Dowdell said organizers weren't nec-

long as people began thinking about the
consequences of a decline in minority

INITIATIVE

program would not be a replacement but a "supplement" to
the Office of New Student Programs Orientation.
The POSSE orientation will offer students seminars focus-
ing on developing research skills and writing papers as well
as purchasing and working with computers.
The half-day sessions will allow students to learn "about the
expectations here and the best ways to get off to a fast start,'
Matlock said.
Through POSSE, coordinator Denise O'Neil Green said
she hopes students will develop a sense of belonging at the
University.
"We want students to know the University of Michigan is
their institution and that they should take advantage of its
resources" said Green, a School of Education graduate stu-
dent who helped author the proposal for the program.
Beginning in January, POSSE will also allow current stu-
dents an opportunity for internships in OAMI to investigate
student success and student retention. A few teams of four or
five students will explore the issues.
"The students will then report back to the community" in
a symposium, Green said.
Graduation rates of underrepresented minority students are
lower than for white students at the University. According to
the Office of the Registrar within six years of their initial
entry in 1992, black students graduated at a rate of 63 per-
cent, Latino/a students graduated at a rate of 73 percent and

"The Webcam is being moved to Yost Ice Arena
because of the number of people in Yost. We wanted the
camera to be more active and with Ann Arbor hockey,
intermurals, figure skaters and free skaters, from 6 a.m.
to 2 a.m., at least you'll see something," Bruce Madej
said.
The Webcam's images of Yost Ice Arena should be

Native American students graduated at a rate of 60 percent.
Eighty-four percent of Asian American students graduated,
while 87 percent of white students graduated in the same period.
Although Matlock said the University's retention and grad-
uation numbers are among the highest in the nation, we
"could always do better"
A grant from the state's Department of Education Select
Student Support Services and a matching contribution from the
Provost's office will provide more than $200,000 forthe project.
The proposal states that programs' effectiveness will be
tracked through grade point averages, retention, completed
credit hours and students satisfaction with their University
experience.
The POSSE proposal was one of 34 programs submitted from
the state's public and private institutions focusing on retention.
Rudy Redmond, coordinator for the Department of
Education's Martin Luther King Jr., Cesar Chavez and Rosa
Parks Initiative, a grant program that designates money to the
support of pilot retention programs that meet certain criteria,
said the University's proposal received a high score.
Redmond said the program is being watched with enthusiasm.
"Since this is the University of Michigan we are all look-
ing at this ... ambitious approach," Redmond said.
The proposals are scored based on factors including poten-
tial to create sustained increase in the institution's retention
and the institutions commitment to the initiative once funding
has ended.
The University must submit a mid-year report but is able to
reapply for program funding for two additional years.

Madej said that the Webcam was installed to enhance
their ability to draw viewers to their Web sites.
The Webcam is a joint effort between the athletic -
department and MLive.
Although the Webcam broadcasts 24 hours a day, live
relays of games are not shown.
As for the urban legend of students trysting on the
fifty-yard line of the football field, Skowron said,
"There have been people down there at night on the field
doing things they shouldn't have. If the Webcam is on all
the time, then you could end up pretty embarrassed"
