EXPOSURE TO asbestos can cause
"asbestosis," a scarring of the lung
tissue that cuts down on breathing
capacity in a similar fashion to em-
physema or lung cancer.
"The problem is that (asbestos)
doesn't show up on X-rays for up to 30
years," Monroe said.
Even though universities are not
required by the Environmental Protec-
tion Agency to continually check cam-
pus buildings for asbestos, Monroe said
"we as a university want to protect our
employees and have taken it upon our-
selves to do it."
The official university policy on
asbestos states that firms doing any
type of renovation on campus buildings
must protect the University com-
munity, the environment, and the
workers making inspections from ex-
posure to asbestos.
Report calls
for more aid
to minorities
(Continued from Page 1)
reach that goal. Black enrollment
peaked at 7.2 percent in 1976. In fall
1984, 5.1 percent of the students on
campus were black.
Increasing the number of minority
students applying to the University is
Sudarkasa's first suggestion.
Brochures that address the "specific
needs and concerns of minority studen-
ts must be developed and continually
reviewed," the report says.
SUDARKASA'S report also em-
phasizes increased communication with
potential students about financial aid
for minority students. Improved com-
munication will improve the effect of
other recommendations and will not be
a major expense, the report says.
According to David Robinson, an
assistant director of admissions and
minority recruiter, current minority
recruitment programs already keep his
department busy.
"I don't see how we can (expand).
We're pretty well loaded," he said, ad-
ding that an increase in staff would be
necessary for such expansion.
PERSONALIZED recruiting in large
minority communities by alumni, ad-
missions officers, faculty, and students
is Sudarkasa's second recommended
method of increasing the minority ap-
plication pool.
Faculty involvement, however, will
require support services, financial
rewards, and total faculty commitment
in order to succeed, said Bunyan
Bryant, the only black professor in the
School of Natural Resources and a
minority recruiter for the last eight
Increases in financial aid is the
report's major recruitment plan.
Sudarkasa calls for aid to "all qualified
minority residents." She recommends
that the awards should be equal to those
of the Opportunity Program award of
Sudarkasa also recommends that
merit aid for minorities be increased.
The Michigan Achievement Award,
given to outstanding minority students,
would be increased from $750 to $1,000
and become a renewable grant.
Out-of-state minority merit awards
should be continued and "two or three
tuition-linked merit grants for outstan-
ding underrepresented minority
students'', should be created.
Sudarkasa proposes that the ad-
missions practices for minorities be
