Bullard offers rights bill,

The Michigan Daily- Friday, October 5, 1984--Page 3
Teach-in describes nuclear war

A state lawmaker is scheduled to
make a campus appearance Monday to
announce a bill which would protect the
civil rights of college students punished
nder non-academic conduct codes.
Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor)
will appear at a press conference in the
Michigan Student Assembly chambers
to announce the bill. It will be formally
introduced on the House floor Nov. 13.
THE PROPOSAL, dubbed the
"Student Bill of Rights," would allow
students at the state's public colleges
and universities to sue their schools if
they feel their rights were violated
yuring non academic disciplinary ac-
tions.
Bullard introduced the measure in
light of student fears at the University
df Michigan that a non academic con-
duct code, currently under con-
sideration by- the administration,
violates students' rights to due process
and places them in double jeopardy.
"(The bill) enunciates that those
protections cannot be denied students,"
id Bullard's press officer, Jim Bur-
helL
IF THE proposal is passed, students
accused . of misconduct would be
guaranteed a formal hearing before a
jury of their peers to determine guilt.,

Students would also be allowed to con-
sult an attorney at all stages of the
process and to cross-examine wit-
nesses.
Students accused of non-acadmic
conduct violations at the state's public
four-year schools are currently tried by
panels made up of faculty members,
students, and administrators.
Under the proposal, students would
also ( be protected against self-
incrimination and guaranteed the right
to appeal any disciplinary action to the
school's governing body.
Bullard introduced the bill Sept. 13,
but the measure was not fgrmally
recorded because the House speaker
adjourned the session before it could be
read on the floor. The House Committee
on Colleges and Universities has not yet
begun to consider the bill.
MSA President Scott Page said he
applauds Bullard's move if it is a show
of concern for students' rights. But "if
it's only a political move,, then I have
great difficulty with it," he said.
"I think it has little chance of
becoming law.., and even if it did by
the time it was passed our code will
probably be resolved," Page said.

Last night was an enlightening - and
scary - night for 150 students in Alice
Lloyd's Pilot Program who par-
ticipated in a teach-in on nuclear
issues.
The Pilot Program sponsored the
evening as part of a one-credit course
about making choices. According to
Gigi Bosch, the program's administ-
rative assistant, the teach-in gave
students a chance "to think critically,
hear different viewpoints, and make
their own choices about the issue."
DAVID SCHOEM, director of the
Pilot Program, said "students have a

lot of interest (in peace and nuclear
issues) . . . and want to talk about it.
They're not learning in (high) school,
so they're coming to college
uneducated and anxious to learn."
Last; night's program consisted of
films, an organizational fair featuring
groups from the campus and the com-
munity, a talk by Prof. Richard Mann
from the psychology department about
making personal choices concerning
IN his talk, Mann encouraged studen-
ts not to always worry about
rationalizing their decisions. "I don't
know how I make decisions," Mann
said. "There's something with the

heart, though, you feel some inner
movement of sympathies. . . You just
can't help it."
Some students, like Stephanie Skren-
tny, learned a lot and by the end of the
experience summed up their feelings
by saying, "I'm massively confused."
Both Mann and Schoem hoped the
program would be the start of many
more classes dealing with peace issues.
Another student, Paul Torres,
claimed that although he did not learn
anything new from the evening, it did
''reinforce my hatred of nuclear war."~
