from student caucus

Michigan Student Assembly
President Kurt Muenchow resigned
from the Student Caucus on
Strategic Planning last night,
saying that appointments to such a
committee should have been made
by the assembly.
"Any student input into
University decision-making should
go through MSA," said Muenchow.
"Otherwise there's the possibility
of an administrator picking and
choosing students on campus who
will only rubber-stamp his ideas."
THE caucus, formed at the end
of fall term under the direction of
interim President James Duderstadt,
was made up of students appointed
by former MSA President Paul
Josephson. It was created to include
students in Duderstadt's new

Muenchow joined the group,
abiding the condition that he not
inform MSA members of the
proceedings. "I was almost as much
as told that if I brought this to

meeting, Muenchow refused to say
why he was banned from telling
MSA about the caucus and deferred
the question to Josephson.
Josephson refused to comment.
MSA member Ken Weine, an
LSA junior, said he first became
aware of the caucus when he read
about it in The Daily. "As an MSA
representative I didn't really
understand how or where this group
was formed," he said. "I'm outraged
to see MSA's appointment power
overlooked by other student

bypasses regental bylaws reserving
the right to appoint student
representatives for MSA.
"We need to assert our authority
and keep our powers," said Teschke.
"They're being eroded right now."
MSA members who opposed the
resolution feared that condemning
the caucus might endanger the
students' ability to voice their
opinion in Duderstadt's strategic

good to condemn this because
Duderstadt may act to dismantle it,"
