ASSEMBLY VISITS PRESIDENT'S HOME
Shapiro hears MSA's concerns
BY MITCH STUART
University President Harold Shapiro
spoke with the Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA) in his home last night,
saying he shares many of MSA's con-
cerns about affirmative actin and
minority recruitment programs.
"I have worked hard and will con-
tinue to work hard in that area. (But) I
don't know how to respond to the
question 'What do you do about
exism?' or 'What do you do about
cism?'," Shapiro said.
SHAPIRO ADDED, however, he
recognizes that there is some sexism
and racism in the University com-
munity. He said it might be possible to
deal with such attitudes on a personal
level, by showing through one's actions

minority programs was sparked by a
ecently-released University study that
owed retention of minority students

coming years, Shapiro quipped, "With
Shapiro explained his view of Univer-
sity money problems: "I think that we
are going to be able to control the
quality of what we do only by con-
trolling the quantity of what we do," he
HE SAID, "controlling quantity"
would definitely involved cutting cer-
tain programs back. He cited a cutback
in the School of Pharmacy as an exam-
ple of a current reduction, but could of-
fer no future projections on further
When MSA member Roy More asked
Shapiro his position on course
evaluations, Shapiro responded in favor
of evaluations, but expressed concern
about the possibility of mandatory
course evaluations against faculty
Shapiro said both students and
faculty would have to be satisfied that
any evaluation program is equitable
before he could consider it fair.
MSA Minority Affairs Coordinator
Anita Eve asked why the University
has taken so long to deal with over-
crowding in undergraduate classes,,
specifically In the economics depar-
Shapiro responded,."That severe
overcrowding is hard to handle because
you aren't sure how long the over-
crowding conditions will last."
He said part of the problem is

economics is declining, yet the same
number of courses have been offered in
