thing ... let's not kill, let's work
with our fellow human being."
Also sponsoring the event
was the Megiddo Peace Project,
which Haber founded.
The project is aiming to
stage a two-week "International
Art for Peace Festival" using
Haber's carpentry and other
art and music. Haber created
the group with his wife, Odile
"The Megiddo Project is a
continuation of (Students for a
Democratic Society)," Haber
Haber added that there needs
to be an SDS on campus today
so that students "are learning
how to transform their society."

is actually a 1.3-percent decrease from
this year's original allocation.
"If you look from one year to the
next, our base appropriation has been
declining four years in a row," Peter-
son said. "It's important for people to
see that big picture - this is part of an
ongoing series of cuts."
Former University Provost Paul Cou-
rant commented on the -budget alloca-
tion in a presentation to the University
Board of Regents in July:
"Another perspective on the past
four years comes from comparing the
state appropriation with what it would
have been had it merely kept pace with
inflation in consumer prices. In 2002,
the appropriation was $363 million.
Had it kept pace with inflation, in 2006
it would be $396 million," he said.
At a regents meeting last Thurs-
day, University President Mary Sue
Coleman commented on the decrease
in funding: "This is about what we
expected, and what we planned for in
the University budgeting process this
year. Of course, my hope is that there
will be some progress toward more
predictable and robust levels of support
in the future. "This continues to be a
challenging situation," Coleman said.
Peterson said there is no chance of a
cancellation of the approximately $1,000
tuition hike approved by the regents in July.
While the Senate's floor-funding plan
would not affect the University, which
already receives $8,104 per student,
Universities such as Grand Valley, Oak-
land and Saginaw Valley would receive
more funding in the hopes of lessening
the disparity between appropriations
for different colleges in Michigan.
Senator Mike Goschka (R-Brandt),
a member of the Senate Appropriations
Higher Education Subcommittee snid
the original difference between schools
that were well funded and schools that
weren't was unacceptable. "We felt it was
important to say that regardless of where
you go to school in this state there should
be a minimum amount of state dollars
that would go to support any of our 15
public universities," Goschka said. Dur-
ing the current fiscal year, Wayne State
University receives $8,665 per student
while Grand Valley receives $3,072.
University Vice President for Govern-
ment Relations Cynthia Wilbanks said
the state government has been working
hard to support higher education.
"This is the fourth year that the state
has been struggling vitally with an eco-
nomic downturn, and there are realities
that are associated with that," she said.
"I do think the governor is completely
aware of the importance of higher edu-
cation. It's the stress and strain of the
economic conditions that don't allow
for a better outcome."

action by supporting the Michigan
Civil Rights Initiative. MCRI is a
state ballot initiative that aims to end
the use of affirmative action in Michi-
"(Cohen is) unusually courageous
to talk about affirmative action," said
panelist and RC alum Forde-Mazrui.
"People that oppose it are often called
Although Cohen does not shy away
from controversial positions, Cohn,
one of the panelists at the event, said
many faculty members ask themselves,
'Will I get in trouble for this?' before
openly articulating certain viewpoints.
"There's a tremendous fear on campus
to be labeled politically incorrect,"
agreed a member of the audience.
"On the surface, we are free," Cohen
said. "But there are pressures of conven-
tion at the University that make people
not speak out (about) some views."
But some audience members argued
that faculty members should abstain
from voicing their opinions in order to
maintain their objectivity in class. Pan-
elists also debated if free speech should
be allowed if it might offend members
of the public.
Wayne State University Law School
Dean Frank Wu said the rubric for
approriate free speech is not if it offends
the public. Instead Wu said approri-
ate free speech would aim to create
dialogue between people of opposing
A founder of the Residential College,
Cohen embodies the RC's commitment to
debate and open dialogue, Regester said.
Two hundred and twenty three stu-
dent members of a Facebook group
"RC, The Residential College - the
Best Thing to Happen to U-M Since
Student Activism" seem to agree. They
chose Cohen, as the mascot for their
group, because he represents what the
RC stands for.
Regester said, "Carl's not afraid to
take controversial positions. He encour-
ages engaging controversy. The RC
definitely supports that, because we all
learn through it."

After speaking for about one hour,
Levin took questions from the audience.
One audience member accused Levin of
dishonesty, saying, "Please don't lie to us;
own up to the truth." The senator respond-
ed indignantly, insisting that all of his facts
were verified in the 9/11 Commission
Report and other government documents.
Several students said they attended
because they were supporters of Senator
Levin or the Democrats, but had mixed
reactions to his speech. Echoing what has
been a frequent complaint about the Dem-
ocratic Party, LSA sophomore Matt Feld-
man, said Levin illustrated the problems
but "didn't really offer any solutions."

"Because (the shower) was right.
next to the clinic, (locals) would pass
by and we would get to meet them,"
"We were reminded of whom we
were working for and if we needed
a hammer, they would run and get it
for us," she said. "I got to contribute
something in a very practical way and
when I left, I knew this facility was
there for them. It was my reward to
know I helped them."
This year, Valsangkar said she aims
to increase the number of participants
to about 50, consisting of physicians
and medical students as well as stu-
dents specializing in construction,
public, health, pharmacy, tutoring and
film and video.
"Our goal is to have enough people
in each discipline (of the project),"
In addition to maintaining construc-
tion efforts, tutoring and operation of
the health clinic, Valsangkar said she
hopes next summer's participants will
be able to accomplish Quito's ever-
increasing objectives, such as instituting
a girls' leadership program in communi-
ty schools, creating a children's library
and establishing medical records for

LSA junior Lindsey Worcester, who
participated as a tutor in the project,
said while she initially thought the
trip would offer her the opportunity to
improve her fluency in Spanish, in the
end she learned much more.
"I got to spend more one-on-one time
with the children. They are so hardwork-
ing and have such a passion for learning,
it was really inspiring," Worcester said.
"Because they don't have the same edu-
cation opportunities as us, they seem to
value it more."
Worcester added that the children
were very patient in dealing with obsta-
cles created by the language barrier.
"I like to think I helped them a little,
but I think I learned a lot more from the
trip. It really did help open my eyes to
our lifestyle here in the states and all
the material items we value that are not
necessary," she said.
"I think people go into experiences
like this to try and help and impact
others," Worcester said, "but I think I
came out of this much more impacted
