Although many students feet the
University primarily stresses
academics, the Office of Student Ser-
vices and the Michigan League Board
are trying to change the perception by
awarding students for their service to
the campus and the community.
These two groups sponsor the Student
Achievement Awards, which are given
to students for outstanding work out-
side the classroom. The awards are
granted for participation in activities
"which increase the diversity and
enhance the richness of the student's
experience and life on this campus,"
according to the nomination form.
PAST WINNERS have included a
student who coordinated the MSA
Security Task Force, a student who
organized a teach-in on human rights,
and a student who performed volunteer
services for first-time offenders at a
minimum security school.
Graduate studnet Ruth Phillips, who
was lauded for her work in a handicap-
ped students organization, said winning
the award was like "being queen for a
"So often people in your organization
don't pat you on the back, so it's nice to
be appreciated," Phillips said.
THE ONLY difficulty in granting the
prize matbe narrowing down the field
of candidates. "There's a great number
of stories when you bring 30,000 studen-
ts together-people are doing heroic
things," said Vice President for Student
Affairs Thomas Easthope, who helped 0
revive the awards three years ago.
"The awards are a way for students
to identify with the University beyond
just the academic life," Easthope ad-
Any full-time graduate, or un-
dergraduate student is eligible for the
award, ten of which will. be granted

fice. of Students Services at 3000

assistance of three members of the

The 1981 ILIR review reported that
the institute's "research has declined in
quality over the years and its
educational programs suffer from a
disconnectedness from the mainstream

"THE BENEFITS that ILIR
generates both within the University

in terms of the University resources
utilized," the report also concluded.

The Institute for the Study of Mental
Retardation and Related Disabilities is
a clinical program that provides
training for students in a number of
disciplines, according to its director.
Herbert Grossman, who was appoin-
ted ISMRRD director one year ago,
said he has known about the impending
review for quite some time. "I initiated
some of this," he said last night.
GROSSMAN SAID that although he
believes the problems faced by the
mentally retarded "should be a major
concern of universities across the coun-
try," he realizes that the University's
financial conditon makes a review of
the program necessary.
The University's program is the only
one of its type in the state, Grossman
In the course of discussion following
Frye's briefing of the Regents yester-
day, there was some concern about
what degree of involvement the Regen-
ts would have in the plan's future.
"WHAT ROLE should the Regents
properly play in identifying units and
implementing the plan?" Regent
Thomas Roach (D-Saline) asked.
Frye promised to keep the Regents
fully informed on the plan's progress
through periodic reports, though he did
not say he would necessarily seek the
Regents' approval of the plans.
Later, Roach told the Daily he was
satisfied with Frye's response to his
"I HAVE GREAT confidence in his
(Frye's) and all of their (the executive
officers')' integrity," he said. "And,
with the reports, we can spot policy
issues as we see them."
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor)
said he was equally satisfied with the
Regents' control of the plan.
"We do have in the constitution and in
the bylaws the right to make any
University judgment," he said. "We're
all in this boat together; the Regents as
well as everyone else."
Several of the Regents praised the
administration's "foresight" in
preparing the plan, noting that this was
one of the University's first efforts at
long-range planning beyond the
traditional year-to-year budget
