The Michigan Mandate has suc-
cessfully increased minority student
enrollment and minority faculty re-
cruitment this term, University
President James Duderstadt told the
University's Board of Regents in
December.
But representatives from minority
campus groups are concerned that the
highly touted plan to increase racial
and ethnic diversity on campus has
not done enough.
Total minority enrollment cited
in the Michigan Mandate for fall,
1988 is at 15.4 percent or 4,991
students; with 2,011 Blacks enrolled,
824 Hispanics, 2,024 Asian Ameri-
cans, and 132 Native Americans.
In 1986-87, total minority en-
rollment was at 12.7 percent; with
1,674 Blacks enrolled for fall of
1986, 621 Hispanics, 1,557 Asian
Americans, and 133 Native Ameri-
cans, according to the Affirmative
Action Report.
Statistics for fall, 1987 were not
available yesterday.
Thus, while overall minority en-
rollment has increased, the number
of Native American students has de-
creased by one.
"[University Native American
groups] and the administration have
discussed the need to increase the
Native American population at the

University of Michigan," said
Melissa Lopez, a member of the
Native American Student Associa-
tion and the Michigan Student As-
sembly's Minority Affairs Commit-
tee.
"We hope that the University will
expand its efforts in recruiting and
most importantly retaining the Na-
tive American students as well as
increasing the number of Native
American faculty," she said.
Barbara Ransby, spokesperson for
United Coalition Against Racism,
also voiced a need for more expan-
sive university efforts.
"The goal the University set in
1970 was 12 percent Black enroll-
ment, comparable to the Black
population in the country," she said.
"At this point, they are still only
half way toward that goal. It [6.2
percent Black enrollment] seems to
be a rather modest accomplishment
and nothing they should pat them-
selves on the back for."
Vice-Provost for Minority Affairs
Charles Moody admitted that the
University does have a long way to
go. "It's not going to happen
overnight. But because it is going to
take time it doesn't give us a license
to do nothing. We have to keep
working," Moody said.
According to the Mandate, 19
Black faculty and 11 Asian American

ist do
members were hired for last term.
Despite three offers made, no His-
panic faculty were hired last fall.
And although three minority faculty
left their positions during the past
year, that attrition rate is roughly
half the normal rate. Native Ameri-
can minority faculty recruitment
figures are not listed.
"The fact that there has been zero
Hispanic faculty recruited gives us
great cause for concern," said LSA
sophomore Grecia Souffront, an of-
ficer of the Socially Active Latino
Students Association.

Despite the 11 new Asian
American faculty members, Asian
American Association member Mike
Wang, an LSA senior, said the lack
of tenured minority professors re-
mains a big issue.
Regent Paul Brown (D-Petoskey)
said he is pleased with Duderstadt's
plan. "I think it's [the Michigan
Mandate] is an excellent start, and
we will continue our emphasis on
our programs," he said. "This year
was a good year. There has to be
some caution... we have to keep r-
viewing and modifying our programs."

Douglas Mullkoff, attorney for
the defendants, said sentencing was
postponed because one of the four,
Scott Goldberg, underwent dental
surgery and was r table to complete
a required pre-sentence interview by
the court's probation department or
to attend sentencing.
The four first-year students
pleaded no contest to disorderly con-
duct charges during their arraignment
Dec. 14. Elden informed them that
the plea would be treated as a plea of
guilty and that themaximum pun-
ishment for a disorderly conduct
conviction is 90 days in jail and/or a
fine of up to $IlOQ.
The names of the students were
not released until their arraignment.
The three who accompanied Gold-
berg were identified as Aaron Axel,
Richard Nelson and Jeffrey Baron.
When the four were apprehended by
police in a nearby parking lot fol-
lowing the incident, they all gave
false names, which delayed action on
the case while police attempted to
uncover their identities.
Axel refused comment on a pos-
* sible sentence for him and his co-de-
fendants.
"I don't think there is really any-

sorority during the early morning of
Nov. 29. A sorority member told
police one of the men entered her
room and asked her to sign her name
on his buttocks.
The sentencing date had been pre-
viously changed from Dec. 30 to
Jan. 6 when Mullkoff informed the
judge that the original date would
fall over Christmas break, which the
students had planned to spend at
home.
