Dean lobbies for cost-cutting tuition measures, including student loan relief
Continued from Page 1
Corps is a federally funded philanthropic organi-
zation of more than 50,00 Americans that strives
to improve education, public safety, health and
"Ensuring that the dream of a college educa-
tion and the ability to serve our country can be a
reality for all of our children will go a long way
toward ensuring opportunity for all," Dean said
yesterday in a written statement. "Today's higher
education system simply doesn't work because
our political process has stopped working for all
Dean said he blames the rising costs of higher
education on President Bush's tax cuts, which
have also led his administration to slash funding
for Federal Pell Grant scholarships - need-
based grants awarded to undergraduates of up to
"There are a lot of students like me who have
had their Pell Grants cut," said LSA sophomore
Ramya Raghavan, chair of the University of
Michigan Students for Dean. "I've been waiting
for Dean's platform and this is probably the most
pertinent issue to us" as students.
Although several of Dean's competitors have
released their own education plans, Raghavan
said Dean's is "a little more practical."
Dean says he would pay for his program with
money gained from repealing Bush's tax cuts. He
values his initiative at $7.1 billion.
Dean is not the first candidate to come out
with an education initiative for college students.
U.S. Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, who is
also vying for the Democratic nomination, has
offered college-bound students up to $4,000 for
tuition and another $1,000 to high school stu-
dents who enroll in preparatory programs. But if
they ultimately opt to enter the workforce and
pass up a higher education, their grant money
may go toward covering their job training. Kerry,
who released his plan in September, also hopes
to incorporate community service with college
U.S. Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina has
also raised an ambitious platform for education.
His "College for Everyone" plan, the outlines of
which he unveiled a little less than a year ago,
provides one year of tuition for "every person
who is qualified to attend a public college" and
willing to participate in a work-study program
about 10 hours every week.
But Raghavan said Dean's plan benefits from
"using money we already have available to us
(from repealing the Bush tax cuts) to provide the
services people need."
Other candidates have not yet released
roadmaps for improving higher education. A
written statement provided by the campaign
office of retired Gen. Wesley Clark, former
supreme allied commander of the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization, said Clark is in the process
of finalizing his plan to make college more
Clark "will be setting forth a plan to help
every young person
in this country get the chance to go to col-
lege," the statement said.
Currently, Dean is a frontrunner in the race for
his party's endorsement. He has raised more
campaign money than any of his competitors and
recently received the backing of two of the
nation's largest labor unions - the Service
Employees International Union and the Ameri-
can Federation of State, County and Municipal
Employees. Labor support, a coveted element of
presidential campaigns, has until this week fallen
mostly to U.S. Rep. Dick Gephardt of Missouri.

Response from audience members
BAMN national organizer Luke
Massie commented on Drolet's
views of affirmative action and the
lack and intellectual diversity by
saying, "I think it's a shameful proj-
ect. A ploy. His attempt to segregate
the schools is shameful. He ought to
But LSA sophomore Jeston
Lacroix agreed with Drolet's view
that University professors have a
"Bias is very prevalent on this
campus. Liberal professors make
fun of conservatives and call them
names such as thieves, liars and
cheaters," Lacroix said. He added,
"I don't mind (professors) having
(opinions), but I do mind seeking
out conservatives (for ridicule) in
While a similar study at Michigan
State University is still in the works,
Drolet said initial reports show sim-
ilar but not as disproportionate
findings as at the University of
When asked if the finding of the
prevalence of liberal professors is
reflective of the pool of available
professors in general and therefore
the hiring is unbiased, Drolet said,
"Because conservative professors
tend to gravitate to certain colleges
and not others, I do not know."
Continued from Page 1
unfair, said member Carrie Rhein-
gans. "Maybe they should get out and
try to represent the other 75 percent
of their constituents also," Rheingans
said, referring to an estimate that only
a quarter of MSA's constituents live in
residence halls. She said she believes
it is unfair to focus so much energy
on residence halls, because it
becomes a burden to life in the resi-
"As the policy stands, there's plenty of
space to campaign," Rheingans said.
But Mironov expressed dissatisfac-
tion with the outcome of the RHA
meeting. "We're disappointed that the
Residence Halls Association ruled in
this fashion, however we hope it will
be different in the future," he said.
Wells-Reid said political parties
send candidates to one residence hall
at a time and try to reach every door
before they leave.
He said the candidates find this
method more effective than reaching
a few people in halls spread all over
Students have the option of posting
a "no soliciting" sign on their door,
and MSA is willing to pay for pins
identifying the candidates when they
are inside the residence halls, he
When students campaign for MSA,
generally they seek "saturated areas"
of students, such as fraternities, resi-
dence halls and off-campus housing
neighborhoods with large student
populations, Wells-Reid said.
Safety was also a concern for MSA
candidates, Mironov said.
Normally a group of people cam-
paign together for more safety, he
said. Last year, one candidate cam-
paigning alone was followed by a stu-
dent and had to call the Department
of Public Safety.
Mironov said he believes limiting
the number of students to campaign
for office would increase the occur-
rence of those sorts of incidents.
Although students feel irritated
by soliciting in their residence
halls, some are willing to compro-
mise, realizing the need for a stu-
"It gets annoying," but the rules
should be reasonable, Engineering
sophomore David Castellani.
"I wouldn't like to see the whole
(University) Party walking down my
hall," he said. Still, he feels that the
current limitations are too strict, espe-
cially for residence halls the size of
But some students have had
unpleasant encounters with candi-
dates that make them skeptical of
relaxing the rules.
LSA sophomore George Mike had
his door partially open last year when
a student government candidate was
campaigning in his hall.
He said he was sleeping when the
candidate knocked on his door. When
there was no answer the candidate
knocked again, so that the door
became fully open.
Mike woke up to hear the candidate
say who he was and place a flyer on
the floor of his room.
