Bollinger to continue fund-raising push
By Erin Hoies
Daily Staff Reporter
A year and $1.5 billion after the five-year
Campaign for Michigan fundraising effort officially
ended, the University is setting its sights on individ-
ual donors for a bright financial future.
The push toward more individualized sponsorship
arose from the realization that these donors "simply
have much more financial potential" than corpora-
tions, said Vice President for Development Susan
The percentage of total gifts donated to the
University by individuals, Fagan said, has grown
during the past 10 years - from 51 percent in 1988
to 58 percent last year.
"This is certainly a heartening trend," Fagan said.
"We hope over time to see the percentage grow, per-
haps to 65 or 70 percent."
University President Lee Bollinger said he is mak-
ing special efforts to maintain close ties with institu-
tional donors scattered around the nation.
"I've been appearing before alumni and founda-
tions to try and enlist the support and advice of small
groups" Bollinger said. "I want them to really offer
their energies and donations."
It is important to recognize individual sponsors as
integral University contributors, Fagan said because
corporations and associations, which comprise the
two other major donating groups, have guidelines
limiting the amount of money they give the
The majority of these individual sponsorships are
pondered by of University alumni, Fagan said.
"The alumni body here is so large, and we have a
tradition of commitment and devotion" Fagan said.
"We need to spend more time with individuals so
they understand where their money is going."
Since no donor campaigns are scheduled for
1998, Fagan said, the University will have to "work
extra hard" to raise money.
Bollinger said he hopes the fund-raising confer-
ences, aimed at a small group of people in "each of
the major U.S. cities," will positively influence
upcoming financial campaigns.
Bollinger cited the Capital Campaign, another
organized, campus-wide campaign that may be pro-
moted in three to five years, as a chance to use the
connections he is forming with individual sponsors.
"We need to begin building now' Bollinger said.
Fagan said Bollinger is "part of the whole con-
cept" of private sponsorships.
"We want to make sure people who contributed to
the success of our last campaign continue to feel
engaged with the University and stay in touch,"
Fagan said. "Many will continue to make gifts in the

The University Board of Regents

the regents' table - both literally and
Seated around an already full table
in the Regents' Room of the Fleming
Administration Building, the board
unanimously supported University
President Lee Bollinger's plan to
divide one major administrative posi-

of University vice presidents from
eight to 10.
The vice president for University

closes two years of constant flux

"It's my view that it is appropriate
at this point in the life of the
University to separate those out into
two positions and have people who
actually do that work ... be vice pres-
idents, he said.
Wilbanks has been the University's
chief lobbyist in Lansing for more than
three years and has worked within the
Office of University Relations.
Under Bollinger's new structure,
Wilbanks will oversee all University
government programs as the head of
the Office of Government

The regents also approved the
University's chief legal officers yester-
day. Marvin Krislov will serve as vice
president and general counsel and Liz
Barry as associate vice president and
deputy general counsel.
Several regents applauded
Bollinger's decision to shiti the oriai-
zation of the University's administra-

people in the positions, rather t han their
titles and positions.

celebrates 25 years
By Stephanie Hepburn
Daily Staff Reporter
Students, professors and community
members filled the East Conference
Room of the Rackham Graduate school
yesterday to hear anthropologist and
activist Gayle Rubin talk about her
experience in Ann Arbor during the late
In honor of the 25th Anniversary of
the Women's Studies Department, Rubin
- an activist, scholar, founder and first
graduate of the Women's Studies pro-
gram - gave a speech titled,
"Revisioning Ann Arbor's radical past."
Rubin arrived at the University in
1966 at age 17. She left her small
Southern town for politically-charged of
Ann Arbor. Anti-war organizations and
the Students for a Democratic Society
were being formed to protest Vietnam.
Yet tradition and barriers still hindered
women, so changes began to take place.
When she arrived there was still a
sign on the Michigan football field that
stated, "No women, children or dogs on
the field," Rubin said.
"Changes emerged from the '60s at
breath-taking speed," Rubin said.
"Many barriers to women shifted like
plates in an earthquake. Many stresses
had built up over the years. Previous
generations had laid so much of the,
Karen Miller, editor of the
Michigan Feminist Studies journal,
said she believes it is important for
women to know the history of the
struggles and barriers that women
like Rubin fought to break.
"Its really important for women
today to see that activism has effects
and to see the groundwork by grass
roots for the instruction that they take
for granted," Miller said.
In 1966, women were required to live
in residence halls for two years.
Residence halls were supposed to
replace parental supervision. Under a
rule called "in loco parentis."
"Letting women into the University
was considered a dangerous experi-
ment," Rubin said.
Men were let into the University on
the basis of room in the classroom.
Women, however, were let into the
University on the basis of supervised
beds, Rubin said.
"Women had a curfew;" Rubin said.
"We had to be in the dorm at 11 p.m. on
the weekdays and midnight on the
weekends. We also had the open opens
rule, which meant that when men or
women were in the same dorm room
the door had to be open at a 45 degree
angle so a supervisor could walk by and
make sure both sets of feet were on the
In 1967, Rubin and fellow female
students helped abolish the curfew.
RC senior Danielle Gorden, a
women's studies major, said she
thought Rubin's speech was interesting
and critical for students to hear.
"I thought it was really interesting,"
Gorden said. "It was very reflective
of the time and of how women still
