Some campus leaders are accus-
ing a new organization intending to
unite all University student organi-
zations of shutting out interested po-
tential members.
The Student Leader Board's goal
is to coordinate the leaders of the
largest of the more-than-600 inde-
pendent student organizations on
campus. Board members said the
group hopes to combine efforts of
many student organizations to serve
University students.
According to a prepared state-
ment by board members, the group
plans "to serve as a unified voice for
the student community with the
power derived from a large con-
stituency of diverse student organi-
zations, and to coordinate the efforts
and resources of these organizations
with the purpose of making student
leadership more effective."
Last fall, 20 students imple-
mented the Student Leader Board -
still in its development stages -
when they became concerned about
the disjointed nature of University
student organizations.

After a series of informal meet-
ings over the past term, the board
applied for a charter from the
Michigan Student Assembly earlier
this month.
In an effort to recruit members,
the board sent out 60 applications to
the leaders of large campus organi-
zations. Applications were also
available for other interested leaders.
Board members are looking to till 20
However, some campus leaders
criticized both the concept of the
board and its member recruitment
Joey Faust, president of the Pan-
hellenic Association, said she is
concerned that the board will be too
limited to represent the diversity of
campus student organizations.
"If there are 600 student leaders
interested in having their opinions
heard and are willing to give their
time and energy then these people
should not be excluded because they
represent student interests," Faust
She added that, while the idea of
"student leaders networking to co-

MSA Rep. Roger DeRoo, at-t
tended some board meetings before
deciding not to apply.
He said the board appeared to
lack purpose adding that it could not
be "a positive change agent."
Polk Wagner, Interfraternity
Council (IFC) president, said he ap-
plied because he saw the board as a
"chance for major student organiza-
tions to talk about common issues ...
schedule joint programs ... and net-
le added, however, that he is
concerned because the applications'
did not set criteria by which board
members will be chosen.
Student Leader Board co-founder
Bruce Namerow, former IFC presi-
dent, admitted that the board made
some mistakes in its recruitment
"We are in a learning stage right
now ... We are willing to accept any
constructive criticism and will
change in any direction necessary,"
he said.

of key central human resource
activities," the task force report
While the new administrative po-
sition is likely to effect change, most
University officials said they are
unsure what that change will be.
"That depends on the vision and
experience of this person coming in.
A lot is going to be left for the deci-
sion-making of the new director of
affirmative action and human re-
sources," Myers said.
But employees agreed much of
the change will be in the Office of
Affirmative Action because the other
two offices have already been
Dumas questioned one change
that has already been proposed -
the relocation of some affirmative
action and personnel offices from the
Fleming Building on Central
Campus to the Wolverine Tower

Applicants said the pressure is
greater because they are forced to
wait until March to make definite
housing arrangements.
"The late date not only impedes
my housing options, but it makes
rejection even more harsh," said
LSA sophomore Edithann Velez, a
current applicant. "If they could
possibly start the process before
Christmas vacation, the rejected ap-
plicants could have more housing
Although Velez said she plans to
live in the dorms again if she is not
offered a resident advisor (RA) posi-
tion, she noted that most applicants
she has talked with would live off
campus if rejected.
Levy said the Housing Division
has made efforts to reduce the stress
created by the waiting period.
"Up to two years ago RA candi-
dates were not notified until the first

Stacy Davis, another founder of
the board and former president of
the Student Alumni Council, said the
applications were designed to insure
that board members would be
committed to the group and its work.
She said the group chose to have 20
members to prevent things from get
ting out of hand.
Davis said the Student Leader
Board will function as "a support
group for student leaders who are
often overwhelmed with extra-cur-
ricu lars."

She added that the group will
serve as a liaison between students
and the University administration
through meeting with its advisor,
Vice President for Student Affairs 0
Maureen Hartford.
Both Namerow and Davis said
the board will not take the place of
MSA and does not intend to formu-
late policies or codes.
building on the corner of South State
Street and Eisenhower Parkway.
"It's easier for me to walk across9
the street than to drive to other facili-
ties. I think travel time is going to
have to be included in everything we
do. Will that be efficient?" Dumas
Dolan-Greene said the relocation
of the offices, like most of the pro-
posed changes, is still up in the air.
"The University has bought the
Wolverine Tower building. There
are some plans in the works for mov-
ing several offices. Who's going to
move, and when they're going to
move is still in the preliminary
stages," she said.
Myers and Dumas said they don't
think their office will receive less at-
tention when they stop reporting di-
rectly to the president.
"The president's office has been
very supportive. I'm still looking for.

they have been in the past," Dumas
week of April," Levy said. "We
were heavily criticized for putting
people in a bind in relation to off-
campus housing. People were
spending too much time on being. a
Levy added that applicants who
are not offered a position can use the
regular services that the Housing
Division offers in finding off-cam-
pus housing, or - if they wish -
live in a University residence hall.
But some students said the prop,
lem of the waiting period is un-
solved because leases are typically
signed at the start of the year.
"There's an element of risk in-
volved because most people sign
leases in January and early Febru-
ary," said Paul Danao, a resident di-
rector in Mosher-Jordan and a first-
year student in the School of Public
Health. "Many qualified people fear
going through the process because
they may be stuck with no housing
options if they are rejected."


Namerow said some campus
leaders complained because they felt
that, as heads of major organiza-
tions, their inclusion on the board
should be automatic.
