"That (nationalism) completely
devalues the contributions of India's
minorities by marginalizing them and
attacking the just place they have on
the Indian public landscape. Gujarat is
Gandhi's land. It is the ideology that
killed Gandhi that has been ruling the
state of Gujarat for the last 10 years,"
Varshney said.
"I cannot conceptualize Indian cul-
ture without Hindu or Muslim motifs.
Virtually no part of India, including
its architecture and dress habits, do
not bear the stamp of a joint nature,"
he said.
Because most of the violence took
place in areas of high segregation
between Muslims and Hindus,
Varshney proposed integration as a
possible solution to the conflict.
"The highly localized concentration
of violence occurs in certain cities
that have only 6 percent of the total
Indian population but half of the Mus-
lim-Hindu deaths. This is the result of
segregation in small towns leading to
ghastly riots," he said.
Javed Nazir, a visiting journalism
fellow, said international intervention
is necessary to resolve the long-stand-
ing conflict between Muslims and
Hindus in South Asia.
"My heart grieves over what hap-
pened in India and what happened
in Pakistan. In Pakistan, religious
places like temples, mosques and
churches have become killing
grounds for us," he said. "The rest

"As students we think these issues
of conflict and diversity are so far
removed from us, but this discussion
really helped form a sense of connec-
tion with what's going on over there,
especially for me as a non-Indian,"
she said.

has failed to protect workers adequately from severe
musculo-skeletal disorders (caused by repetitive stress,
awkward work motions and related safety hazards);
injuries caused by needle punctures; and the risk of
exposure to blood borne pathogens resulting from vari-
ous types of accidents and injuries."
According to the WRC report, New Era has also shown
"a persistent pattern of non-compliance with workers'
rights of association" and has refused to bargain with their
workers' union.
In a letter sent last month to Timothy Freer, director
of human resources at New Era, the University's com-
mittee voiced concern about whether the company was
operating under the University's code.
"The lack of a timely and appropriate response is incon-
sistent with the behaviors we expect from our business part-
ners and has placed our business relationship at risk," Root
stated in the letter.
Kolben and Root both said, despite its recommendation,
the committee hopes the contract will be renewed and that
New Era will acknowledge and remedy the problems that
have arisen.
However, Kolben said a lot of progress would have to
be made before the recommendation could be with-
drawn. Root said until that happens, the University will
most likely follow the committee's advice.

Shalala has committed a large portion of her life to the
improvement of higher education as president of Hunter

Glaser, who will be receiving an honorary Doctor of Sci-

"In 1949, just after I got my degree, I taught there for 10
years as a professor of physics," Glaser said.
Glaser is one of the youngest scientists ever to be
awarded a Nobel Prize in physics. He developed the

affection," Glaser said.

ing, White said.
The purpose of the event is twofold,
Hollenshead said. "It gives the president
an opportunity to hear from women on
campus and for women to explain to
him some of the women's issues and
potential actions," she added.
The beginning of White's address
focused on the aspirations he has for all
people who choose to make their careers
at the University. "We need to continue
to do everything possible to be the best
public university in the nation and a
model for others," White said.
"That means preserving and develop-
ing areas of existing excellence. There's
no point in maintaining the University's
excellence in social sciences if we don't
simultaneously develop the capacity to
do other great things such as the Life
Sciences Institute."
White stressed his belief that the Uni-
versity has to achieve academic excel-
lence. "We are the opposite of a
boutique" White said in reference to the
University's academics. "We are very
broad in our academic strengths, and we
must value talented people as our most
important resource."

According to a copy of the minutes
prepared after the committee's Feb. 5
meeting, the committee includes repre-
sentatives from the Ann Arbor Police
Department, the Department of Public
Safety, the Washtenaw Country Prosecu-
tor's office, and the University's offices
of the general counsel, student affairs,
athletics, community relations and com-
munications. The attendees included
Ann Arbor Police Chief Daniel Oates
and DPS Director Bill Bess.
According to University officials, the
committee has been in existence for sev-
eral years.
"We have pulled together a committee
for the past three to four years that repre-
sents campus," DPS spokeswoman
Diane Brown said. "This is also the
group that addresses the event itself and
how to manage it."
"About four years ago the University
decided to try to ratchet up the response
to eliminate the event," she added.
This year marked the first time stu-
dents were invited to join the committee.
A representative from the Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly attended the March 5
meeting and will attend the next meeting

in early April.
"They're going to have a lot of police
officers at the event -more than at any
other event," Edgar Zapata, LSA sopho-
more and co-chair of MSA's campus
safety commission, said. "They're work-
ing really hard to make sure things go
their way"
The committee also included a repre-
sentative from the Washtenaw County
Prosecutor's Office to advise on legal
matters and to coordinate the prosecu-
tion of indecent exposure arrests.
"Since the committee started up sev-
eral years ago there has been more of an
effort in enforcement," Washtenaw
County Deputy Chief Assistant Prosecu-
tor Steve Miller said.
"We definitely prosecuted individuals
for indecent exposure last year," Miller
said. He declined to estimate how many
individuals were charged.
"The prosecutor was never part of our
operation at all," School of Public
Health student Jennifer Seamon said.
Seamon coordinated MSA student vol-
unteers in 1999 and said DPS was very
helpful assisting the volunteers. "It was
huge, but we managed to make it a very
safe event," she added.
The University considers the event a
serious criminal and public safety issue.

"Our ultimate goal has been to pre-
vent students from getting hurt," Peter-
son, a committee member, said. She
added that it was part of a multi-year
process to safeguard student safety.
"Last year, there wasn't really an
event," Peterson said, "I hope and expect
that is part of a trend."
Last year, only a handful of runners
completed the run after many AAPD
and DPS officers were present along the
run's traditional route. The University
also sent e-mails to students and printed
large posters for the residence halls
describing the event as potentially dan-
gerous for participants in hopes of dis-
couraging them from running.
The University committee plans to
pursue a similar campaign this year.
"It's important to remind people of
the dangers again," Brown said, adding
that DPS recognizes that each year the
student body changes. She said the cam-
paign would be updated to include the
fact that arrests were made for indecent
exposure last year and that few people
actually participated.
The committee is pursuing an out-
reach plan to communicate with the
Greek community, MSA, Eastern
Michigan University, athletic teams
and others.
