Shapiro discusses researc
By BETH ALLEN
In his first visit ever to the Michigan
Student Assembly, University
President Harold Shapiro told student
government representatives that the
University is not actively seeking
military research contracts.
In response to a series of questions,
Shapiro said that although the Univer-
sity will not attempt to persuade faculty
members to seek defense department
contracts, neiither, will it prevent them
from working out their own agreements
for military intelligence research.
ON THE SUBJECT of minorities at
the University, Shapiro assured
MSAmember Ken Reeves that the
University would continue its commit-
ment to financial aid for minority
students and noted that the University
is lobbying extensively in Washington
against further cutbacks in federal aid
and loan programs for students.
MSA member Valerie Mims also
asked Shapiro why the University's Af-
firmative Action office has no minority
employees. Shapiro told Mims that the
situation in the affirmative action office
"doesn't reflect anything about what
our attitude is" on minority recruit-
Shapiro also said at the student
government's weekly meeting that the
University hopes by the end of the
academic year to be able "to articulate
just where enrollment adjustments will
take place" to ease student over-
crowding. He added that the University
plans to add more faculty members to
the engineering college to balance a
sliding student-faculty ratio there.
IN OTHER MSA business last night,
the assembly decided to take a
proposed appointment of David
Schaper, a controversial student
government activist, to an interviewing
committee that would select new
justices for the Central Student
Judiciary, the top student government
court. Schaper, a law student, who once
was the CSJ's chief justice, raised a
dispute within the assembly last spring
when he attempted to revise MSA's
compiled code, a body of rules which
governs the conduct of the assembly.
'MSA President Jon Feiger objected ;
strongly to the proposed appointment,
citing Schaper's "extremely controver-
sial" history with student government.
Assembly members overwhelmingly
agreed to table the appointment until
next week at Feiger's request, with
three dissenting votes.
