Undergraduates have until Oct. 4 to waive the Undergraduate Student Health Insurance Plan. Those who successfully waive the fee for the fall will not be assessed the $181 fee.

    Beginning in fall 2001, the University of California required health insurance of all registered students. Those without health insurance or those with a plan that does not meet the UC requirements will be assessed the quarterly fee.

    Students who miss the deadline or do not meet the minimum requirements will have another opportunity to waive the USHIP fee at the beginning of winter quarter. Successfully waiving the USHIP for the fall also exempts students for the 2002-2003 academic year.

    The requirements and online waiver are available via the World Wide Web at

    IICAS appoints founding director

    UCSD’s Institute for International, Comparative and Area Studies named Miles Kahler the founding director for the newly established research institute.

    Kahler, an international relations scholar who also served as the Rohr Professor at UCSD’s Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, has extensively studied and written about international political economy, repercussions of globalization and international relations of Pacific nations.

    IICAS was created last year to examine international, comparative and cross-regional topics. The new institute will build upon UCSD’s existing international studies program by coordinating interdisciplinary and inter-departmental research while also housing the newlycreated undergraduate major in international studies.

    Kahler has been a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and sits on the editorial board for the journal International Organization. He is a founding member of the IR/PS faculty and came to UCSD in 1996.
