Faculty members want to be con-
suited before the administration
makes changes in staff benefits, they
said during the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
(SACUA) meeting yesterday.
SACUA continued its discussion
on communication between the fac-
ulty and administration during its
meeting. SACUA has been com-
plaining about the communication
gap with the University for several

"We are concerned that benefits
may be targeted by some people in
university administration because it
is a cost area easy to cut or change.
... Changes in our benefits would
seriously harm the recruitment and
retention of faculty and send a nega-
tive message about our institution to
the larger academic community," the

One proposal called for the for-

evaluations would not focus on the
administrator, but rather the aca-

or she is responsible.
"I don't see this as an attack on
the individual. Take it in the sense as
it's given, to help the overall struc-
ture, said SACUA member reggie

Coalition denounces police
behavior toward Blacks
by Scott Roush
The Coalition of Students Against
Deputization (CSAD) denounced the
University's deputization of the campus
police force yesterday, which it said has
treated African Americans on campus poorly
in the past.
At a news conference, the group also pre-
sented a list of demands to the University
Board of Regents. One of the demands asks
the University to reform the Michigan Union
admission policy which requires student
identification for entrance on weekends.
CSAD is composed of the Black Student
Union (B SU), the Progressive People of
Color and Students Halting Institutionalized
LSA sophomore Amy Ellis, a BSU mem-
ber, said the policy adversely affects Blacks
because many Black Greek organizations
hold their meetings in the Union.
"The administration is targeting Black stu-
dents by checking identification when
entering the Union," she said.
CSAD also criticized incidents occurring
last year where unarmed African-American
men were chased through University
buildings and African-American women were
illegally searched while white women were
As mandated by recent state legislation,
the regents have scheduled two public
hearings about deputization later this week.
CSAD plans to rally at the first hearing
Feb. 19 at the Michigan League.
The gioup called the hearings a "farcical
ex post facto formality." It contended that the
decision has already been made by the
regents to deputize the campus police, so they
will probably not change their minds this
CSAD also claimed that the University
has gone to great lengths to prevent complete
public knowledge of the hearings, their exact
location and time, and the process that has
led to deputization.
First-year Rackham student Colin Leach
said, "We want student support and involve-
ment from student organizations." The
Rackham Student Government is the only
student organization currently supporting
Walter Harrison, executive director of
University Relations, said the regents are not
likely to change their minds on the issue of
police deputization. "The purpose of the
hearing is to switch the authority of
deputization from the Washtenaw County
sheriff to the regents," he said.

deputization yesterday afternoon in the Michigan Union.
SRC will not join anti-deputization protests
by Christopher Scherer
Daily Staff Reporter
The Student Rights Commission
(SRC) will take a hands-off ap-
proach in the anti-deputization
protests so it can concentrate more
on the formation of the campus po-
lice oversight board, SRC.members
said last night.
At a discussion session with
about 20 people, the SRC came un-
der fire for its failure to support
groups against the deputization of
But the SRC is not taking an ab-
solute position because it does not
want to lose its voice in the forma-
tion of the police oversight board,
said SRC Vice Chair Robert
The SRC's, position is that if
deputization occurs, it wants a strong
oversight board specifically set up to
work with the police on issues of
power, particular grievances and
hiring, VanHouweling said.
Although LSA sophomore
Carsten Hohnke said he understood
the SRC's position, he disagreed
with its refusal to stir up student
"My biggest concern is that the
SRC is staying away from organiz-
ing student support. It is not organiz-
ing any student mandate for pro-
posal," he said.
VanHouweling said the SRC
tried to get other groups to partici-
pate but they neglected to come to
the Michigan Student Assembly
To counter heated skepticism at
the meeting about the SRC's view
which critics allege is not fully rep-
resentative of the majority of stu-
dents, VanHouweling said, "I don't
think on the whole we are taking a
position that people oppose."
SRC Chair Michael Warren said,
"The focus of the SRC needs to be
that we are ensuring that we have a
safe campus and police are trained
properly for that they are sensitive to
the unique needs of the University
and that they are accountable to the
Students voiced concerns last
night over student apathy.
"Unfortunately, I think apathy
will ruin any deputization process of
the students' interest. I don't think
students want it but they are going to
get it because they don't care," LSA
junior Mark Vanderborgh said.
