financial interest in not divesting
- stubbornly refused to divest,
and even moved their meetings
from Ithaca to New York City -
four hours away.
Frank and the Board also spent
the summer rewriting the code,
"To make sure students couldn't
do what they had successfully
done with impunity again in the
future," according to Lyons.
"That's when we blew the
whistle," he said. "There was
tremendous faculty outrage on
this issue." The faculty assembly
spoke out, claiming the changes
were instituted without following
the guidelines for changing it
within the code itself.
One of the most significant
alterations Frank proposed would
have put the hearing boards,
"right in the President's back
pocket," said Lyons. "There
would have been no way [the
hearing boards] could have gone
against him the way they had
before."
The faculty forced Frank to
play by the rules, and although he
got most of what he wanted
anyway (the rules weren't really
that hard on him in the first
place), it took a year of strategic
manipulation to silence the
faculty and students and put the
changes in place.
The Board voted not to divest,
and it still hasn't.
U..
There are a number of lessons
in the story, both for President
Jim and for students and faculty
at Michigan.
The first is about the risks of an
independent University police
force. Frank's deputized police
force arrested all those people
without really caring if the
charges they pressed ever came to

anything. Their objective was to
stop the demonstrations, and they
did.
The State of Michigan is now
considering a bill which would
allow our public universities to
create their own independent
police forces - charged with the
duty of enforcing not only state
law, but also the regulations of the
university, even those created on
the spur of the moment and
imposed by the President under
the emergency provision of the
regental bylaws.
The risk of gratuitous arrest and
harassment under those
conditions is obvious.
For President Jim, the lesson
presents a combination of
ruthlessness and public
manipulation. Jim's been doing
his best to quell student
opposition on campus, with
moves like the creation of the
task force to limit to
"appropriate" the forms of free
speech allowed on the Diag, and
the unilateral imposition of the
discriminatory harassment policy
last term.
But he can't pull off the suave
aloofness of his Ivy League idol;
imperial disdain for his
constituents is more forced,
embarrassing screwups are more
prevalent.
And as for Frank, he's tickled
pink. Or, more accurately, "Very
touched and very grateful and
very honored."
He has yet to decide on the
topic of his talk, though he's used
to commencement speeches. "We
don't give honorary degrees," he
said, "so I do the commencement
talk every year."
That's another change we could
do without.
