leaders in the programs are diverse, she added.
"We think students respond to the programs
very, very favorably," Taylor said.
Some programs are geared toward emphasiz-
ing the presence of specific minority communi-
ties on campus, such as the American Indian
The state of "Michigan has a large Native
American population, and the fact that we have
so few students here is kind of problematic,"
said Steven Abbott, student services associate
for multiethnic student affairs. "Hopefully we
can get more outreach programs going."
Programs are in place to establish contact with
students at tribal colleges; other programs are

"Student groups really need to play a pretty
large role" in recruitment, Abbott said. Students
already established on campus can give potential
students a picture of what opportunities are
available at the University and what the campus
climate is.
"It is very, very difficult for people to leave
their home community," Abbott said, adding that
many American Indian students come from
places with a strong sense of family and commu-
"It is a unique challenge ... to leave their
community to come to a mainstream university
where they will be so sharply in the minority,"
he said.
Student groups on campus can foster a sense
of community for Native American students.
"They're going to be one of the biggest sup-
port mechanisms while they're here," he said.
Once they are here, the University faces the

challenge of retaining enrolled students, particu-
larly among minority students.
Myriad student groups and initiatives are
designed to help students find their niche on
campus. Some are focused on community ser-
vice or special hobbies. Others are focused on
certain ethnic minorities, serving to strengthen
the sense of community on campus.
"Student groups are extremely important,"
Matlock said. While it is important for students
to do well academically, Matlock said he real-
izes that non-academic ventures can be equally
important to students' well-being. Many student
groups allow students an outlet for their creative
and cultural sides that may be difficult to
express in the confines of a classroom. Groups
also provide a sense of community and opportu-
nities for leadership.
"Fortunately, as an institution we've been very
supportive of those activities," Matlock said.

ment will also create financial problems.
"In 2030, genomic-based health care
will be the norm, and I hope it works
well for me," said Collins, who will be
80 years-old by then. "Economically,
social security will be in big trouble, as
the average life expectancy reaches 90."
"People will chose to improve and
see themselves as ideal," Collins added.
Despite positive health benefits, fears
of genetic research going beyond its nat-
ural boundaries will dominate thoughts
of the general population, if they do not
receive information on the advance-
ments, Collins said.
Richard Lempert, director of the Life
Sciences, Values and Society Project,
also acknowledged the importance of
educating the public.
"It is becoming increasingly obvious
that research can be thwarted by social
implications and human values as easily
as it could (positively) affect them,"
Lempert said. "I don't see a cure for
cancer around the corner, but research
exists to have implications that will ben-
efit us all."
Rackham graduate student Orkun
Soyer, a biology Ph.D. candidate, said
he agreed that the benefits of genetic
research will outweigh the negative side
effects, after listening to the lecture.
"There will be huge implications on
better drugs," Soyer said. "It may not be
dangerous in terms of uses, but it may
have a bad impact on society with
health insurance, discrimination in get-
ting jobs and social rights.
"We will definitely need regulations
on that," he added.

alone will not dislodge the al-Qaida fighters.
He said the ground assault will be difficult, as
the Arabs have had years to build up their
defenses and restock their caves with weapons
and food. He said bin Laden "has not escaped,
and we will do everything possible to make
sure he doesn't."
From the other side of the front line, a 27-year-
old Tunisian, Abu Abdullah, claimed weeks U.S.
bombing have had little effect, killing only two
people and slightly injuring eight.
Contacted by radio from Pakistan, Abdullah
said 84 Arab fighters - mostly from Iraq,
Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt - were hiding in the
mountains. A few had wives and children there,
he said. He claimed the fighters had no links to
bin Laden and scoffed at the idea that the world's
most wanted man was among them.
"I swear by Allah that Osama is not present
here," he told The Associated Press. "But now we
have no alternative except to embrace death instead
of dishonor."

"I don't think it's any question this is the best team
we've faced this season," Carr said. "They have a typi-
cal outstanding defense, a well-balanced offense and
strong special teams."
Carr later said John Navarre will still be leading the
Wolverines' offense despite his recent struggles against
Wisconsin and Ohio State.
With the game being the first in this new rivalry,
many associated with the Citrus Bowl are sure that this
bowl game will draw fans from all over the nation and
high BCS-like ratings.
"We're honored to have the University of Michigan
and the University of Tennessee," said Citrus Bowl
Executive Director Chuck Rohe.
"I can't imagine two more prestigious teams playing
in this game. We're going to have a game that ABC is
going to love."

military campaign could involve more
American forces and continue for a long
time even though the Taliban are out of
power and al-Qaida fighters are sur-
rounded near one of their mountain
hide-outs, U.S. officials said yesterday.
"We may send in some" more troops
to Afghanistan, Deputy Defense Secre-
tary Paul Wolfowitz said.
"The most important thing for the
American people to understand is our
objectives remain very largely to be
done in the future," he said.
"Enemies that are half-defeated can
be very dangerous and they can take a
long time to clear out." .
U.S. forces would not occupy
Afghanistan, but would hunt down top
Taliban and al-Qaida leaders, continue
hunanitarian aid efforts and help sup-
port a post-Taliban government, the offi-
cials said. "We're not eager to have the
United States come in and become an
occupying power in Afghanistan. That's
not our purpose." Vice President Dick
Cheney said.
"We want to see to it that what is left
behind gives the Afghan people the

opportunity to develop a strong repre-
sentative government, a government that
can guarantee that, in the future, no ter-
rorist will once again find sanctuary or
safe harbor in Afghanistan," he said on
NBC's "Meet the Press."
That goal, he said, could take "years
of involvement" and would rely on aid
agencies and perhaps U.N. peacekeepers
over the short term.
U.S. troops are unlikely to remain in
Afghanistan to provide security for food
and other humnanitarian aid distribution,
said Gen. Richard Myers, chainnan of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff. 'This global
war on terrorism is going to require mil-
itary forces for some time to come, per-
haps, and one thing we don't want to do
is leave a large legacy force in
Afghanistan,"Myers said.
Military officials believe Osama bin
Laden probably is in the ToraBora area,
a complex of caves and tunnels in
mountainous eastern Afghanistan.
U.S. special forces troops with the
anti-Taliban forces there "are trying to
get their eyes onto some of these tar-
gets" to help with airstrikes and aid the
opposition, Myers said.

Just across the border, the Pakistani army won
permission from tribal elders for the first time
ever _to move several thousand troops to the
semi-autonomous border region to cut off possi-
ble escape routes, said Malik Inyat Khan, chief of
the Kuki Khel tribe. He said they planned to take
their positions today.
Cheney said a videotape of bin Laden
obtained by U.S. officials in Afghanistan
makes clear the al-Qaida leader was behind the
terrorist attacks. The Washington Post, quoting
unidentified senior government officials, said
the tape shows bin Laden praising Allah for
the attacks, which he said were more success-
ful than anticipated.
"He does in fact display significant knowledge
of what happened and there's no doubt about his
responsibility for the attack on September 11,"
Cheney said.
The Pakistan-based Afghan Islamic Press also
reported strong U.S. air attacks Saturday and yes-
terday against convoys in Afghanistan's eastern
Paktika province, killing 24 people. The report
could not be independently verified. The area
includes al-Qaida hide-outs and could be among

the destinations of Taliban leaders fleeing Kanda-
U.S Marines set up roadblocks around Kanda-
har, searching for wanted leaders, but U.S. offi-
cials reported no encounters with hostile groups.
Hamid Karzai, who takes power as
Afghanistan's interim leader on Dec. 22, told Fox
News yesterday that he had "no idea" where bin
Laden was located but said his men were search-
"He is a criminal," Karzai said of bin Laden.
"He has killed thousands of our people. He has
ruined our lives. He has done horrible things. If
we catch hium he will be given to international
The whereabouts of the Taliban supreme
leader, Mullah Mohammed Omar, are also
unknown since the Taliban abandoned Kandahar
on Friday.
The Taliban yesterday lost the last province of
Afghanistan where they held control, when two
Taliban officials handed over Zabul province,
neighboring Kandahar, to tribal leaders, the
Afghan Islamic Press reported.
Karzai,whose interim government is to replace

Taliban rule throughout the country _ entered Kan-
dahar and met with, the feuding factions at the
bombed-out fonner residence of Mullah Omar to
work out a power-sharing deal.
Former Kandahar governor Gul Agha, who felt
shut out of the Taliban surrender deal, said he
would return to the post he held until the Taliban
kicked him out in 1994. A Karzai-appointed
leader, Mullah Naqibullah, would be his assis-
tant, he said. A Karzai spokesman confirmed the
With the situation resolved in Kandahar,
Karzai planned to go to Kabul, the Afghan capi-
tal, a spokesman said.
Meanwhile, Afghanistan's former king hopes
to return to his homeland from his exile in Italy
on March 21, his grandson said yesterday. The
former monarch, Mohammad Zaher Shah, 87, is
to play the symbolic role of convening a tradi-
tional grand council of Afghan tribes six months
from now. That council will set up a two-year
transitional government and draw up a constitu-
