ANN ARBOR-The University of Michigan's Stu-
dent Government Council has voted to "suspend its
formal association" with the U-M Office of Student
Affairs.
After the 11-5 vote Thursday night (Nov. 17) coun-
cil president Edward N. Robinson, '67, emphasized that
SGC is "not breaking from the University community.
Rather, we are trying to move into closer contact with
that community by utilizing the channels of communi-
cation that already exist, and by crossing the artificial
barriers that may now exist among the segments of the
University community."
The council declared that it was making the break
to "best act as the representative of the student body
in the decision-making process of the University, and
to build an educational community of students, faculty
and adminstrators working for best interest of the
University."
The action resulted from the refusual of Richard L.
Cutler, U-M vice president for student affairs, to sus-
.fl lD wRh

pend the so-called sit-in ban pending discussion of it
with students. SGC contends that imposition of the ban
was one of many actions taken without consultation
with the students. SGC has 'not opposed the ban itself,
which forbids protest activities that disrupt the work-
ings of the University.
In withdrawing from OSA, SGC pledged to "work
in cooperation with existing faculty and administrative
bodies, as with all members of the University com-
munity."
Robinson expressed hope of building with the fac-
ulty and administration a stronger position for SGC so
that it may better represent students when it feels able
to return to the policies and procedures of OSA.
"We are asking," stressed Robinson, "that all stu-
dents, faculty, and administrators join with us in work-
ing together for the kind of unified community which
will best serve the interests of education, and there-
fore the University."
