U-M Sexual Assault Prevention
and Awareness Center (SAPAC) di-
rector Debra Cain said the center is
in full support of legislation that en-
sures the rights of victims.
She said many of the provisions
in the bill - such as the right to
counseling services on campus -
are already provided by the U-M and
that the existence of SAPAC is a
credit to the university.
However, she said while she is
impressed with what SAPAC has
done, there is always room for im-
"SAPAC is one of the landmark
programs of its type," she said. "But
that doesn't mean we couldn't use
more money for further outreach and
If Cain could ask for one thing
from the U-M, she said it would be
another professional counselor at
SAPAC. She said Kata Issari -
presently the only counselor - is
spread thin by the seven to 10 stu-
dents who come to the center for
help each month.
Wild agreed that responsibility
extends beyond a counseling center.
"It is a wonderful organization, but
(the U-M) hides behind SAPAC,"
Director of Planning and
Communication Shirley Clarkson
defended the administration's sup-
port of SAPAC.
"SAPAC is a priority and has
been given very strong support since
its beginning," Clarkson said.
In addition to supporting
SAPAC, Clarkson said the U-M is
fighting sexual assault by training
campus security officers to handle
sexual assault situations.
Furthermore, Clarkson said the
proposed Statement of Students'
Rights and Responsibilities will help
because it deals with peer harass-
However, Cass criticized the
statement's policy that a student ju-
diciary be responsible for determin-
"Isn't it the university's respon-
sibility? I feel the university is con-
tinually passing the buck," she said.
The requirements set forth in the
state bill are not new ones to
Michigan colleges and universities.
The federal government has
passed three separate laws - each
of which threatens a withholding of
funds - to set provisions regarding
sexual assault such as holding hear-
Clarkson said that, while she
welcomes the fact that each campus
implements the law as it deems ap-
propriate, it becomes difficult when
the government threatens to restrict
However, Cain said this aspect of
the laws serves as an "important re-
inforcement for awareness of sexual
assault on campuses" since it is un-
likely that many colleges and uni-
versities would take the initiative on
Both the Michigan Collegiate
Coalition - a statewide student lob-
bying group - and the Michigan
Conference of the National
Organization for Women endorsed
the proposed legislation.
If passed, the bill would go into
effect on Jan. 1, 1993.

The U-M will also remove some

be instructed on how
to handle them safely.
The U-M's Radiation Safety
Service and its Radiation Policy
Committee will investigate the spill.
The Nuclear Regulatory
Commission sent three members to
the U-M Tuesday to oversee the
cleanup and conduct surveys of their
own. They will issue a report in sev-
eral weeks, Strasma said.

themselves to raise that money and
Harrison said he thinks $1 billion
is a realistic goal.
"I think that it's in the Michigan
tradition to go for the best and I
think we set our sights high and I
think we can achieve it," Harrison
Roberson said U-M has one of
the largest living alumna popula-
tions, more than 350,000, from
which to appeal for donations.
"I think we have a large untapped
potential in terms of numbers and we
have as good a commodity in higher
education to put on the market as
any university in the country,"
Administrators agreed that the
economic future of the university is
largely dependent on the campaign.
"Bleak is not accurate, but any
real possibilities of keeping this a
top university are going todepend
on how well we can do on the cam-
paign," Harrison said.
Administrators said they did not
expect the recession to adversely af-
"It hasn't hurt us too badly yet,"
Roberson said. "If we've done this
well in two years in a bad economy
we will certainly push to make the
rest of the goal."
Roberson said it was not unusual
for the U-M to start its fund-raising
efforts two years before the begin-
ning of the official campaign.
"The theory is to have one-third
(of the goal) in before the official
announcement and we announce
Friday what our two year total is. It
will be in excess of $280 million,"
'The campaign is a key
component of the
things we have to do
to stay strong.'
- Gilbert Whitaker
Although there is a general plan
for the billion dollars, Harrison said
donors of large amounts generally
stipulate where their donations
should go. "At the moment it is hard
to say what we will be able to raise
money for and what we won't," he
Whitaker said, "The combination
of our needs and the donors interests
determine where the actual gifts will
go. I can't say how we will hit it but
the things we're most committed.to,
we'll find a way to do."
The U-M has had two large fund-
raising efforts in the past: the "55M"
campaign of 1964 and a Campaign
for Michigan, launched in 1983, that
raised $187 million.

Gore toured several classes at the
