AATU
Continued from page 1
two specific organizations - OCHO
and the Housing Law Reform Project
(HLRP) of Student Legal Service.
"The purpose of the Off-Campus
Housing Office is to help students, not
to lobby for specific tenant legislation,"
he said. "HLRP is in the business of
trying to effect pro-tenant legislation."
Greenberg said these groups make
AATU unnecessary.
"These two organizations will take
the place of the tenants' union," he said.
"Neitheronedoes the same things as the
tenants' union, but combined they pro-
vide all of the AATU's services."
But AATU staff member Pattrice
Maurer said this is not the case.
"Craig's allegations that the Hous-
ing Law Reform Project and the ten-
ants' union are the same is ridiculous
and untrue," she said.
Maurer saidAATUand HLRPwork
well together, but neither is expendable.
"Wereferstudentsto(HLRP)ifthey
need a lawyer," she said. "They send us
students who don't need to take legal
action. One of our main goals is to keep
students out of court."
Maurer added that HLRP distrib-
utes a large number of tenants' union
literature to students who come in for
consultation.
Larry Fox, director of the Housing
Law Reform Project, said the redirect-
ing of money would cause problems tor
students who do not want to pursue
legal action to consult the project.
"It seems to me that it will take a lot
longer and be a lot more expensive for
students to get their cases resolved," he
said.
He added that he thinks the tenants'
union is better suited to serve students'
needs.
"It is not necessary for all cases to
come to the Housing Law Reform
Project," he said. "It's kind of like tak-
ing a jet from Ann Arbor to Detroit."
Fox said the HLRP would not be
able to handle the overflow of students
with landlord problems.
Maurer said the Off-Campus Hous-
ing Office would also fail to accomodate
students. But with OCHO, she said, the
problems are a lot more serious than a
long wait or a large bill.

She said the office represents a con-
flict of interest because the department
acts as a landlord for students living in
the residence halls and family housing.
"Itis not in the best interest for the
housing office tohave strong pro-tenant
legislation," she said. "Students whogo
there with a problem will not receive
advice that is in their best interests."
Mary Perrydore, a senior housing
advisor in OCHO, acknowledged this
conflict.
"We do house students and we have
an off-campus housing office, which
represents a conflict of interest," she
said.
MaureralsocriticizedOCHO'sprac-
tice of posting available homes and
apartments for all landlords who use the
University's lease.
"The University has a vested inter-
est in gaining and maintaining good
relations with the business community
in this town," she said. She added that
this closeness to landlords may prevent
the office from fairly mediating land-
lord-tenant disagreements.
Perrydore said this is, in fact, the
case.
"It is difficult sometimes to preserve
our objectivity during our mediation,"
she said. "But we work very hard to-
ward that."
Maurer said University Housing
Department officials mighthave played
a major role in Greenberg's decision to
cease funding to the tenants' union by
feeding him false information andreas-
suring him with insincere promises.
"It wouldn't surprise me if they had
ahand in this because they have always
tried to get rid of the tenants' union,"
she said.
Greenberg said he has had consider-
able contact with housing officials after
making his decision to cut funding to
AATU.
"They know exactly what is going
on and I've kept them up to date on
what's happening," he said, adding that
he has spoken with both Perrydore and
Housing Director Robert Hughes, who
indicated Perrydore could speak for the
office.
Perrydore denied Maurer's allega-
tions.
"I think this office has given Craig
accurate information about the things
we do," she said. "We have been hon-
est."

STATEMENT
Continued from page 1
But new students aren't satisfied
with these efforts.
"I think we gota really vague expla-
nation," said LSA first-year student Rie
Watanabe.
LSA first-year student Jennifer
Lanxner agreed.
"I don't remember ever hearing
about it at orientation," she said. "I
don't think it's going to affect me here."
LSA first-year student Mike
Rajendran added, "I think it's pretty
vague, and honestly, I can't remember
that much about it. If it was something
that they stressed, I would probably
remember it a little better."
Some students appreciated the
administration's programs.
"I though it was good because they
have (workshops) here instead of let-
ting you find out about (the statement)
yourself," saidAllison Kuscenda, a first
year Music student.

She added, "I don't foresee having
any problems that I would need to use it
but it's good to know it's there."
First year LSA student Amanda
Aitken said she feels the same way.
"I think they should have had more
students involved in writing it, butIalso
think thatit'sgood that the University is
recognizing that there are problems like
sexual harassment and racial discrimi-
nation on campus and that there's a
place where students can go to take care
of things like that," she said.
Other students had mixed feelings.
"I think it's a good thing, but it'snot
something I ever thought about. I guess
they could stress it a little more because
it seems pretty vague," said LSA first-
year student Lauren Rubin.
First-year Engineering student
Alyson Mofkwa said, "It sounds good
to me but I think changes should be
made if students have a petition or form
a committee or something.
"After all, it was written for stu-
dents," she added.
