Re "A medical school? Not now," Editorial, July 19 The Times fails to recognize the severe physician shortage in inland Southern California that UC Riverside's new medical school will address. The assertion that there are not enough doctors here because poor people can't afford medical care is just plain wrong. Our community-based medical school is designed expressly to meet the healthcare needs of this region. Our innovative approach will save the state millions in healthcare costs among the underserved.

"Student's Triumph Offers a Lesson," March 20. Sandy Banks' column profiling a member of El Camino High School's championship academic decathlon team included the statement that "the brainiacs know it may spell the difference between getting into UCLA or winding up at UC Riverside." As a 1981 graduate of UC Riverside, I strongly object to this oddly disparaging comparative reference. Yes, UC-Riverside's student body is small and the campus is on the fringe of the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

After much debate that brought the passions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflicts to campus, UC Riverside's student government has reversed itself and revoked a prior resolution that urged the UC system to divest from companies that have contracts with Israel's military. The student leaders moved to drop the controversial divestment policy after approving it just a month ago because they came to see how it made Jewish students feel “marginalized,” according to Armando Saldana, the Associated Students' executive vice president.
