"Some of the things they ques-

tips... and entertainment types of
things that are questionably related
to research and questionable from a
public administrative standpoint."
The indirect cost recovery rate is
negotiated by a university and either
HHS or the Department of Defense,
establishing a fixed percentage for
costs not related directly to re-
search expenditures to be compen-
sated by the Federal Government.
The University's indirect cost
recovery rate is 57 percent for fiscal
year 1992. So if the University re-
ceives a $100,000 research grant, it
receives $57,000 from the Federal
Government to cover costs indi-
rectly related to its research.
Regent Philip Power (D-Ann
Arbor) said that out of the $300,000
being questioned by the HHS, he
found only $50,000 that could be
considered a questionable use of re-
"You don't like to see any mis-
takes, but in the context of the
politicization, in the context the
draft report was leaked, and in the
context of the amount of activity
that goes on at the University, I
think we came out looking damn
well," Power said.
Of the $50,000 which Power
found questionable he said, "You'll
never fix (the $50,000), someone is
always going to screw up."

'U' celebration marks Hispanic heritage
by Robert Patton
Daily Minority Issues Reporter
"Latinos Moving Beyond
Boundaries" is the theme of this
year's Hispanic Heritage celebra-
tion, which features more than a
month of speakers, films, music, and
dance, beginning tomorrow.
"The main purpose of the event
is to showcase and share our contri-
butions to history," said Kathy
Berdy, Hispanic representative to
Minority Student Services.
"By the year 2,000, Hispanics
will be the largest minority in the
country," she said, adding that many
Americans know little about
"We'd particularly like to edu-
cate students about the diversity
within Hispanic culture," Berdy
said. "There are Hispanics from
Central America, Latin America,
and the Caribbean, and Hispanic-
Americans who have lived here all
"Many people don't know about
these differences," she added.
At the same time, Berdy said, she
wants the "concept of unity" to be a
key part of the celebration.
"(Hispanics) have the common
bond of our language, and we need to
use this to move forward as a peo-
ple, beyond the boundaries set by
others and by history," she said.
The celebration kicks off tomor-
row night at Trotter house with a
Puerto Rican Bienvenida dance and
an informal talk with noted film
director Marcus DeLeon. Events run
until Oct. 19.
On Oct. 2, Carlos Fuentes, one of
the most respected and distin-
guished Hispanic authors today,
will speak on "The Buried Mirror:
Reflections on the Culture of Spain
and the New World."
Other highlights include lec-
tures on "Bilingual Education Laws
and their Effect on Learning," on
Sept. 20, "Latinos and AIDS," on
Sept. 26, and "Legal and Political
Perspectives on Puerto Rico's
Colonial Status," on Oct. 8.

For the past three years, the Uni-
versity has followed an agenda to
increase diversity known as the
Michigan Mandate. In a new state-

this week, President James Duder-

"The fundamental goal of the
Michigan Mandate is to make the
University of Michigan a leader
known for the racial and ethnic di-

staff," Duderstadt wrote.
The revised edition of the man-
date reports a 39 percent increase in
minority enrollment at the Univer-
sity during the past three years.
"The indication is that the rate
has been going up every year," Mat-
lock said. "We of course still have a
long way to go."
The revised mandate compares

example, is 13.9 percent Black and

comparison, the University was 7.1

University officials said there is
no cap on the number of minorities
they will try to recruit.

the greater society," Shaw said.

HOW WISC IS DIFFERENT FROM MOST OVERSEAS PROGRAMS:
" Accepted students receive admissions letters (and later transcripts) directly
from an Oxford (or Cambridge) college.
students are directly enrolled as full students of the Oxford college.
. Qualified early applicants may share a co-ed Student Residence associated
with St. Catherine's College, Oxford (fully integrated with British students).
t Students accepted before November 1 (for the Winter Term) or before May 1
(for next year) are guaranteed housin with British s nts.
" Students will NOT be taught in (and receive transcripts from) an American
college operating in Oxford. WISC is one of the few completely integrated
(academically and in housing) overseas programs in the UK.
" Previous students in your field will speak to you on the phone.
