U-M launches $1 billion
by Jennifer Silverberg
Daily Administration Reporter
The Campaign for Michigan,
which seeks to raise $1 billion for
the university, will officially begin
tomorrow with a weekend of activi-
ties planned to educate volunteers
and thank donors.
- The campaign - the largest
fund-raising effort ever undertaken
by the U-M or any public university
- seeks to raise $850 million in
cash and pledges and $150 million in
bequests over a five year period.
"It's not life or death but it's es-
sential to maintain the cutting edge
of the university because the other
sources of support are diminishing,"
said U-M Provost and Vice
President for Academic Affairs
Gilbert Whitaker. "The campaign is
a key component of the things we
have to do to stay strong. It's one of
many but it's very important."
Money raised during the cam-
paign will be used for a variety of
programs. Associate Vice President
for Development and Executive
Director of the Campaign for
Michigan Joe Roberson said $340
million will be put toward endow-
ment support, $110 million will be
spent on facilities, and $400 million
will be used as expendable funds, to
be spent in a yet undetermined

Breaking down the numbers
The U-M hopes to raise $1 billion in the next five years through
the Campaign for Michigan. The $850 million administrators
plan to raise in endowments is broken down below.
$340 million - endowment support for faculty and students
$400 million - expendable funds to be spent annually
$110 million -facilities, including:
$45 million to build a Center of Undergraduate Education
$15 million for a new School of Social Work building
$25 million for a Cancer/ Geriatric Center for research and
$5 million for athletic facilities, including new tennis courts
and the renovation of the U-M golf course
$10 million for the renovation and remodeling of Hill
$10 million for an engineering center
U-M funding came from state sup-
port, 35 percent from tuition and
fees, 23 percent from federal sup-
port, and 14 percent from gifts and
Executive Director of University
Relations Walter Harrison said tu-
ition rates have almost reached the
ceiling and over the next decade,
state and federal appropriations are
likely to remain the same or decline.
"So the only place we can grow in
terms of revenue is in private giv-
ing," Harrison said.
Roberson agreed. "(President
Duderstadt) hopes we can get private
support to become an equal partner
with the other three parts because the
other three have just about reached
The campaign's initial goal was
$750 million until this past June
when a meeting of the National
Campaign Steering Committee, con-
sisting of members such as CBS
News correspondent Mike Wallace
and Regent emeritus Tom Roach,
increased the target to $1 billion.
"I was one of several who felt
that it was a realistic goal and one
that needed to be reached. We are in

*House hears sexual assault victims' 'bill of rights'

LSA senior Jennifer Cass was
sexually assaulted in her U-M resi-

coworker from her job at the univer-
When she told her supervisor that
she could not continue working with
the assailant, he told her to quit the
job. When the assailant registered
for all of her classes, an LSA dean
suggested she change her schedule.
"It was always, 'You quit. You
should move. You should change
classes,"' Cass said. "(Sexual as-
sault) is a huge problem. They treat
it like it's not a problem because it
will hurt their precious reputation."
Cass and other sexual assault

The proposed bill - modeled af-

the right to have such assaults
treated as serious crimes and inves-

The bill also would require that
survivors be offered counseling, be

The seventh floor of Medical Science Research
Building I will open today after U-M workers finish
cleaning up a low-level radioactive spill.
A tiny amount of phosphorous-32 was spilled in a
laboratory last weekend and unknowingly tracked all
over the seventh floor.
Use of radioactive materials in the lab has been
temporarily halted until the U-M feels staff members
are adequately trained with maintenance procedures.
"They won't handle materials until the Radiation
Safety Service is satisfied that everyone is following
procedures when doing radiation surveys after radioac-
tive matter," said Joe Owsley, director of U-M News
and Information Services.
The U-M held a forum yesterday for building users
about the spill and radiation procedures in general.
Researchers who handle radioactive materials are
required to scan the work area afterward to ensure that
none has spilled.
Owsley said Tuesday that he suspects a researcher
accidentally spilled some of the P-32 and did not sur-
vey the area.
The amount of P-32 - a few drops containing
about half a millicurie of radiation - does not pose a
health hazard, U-M and government safety officials
