Domestic Corps assists
By Undsey Paterson
For the Daily
"We're taking business school methodologies and making
them available to these organizations who otherwise could not
afford this type of consultation," said Christopher Reynolds,
managing director of the Domestic Corps program run by the
Domestic Corps brings resources to economically chal-
lenged communities with the goal of promoting community
and economic development, Reynolds added.
Business student Andy Joseph said interning at the Human
Resources Office at Dine' College on the Navajo reservation in
Tsaile, Ariz. was one of the most unique experiences in his life.
It's just as different as "if people were herding sheep across the
Diag," he added.
Joseph was one of the 20 interns honored with a dinner yes-
terday who participated in last year's Domestic Corps pro-
gram. Donors who made the program possible were also
Keynote speaker. Joe Dulin, principal of the Roberto
Clemente Student Development Center, said "If you're going
for glory, seek it in another place. You're going in there not to
change their way of life, but to enhance the quality of life of
those who you serve. All of you have something to give. Now
where do you want to start?"
Business student Suzanne Smith said working as an intern at
the Mexicantown Community Development Center in southwest
Detroit was a struggle in the beginning, but became a positive
"In the first weeks on the job, there was this wall in between
me and the business owners who I had to interview. I was this
foreign person. It was just hard to communicate. But after a
while, they were very receptive," Smith said.
"We had a lot to celebrate this year. They have been trying to
receive funding to build a welcome center for 20 years and
finally they got it. They taught me how to celebrate their way,"
The funding that Mexicantown will receive from the state of
Michigan is being finalized, with the Welcome Center and also
a mercado, a Mexican market, as the final projects. Smith said
she hopes to see the mercado open in 2003.
Domestic Corps founder Marian Krzyzowski saw the success
of a similar program in Poland and Russia in the early 90s and
suggested beginning Domestic Corps in the United States. In
1992, a pilot program started with Focus: HOPE and consisted
of two MBA students. Since then, Reynolds said the program
has grown immensely and has sent a total of 170 interns across
America in its 10-year existence.
"We're looking for students who see, speak and hear from the
heart," Krzyzowski said.
Bill Wenzell, quality systems manager at Focus: HOPE, said
Joe Dulin speaks in front of the UM Business School's Domestic
Corps at Cottage Inn on East William Street yesterday evening.

consultant, says that growth in the use of technology will
not only empower more Americans but will allow more peo-
ple to get involved in politics.
"There's a vast group of people in the middle," he said
"They're non-voters. They feel disenfranchised. They
need to be listened to."
For that reason, Darr supports having the state get
involved in the expansion of broadband Internet access. The
state currently gives grants and bonds to unconnected locali-
ties to help them acquire broadband accessibility.
"We need to give people access to other people with
ideas," he said.

limited Democratic Sen. Alma Wheeler Smith. The 18th

His Democratic opponent is former state Rep. Liz Brater

During an interview with The Michigan Daily, Darr
said he is committed to changing the ways decisions are
made in the state and said many of the current leaders -
Democrats and Republicans - unfortunately are commit-
ted to the status quo.
"The elected officials are saying, 'We don't want it to
change' because their whole life is dependent on things
staying the same," he said. "If I see Republicans doing
something I think is fishy I'm going to do something
He said he is aware of rising tuition and less state fund-
ing coming to the University. One solution he proposes is
to separate research funding from funding for teaching,
as opposed to lump sum payments the University receives
from the state."Maybe if we do something with how
they're accounted for maybe teaching won't cost so
much," he said.

Why is the University of Michigan trying to prevent its Grutter
affirmative action case from going to the Supreme Court? This "clever
tactic" could backfire and result in weaker cases from other judicial
circuits going to the Court instead, and the overturning of affirmative
action. Lee Bollinger hoped the Supreme Court would hear
Grutter. (5/15/02, Detroit News) The University, if it really
treasures diversity, owes the community a detailed public
explanation about why it is dropping from the fight.

SAFE not guilty
of 'spoofed' e-ma
By Jeremy Berkowitz
Daily Staff Reporter
Interim University Provost Paul
Courant announced yesterday in an e-
mail to the University community that
no students or student organization
was responsible for a "spoofed" e-
mail sent last week to more than 100
faculty members and numerous stu-
"By examining detailed computer
records, the investigators have been
able to determine that the message was
not sent from any U-M e-mail
accounts, including those of the stu-
dent and (the) student organization
named in the message,"Courant said.
Investigators found that the e-mail,
allegedly sent from the Students
Allied for Freedom and Equality
account by unidentified computer
hackers, was not signed by SAFE co-
founder and LSA senior Fadi Kiblawi.
The e-mail invited University faculty
and students to the upcoming Second
National Student Conference on the
Palestine Solidarity Movement, spon-
sored by SAFE.
SAFE held several rallies in the
past week in regard to the spoofed
They were also upset about a
response from University President
Mary Sue Coleman, condemning
the e-mail's language and stating
her opposition to divestment of
University funds from Israel - a
major issue for the Palestine Soli-
"Rather than seriously address the
offensive e-mail and reassure the cam-
pus thatit did not originate from
SAFE, she irresponsibly seized upon
this opportunity to advance her own
personal and political agenda," SAFE
spokesman Eric Reichenberger, a
spoofers and spammers are very hard
to trace," Courant said. "As far as I
know, we're at a dead end."
Courant also said he apologizes to
members of the University community
who felt they were being falsely
accused of a crime.
"I'd like to be clear that at no time
did I or anybody else ever intimate that
anybody was ever responsible for this,"
"I'm certainly very sorry if our
being careful to stick to what we
knew caused any unpleasantness for
Kiblawi could not be reached for
LSA senior Adi Neuman said
whether SAFE is responsible for the e-
mail is not as important as their mis-
sion on campus.
"I would say more important than
who sent out what e-mail is the fact
that SAFE is bringing terrorist sup-
porters to campus," Neuman said.
