few years to cushion budget cuts, that funding won't be available for much longer, Coleman said. "I'm just letting you know there's no more reprieve," he said. Coleman was a member of ^^ the House Appropriations Committee, as well as a member of -, the Conference Committee on Appropriations, during the last session. As the federal government shifts more responsibility to the states, Coleman said, universities have a chance to prove their worth. "When that block grant comes down (from the federal government), we won't just be implementing policy, we'll be making policy," he said. "We need a brain trust. "See where you can provide expertise. Organize yourselves to present testimony, present papers, stuff you all like to do. "(The) Health Law and Policy (Institute) drafted a bill for me. They testified for a colleague of mine on his bill. We were both on the Conference Committee. As I recall, Health Law and Policy got some money." Being helpful and showing off accomplishments will help to secure funding for special items, such as the Health Law Institute and the Space Vacuum Epitaxy Center, Coleman said. Coleman also said that to secure funding, UH should take more steps to recruit locally. "If you get students in the pipeline, that will increase your formula enrollment," he said. Some faculty expressed skepticism that UH should concentrate on local recruitment rather than looking across the nation, but Coleman stood firm. "You have a lot to offer, but I don't believe you're going to make up your enrollment deficit by recruiting around the nation," he said. UH President Glenn Goerke praised Coleman in his introduction. "He's never been afraid to tell us what he thought, and he's often too damn accurate," he said. "We never would have held on to holds harmless were it not for Garnet Coleman." Alex Ignatiev, a physics professor and director of SVEC, said Coleman's ideas will likely be put into practice as the next session approaches. "The . kind of policy groups he I suggested are something we / will be looking at in the future," he said. The meeting was the first of eight planned meetings with area legislators. - James V.
