POLICE
Continued from Page 1A
cers, staff and students. The goal,
Alessi said, will be to involve stu-
dents and staff in preventing and
solving crime in their community. In
addition to the monthly meeting of
the problem-solvers, quarterly "town
hall" meetings open to everyone will
be held in each district.
Alessi said he wants students and
officers to know each other by
name, making for a friendlier cam-
pus. "The response has been over-
whelmingly positive," Alessi said of
the new program. But some stu-
dents, such as LSA freshman Rohit
Kakar is skeptical about and suspi-
cious of the new program. "I don't
know if I want (police) to know me
by name," he said.
But Kakar added, "I'm not going to
prejudge their program. It is up to them
to provide the results."
Others, such as LSA freshman Ricar-
do Bolanzo, expressed confidence in
the program. "It sounds like a good
idea," Bolanza said. "I say go for it."
Whatever students' reactions to the
program may be, Alessi said the new
organization plan will get the job
done. "It does reduce crime," Alessi
said. "The Pontiac police went to. it and
so did Bay City."
Don Gracey, executive assistant to
Pontiac's City police chief, said the pro-
gram has indeed been successful at
reducing crime in Pontiac.
"We are trying to encourage people
to join" the problem-solving teams,
Alessi said. "The police can only do so
much. They (the students) need to be a
part of our team."

PROG RAMS
Continued from Page 1A
nity, a watchdog firm that opposes
race-conscious university policies, first
told MIT two years ago that it would
investigate the programs, administra-
tors decided not to back down. But the
current political climate caused the
school to change its mind.
"We basically decided - reluctantly
that in the current legal environment
- they cannot be defended," MIT
Undergraduate Education Dean Robert
Redwine said, adding that although the
revamped programs hope to benefit all
students, attracting underrepresented
minorities might become more chal-
lenging.
CEO General Counsel Roger Clegg
said the mother of an MIT freshman
originally contacted CEO because she
was upset that her son was ineligible
for one of the programs because he
was not a minority.
"We contacted the school and point-
ed out that the program was inconsis-
tent with the civil rights laws and that
the program should be opened to all
students without regard to race or eth-
nicity," Clegg said.
Clegg said CEO continues to watch
schools all over the country for pro-
grams that may discriminate by race.
He added that the group sent five let-

"There is nothing illegal here. It's
perfectly legal to mail them," Struck
said. "The only alarm is that they
resembled hand grenades, and the
current situation that we are living in

ters out to universities yesterday to
warn them about various programs that
might be illegal.
"We're not opposed to programs that
help disadvantaged students, but we
don't think that disadvantaged and
advantaged should be defined in terms
of race;' Clegg said.
Redwine said that, because the
court's decision will come down later
this spring, the stakes are high for
many universities. Although he said
CEO has a right to pursue its agenda,
he said he feels that not many students
who will soon benefit from the pro-
gram are truly disadvantaged.
But several school administrators
said similar concerns about lawsuits
against their own institutions are mini-
mal. At Brown University, a school
where blacks and Hispanics each make
up 7 percent of the student body, Gen-
eral Counsel Beverly Ledbetter said
she does not expect any changes in
Brown's commitment to minority pro-
grams.
"Brown has not removed or elimi-
nated any of (its) programs in response
to any sort of lawsuit," Ledbetter said.
Ledbetter declined to comment fur-
ther on the decisions or on other multi-
cultural initiatives offered by Brown.
Brown President Ruth Simmons could
not be reached for comment.
At Northwestern University, Hispan-
caused alarm. The people in the post
office and the federal building did
exactly as they should have done."
The package had been sent from a
Minnesota address to an Ann Arbor
resident. Stuck said the AAPD will
not continue to investigate the inci-
dent, as there was no crime.

ics and blacks make up 5.8 and 5.1
percent, respectively, of this year's
freshman class.
Mary Desler, associate vice presi-
dent of student affairs, said North-
western offers numerous programs
that are not exclusive to minorities
but still attract them. She was
unaware of the possibilities of these
programs being eliminated. She said
Northwestern's legal staff is explor-
ing potential challenges to the pro-
grams.
The University of California system,
on the other hand, is not concerned
with the lawsuits, mainly because they
are bound to Proposition 209 - a
1996 referendum passed by California
voters banning the use of affirmative
action programs, including admissions
policies.
"It won't affect the University of
California," spokesman Hanan Eisen-
man said.
Eisenman added that the University
of California offers numerous outreach
programs for high school students to
help them prepare for college, but that
these programs do not target underrep-
resented minorities.
"They are based on bringing educa-
tional opportunities to schools that
have traditionally sent few students to
(the University of California)," Eisen-
man said.
