The story “Residents Blast UCB’s Long Range Expansion Plan” in the May 14 edition mistakenly reported that under UC Berkeley’s long range development plan, over 75 percent of new academic space would be built on the main campus or adjacent blocks. The 75 percent figure only counts the main campus and adjacent blocks to the west. 

Also, the story mistakenly reported that UC Planner Kerry O’Banion said that 95 percent of university research funding has come from “public or non-private sources.” O’Banion actually said the funding came from public or nonprofit sources. 


The Story “Brower Center, Budget Issues on Council Agenda” in the May 18 edition mistakenly identified David Brower as the founder of the Sierra Club. John Muir founded the Sierra Club. Brower was its first executive director.›
