"Sometimes is helps to think of tuition setting in Utah like a layer cake," said Linda Makin, UVU executive director of planning and budgets. "There are two lay ers to the cake-the first is set by the Utah State Board of Regents and is the same at each institution. The second tier is recommended by the institutions for approval by the Regents but varies based on the institution needs, priorities, etc. The two tiers combined comprise the entire tuition increase." According to a press release issued by the Utah State Board of Regents, the first tier increase is set at 1 percent and the second tier will increase by 7.7 percent. Makin said that generally the first tier increase is used as part of the funding for compensation increases approved by the legislature.

BACA: the keepers of the children Bikers Against Child Abuse visits U VU JESSICA BURNHAM News writer Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) gave a well-attended presentation in the UVU Grande Ballroom on March 31 in an effort to raise awareness regarding issues of violence and neglect towards children. BACA was established by John Paul Chief Lilly, a licensed clinical social worker, play therapist and part-time faculty member at Brigham Young University. His professional expertise had him dealing largely in the treatment of abused children which is how he recognized the need for BACA. Their first ride was held in 1995 when they visited battered children and embraced them as members of their biker family. As a nonprofit organization, BACA exists to provide safety and funded therapy to children. "Many people have misconceptions about our organization because of the biker stereotype, but we aren't a cliche biker club," said Chris Fillmore, a BACA member. "We are from all different walks of life. Our members vary from conservative LDS temple workers to more secular individuals who all wanted to get involved and do our part to help the children."The organization is growing quickly with 142 chapters across the U.S. and others in Australia. To become a member, one must be at least 18, have access to a motorcycle, pass a background check, ride as a supporter for two years and be unanimously voted in by the BACA Board of Directors. "Child abuse is so ghastly that everyone should feel the compulsion to get involved," said Roger Wise, a BACA member and secondary education professor at UVU.
