Some percentage changes may be
much larger than the actual numerical
changes because overall enrollment
figures are small. None of the
schools has over 1,000 students en-
All figures were provided by the
office of the University's Vice Presi-
dent for Academic Affairs.
One recommendation, now put
into practice, was for schools to
work together in a concerted recruit-
ment effort. To attract more minority
students to graduate education in the
health sciences, the schools mailed
about 3,000 invitations to minority
students living in residence halls to
attend "dorm nights," said Donald
Strachen, assistant dean for admis-
sions in the Dental School and a task
force member. About 30-40 people
attended a dorm night in Mary
Markley residence hall last week, he
Four dorm nights were held last
semester, and another is planned for
this semester. They are seen as a way
to "build some linkages early in un-
dergraduate careers" between minority
students and faculty members, said
Dr. Margaret Woodbury, assistant
dean for student and minority affairs
in the Medical School and a task
Woodbury was one of several
people to accompany Charles
Moody, vice provost for minority
affairs, to Chicago last fall for a
"University of Michigan Day." Rep-
resentatives of the University held an
open house and invited a select group
of Chicago-area minority students.
Woodbury said this was another
opportunity for prospective students
to meet faculty members. Other "U
of M Days" in cities with large mi-
nority populations will be planned in
the future, she said.
"There's always a concern... that
[a report; can become a shelf job,"
said Margaret Warrick, director of
student services in the School of
Public Health and a member of the
task force. To prevent the
recommendations from being ne-
glected, a group of original commit-
tee members and specially appointed
individuals will meet regularly to
ensure that the recommendations of
the report get implemented.
Tomorrow: A look at what pro-
grams the individual health science
schools have implemented.

Women who have influenced the
civil rights movement were honored
Friday as the University's Com-
memoration of a Dream Committee
continued its celebration of
Gloria House, former member of
the Student Nonviolent Coordinating
Committee (SNCC) in Alabama, led
about 50 students and faculty mem-
bers in a discussion about women
civil rights leaders, including Rosa
Parks and Ella Baker.
House dispelled the long-held no-
tion that women played a minimal
part in the Civil Rights Movement.
Men and women were equals in the
movement, she said, because "they
were willing to risk their lives for
the cause, and so were we. We
claimed our equality and worked out
of our equality."
House then discussed the role
SNCC played in the Alabama Civil
Rights Movement. That group, she
said, eventually affected the entire
nation because "SNCC inspired you
to go out and be active because you
knew you were right."
House said people should
"understand the atmosphere Blacks
had to work under to make change."
She described the violence, terrorism,
and economic threats Blacks endured
to survive and make change. At one
point, local whites who objected to
the civil rights movement would fire
guns at SNCC members' homes
nightly, she said.
In the early '60s, Alabama was
about 85 percent Black, yet the state
had no Black elected representatives,
But to offset the white
supremacist-led Democratic party,
House said SNCC organized its own
section of the Democratic party and
by 1966 the first Black was elected to
office. In 1968, a Black sheriff was
elected. "A good deal of national
sentiment was driven on by what
happened in Alabama in the 1960s,"
Before House's discussion, a film
on Ella Baker was shown outlining
more than 20 years of service she
gave to the civil rights movement.
Baker fought to gain freedom and
equality for Blacks by traveling
through the southern states, making
speeches and rallying people to ac-
