THE MENU system as yet has no

that, if implemented, the system
would establish a certain number of

DoD fundi~

By ROB EARLE
The University is unlikely to receive
more than a small percentage of the
$183 million in proposals it sent to the
defense department this term, the
University's top research official said
yesterday.
University Vice President for,
Research Linda Wilson told the
Michigan Student Assembly last night
that the University can expect at most
about $3.2 million from the University
Research Initiative. The URI is a
Congressional program to revitalize
the nation's research universities
through the defense department. -
WILSON said that in the past, the
University has received only a small
percentage of funds offered by similar
projects where University faculty
have had to compete with each other.
The assembly asked Wilson to
speak at its last meeting of the year

because they were concerned over
such a large increase in defense-
related requests.
Wilson also defended the URI's
policy of granting funds only to
graduate students who are U.S.
citizens against charges of racism.
Wilson said the policy is only an at-
tempt to encourage U.S. students to
do research work that is increasingly
being performed by foreign students
who take their knowledge and ex-
perience back to their own countries.
WILSON also said the nation
security requirement that resear-
chers in private or government labs
be U.S. citizens does not apply to the
University.
She also tried to clear up what she
deemed as a misunderstanding of her
stand on defense research. "I'm op-
posed to the (Reagan) ad-

pharmaceuticals and chemicals, last Monday ar

$160 million for endowment and selected construc

also seems to be very little

he accomplishments of CIVS

during the past 10 years.
The group has no official charter,
objectives, or long-term agenda. A
brochure published by the
organization states, "CIVS endeavors
to serve as a resource and promoter of
discussions that encompass both
values and science. Its resource
capacity lies in the breadth of par-
ticipants who span the range from the
humanities to the sciences and
engineering." But what exactly goes
on at CIVS remains a matter of
divided opinion.
Members of CIVS express uncer-
tainty about the impact of their
organization on the University. While:
most are quick to point out that CIVS
provided funding for the International

Student Pugwash conference in 1981,
created a University course on scien-
ce and ethics, and has sponsored an-
nual conferences on values related
issues, there is no consensus regar-
ding the potency of the group on
University policy at large.
MANY BELIEVE that the fact that
the group has no specific mission or
mandate is what makes it work.
Others say it doesn't work.
Political Science Prof. John Cham-
berlin, a member of CIVS who teaches
a course on ethics and public policy,
says, "I wouldn't want to see CIVS in-
vested with any more autohority. It's
valuable as an advisory role. I don't
have a sense that they (the University

dean of the College of Pharamacy.
The income from the fund will also be used to
fund the center's studies of new drugs and their ef-
fects.
About $500,000 of the remaining gift will go to the
College of Pharamacy to. establish another en-
dowment fund, the interest of which will provide
Upjohn Fellowships in Pharmaceutics for
graduate students, Paul added.
THE OTHER $500,000 will be used to construct a
chemical science building that will house
medicinal chemistry laboratories, Paul said.
"We are delighted by the news and very grateful
for this expression of confidence from the Upjohn

Company," said University President Harold
Shapiro in a prepared statement.
Although Upjohn has offered financial support
to the University for over a century, Roy Muir,
director of the Campaign for Michigan, said the
newest gift was in direct response to "campaign
solicitations."
Muir said that whereas past grants have been
used mainly for operational and research pur-
poses this recent gift will be used "entirely for
construction and endowment," the two main goals
of the campaign.
The three-year-old campaign has already raised
$118 million of its original projection, he said.
