of Romance language classes, 85 per-
cent of Asian languages and 80 percent
of sociology classes, they said they felt
their transient presence on staff is "bad
and unacceptable," said Ian Robinson,
co-chair of LEO's organizing commit-
tee. "We are going to stop working
within a system that works within these
kind of rules."
Lecturers are not guaranteed employ-
ment. Instead hiring decisions are made
a year-to-year or term-to-term basis,
LEO advocates say. This is particularly
problematic for international lecturers,
who cannot weather tenuous working
Invoking the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights written by the United
Nations, Rackham student Luis Martin-
Cabrera asserted that worker rights are
human rights. F. Kenneth Chaves, presi-
dent of the University Skilled Trades
Union, spoke of wage disparities among
Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campus-
es. Lecturers in Ann Arbor are paid sig-
"I wouldn't advocate this type of
labor for farm workers," Robinson said.
RC Prof. Charles Bright, who has
lectured for more than a decade,
spoke of the declining recognition for
lecturers, who were once paid as
much as assistant professors. "Many
lecturers on this campus are here by
choice," he said. In the early-'90s,
when Bright noticed administration
officials asking lecturers to teach
more, even as salaries had stayed
stagnant for 20 years, he notified his
bosses of his dismay.
In response, his dean offered Bright a
professorship, but his issues were never
addressed. After public comments had
been made, Perry, representing MSA,
spoke to the board members about the
Diversity Summit held last week. At the
summit, senior administration officials
spoke with students about diversity and
the campus climate. Attendees included
University Provost Paul Courant and
Robert Kelch, executive vice president
for medical affairs.
This year's decline in minority appli-
cants - down 23 percent, compared to
18 percent across the board - has
raised concern among students about the
University's plans to maintain diversity.
"I urge you all to not sit down and
wait to see what will happen but to
proactively seek (student input)," Perry
said to the board. She said that mem-
bers of the MSA Diversity Council are
concerned about what will happen to
diversity 10 years from now.
In response, Coleman said the
administration is assessing the infor-
mation gleaned from the summit and
will issue a report when this is com-
pleted. But Regent Rebecca
McGowan (D-Ann Arbor) stressed
that students would probably like a
more timely response. Kelch said the
administration is still committed to
diversity. "I will be working with
President Coleman on that and with
my own staff at the medical center,"
he said. Board members approved the
naming of the Gerald R. Ford School
of Public Policy. The building will be
named Sanford and Joan Weill Hall,
after the married couple - friends of
former President Ford - who recent-
ly gave $5 million to the school.

cerns me that my teacher has no securi-
ty, so we're showing up to show sup-
port," Bielaczyc said.
Members from Students Organizing
for Labor and Economic Equality and
the Graduate Employees Organization
also joined in to support LEO.
"The important thing is to work
together as unions to show the Universi-
ty that unions don't just stick to our own
unions, but all University employees
stick to the same issues - its about sol-
idarity," said Pete Soppelsa a graduate
University spokeswoman Julie Peter-
son said the terms have not yet been set-
tled for the various grievances that have
been expressed by LEO.
"Right now we are discussing issues
of mutual concern and exchanging data.
The major focus of our conversation
currently is the appointment process.
There is a wide range in the circum-
stances under which these instructors
are employed in the various academic
units. We have not yet begun to discuss
salary and benefits," Peterson said.
Negotiations with the University
began in August 2003. LEO is looking
to sign a first contract with the Univer-
sity by March 2004.

In 2003, former Illinois Gov.
George Ryan commuted all 156 death
sentences, before leaving office.
He said he felt the death penalty
deliberately targets minorities and
poor people, as well as the possibili-
ties of executing someone innocent.
Students on campus cited philosoph-
ical reasons for opposing the return of
the death penalty to Michigan.
LSA senior AndyPark, who is
from Illinois said his views have
been shaped by his state's practices.
"Capital punishment in general is
wrong and the criminal justice sys-
tem isn't very (effective)."
LSA senior Velma Hutchins said
she is against the death penalty
because it is morally wrong. She
said emotion too often distorts
judgments when murder is
involved"I definitely feel it's not
our place to punish people by death.
... It would make us similar to (the

less of ethnicity or creed are equal
to one another.
Mohammed began his speech by
citing the struggles of blacks in the
United States and how they had to
endure the cultural changes of being
separated from Africa. He added that
once blacks arrived in America, they
had to live under a new identity that
was detrimental to their spirit.
"Would you like someone to take
you from your past homeland and
bring you to a new region, where.
they give you a name like Negro?"
Mohammed asked audience mem-
Mohammed said the separation of
blacks from Africa only created a
longing for them to find their own
Yet when blacks looked at their
homeland, they were only given
images of an Africa that was uncivi-
lized. He cited the fictional charac-
ter of Tarzan as a negative image
that promoted that thought.
"Tarzan was a stupid white person
because he had grown up in Africa.
... And he was leading crowds of
animals and blacks."
But once this negative image of
Africa was overcome, Mohammed
said when blacks looked at Africa to
find their origins they still could not
identify themselves with their home-
"I had an idea back then to go
back to Africa and celebrate. But
now that frightens me. The condi-
tions are terrible (in Africa). There is
no way to go back there and to cele-
brate," he said.
To Mohammed, the only way to
create a strong identity for blacks is
to look back not at the racial origins
or the religious origins of blacks, but
to the beginnings of man. "We hope
that all of us identify with a spiritual
makeup which is the human reality,"
LSA senior Wasseem Abaza agreed
with Mohammed's vision and said he
only wished more students could have
attended. "He discussed unity
amongst all people, how we are all
children of the (Earth). All the differ-
ences of race and nationality, they all
came after that. We all came from the
same source so we should be treated
equally," Abaza said.
The reality is that all people are
born from the earth and not from
another person, and so all people are
connected, Mohammed said.
"If we return to that, we can share
with each other and work to remove
misery," he added.
For blacks that are Muslim,
observing the religion is only a part
of the tasks they must fulfill
Mohammed said. They still have to
follow the path the religion provided
- a path to achieving a vision of
Working to realize this identity,
not just for blacks or Muslims, but
also for all people, is the most sig-
nificant of all identities because it is
the truest, he added.
"Whether you're Christian or
Muslim you need to go back to your
human reality. Not on a plane back

his plans for volunteering at the Summer
Games in Athens. "I plan on going this
summer. The volunteers do everything
from selling lemonade to escorting ath-
letes or dignitaries," he explained.
Anastasia Yendiki, Engineering
graduate student and president of
HSA, also shared her anticipation of
this summer's Games. "It's important
to a lot of people in our organization
- the Olympics are going back to
Greece. People feel proud about
that." The modern Games were first
held in Athens, Greece by a young
Frenchman named Pierre de Cou-
bertin, who thought that athletics were
crucial to human development.
