electing regents. A prospective
candidate must be nominated by one
political party at the state convention
and then popularly elected by the
citizens of Michigan.
Nielsen said this system causes
the regents to feel confused about
who they are responsible to when
"I feel my main responsibility is
to the citizens of Michigan," he said.
"The students that are here now are
not the same people who were here
when I started eight years ago. If the
students are the constituency, the
constituency keeps changing."
Nielsen added that he does
consider student concerns carefully
when making decisions.
The Michigan Student Assembly
recently formed a committee to
investigate the possibility of having
a student regent. Nielsen said he
thinks a student could be a regent if
the person is willing to make the
effort necessary to gain the support
of the political system.
"It's a serious commitment that
they would have to make," he said.
"It would be difficult for them to be
elected to the board more than once,
and they would have trouble with
relocation after graduation."
He said it would be impossible to
appoint a student as a ninth member
of the board.
"They would have to make a
ballot issue to be approved by the
entire state of Michigan in order for
that to be possible," he said.
Nielsen added that a regent's job
is more difficult than many people
"There are many different facets
of this job - the monthly meetings,
meeting with faculty and governance
board, meeting with students as
problems develop," he said. "Fund-
raising and community events are
happening all of the time. I think that
it is desirable to have a regental
presence at all of these events."
Kennedy said he thinks Nielsen
does a good job of fulfilling all of
regental term is an
advantage, but one
term is not enough
time. By the time you
really understand how
to make things
happen, you are one-
third through the
the responsibilities associated with
"Neal has been a conscientious
regent," he said. "I think he does his
homework really well and I think he
does a good job. I think he cares
about the students and making the
University the best that it can be."
Although Kennedy would not
speculate on Nielsen's chance of
reelection, he said he's "not
surprised that he is running again."
He added that since regents do
not have much name recognition
among voters, their elections tend to
"Conventional wisdom would
suggest that regental elections are
decided more by who is running at
the top of the party ticket than by the
individual regent," he said. "I'm sure
that some of them do develop a
Nielsen said he thinks that
regents are elected for many
"I think it's a combination of fac-
tors," he said. "One is on the coat-
tails of whoever is on top of the
ticket, but I think that some people
- especially University alumni and
people who have children going to
school here, and the students who do
vote - look at how the person has
voted in the past. The hardcore party
loyalists probably vote by a straight
ticket. Name recognition probably
plays a part."
He added that how a regent gets
elected is less important than what
the person does while in office.
"I think different people have
different outlooks on life," he said.
"I would like to hope that everyone
puts their community concerns at the
front of what they do."
Nielsen said he wants to remain
on the board to make the University
a better place for when the children
of the next century - including his
own, now ages 10, 12 and 14 - at-
tend the institution.
"I had a very great experience at
the University and I want an
opportunity to reinvest in the
community," he said.
