Students sit-in last night outside the Fleming Administration Building where the ad hoc committee on
classified research was holding its second meeting. The activists were demonstrating against the lack of
communication between the University community and the committee.

member panel wasn't enough from
the University community.
"They don't want input from the
students and faculty," Goldstein said.
'I do think it's inappropriate for the
meetingsto be closed."
ANOTHER demonstrator, former
University student Steve Austin, said
an issue as important as the classified
research guidelines should be debated
publicly. "The rest of the University
should at least know what's going on,"
he said.
Demonstrators also said they
believe membership on the commit-
tee is dominated by men and by
people who favor a change in the

guidelines. "I am shocked that in this
day and age there is only one woman
on the panel," said Melanie Fors, a
1971 graduate of the University who is
now a research assistant in the School
of Public Health.
Committee Chairman Philip Con-
verse, a professor of political science
and sociology, said after last night's
meeting that his panel plans to
discuss openly the review of the
guidelines. "We are very eager to get
whatever input we can from the
community," he said.
CONVERSE also said the commit-
tee has scheduled a tentative public
meeting to discuss the research
guidelines for Dec. 5 at 8 p.m. The
location of the meeting has not been

determined, he said.
During the meeting, the committee
heard from Ingrid Kock, the Michigan
Student Assembly's military research
Kock, a junior in the Residential
College, presented a report to the
committee on how other universities
restrict classified research. The
report said that "the vast majority"
of other universities' guidelines are
'as strict or more strict" than the
University's guidelines.
Several prominent institutions,
such as Harvard and Yale, prohibit
classified research or research that
cannot be openly published, according
to Kock's report.

The program offers training in cellular and molecular approaches
to the study of cell structure and function, mechanisms of
embryonic differentiation, and the development and structure of

According to Robinson, including
parents in the admissions process
plays an important part in recruiting
a student to the University.
"Parents have a lot of concerns. To
involve parents in the process is a
benefit - I don't think we could do it
any other way," he says.
THE ADMISSIONS office sponsors
a minority student weekend in March,
for which incoming minority fresh-
men are invited to spend a weekend
with a volunteer student. The
prospective students visit classrooms,
meet financial aid officers, see a film
about the campus, and learn about the
Comprehensive Studies Program,
which provides tutoring and
academic and financial counseling for
University minority students.
Robinson says that college fairs are
conducted at area schools throughout
the year and are held in other areas of
the state every two years. He added
that the office hold workshops to
recruit out-of-state students in
Chicago and Cleveland.
Last spring, the University in-
creased financial aid funds for
minority students to make the
University more affordable. The $1.4
million increase went into effect this
fall and will increase the amounts of
need-based aid awards available to
minority students.
ROBINSON expects the programs
to have a "positive impact" on
minority enrollment, although he
could not estimate the extent of that
The admissions office also solicits
help from minority students already
enrolled at the University. Through
the Each One Reach One Program,
minority students submit names of
prospective freshmen to the ad-

Program. The student invited him to

tactic, but it didn't really sway me,"
he says.
The University needs to clarify
some misconceptions about its image
if it wants to attract more minorities,
Nelson says.
"Students must be told that the
University is for everybody. "Getting
here may not be as hard as they
think," he says.
Prospective students may shy away
from the University for a number of
reasons, including lack of knowledge
about financial resources, and fear of
