it's an incredible asset both in terms of the knowl-
edge it generates and the graduates it produces."
However, Duderstadt said the gap between what
Michigan has and what it needs to become a func-
tioning participant in the new knowledge-driven
global economy is significant. He also said it seems
no one is willing to provide the means to close that
gap, especially when it comes to higher education.
Duderstadt also pointed out that there is a shortage
of jobs for Michigan's college-educated workforce.
"There are a lot of telltale signs, but I think one of
the more serious ones is that so many young people
from the ages of college graduates through their
thirties leave this state and go elsewhere to find jobs
because we're not creating them," Duderstadt said.
Duderstadt said Michigan's economic and edu-
cational woes are the fault of the state as a whole,
but primarily blamed the state government.
"My sense is that Gov. (Jennifer) Granholm
understands these issues, but we have a badly divid-
ed state government with a Republican-controlled
Legislature and a Democratic governor," he said.
Duderstadt acknowledged that many of the state's
problems are a result of a structural deficit.
"The reason we're running big budget deficits
is that we're trying to finance a state using a 20th-
century tax system for a 21st-century economy," he
said. "Our tax system still assumes that most of the
revenue for the state is created through manufactur-
ing, and it isn't, it's created through services, and we
don't tax services."
After identifying problems with Michigan's
economy, Duderstadt's roadmap offers several rec-
ommendations for solving the most pressing issues.
He suggests everything from investing more heav-
ily in technologies such as broadband connectivity
to moving into the top quarter of states in higher
More specifically, Duderstadt said an idea
recently floated by U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz (R-Battle
Creek) to create a permanent source of funding for
higher education would be a positive change.
"I have suggested that one of the problems is that
higher education is viewed as discretionary, so that
means: pay all the bills you have to, and the crumbs
that are left over you give to higher ed," Duderstadt
said. "I think Joe Schwarz is right on target. Higher
education should be mandatory like K-12, and if
that takes a constitutional amendment, so be it."
Schwarz's plan has garnered criticism from
Michigan legislators who said a nondiscretionary
fund for higher education is impossible without a
dedicated revenue stream.
"I think it would be a great plan if Schwarz wants
to fund it. I welcome his federal funding," said state
Rep. Glenn Steil (R-Kent). "It's not about whether
that's a bad idea or a good idea - it's about the fea-
sibility of it."
Ultimately, Duderstadt said he believes serious
problems will manifest themselves in Michigan if
changes are not made soon, and reports like the
roadmap are not taken seriously.
"What will happen if changes aren't made is that
our young people will go elsewhere, leaving behind
an aging population that will no longer have the tax
base to support the services they need," Duderstadt
said. "Increasingly impoverished and out-of-work
unskilled people with little hope or opportunity will
be the only ones left."

allows students to rate landlords based on how
cooperative they are.
Both Masuda and the Seaslys gave their land-
lords one out of five points - the lowest rating.
One option for students facing landlord disputes
is to approach the University's Housing Informa-
tion Office. Here, housing advisors are available
to offer advice on how to communicate with land-
lords and how to avoid or resolve possible con-
flicts. In addition, the office also mediates disputes
between the feuding parties, possibly preventing
the need for legal action. First, the disputing par-
ties sign a form verifying they will follow in good
faith what is agreed upon in the meeting. Then, a
housing advisor helps the parties involved reach a
compromise on their own. According to the Off-
Campus Housing Program, the service has been
successful for many users who seek help for vari-
ous housing issues.
Another resource is Student Legal Services.
Each year, students pay fees to cover the salaries
of SLS lawyers. One of the services SLS provides
is consultation on student housing issues. SLS
encourages students who have problems and may
need legal counsel to call for advice. Indeed, SLS
hopes to implement a new attorney next year that
will deal specifically with landlord-tenant disputes
by tracking complaints, litigating and lobbying on
behalf of tenants.
LSA junior Luke Spaete is one student who has
turned to the help of SLS for mitigating a prob-
lem he had with Oakland Management. Recently,
Oakland charged Spaete and his roommates more
than $130 for damage to an air conditioning unit
located on the outside of their house. But Spaete
said he and his roommates are not the culprits,
and there is no evidence to show that they are in
Spaete said he only turned to SLS after he was
unable to work out the conflict with Oakland on
his own. "I went to see (my landlord) in person,
and he just turned and walked away from me,"
said Spaete. SLS set up an appointment with him
to go over the situation with a lawyer.
"Hopefully, this will remedy the situation,"'he said
