of Black graduates

Daily Staff Reporter
The Michigan Mandate's effect
at the University has been demon-
strated by the highest minority en-
rollment ever, University President
James Duderstadt said at the All-
Class Reunion of Black Graduates
But alumni say more still needs
to be done.
The Black Alumni Association
chose the Mandate, which is an ef-
fort on the part of the University to
increase minority enrollment and
success, as a theme for the reunion
and a priority for the upcoming year.
Duderstadt said minorityen-
rollment, at 26 percent, is the high-
est it has been since 1976. He
pointed to this as a preliminary ef-
fect of the Michigan Mandate.
DeiadracDowns, education chair
of the Black Alumni Association,
said more needs to be done. "We
take too long to notify students, and
_ we don't have enough minority
scholarship money available. By the
time we make an offer to a student,
they've already got a better one
from somewhere else," she said.
Duderstadt also said the
- University's retention rate of mi-
nority students is two out of three.
"In terms of other universities in
the Midwest, we are the leader in
this area," he said.
"That figure is still too low,"
Downs said. "We need to make sure
that students get the support they
need to stay at school."
Downs pointed to several pro-
grams developed by the Black
Alumni Association designed to
give the Michigan Mandate a boost.
"The Martin Luther King
Scholarship Program we offer pro-
vides money for minority stu-
dents," she said. "Currently we of-
fer $1,000 to 29 incoming freshmen
a year. It's a one-year program now,
but we hope to make it continuing."

Downs said the association is
also concerned with increasing the
minority retention level. "We offer
a mentor program that provides
wisdom for minority students from
people who have been there.
However, we need more volun-
teers," Downs said.
She added that by making the
Mandate a focus of the All-Class
Black Reunion, the association
hoped to raise awareness of their
need for volunteers.
Tom Richardson, the Black
Alumni Association's student liai-
son, coordinates the association's
programs and directs students to the
resources available to them.
Richardson said there are many
support systems for minority stu-
dents. "They only have to know
where to look. That is where the
Black Alumni Association can
help," he said.
Downs said, "We really want
minority students to know that
they can go to the Black Alumni
Association for support. We are
there and available."

The University of Iowa knows
little about Lu, except that he was
from the People's Republic of
China and "seemed to be a loner,"
"The student who was killed
was very active and well-known, as
opposed to the gunman, who was
less-known," she said..
Fritz said the shootings have left
the university community
"The mood is one of complete
shock and grief. The crime rate in
Iowa City is low - things like this
just don't happen here," she said.
The last two shootings occurred
in Jessup Hall, about three blocks
away from the physics building.
Some students said they feel that
stronger campus security could have
prevented the second set of shoot-

As if to underscore the high

"I think the campus security here
is a little group that arrests drunk
people on the weekends," said Iowa
junior Lance Van Houten. "They are
not much of a preventive force for

"A lot of us are trying to justify
it as a one-time thing," Potter said.
Fritz said the university has can-
