Admissions lawsuits make Bollinger visible

Continued from Page 1A
1996, Bollinger has led developments in the Life
Sciences Institute, campus construction and the
Arthur Miller theater, "as well as the arts in gener-
al," Williams said.
University Vice President for Medical Affairs
Gil Omenn also said the LSI is a major aspect of
Bollinger's tenure.
"I expect the LSI will be his legacy whether he
leaves this year or in 10 years," Omenn said. "He's
put us on a very good path."
Williams said the initiatives would not reach
their full potential without Bollinger's presence.
"These initiatives are begun but, from my van-
tage point, they would, in a sense, be retarded by
the absence of his energy and vision," he said.
But Bollinger has been most visible because of
his role in the recent lawsuits challenging the
race-conscious admissions policies of the Law
School and the College of Literature, Science and
the Arts.
Bollinger, who was named as a defendant in
both lawsuits just months after stepping into the
University's presidency, chose the University's law
firm and testified in the Law School trial earlier
this month.
He has continually been a vocal supporter of the
University's system, citing the necessity of diver-
sity in education.

Williams said Bollinger's law experience was
helpful during the lawsuits.
Bollinger, a noted First Amendment scholar,
served as the University's Law School dean for
seven years and as a member of the law faculty for
14 years.
"I applaud deeply his commitment to the goals
involved in the lawsuits over the admissions poli-
cies," Williams said. "He occupied an extensive
and important role, irrespective of the outcome to
the lawsuits."
When Bollinger was chosen as the University
president four years ago, Deitch said he believed
the position would be Bollinger's "dream job."
Members of the University community offered
varying opinions on what Bollinger will do if
offered the position.
"I expect he'll stay here," Omenn said. "Of
course, if Harvard does woo him away, we will be
very proud of him."
Williams said he wants to tell Bollinger to
"please stay."
"For all the reasons Harvard wants him, I hope
he chooses to stay," Williams said, adding that
while Bollinger would probably be a very good
president for Harvard, "we need him more."
University students had a different perspective
on Bollinger's influence.
LSA junior Dustin Lee said students haven't
seen much of Bollinger's influence.
"Aside from a few isolated incidents, I think

"For all the reasons
Harvard wants him, I hoe
he chooses to stay. ... We
need him more."
- Ralph Williams
University English professor
that the majority of the student body did not feel
the effects of a Bollinger presidency, Lee said.
He added that "other than bailing out the Ath-
letic Department, the (Students Organizing for
Labor and Economic Equality) debacle and a few
other notable events, he probably spent the majori-
ty of his time caught up in the daily administiaive
aspects of his job."
But LSA sophomore Rob Shereda said he's
"very happy" with how Bollinger handled the Stu-
dents of Color Coalition against Michigamua last
spring and that Bollinger is doing "an excellent
job with the sweatshop issue."
"When an issue of importance to students aris-
es, it seems that President Bollinger is always
willing to keep the solution from becoming pn
administrative problem and rather than hand dbWn
a judgment from on high, he returns it to intefett-
ed students," Shereda said.

as a joint effort with the United States Air Force as
part of a contract to test the effects of gusts on air-
craft. In addition to the larger, five-foot by seven-foot
test area wind tunnel, the University owns nine
smaller tunnels on North Campus. Most of the
smaller tunnels are used for educational purposes.
"Educational use always comes first at the Univer-
' said Tom Griffin, the aerodynamics lab super-
visor. Griffin said he believes the University's
aerodynamics facilities have helped sway prospec-
tive students and faculty towards the University.
Each semester, students enrolled in Aerospace
Engineering 306, under the supervision of Prof.
Donald Geister, design and test projects using the
wind tunnel.
"The students work in groups of four and complete
even to 10 projects each semester," Geister said.

Ford and NASA have
contracted projects in the
University's wind tunnels.
This semester student projects include designing
aircraft jet engines; modifications on the X-38, a
type of wing designed by Johnson Flight Company;
electric propulsion in space; and a project with
National Aeronautics and Space Administration,
Geister said.
Geister's students are also working with the
man-powered helicopter team on design modifi-
cations. In the past, students have used the wind
tunnel facilities to test the Michigan solar and
formula racing cars.
In recent years the University has been com-
missioned to do aerodynamics tests on bicycle

helmets, windshield wipers, cars, jets and race
cars for such companies as Ford, General
Motors, NASA, Goodyear, Lockheed, Grey-
hound Bus Company and the U.S. Military, Grif-
fin said.
In 1987 the University worked with the U.S.
Olympic bobsled team on modifications to the
sled for the 1988 Winter Games. Recently, the
Ann Arbor Police Department has contacted the
University about running wind resistance tests on
police car lights.r
The wind tunnels have also been used to combat
the forces of nature. Numerous companies have
hired University researchers to test product and
building designs against high winds that may occur
during hurricanes or tornadoes.
Use of the wind tunnel facilities has slowed in
past years as large companies have found it more
cost effective to build their own testing sites, Grif-
fin said.
