pating in the 24-hour vigil on the Diag or
giving donations to sponsor the event.
Both Roth and Lacks expressed high
hopes for this event because it will ensure
that genocide will never occur again. "If
we can raise awareness and create a dia-
logue on campus about the Holocaust, this
will have been a huge success in my eyes,"
In another effort to increase student
discussion and involvement with the con-
ference, Hillel has worked with Consider
Magazine to issue an edition that is parallel
to the event. Hillel is one of the main spon-
sors of Consider, which was founded more
than 20 years ago and serves as a forum
for discussion on issues that interest both
students and faculty. The issue, which
is scheduled to come out today, focuses
on the question, "What does the phrase
'Never again' mean?"
Consider Magazine's co-editor, Ariez
Dustoor, sees this as an opportunity for
students to express their views on the
Holocaust and its effects on the world
today. "I definitely think Holocaust issues
and genocide issues are important. I hope
this kind of gets people talking a little
bit," Dustoor said.

Gary Krenz, Coleman's special coun-
sel, said Courant picked an appropriate
time to leave.
"Because his term lasts through the end
of August, he will see us through the bud-
get cycle," Krenz said.
Courant said he plans to take a year of
leave before continuing at the University
as a professor. He plans to spend that time
taking courses, reading, writing and being
with his son, who is in high school.
"I'll be around; I just won't be wearing
a tie as much," Courant said.
After his year off, Courant said he wants
to go back to his previous role as a profes-
sor in the economics department and the
Ford School of Public Policy, researching
interests he developed while serving as
provost - such as library economics and
scholarly communications - as well as
the management and budgetary concerns
of complex organizations such as univer-
sities. He said he will welcome the chance
to spend time thinking, researching and
interacting with students, but will miss
the pace and breadth that go along with
the provost's job.
"It's very demanding and continually
fascinating," Courant said. "Like any
good job, the job was both terrifically
satisfying and terribly frustrating."
Edie Goldenberg, former LSA dean,
said she is not surprised that Courant is
leaving - anyone who holds the office
of provost, she said, is prone to burning
The search for a replacement will begin
almost immediately. Coleman said she
will announce the appointment of a fac-
ulty member to chair a search commit-
tee for a new provost in a few days. More
information about the search process and
opportunities to nominate candidates will
be posted on Coleman's website and in
the University Record.'
Krenz said it will be a challenge to find
a replacement who matches Courant's
ability but that it can be done.
"Frankly, we have a history of very
good provosts here," he said.
Aside from his work on the budget and
easing Coleman into her role, Courant led
the development of M-PACT - the Uni-
versity's new financial aid grant program
for in-state residents - and coordinated
the partnership between the University
Library and Google to digitize seven mil-
lion volumes in the library's collection.
"Paul's dedication to this university is
unmatched, and we owe him our deepest
appreciation," Coleman said.

defective marrow with the healthy donor's. Then, if the proce-
dure goes well, Revyan's body will again be able to produce white
blood cells in large numbers.
But Revyan must compete with thousands looking for a match
- each year, 35,000 people are diagnosed with diseases that
could be treated with bone marrow transplants -and her search
is further complicated by the fact that she is Korean. Asians make
up just 8 percent of the 5 million people registered in the National
Bone Marrow Donor Program database.
Those of the same race are more alike genetically, which means
their bone marrow is more likely to be compatible. The best hope
for a match outside of a person's family, therefore, comes from other
members of this same race. Revyan is adopted and cannot test her
family for a match. This means that Revyan's-and all minorities'-
chances of finding a match are severely lowered.
Not only is the database lacking Asians, but all minorities,
from blacks to Native Americans to Latinos are underrepresent-
ed, said Tereeta Gibson, who supervises bone marrow drives for
To give hope and the potential of a cure to people like Revyan, a
minority bone marrow drive will take place today at the University.
The drive will be held today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the
Anderson room of the Michigan Union and in room 3817 of
the Medical Science II building of the Medical School. The
drive is open to all races but focused on registering minori-
ties in the database.
Gibson stressed that the drive merely registers a participant in
the NBMDP database - no transplants are actually done.
The entire process takes at most 15 minutes, Gibson said.
"You fill out a consent form and a survey on your medical
history, then we prick your finger and put a blood sample on
a piece of paper, then you're done."
The participant is then registered in the NBMDP database and
can be called upon at any time should a compatible recipient be
found. If a match is found, he has the option of undergoing the
transplant procedure - which is longer and more involved than
the registration process - or declining.
The drive is sponsored by the United Asian American Medical
Student Association, Lambda Phi Epsilon, Alpha Kappa Delta Phi
and the Chinese Students Association.
The ultimate goal of these minority bone marrow drives is to
give minorities as good of a chance at finding a donor as white,
And for Revyan, the importance of finding a donor soon cannot

Jesse Levine, student general
counsel of MSA and the Students 4
Michigan presidential candidate for
next week's MSA elections, echoed
Mironov's statements, saying the
timing of the resolution ignores the
recent progress made in the peace
process and that such a resolution
"doesn't necessarily make sense
Today's vote is expected to draw
the largest turnout of MSA repre-
sentatives and constituents of any
MSA meeting this year. The meeting,
scheduled for 7:30 p.m., has been relo-
cated from the MSA chambers to the
Michigan Union's Kuenzel Room to
accommodate the anticipated crowd.
A resolution supporting divest-
ment from Israel was last brought
before MSA in April 2003, but that
resolution was pulled by its sponsors
before it could be voted on because
of an apparent lack of support in the
Students Allied for Freedom and
Equality President Carmel Salhi said
the resolution to be presented today
will have a better chance of success.
"If the proper information is given
and the resolution is presented in its
true light, I think it has a very good
chance at succeeding," Salhi said.
Rachel Snyder, co-chair of Ameri-
can Movement for Israel, said the
resolution would damage the rela-
tionship between pro-Israeli and pro-
Palestinian groups on campus.
"I'm hoping it doesn't pass, and I
know there's a big constituency of
students that hope it won't pass,"
Snyder said. "Right now the peace
process is going really well, and I
know there's a great amount of sup-
port for Israel and Palestine to reach
a peaceful resolution on campus.
This is not the time to bring up a
resolution that brings down one side
of the conflict."
The resolution is supported by
SAFE, Muslim Students' Associa-
tion, Pakistani Students' Association,
Native American Student Associa-
tion and several other student groups
and faculty members.
