body, it is still below the Black
population in the United States,
which is 12.1 percent, according to
the 1990 census. Michigan's 1990
Black citizens comprised 13.9 per-
cent of the population.
At a press briefing to release this
year's enrollment figures, Univer-
sity President James Duderstadt in-
dicated that the University has never
established a specific number to
reach, but rather is interested in in-
creasing the rates of enrollment of
minority students.
"We have never set quantitative
goals," he said. "Groups have tried

'1 feel this Is a step in the right direction, but it's
still not representative.'

to force that on us."
The University also released an
update on the Michigan Mandate,
which Duderstadt implemented five
years ago as a commitment to diver-
sity at the University.
Lisa Quiroga, public opinion
chair of the Socially Active Latino
Students Association (SALSA), also
criticized the University's effort.
"I feel this is a step in the right
direction, but it's still not represen-
tative," Quiroga said. "I think there's
a lot of tension about

multiculturalism on campus."
Gordon called many of the
University's multicultural programs
"superficial measures" that do not
give Black students more power or
help increase retention rates.
"This whole movement toward
multiculturalism is not empower-
ing Black students as much as people
would believe," Gordon said. "We
think there needs to be a lot more
support systems in place and a lot
more focus on retention."
Graduation rates at the Univer-
sity show retention of minority stu-
dents is significantly lower than
other students.
According to the University's
statistical profile for the academic
years 1982-83 through 1992-93, the

percentage of Black students gradu-
ating after four years is roughly half
the percentage of white students
graduating after the same time pe-
riod: 33.8 percent versus 65.3 per-
During the press conference,
Duderstadt also said the University's
goal is to reflect the racial makeup
of America. "Today we have the
most representative faculty and staff
in the history of the University."
The five-year report on the Man-
date states 190 new faculty of color
have been hired to tenured or ten-
ure-track positions.
However, the number of tenured
ortenure-track faculty members was
237 in 1987 and is now 338, a net
increase of 101 faculty of color. The
other 89 faculty members of color
were lost through attrition, trans-
fers and retirement.
Tenured and tenure-track faculty
of color makes up 12.3 percent of
the total.
Professors of color make up 8.8
percent of the total, while assistant
professors make up 17.7 percent.

in MSA offices Wednesday night.
"I really can't say that effected the
results, but a lot of people were drunk
that were counting the votes," the elec-

mixing drinks in Subway's cups and
the smell was on everyone's breath."
Kight, who was present while the
votes were being counted, said he was

didn't happen," Kight said
Payne denied also the allegations of
alcohol consumption. He said mem-

fraternity hired by the assembly, were
responsible for counting the ballots but
he was unaware of whether they were

MSA's behavior was careless.
With the addition of five more seats

lawmakers rejected a bid to soften

It was approved on a voice vote after
the House voted, 246-182, to reject an
effort to send the bill back to committee
and strip out language opposed by abor-

Hurrying to get the bill to President
Clinton before Congress begins its
Thanksgiving recess, supporters kept
the measure free ofcontroversial amend-
ments so it wouldn't differ much from
the Senate version passed earlier this

"The library is expected to be op-

MacAdam said.
Besides the new science libary,
the second floor will be expanded and
will hold a brand new microcomputer
center, University reserves, a video
library and small group study rooms
for student use.
Connector bridges will link the
library to Harlan Hatcher Graduate

"Especially in Michigan's winter
weather, I think that will be a big plus
for students," MacAdam said.

"I truly believe the UGLi will not
