Regents elect Ernest Calderón as board president

Phoenix attorney Ernest Calderón has been elected president of the Arizona Board of Regents and begins his term July 1.

The 12-member board oversees the three state universities: Arizona State University, University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University. Members of the Board of Regents are appointed by the governor and serve eight-year terms.

Calderón has a bachelor’s degree from NAU and has a law degree from UA. He is a former president of the State Bar of Arizona, former chairman of the Catholic Community Foundation and was Arizona’s first Harry S. Truman Scholar.

Calderón says his goals are to make higher education affordable, accessible and as financially predictable as possible in these challenging economic times. Arizona’s three state universities serve about 127,500 students.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
