Nick Mavrick
Mavrick is chair of the
Michigan Student Assembly's
Student Rights Committee,
which is sponsoring a forum
on the policy Nov. 8. He is
also co-chair of the
administration's student
advisory committee on the
Mavrick said a conduct policy
will not adequately help the problem
of harassment on campus. He said
the University should concentrate its
efforts on other programs to combat
Mavrick said he would like to see
the administration set up a compre-
hensive counseling service similar to
the Sexual Assault Prevention and
Awareness Center to handle cases of
discriminatory harassment.
"We have to challenge whether
it's going to be effective," he said.
"From what I've seen, the codes the
University puts forth don't accom-
plish anything."
Mavrick said the administration
should aid victims of harassment in
taking their cases through the courts.
"If the complaint has merit, then
the University should spend its
money taking it through the judi-
ciary," he said. "How many people
can you have making subjective de-
cisions? That's what the judicial
branch was set up for."

Roger Kosson
Kosson is the president of the
College Democrats.
Kosson believes education is the
key to ending discriminatory ha-
rassment. He said he believes the
University is using the policy as a
way to deflect attention from the is-
sues of education, minority recruit-
ment and retention.
"It's almost like (the administra-
tion) can say, 'Look, we're doing
something on racism."' Kosson said.
"An anti-discrimination policy deals
with the problem after it happens; if
you want to handle the problem, you
have to go to a deeper, tougher
"If you really want to deal with
the issue you have to do the tougher
things." He includes a mandatory
class requirement on ethnicity as one
of these tougher things.
Delro Harris and Barry Eng
Harris is chair of MSA's
Minority Affairs Commission
and co-chair of the
administration's student
advisory committee on the
policy. Eng is also a MAC
member. Both are staff
residents at Trotter House.
Eng and Harris said the Univer-
sity should be concentrating more ef-
fort on alternative ways to curb dis-

leave well enough alone," Harris

Daily Administration Reporter
Although student groups over the years have
argued for and against many University policies,
few characteristics have been consistent in these
Except for one - the plea for more student
input into University policy.
But deciding exactly what this input should be
and what form it should take is difficult. After
the University called for student input into a new
discriminatory harassment policy, The Daily
decided to put members of student groups into
the driver's seat. If they were making the
decision, what would they do?

The original discriminatory-harassment pol 0
icy was struck down in federal court as uncon-
stitutional Aug. 25. Judge Avern Cohn, who
presided over the case, said the policy was,
overly broad and vague. President James Dud=s
erstadt put an interim policy, which is muck
more specific than the original policy, in place
on Sept. 15. Duderstadt said he hopes to have a
new permanent policy into place by Jan. 1.

Both Eng and Harris think the
University should have a course re-
quirement which allows students to
choose from a selection of classes.
"We have to have education,"
Eng said. "The policy is too situa-
tional. We have to deal with the
problem where it begins."
Harris and Eng said they believe

the University ought to increase the
number of classes about minority
cultures, regardless of any require-
Harris and Eng noted that an anti-
discriminatory policy for faculty and
staff would have longer lasting and
more powerful effects on the cam-
"Students are transitory. We're
here and then we're gone. The ad-
ministrators, the faculty, the staff -
they're the ones who are going to be
here, they're the ones who set the
tone," Harris said.
"If they set a tone that (racism) is
all right then that's going to set the
tone for the University," he added.
"That's going to have a longer last-
ing effect regardless of the make-up
of the student population."

Billie Edwards
Edwards is the co-director of
the Lesbian and Gay Male's
Programs Office
Edwards said she is upset that the
interim policy does not include a
clause dealing with intimidating or
hostile environments.
"Until the environmental issue is
dealt with we're not going to get too
far," she said.
Edwards said she thinks education
is the key to solving the problem.
She said she hopes her office will
have access to all University areas
for educational programs, including
sports programs, residence halls, and

Orr is a member of the
Lesbian and Gay Rights
Organizing Committee. She is
also the president of Rackharr
Student Government and a
member of the

advisory committee on the
Orr said the University tends to
ignore lesbians and gay men as a
minority group on campus. She said
they are often excluded in policies
and speeches made by administration
"With the University policies irk
general, they tend to exclude sexual
orientation, or if it's in there they
tend not to enforce it."
