University President James
Duderstadt discussed the present and
future role of the Residential College
with the college's students, faculty,
and administrators over a cafeteria
dinner of lasagna yesterday evening.
The meeting was held to inform
the President of the RC's future
goals and how they might converge
with his plans to diversify and enrich
the University community, said RC
Director Herb Eagle.
Among these goals were
increasing minority enrollment,
appointing more RC minority
faculty, and enriching the RC
curriculum.
The Residential College is a
small school within the LSA
college, which provides students
with a more personalized education
in the liberal arts. It emphasizes
studies in languages, the humanities,
and the social sciences, through the
use of smaller classes and more
individualized attention for students.
"We want to attract, retain, and
educate well a multicultural student
population," Eagle said . "We
wanted to be in (Duderstadt's)
thoughts... Some of the things we
would like to do would cost a lot of

money".
Eagle said Duderstadt was
"understanding of the values of the
living and learning experience which
we (the RC) provide here."
Duderstadt commented that the
RC "is the kind of experience I
would love to give to every student."
"We wanted to be in
(Duderstadt's)
thoughts... Some of
the things we would
like to do would cost

-Herb Eagle,
director of the
Residential College
Although the meeting was
generally informal and good spirited,
not everyone agreed with what
Duderstadt said. Julie Enszer, an RC
senior attending the dinner, disagreed
with Duderstadt's view that the
University is a bargain for in-state
students and well below peer
institution fees for out-of-state
students.

LaGROC criticizes an ROTC

by Mike Sobel
Daily Staff Writer
The relationship between the
University and its Reserve Officers
Training Program Corps (ROTC)
chapters has remained placid despite
the controversy at other colleges
about the military's policy of not
admitting homosexuals.
Article 39.10 of the Department
of Defense Policy cites homosexuals
as a "security risk" and states that
"homosexuality is incompatible
with military service, that it affects
the ability of the military to estab-
lish discipline and to maintain
morale." This policy applies to all
branches of the military at all levels,
including ROTC.
Controversy erupted at the Uni-
versity of Minnesota when the stu-

dent president told the campus paper
that "I can't understand why
(homosexuals) would want to sub-
ject themselves to the ridicule of be-
ing in the armed forces." Several
groups consequently tried to impeach
him.
Col. Peter Buley of the Univer-
sity's Air Force ROTC, however,
said, to his knowledge, this has not
been an issue at the University.
Homosexuals can attend ROTC
classes, he added, but they can't go
through the program and be com-
missioned. "These are called 'special
students.' No information about
sexual preference is required," he
said.
Brian Durrance, a Lesbian and
Gay Rights Organizing Committee
(LaGROC) organizer, said a woman
has just been asked to leave the

ROTC program because of her par-
ticipation in LaGROC.
Durrance said the group has been
working for some time to change the
University's Board of Regents bylaw
14.06. The bylaw prohibits discrim-
ination based on race, color, creed,
gender, religion or ethnic origin, at
the University, but does not include
a clause on "sexual preference."
Durrance maintains "one of the
reasons the regents haven't changed
that by-law is because they want to
keep ROTC on campus."
Durrance also said the CIA has
been prohibited from recruiting at
the law school because of a similar
policy towards homosexuals.
"Our position," he added, "has
been that if you are openly gay, you
are not a security risk. (ROTC) must
allow gay men and lesbians to par-

policy
ticipate. We insist the University
protect us. If ROTC be banned from
campus, so be it."
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Ar-
bor) said, however, "The position of
the University is entirely in line
with the U.S. and state constitu-
tions" and the ROTC "provides op-
portunities and services to the young
people of Michigan," such as schol-
arships.
But Durrance said, "If you are
openly gay, you can't get an
(ROTC) scholarship."
Greg Martin, the Department of
Defense Secretary of Public Affairs,
said while there are several studies
being conducted in Washington on
the influence of gays on the mili-
tary, he doesn't think the policy will
ever change.
