Antieau, who reported to work

Student Affairs and South Quad until
her replacement is chosen. She said
she is ready for her new position.
"I was ready for a change. I've

'U' adds LGMPO name to Union directory
by Karen Talaski
Daily Gender Issues Reporter
With the beginning of the new
year, some student offices in the
Michigan Union have a new look.
In addition to freshly-painted
walls and new carpeting on the sec-
ond floor, the third floor wall was
repainted to include the Lesbian Gay
Male Program Office's (LGMPO)
LGMPO's name was not on the
wall when the painting was redone
in December, raising some concerns
about the office's future.
The changes were implemented
during exam week and during the
The third floor wall now lists the
Dean of Students, Ombudsman,
Counseling Services, LGMPO, and
Michigan Student Assembly. MSA
and LGMPO's acronyms were used
in order to fit the wall space.
As reported last December,
LGMPO - a counseling, informa-
tional, and support organization for
the lesbian, gay male, and bisexual
community - was omitted from
the wall despite its 12-year resi-
dency in the Union.
LGMPO coordinator Billie
Edwards said she was pleased the
name was added over break, but said
she would have liked to have
LGMPO's full name spelled out on
both walls instead of its acronym.
"Part of the problem is when they
designed the sign they had no inten-
tion to put LGMPO up on the wall,"
Edwards said. "(The wall directory)
works well if you know what
'LGMPO' stands for.
"It's a good sign that (the admin-
istration) responded in a positive
way to the needs of the community,"
Edwards said. "It's great that we're
up there but I wish our name had
been fully stated."
Edwards said she felt the atten-
tion the sign received has been posi-
tive because "any changes made by
or to the LGMPO can now be moni-
tored by the community."
Richard Carter, associate dean of
student affairs, said he felt it was
important for the gay and lesbian
community to feel comfortable
working with the administration.
"We want to build bridges within
our communities. I understand their
concerns," Carter said. "The signs
on the wall are very important to
them and very imnportant to us."
Carter said the University's
Office Student Affairs received "a
fair amount of communication" in
regard to the issue of the sign and
the future of the LGMPO.
"Anything the administration
does will enhance our services to the
gay and lesbian community," Carter
said. "There are more pressing is-
sues than the sign (to address)."
LGMPO coordinator Ai Toy
said he was also glad the sign was
"I just hope the constituency and
the office would be consulted if (the
administration) makes any further
changes," Toy said.
Other changes took place on the
