those matters is to be interpreted.
At the rally, LEO campus chair Ian Robinson
demanded that the University treat the lectur-
ers with "sufficient respect," rather than provide
excuses for their sluggish efforts. He also said he
hoped the rally and picket would pressure the Uni-
versity to act quickly, though he left open the pos-
sibility of further labor agitation in April if LEO
deems it necessary.
LEO staged a one-day walkout last April when
contract negotiations with the University failed.
"The University wants to hold us to high stan-
dards. We want to hold them to high standards as
well," Robinson said.
LEO has been demanding the criteria used when
evaluating lecturers, as well as the list of lecturers
who are to be reviewed this semester. LEO had
requested that colleges within the University pro-
vide them with the criteria by Feb. 1 and the list of
lecturers up for performance review by Feb. 11, but
the University ignored those requests because the
deadlines were not in the contract.
Some of the colleges, such as the College of
Engineering and Residential College, have pro-
vided LEO with necessary details, while others
- including the College of Literature, Science,
and the Arts - have not yet released the crite-
ria, said Robinson.

University spokeswoman Julie Peterson said
several schools and colleges, including LSA,
the Business School and the College of Engi-
neering, have submitted their lists of lectur-
ers to the University. She added that this week
the University is in the process of sharing the
names with LEO and contacting the lecturers
who are up for review.
"The University is trying to live up to the prin-
ciples we agreed to in the contract, but as a practical
matter we are finding it much more difficult than
we anticipated. Still, we're continuing to work with
both LEO and the academic units to move toward
implementation," Peterson said.
Another point of contention is the classifica-
tion of lecturers. Last year's contract divided
lecturers into four categories - those who
are classified as Lecturer I or II are limited to
instructional duties, with Lecturer II having
more job security. Those with a III or IV des-
ignation will have administrative duties in addi-
tion to teaching, with Lecturer IV having more
job security. Because Lecturer IV was added to
the system last year, reclassification of some lec-
turers has caused dissent among them.
This classification system creates problems with
job security and salary, said Pamela Bogart, a lec-
turer in the English Language Institute. Bogart is
currently classified as Lecturer II because of her
involvement in the creation of new courses and
development of workshops for the training of grad-

uate student instructors. Bogart, however, is being
reclassified as a Lecturer I, which prevents her from
doing the administrative work that serves students
and the University.
"The five years I spent dedicated to the Univer-
sity mean nothing," Bogart said. She added that the
University's actions exploit lecturers because their
previous work is not being adequately recognized
or compensated.
Last Wednesday, LEO members met with
University Provost Paul Courant to voice their
concerns about the University's refusal to meet
suggested deadlines.
LEO President Bonnie Halloran said the pro-
vost took responsibility for the University's delay
in meeting its contractual obligations and said he
would get back to LEO about the colleges' progress
in developing and providing criteria. Halloran said
Courant failed to provide any updates by last Fri-
day, as he had promised.
"They make a lot of promises but nothing (has
emerged). We remain hopeful, but deadlines are not
being met and we are still waiting for information,"
Halloran said.
Melinda Matice, an ELI lecturer, said she hopes
the University takes yesterday's rally as a sign that
LEO will not back away from its cause.
"We are not going to wait another six months.
(The University is) months and months behind.
This is the first step in responding to the slow prog-
ress and minimal efforts," Matice said.

Education and Development model.
"The Statement of Student Rights and
Responsibilities is but one of (the) many
educational tools we have on campus that
teaches what it means to live in and contrib-
ute to a community," OSCR Director Keith
Elkin said.
"In this case, the Community Education
and Development Plan provides the most
optimal opportunity for teaching and learn-
ing, focusing on core University values."
Elkin said the CED incorporates various
goals for the improvement and development
of leadership skills, new member education
and risk management education and that
national and alumni groups and numerous
offices in the Division of Student Affairs
are involved with each Greek organization.
"The Community Education and Devel-
opment Plan represents a process grounded
in teaching and learning, facilitated by a
broad coalition of students and staff," Elkin
said. "Each organization has been working
within this coalition to identify individual
action plans that best meets their needs."
The new leadership of the Interfrater-
nity Council and the Panhellenic Associa-
tion, which took over at the beginning of
the semester, has consistently reiterated its
commitment to eliminating hazing in the
Greek community but says it recognizes
that hazing is a complex issue.
"Hazing is by no means a problem that
is going to be solved overnight, nor do we
know the exact formula that will cease haz-
ing on campus," said IFC Vice President
of Public Relations Jon Krasnov. "Clearly,
hazing has been a priority for previous
administrations, as it has been significantly
curbed in recent years, but we will continue
to work ... toward creating a more effective
proactive approach toward ending hazing
in Greek houses," he said. "The IFC execu-
tive board has made it clear to houses that
we are here to help them - to help lead the
community (and) to help all of our houses
move forward as individual chapters as well
as a whole."
Panhel spokeswoman Lindsey Fediuk
said next year the Panhellenic Association
will work to educate leaders of the Greek
community on all forms of hazing as well
as how to stop the practice of hazing prior
to the recruitment of new members. In addi-
tion, there will be a new anti-hazing cam-
paign intended to increase use of the hazing
hotline in the fall.
"Harsher sanctions and punitive mea-
sures levied by the Greek Activities Review

Panel we hope will further curtail hazing
activities," Fediuk added, "as well as dis-
courage repeat offenses in the future."
Fediuk and Krasnov also said that both
IFC and Panhel welcomed the opportunity
to work in conjunction with the University
and the Office of Student Conflict Resolu-
tion in the effort to eradicate hazing at the
University, although the Greek community's
Hazing Task Force and the Greek Activi-
ties Review Panel are intended to promote
autonomy for the community through self-
Alex Feldman, president of Sigma Nu
- one of the fraternities found guilty of
hazing by the University - said that the
fraternity's leadership has been meeting
regularly with OSCR and other Univer-
sity personnel in a proactive attempt to
strengthen the chapter and its relationship
with the University.
"We have always been a nonhazing fra-
ternity, and we will continue to remain a
nonhazing fraternity, but we are working
with the University in other realms to make
our fraternity more active and more suc-
cessful," Feldman said.
Another fraternity punished as a result
of the hazing investigation was Zeta Beta
Tau. ZBT President Joshua Banschick said
the chapter has taken an active approach in
dealing with the hazing allegations since
the investigation began last October.
"We began by clarifying the initial base-
less claims and false allegations, and then
continued to deal with the truth. I set up
meetings with our National Executive Direc-
tor and the Assistant Director of Greek Life
John Duncan for support and guidance in
dealing with our situation," Banschick said.
"After these meetings, our executive board
was prepared to improve ZBT internally.
We educated our membership on the details
of hazing - its legal consequences, as well
as its especially wide breadth."
Banschick also said that in an effort to
prevent hazing from occurring again within
ZBT, he and two other members of ZBT
attended meetings with OSCR to develop
the CED model.
In addition, Banschick said he feels that
ZBT's punishment as a result of the hazing
investigation is appropriate and will ultimately
be beneficial to the fraternity in helping them
achieve their impending goals.
"ZBT will work with the IFC and the
University in the same fashion as it has all
year. We will remain active and closely tied
to both organizations," Banschick said. "In
fact, I believe this whole process has helped
strengthen the relationship between ZBT
and both the IFC and the University."

disappointed with the second revision
because its members felt the resolution
lost some of its power.
"It's still important that (the resolution)
passed because it's significant that this
student government supports the Coke-
Campaign Coalition," RC Junior Ashwini
Hardikar, co-chair of MSA's Peace and Jus-
tice Commission, said, "I am disappointed
that we chose to tone down the language."
The resolution was divided into two parts;
the first dealt with whether MSA believed in
the allegations brought against Coca-Cola, a
measure that the assembly approved.
Hardikar described the vote as a victory
for the coalition.
"The first resolution that confirmed
Coke's violations was passed without any
changes, putting the student government
in solidarity with the people of Colombia
and India," Hardikar said.
Because students have protested and
complained about Coca-Cola, Purchasing
Services at the University has started a
formal investigation. It is currently gath-
ering information to present a recom-
mendation to the Dispute Review Board,

which is composed of students, faculty
and staff.
The Dispute Review Board will make
a recommendation to the University's
executive vice president and to the chief
financial officer.
University spokeswoman Julie Peterson
said the resolution would play a signifi-
cant part in the overall decision to renew
Coke's contract in June.
Members of Purchasing have been
gathering information from both sides
of the issue, and have already met with
Coca-Cola. Purchasing will meet with
members of SOLE and the coalition
today. Accordng to Peterson, Purchasing
will take MSA's resolution into serious
consideration when advising the Dispute
Review Board.
"It's important for purchasing and the
review board to understand students'
opinions on this issue," Peterson said.
"What's important is that the student
assembly has unanimously supported
student groups who are pursuing justice
on the Coca-Cola issue," said RC junior
Ryan Bates, co-chair of MSA's Peace and
Justice commission.

United States will get out of Iraq.
"We need to help create an army, police and national guard
that's Iraqi," Levin said. "We can help train, but we cannot secure
Iraq. Another thing that I believe strongly we can do is change that
dynamic. The choice is to either leave - which I don't think we
can do now - or to enter into an agreement with a sovereign Iraqi
government, so that we're there like we are in South Korea."
Levin voted against the joint congressional resolution that
authorized Bush to use military force to disarm Iraq in 2002.
Levin sponsored an amendment to the bill that would have
required Bush to get United Nations authorization or prove
to Congress that Iraq was an imminent threat before he could
attack Iraq. The amendment was defeated 77 to 24.
"I thought the president's arrogance, cockiness and lack of
planning for the aftermath were huge mistakes that cost us dear-
ly," Levin said.
The Michigan senator also addressed the electoral strategy of
the Democratic Party -which lost last November's presidential
election and lost seats in two consecutive congressional elections.
Levin said the party must change the way it talks about values
and social issues but not shed its beliefs.
"What we have to do as Democrats is focus our appeal to
people's needs. Keep focusing on what matters in people's
lives. At the same time we address the so-called wedge
issues. I believe we should address wedge issues honestly.
I don't believe we can hedge on whether a woman has the
right to choose," Levin said.
