according to Julie Steiner, director
of the University's Sexual Assault
Prevention and Awareness Center.
The exhibition of works by 19

women is sent to universities
throughout the country, and will be
accompanied by a series of dis -
cussions and workshops focusing
on sexual assault by members of
the University community.
According to Associate Dean of
the School of Art Mame Jackson,
the exhibit consists of "a group of
visual images responding to a
difficult societal issue."
Programs held in conjunction
with the art exhibit include panel

discussions about dealing with
sexual assault, the premiere of the
Citizen's Advisory Committee on
Rape Prevention's newly-produced
educational videotapes, and
discussions involving methods of
rape awareness and education.
Steiner said a wide variety of
programs are being presented to
attract varieties of people.
"The people who come to an art
exhibit are not the same ones who
will come to a film or a discussion,"

Steiner said.
Two years ago, University
groups tried to bring the art exhibit
to the School of Art, but failed due
to what Steiner termed "the lack of
heightened awareness of sexual
assault on campus."
The series of discussions and the
art exhibit is sponsored by a broad
coalition of University and local
offices. Members of the Michigan
Student Assembly and PIRGIM
also support the exhibit.

Many factors affecting black
taff and student recruitment lie
utside the University's direct
ontrol. Dependence on federal
:nds for financial aid is one often-
ited example, as is the "dry
cademic pipeline" from which

blacks are recruited.
But Royster said the University
has used this as an excuse for 17
years.
"How many years have we
known that there hasn't been a
pool? Hell, we've known there
hasn't been a pool long enough to
develop one," she said.
THE UNIVERSITY has
begun some high school outreach
programs to predominantly minor -
ity schools, but these are still in

their early stages.
Roderick Linzie, a sociology
graduate student, said, "What the
University should be doing, since it
is a state - not private -
institution, is helping to take
students from whatever situation or
level they are in and help them
along to a higher achievement level

institution where you take only the
