1U' boosts
efforts to
hire women
Daily Staff Reporter
In line with the Agenda for
Women, the University is taking steps
to increase the number of senior
women faculty on campus.
The agenda, announced this past
spring, is designed to increase the
roles and improve the success of
omen at the University.
University President James J.
Duderstadt said the University is es-
tablishing many programs with the
agenda's mandate in mind. "It's a
very broad activity. I've spent a lot of
time meeting with various groups."
The University has created a dis-
cretionary fund - the Career Devel-
opment Fund for Women Faculty -
A provide additional funding to fe-
ale faculty members who carry a
large service burden. Funds have also
been set aside for 10 additional fe-
male professorships over the next five
"We are seriously under-repre-
sented with regards to women fac-
ulty," Duderstadt said. Only 20 per-
cent of the senior faculty is female
despite the even gender split among
Barbara MacAdam, director of the
Undergraduate Library, takes an ac-
tive role in committees on campus
and serves as a mentor for female
"My sense with talking with other
women faculty and administrators is
that the kinds of pulls and tugs on
their time seem greater," MacAdam
The career development fund will
distribute up to 20 awards of $5,000
each semester that can be used to
lighten the burden faced by faculty
Possible uses for the funding in-
clude travel expenses, computers,
bboks and teaching assistant time.

)st for academic appointments, said

Like movie stars and professional
atheletes, first lady Hillary Rodham

inton has a fan club.
And while she travels across the
country this fall campaigning for con-
gressional candidates, the Hillary
Rodham Clinton Fan Club of Ann
Arbor will stump on her behalf.
The club met last night at the Burns
Park Senior Citizen Center to discuss
future plans over a potluck dinner.
About 50 of its 150 members attended,
including Liz Brater, Democratic can-
&date for state representative and a

Ann Arbor resident Janine Easter
founded the local club in June be-
cause people "were fed up with the
treatment Hillary gets in the press,"
Easter said.
"I quickly found out people wanted
to join the group," she added.
t Easter's daughter Kim, a second-
ar University law student, was one
such person.
"It seemed like a good way to get
involved in a grass roots effort, to
support women in politics in general
and specifically Hillary Clinton," Kim

Carter makes deal in Haiti;
U.S. to occupy island today

Oct. 15; Anstide
to regain power
Los Angeles Times
WASHINGTON - With the U.S. paratroopers lead-
ing an invasion force already in the air, Haiti's top
military leaders capitulated last night and agreed to step
down and permit exiled President Jean-Bertrand Aristide
to return to power.
A clearly relieved President Clinton announced the
deal in a televised speech from the Oval Office just hours
after a delegation led by former President Carter reached
the terms.
"Our objective was to make sure that the military
leaders leave power and the elected government is re-
stored," Clinton said.
"This agreement meets both of those objectives."
Clinton said that paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne.
loaded onto 61 aircraft, were already in the air last night
before Lt. Gen. Raoul Cedras, the army commander, and
Brig. Gen. Philippe Biamby, the army chief of staff,
finally agreed to quit. '
Under the agreement, Cedras and Biamby may re-
main in their positions until Oct. 15 or until parliament
passes an amnesty law. It was not immediately clear
whether Lt. Col. Michel-Joseph Francois, the powerful
Port-au-Prince police chief, would also have to leave.
Aristide will not return to assume his office until the
generals depart.
Despite the agreement, 15,000 U.S. troops - slightly
fewer than the planned invasion force - will begin to
arrive in Haiti today to restore order and clear the way for
Aristide's return. Clinton said Cedras and Biamby agreed
to cooperate with the U.S. force.
Clinton said the U.S. troops "will go in under much
more favorable ,conditions than they would have if the
generals had not agreed to relinquish power."
Retired Gen. Colin Powell, a member of Carter's
delegation, informed Cedras and his associates that the
invasion force's planes had been launched and when
they were scheduled to arrive, a senior administration
official said. At that point, Cedras realized that his cause

As group discusses Haiti crisis,
students are relieved, skeptical

For the Daily
The eleventh-hour deal struck between Lt.
Gen. Raoul Cedras, leader of Haiti's army, and
the U.S. delegation to Haiti, led by former Presi-
dent Carter, calling for Haiti's military leaders
to step down was met by relief and skepticism by
University students.
"I am very glad they reached an agreement,"
said Elisa Rosier, an RC first-year student, who
attended a discussion on Haiti.
LSA first-year student Hdlena Birecki. who
also attended, agreed..
"It seems to me that the U.S. is always
intervening for its own financial benefit in the
guise that they are really doing something good

for democracy. It's definitely a good thing that
we are not invading. I just hope that what follows
isn't just a switch from the military regime to
something that also doesn't represent the people's
needs. I hope it will be a true democracy."
Yet earlier yesterday evening, these same
students were preparing for the worst.
To the rhythmic beat of drums, a soulful
poem about a homeland filled with pain was
sung. A University student, who was born in.

U.S. News rates 'U' 21st in
nation, up 2 from last year

Daily Staff Reporter '
The University ranks as the sec-
ond best public university in the na-
tion, according to U.S. News and
World Reports' annual "America's
Best Colleges" issue.
Only the University of Virginia
ranks higher among public universi-
In this year's report, which hits
newsstands today, the University
moved up two spots to 21.
"I think moving from 23 to 21 is
nice, but I don't think it's significant.
Little movements don't tell you
much," said Walter Harrison, vice
president for University relations.
The University ranked ninth in
academic reputation - falling two
spots from its seventh place spot last
year -- and ranked 41st for student
selectivity, 29th for faculty resources,
42nd in financial resources, 28th in
graduation rate and 49th in alumni

Last year, the University ranked
38th for student selectivity, 32nd in
faculty resources, 38th in financial
resources, 25th in graduation rate and
58th in alumni satisfaction.
In the report, Harvard University
tops all 1,400 universities surveyed,
followed by Princeton University,
Yale University, Massachusetts In-
stitute of Technology and Stanford
The only other public universities
in the top 25 - University of Virginia
and University of California at Ber-
keley - ranked 17th and 23rd, re-
Regent Rebecca McGowan (D-
Ann Arbor) said she does not place
enormous weight on the report.
"The University of Michigan
ought to have enough confidence in
itself that its concerned where it's
with its faculty and its students,"
McGowan said.

Harrison asserted that the rankings
favor private institutions, noting that
only three public universities made
the top 25, because of the emphasis
on financial resources.
"They measure things that the pri-
vates are going to do better than the
publics because they're set up in fi-
nancially different ways," Harrison
But Bob Morse, director of re-
search for -the study, said financial
resources only account for 10 percent
of the ranking.
In past years, the study has steadily
decreased the value placed on fi-
nances. Morse said last year 15 per-
cent of the ranking was based on
financial resources; in 1992, it ac-
counted for 20 percent of the ranking.
While the University ranks high
in academic reputation, Morse said
the study needs to look at other fac-
tors for a fair report.
