Board of Trustees establishes tuition hike, construction plans, enrollment increase

first_imgCRES negotiates move to interdisciplinary unit amid student resistance Alumna joins ‘Survivor’ reality show in quest for a million dollars Elizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/ Twitter printThe Board of Trustees set a 4.9 percent tuition increase for the next academic year which will bring tuition up from $44,670 to $46,860.At the close of their fall meeting Friday, Chairman of the Board, Mark Johnson, said a lot of thought went into arriving at this number as well as short-term and long-term planning.“Everyone really has high demands,” Johnson said. “We’ve got to educate you well, give you the opportunity to participate in sports or watch really good sports, but we also have to feed you, take care of you physically as well as mentally. All of those things add up.” Chancellor Victor Boschini said need-based aid will also increase by more than 4.9 percent.“We’ve done that for the past seven years,” Boschini said. “We’ve raised it by at least the same amount, but usually more.”Johnson said a “substantial” portion of the increase goes to financial aid. In addition,  TCU continues to works to strengthen its endowment.“The endowment, as we continue to grow it, gives us the opportunity to help students pay for their education,” Johnson said. “I’d love to see no student have debt in 25 years if we can get there.” In addition to the tuition increase, the board also discussed increasing enrollment and several construction projects.Increasing Student Enrollment  Johnson said at last spring’s Board of Trustees retreat the board approved increasing the full enrollment to 11,000 with 9,500 being undergraduate students. This will be done incrementally by adding 50-75 students in each incoming class over several years.“We’re not going to do that all at once,” Johnson said. “We want to be methodical about that.”The rise in students is not expected to boost classes sizes.Boschini said, as there is a limit of a 14:1 student to faculty ratio that keeps class sizes small. Boschini added the current student to faculty ratio is 13:1.Johnson said the board is sensitive to class size.“There is an environment here, a culture here, that we want to maintain and that’s the ability for students to be known as who they are by the professors and staff,” Johnson said. “If you build it too big you lose what I think is an attribute that really brings a lot of people to this university.”Construction PlansIn order to help house more students, the board approved construction plans for two new residence halls. Boschini said the new buildings will be in the Worth Hills area, facing the current Hayes residence hall, and will provide 301 additional beds in suite-style configuration. Construction is set to begin spring 2018 and open in time for the fall semester of 2019.“We want to have everyone on campus, that’s the ultimate goal,” Johnson said. “We have striven to reach freshman and sophomores, and I think we’re there. We’re full, but we’ve got some junior and seniors as well. We want to continue to move in that direction.” The board also approved plans for a new fine arts building which will include classrooms, design studios, testing and construction labs for textiles, archival storage for textiles, faculty and support offices, student study space and meeting rooms. Construction will begin February 2018 and is anticipated to be completed in time for use in the fall of 2019 semester, Boschini said.A School of Music performance hall will also be added on the east side of campus. Johnson said he thinks the performing hall will be a “statement” building on that side of campus. It will include a 700-seat performance hall and rehearsal rooms for orchestra, band and percussion. Other rooms include a green room, a dressing room for performers, offices and other individual practice rooms, Boschini said.“I think it’s going to be very appealing,” Johnson said. “It will serve a music program that has built a tremendous reputation around the country as being first class. We want to get them the facilities that they deserve.”The football stadium will also see an update in facilities as part of a construction project. The expansion calls for two new levels of luxury seating above the current upper deck and will include premium-level seating up to 1,500 seats and as many as 20 suites. Construction is targeted to commence May 2018 with completion prior to the start of the 2019 football season, according to Boschini.“From the pictures we’ve seen, it’s going to look very good,” Johnson said.Johnson also said the board talked about future plans for construction near Bellaire Drive that will include a new administration building and a restructuring of the Honors College to concentrate the area and provide more classrooms. He also said there were long-term plans to expand the Brown Lupton University Union.As for the financing of these projects, Johnson said some will be funded with university capital. Boschini added residence halls are almost always paid for by the university because the students end up paying for them.For the other construction projects, Johnson said there are fundraising stipulations in the resolutions so the construction can’t proceed until the binding commitments have been received.“So we will be raising money,” Johnson said.  “We’ve got a lot of work to do.”Medical School Johnson said TCU signed the final collaboration agreement with UNTHSC to work with them on the new medical school. They are also moving forward in the accreditation process, which Johnson said is “tremendous.”When first announced the school planned to take students in the fall of 2018; however, that plan has now been pushed back to the fall of 2019.“We moved it out from an accreditation standpoint to give everyone a little more time,” Johnson said.  World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution WATCH: Former Chief of Staff for Obama talks Trump administration, Democrats, liberal arts education TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history ReddIt Previous articleTCU uses legal ‘blocker corporations’ to strengthen endowmentNext articleMen’s basketball secures ‘ugly win’ in season opener against Louisiana Monroe, 83-73 Elizabeth Campbell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Welcome TCU Class of 2025 ReddIt Elizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/ Elizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/ Linkedin Elizabeth Campbell is executive editor of TCU 360 and a senior journalism and political science double major.

New Delhi authorities allow Burmese news agency to reopen

first_img—————-18.04.07New Delhi police close down agency operated by Burmese refugeesReporters Without Borders today condemned the closure of the New Delhi-based Mizzima News Agency, which covers Burma and is run by Burmese journalists who are refugees in India. Police raided the agency’s premises on 16 April and closed it down on the grounds that it is located in a residential area where commercial activity is banned.“It is regrettable that the closure was not preceded by a warning,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The competent authorities should resolve this situation as soon possible so that Mizzima can resume operating. There is no need to point out how valuable the work of these refugee journalists is for the Burmese population.”Launched in 1998 as a non-profit entity, the agency is known for taking pro-democracy positions and for reporting human rights violations in Burma.Mizzima editor Soe Myint, who is currently in Calcutta acting as an interpreter for Burmese rebels being tried on charges of selling arms to Indians, suspects that the agency’s closure could be linked to the trial.“The local authorities know that, ever since our news agency was created, we have not devoted ourselves to any business activities,” he said. Other businessmen and companies installed in the same residential neighbourhood have not been forced to close. Reporters Without Borders hails today’s decision by the authorities in New Delhi to allow the Burmese news agency Mizzima to resume operations. After recognizing that its activities were exclusively journalistic, Municipal Corporation of Delhi deputy commissioner Deepak Hastir said it could reopen. Around 50 of the agency’s employees were demonstrating peacefully outside as he announced the decision. The agency’s location in a residential area where commercial activity is banned was the grounds cited by police for closing it down on 16 April.

The Times, They Are a’ Changin’: AI in Mortgage Servicing

first_img March 10, 2020 1,608 Views Editor’s note: This feature originally appeared in the March issue of DS NewsThere’s no doubt that we are living in times of accelerated change. If you look at how any industry has evolved over the past 100 years—whether it’s travel, communications, or entertainment—you will see a sharp contrast between how slowly things changed a century ago compared to how quickly they are changing today.As just one example, vinyl long-playing records, or LPs, were the standard for decades until the mid-1960s, when 8-track tapes and cassettes took over. Then came CDs in the 1980s, followed by digital music files in the early 2000s. Now most people stream their favorite music through online apps. LPs still exist, but their primary value is based on nostalgia.Eventually, everything changes, but some things take longer than others. Innovation such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and data capture technologies have taken hold in loan manufacturing but have been slower in adoption on the secondary marketing and servicing end of the market. Here they could be enabling faster, more efficient MSR acquisitions and onboarding of loans. Their potential to transform the secondary market is undeniable.The Costs of Yesterday’s TechnologiesAn abundance of diligence questions along with legacy systems with wildly differing customizations has led to a lack of any type of consistency or uniformity in how institutions behave in the secondary market today. As a result, an institution that sells loans of the exact same asset class to both Buyer A and Buyer B is going to have two totally different experiences. This lack of continuity really makes it cumbersome for all parties involved.There are advantages to using trading platforms, of course. They are, on the whole, a much more efficient way to manage capital market price, time of trade, and reduce trade fails. But these platforms do not address the validation of loan documents and data to identify any data inconsistencies. In a single file, you could have a piece of data that says one thing, and documents that say something else entirely—and no means to reconcile the two.Data ingestion is another factor that contributes to variability because of the fact some institutions have modified their systems so they are capable of boarding a sizable amount of data, while other institutions haven’t. Even though there is more loan data available than ever before, those that are slow to adopt have no place to store it—so they stick with spreadsheets or archive the trade tape, figuring that as long as they have the data somewhere, it’s okay.Most secondary market trading platforms have also failed to solve two of the biggest issues MSR traders face, the first of which is timing. Given how quickly prices change in the capital markets, spending days or weeks on MSR acquisitions can be costly and result in the loss of better opportunities.The second issue is the functional fulfillment of the loan and making sure that you bought what you thought you did. This is where things can get clumsy, given the overall lack of data quality and the high degree of variation in document ordering and naming from sellers. In the past, the spreadsheet became the great equalizer, using macros to map data and manual processes to determine if data was missing and to enter it into the buyer’s systems. That approach is neither accurate nor scalable.On the origination side of the business, consumer demand for a simpler, faster, digital experience has motivated lenders to adopt increasingly higher levels of automation. It’s quite a different story in the secondary market, where institutions have been slower to implement automated tools and seem to remain loyal to embedded manual practices. In fact, capabilities already exist that could enable institutions to conduct MSR trades and onboard loans in a fraction of the time it currently takes. With the increasing adoption of these new technologies, however, things are starting to change.Understanding AI’s ImpactOne of the most exciting things happening in the secondary market today is the emergence of AI technology, as well as machine learning tools, which are a subset of AI. AI describes technologies that analyze data and make decisions based on data patterns, whereas machine learning describes technologies that learn to distinguish patterns in data from human instruction and self-learning algorithms.In truth, AI and machine learning, while often talked about, are not as commonplace as many are led to believe. They can create the uniformity these institutions need through the data normalization they provide across sellers’ loan files, making it much easier to ingest documents and data accurately. This then can lead to the use of more sophisticated applications that can significantly help servicers and investors gain greater insights on their portfolios and their trading decisions, especially when determining where risk lies and which loans to sell versus which loans to retain.AI and machine learning technology also enable MSR traders to capture a greater amount of data off loan files and then automatically run business rules around that data. This eliminates the historic “stare and compare” methods of checking data and loan quality and greatly reduces the time and overall cost of due diligence. By green-lighting the vast majority of files in which the data can be trusted, companies can focus on exception-based processing, which allows them to move loans forward much more efficiently.A particular benefit of these technologies lies in the fact that different investors look for different data elements when determining risk. There’s a huge variation among loan purchasers in terms of the data elements that they are concerned about. Certain buyers require checks on 40 different data fields, while others may want to look at 30 or 50—there’s really no consistency among them. Their legal agreements all differ as well. If an investor needs to check 30 unique data elements when buying a pool of loans, they could do so in seconds using machine learning tools to aid the process, rather than spend several days poring over them by hand.These tools are also great for filtering loans. For example, if I’m buying MSRs and I don’t want a large concentration of loans in a specific state or zip code because of the perceived risk involved, I can get that information with a click of a button. I could also build a view of key data elements that are important to me for the loans I’m acquiring and have this information presented in nanoseconds.New technologies also give sellers a huge advantage when it comes to market timing as well, which is a big deal in a rising rate environment. When you’ve made a commitment to sell a pool of loans and there is an agreement in place and a price locked in 10 or 15 days, and you don’t deliver the files in time, you’re at risk of having your loans repriced at today’s rate, which cuts into the premium you were expecting to receive. Because new technologies enable faster trades, the timing issue virtually disappears.When it comes to onboarding loans onto one’s servicing platform, buyers want to make sure there are no data defects and make sure they reach out quickly to borrowers to let them know they are their new servicer. Automated technologies allow them to make sure they have all the correct information, send out borrower letters and have staff reach out to borrowers much faster—servicers can even set up these processes with automated dialers and messaging. This saves an enormous amount of time and improves loan retention.How Momentum Is GrowingOver the past two years, we’ve seen a tremendous amount of pickup in machine learning and data extraction tools in the secondary market. Ultimately, I believe this will bring greater consistency to how the secondary market operates, as well as new best practices. Similarly, secondary market participants that invest in these new technologies won’t simply be able to absorb a great number of loan file types faster and more efficiently, they will also be able to build stronger, more efficient organizations that are better able to compete going forward.Yet there is a major obstacle that lies in the way that I haven’t talked about. Inertia. There’s an entire generation of secondary market professionals who grew up doing things a certain way and remain loyal to those processes—and the people who perform them.  There is a different way to think about this, as new technologies do not necessarily mean these jobs will go away. If institutions that both originate and service loans no longer need 30 acquisition team members to onboard newly acquired loans, but instead only need five, they can move their staff to the origination side of the business and have more flexibility to scale on either side as market volume ebbs and flows. It’s really a matter of reallocating your human resources to best utilize their skills to improve your business.Sometime in the future, there will be an inflection point at which participants will either adopt these new emerging technologies or put their companies’ futures at risk. Throughout the business world, there are countless examples of companies that are no longer around because they couldn’t keep up with the pace of accelerating change. It is naïve to think that it can’t happen in the secondary market.At the end of the day, it’s not a question of if the secondary market will embrace new AI and machine learning technologies, but when. The reduction in time, the cost savings, and the higher quality assets that will result from these changes are too great to ignore much longer. In any event, there will come a time when the predominant technologies used in the secondary market today will be looked at like yesterday’s vinyl records—minus the nostalgia.

Video: Bool’s brightens strangers’ days by gifting bouquets for ‘Petal it Forward’

first_img Tagged: bool’s flower shop, Petal it Forward ITHACA, N.Y. — If you happened to be in the downtown Ithaca area last Wednesday, you may have noticed a peculiar sight: people all over were carrying bright bouquets of flowers. The Ithaca Voice tracked down the source of the floral spectacle to Bool’s Flower Shop of North Aurora Street, which is celebrating 125 years since owner Henry Bool first opened its doors to the public. Jacob is a videographer & digital media contributor for The Ithaca Voice. More by Jacob Mroczek Bool’s current owner, Doreen Culver-Foss, decided that since they were celebrating such an historic birthday, they should participate in ‘Petal it Forward’, an international gift-giving program lead by the Society of American Florists. When asked, personally, why she wanted to hand flowers out to strangers, Culver-Foss replied, “I hope they smile, and I hope they’re very happy and it makes their day… a little brighter, their week a little brighter.”The Society of American Florists reported that “650 floral teams in all 50 states plus Canada, Colombia, and Puerto Rico surprised passersby in their local communities with two free bouquets each—one to keep, and one to share with a friend, family member, co-worker, or even a complete stranger.”Check out the video below, and please share it with a friend!Video by Jacob Mroczek/The Ithaca Voice Your Arts & Culture news is made possible with support from: Jacob Mroczek last_img read more
