lect some evidence.
"We are currently investigating those leads," Richmond said,
adding that he did not know if the suspects could be connected
to other recent, unsolved campus crimes. "If we do catch them,
we're going to explore that as well," he said.
Richmond said two officers are assigned to do foot and
car patrols on North Campus. They drive around looking
for any suspicious activity and respond to calls from the
dispatcher for any incidents in the area. He said since the
incident, the number of officers patrolling North Campus
has not increased.
"We always keep the same staffing levels and on occasion
we beef something up depending if we have problems in the
particular area," Richmond said. "As for now, nothing has been
beefed up in that area."
In September, DPS posted a crime alert for a suspected
armed robbery in the Church Street Parking Structure. At the
time, a black man around 6-foot-5 and between 18 and 23
years old approached a man and asked him for his money. The
suspect then fled from the scene.
In October, two black males and one white male assaulted a
Business junior outside his Church Street apartment. Although
he suffered a broken nose, nothing was taken from him.
Two weeks later, three black males attacked an LSA
junior on Hill Street, beat him up and stole his cell
phone. After the men started calling the victim's friends,
two of the suspects were tricked into going to the corner
of South State and Packard Streets. They were then
arrested by Ann Arbor Police.
Richmond cautioned students to be more careful about
where they walked and to tell friends of their whereabouts. But
he said students should not be too worried over the incident.
"We do have a safe campus," Richmond said.

tion that works on community service projects with various
University student groups.
AIESEC President-elect Carly Lewis said last year AIESEC
also organized The Event, a Diag celebration where free food
and games were provided. Almost every student group was
invited, she said.
"Through AIESEC we've been able to meet people from
every other group," Lewis said. "We're not segregated."
Lewis said many international and American students
are members of AIESEC, and through involvement in the
group, they have a chance to meet many other students on
"One of the great things about AIESEC is no matter what
country you're from ... you're going to meet people from all
over the world," she said, adding through AIESEC she has met
people from 85 countries.
Although the transition to living and studying in the
United States may be difficult for many international stu-
dents, involvement in many different activities is a way to
relieve homesickness and integrate into the University,
Bajpaee said.
"One of the solutions was getting involved a lot," he
said. "It really helped in adjusting to the environment,
meeting new people."

JA. Croson Co. invalidated the state of Vir-
ginia's requirement that non-minority-owned
contractors set aside a certain percentage of
contracts for minority subcontractors on the
grounds that it violated the 14th Amend-
ment's equal protection clause.
The use of affirmative action in the area of
contracting preferences was further clarified in
Adarand Constructors, INC. v. Pena, the
Court's most recent decision involving racial
At the time, most federal contracts contained a
compensation clause, which provided contractors a
financial incentive to hire socially and economical-
ly disadvantaged subcontractors.
The Court said in Croson that strict scrutiny -
the highest level of judicial examination - must be
applied to all race-based action by state and local
governments, and in Adarand it extended this
heightened standard of review to apply to federal
The Court did not rule on the constitutionality of
the race-based contracting clause, but instead
remanded it to lower-court review under the strict
scrutiny standard.
"In Adarand, the Supreme Court said racial
classifications used by the federal govern-
ment would be subject to strict scrutiny,"
Klegg said.
He added that the Court has indicated in both
Croson and Adarand that preferential treatment
in the area of employment should be
approached cautiously.

beyond what most of us can do with our voices.
Although I have no idea what he is going to say,
that is part of what is going to be so great about the
speech and everyone at graduation is going to feel
some part of his message."
The committee of faculty members assembled to
select the commencement speaker was given both
written copies and tape recordings of the speeches.
"We looked for a well-written speech that would
be interesting for the audience, English Prof.
Richard Cureton said.
"The one we chose had some serious moments,
but it used a contemporary idiom. It used song
lyrics-and made references to popular culture and
different issues of student life - things that stu-
dents might engage with immediately."
The committee looked for a well-balanced speech
that encompassed many aspects of student life.
"There were a few speeches that were more
weighty and intellectual, but some of the committee
members thought that might miss the audience,"
Cureton said.
"There were other speeches that dismissed the
academic side of college life and only embraced the
community aspect. We tried to choose a speech that

The Court's application of strict scrutiny
has placed a heavy presumption against the
constitutional validity of federal or state
action when race is involved.
"When they were using strict scrutiny they struck
down most programs," Bloch said.
Klegg said the Court's skepticism with regard to
affirmative action is further illustrated in the 1997
Board of Education of the Township of Piscataway
v. Taxman.
The issue argued in the case was whether it was
constitutional for a school to dismiss an equally
qualified white teacher in favor of a black teacher
in order to maintain its racially diverse educational
Various civil rights organizations were nervous
the Supreme Court would rule against the school
district, which Klegg said was the reason the case
was settled out of court before the Court could
reach a decision in the case.
"The fact that that happened shows ... how even
the other side recognizes that this is a Court that
looks at racial discrimination with a jaundiced eye,"
he said.
In looking to decisions in recent cases relating to
education, Post said the Court has said race can be
used only if there are assurances that its use serves
a compelling interest.
He said the Court's decision in Bakke found
diversity to be a compelling interest and it is on this
point that the future of the University's admissions
policies rests.
"The Court has been hostile on affirmative
action, although it has permitted it to proceed," Post
said. "The crucial question is whether (diversity)
remains a compelling interest."
"There were a few
speeches that were
more weighty and
intellectual, but we
thought that might miss
the audience."

them develop and mature, he said,

knowledge and behavior is very sat-
"It seems odd to get an award for
something I enjoy doing so much.
I'd almost do this for free but I have
to pay the bills," he said.
Having taught anatomy to med-
ical students throughout the United
States for the past 20 years, Gest
said he recognizes the importance
of not making the material harder
than it has to be and emphasized his
desire to help students get the most
possible out of the semester.
An important aspect of helping
students learn comes from small
group interactions, he said. That's a
lesson he learned from his major
professor in graduate school, who
instead of taking in "a platoon of
graduate students and letting them
sink or swim" took on one student
at a time and invested all his time in
that individual.
"I think part of my approach to
teaching goes back to that," he said.
"He was definitely a large influence
on my career, but I've known a lot
of excellent teachers and they've all
inspired me to try to attain as high
a level as I can attain in teaching
quality, so that's always been my
desire, my goal."
Active learning is another neces-
sary element in a successful class-
room, and decreasing lecture time
and passive learning to make time
for more group work and interac-
tion has been a top priority for
"I enjoy interaction with really
bright students. Medical students
are always really bright and so
stimulating to be with - it's a
pleasure to teach people who are so
easy to teach and so eager to learn,"
he said.
First-year Medical student Melis-
sa Brooks described her professor

as committed and accessible.
Brooks said she wasn't at all sur-
prised that he received the Golden
Apple Award - in fact, she was
one of the students who nominated
She said he was the first person
she thought of after receiving the e-
mail asking if she wanted to nomi-
nate a teacher for the awards.
"For someone who makes such a
big impact on you your first year of
medical school, you don't forget
someone like that," she said.
"You read an e-mail like that and
Dr. Gest just pops into your head,"
she added.
Anatomy is known for being
unpleasant and the hardest class a
student will take in the first year of
medical school, Brooks said, but
thanks to Gest she will look back
on anatomy as a "genuinely pleas-
ant experience."
"He spends a lot of time with us
and it's motivating. It makes us feel
that the time we put into anatomy is
worth it because Dr. Gest is there to
back us up and is there to help us,"
she said.
Brooks also spoke of Gest's dedi-
cation to his students and the pas-
sion he brings to his teaching.
"If you look when he pulls his
calendar up you can see he doesn't
take a lunch hour. He books straight
through lunch, at least during the
two weeks before finals and meets
with small groups of students,"
Brooks said.
I've seen him in every Sunday
before we have a Monday exam
teaching people, working with
groups of people and individuals."
Renee Goodreau, another of
Gest's first-year Medical students,
said the professor deserves to be
"He's really instilled a great
sense of respect for what we're
doing and the bodies we're using,"
she said. "It's easy to learn from
someone who's so passionate about
what they do and I think that's why
we've really latched on to him."

would appeal to the audience and discuss all
aspects of college life."
In hopes of receiving more speech candidates for
next commencement, the committee has decided to
advertise better in the future.
"There weren't very many submissions," Cure-
ton said. "We didn't engage a very wide pool. We
would have liked to see more, so we are consider-
ing sending a mass e-mail to advertise to students
in the future."
