many feel is racial targeting by police officers.
"I don't think we necessarily talk about the
full range of bias and hate incidents that occur."
To combat racial bias and hate incidents,
MESA tries to educate the University commu-
nity and empower individuals to discuss sensi-
tive issues, she added.
"We are a place where students share their
experiences and help other people respond to
the incidents," she said.
On Nov. 29, MESA began working
with the University's Division of Student
Affairs on a new campaign to target hate
and bias on campus. The initiative will
include a hotline to report hate crimes
and incidents of bias and a website and
advertising campaign to raise aware-
ness about the importance of respecting
Munoz said she plans to continue the anti-
bias campaign during her temporary term as
Over the next year, MESA will also be deal-
ing with the outcome of the Michigan Civil
Rights Initiative, a 2006 ballot measure that
would ban state institutions from using affirma-
tive action. MESA also seeks to expand the role
of the newly renovated Trotter House, Aqui-
0 Pacania said.
"There is always more work to be done," she
the michigan da
said. "But I feel a sense of accomplishment."
Aqui-Pacania said she decided to resign
before the academic year began.
"It would have been difficult to balance
(starting a family) and serve students," she said,
adding that she eventually plans to return to the
Munoz said Aqui-Pacania has been a strong
leader with good judgment and a talent for facil-
itating discussions about controversial topics.
"She's just really good to talk to about tough
issues," Munoz said.
"If we could get a coordinator who is even
half as dedicated as Patricia, then we would be
in a good position," said LSA junior Brittany
Marino, a member of the Native American Stu-
dent Association who has worked closely with
Last winter, in addition to fulfilling her duties
as MESA director, Aqui-Pacania stepped in to
help NASA plan the annual Ann Arbor Pow
Wow and other cultural events after MESA's
Native American student coordinator resigned,
Aqui-Pacania said she is confident that
Munoz will continue to provide strong leader-
ship for the multicultural community at the
LSA senior Laban King, former vice speaker
of the Black Student Union, said he is also con-
fident in Munoz's abilities but added, "Whoever
takes (Aqui-Pacania's) place will have some big
shoes to fill because she offered her mind and
her heart to the community."

sible strategies to tackle our diversity problem.
After analyzing staff surveys, we concluded that
the Daily can be intimidating for most new writers,
but it was generally not considered an offensive
or discriminatory place to work. While some
multicultural student leaders refused to speak with
commission members, others said there needs to be
more communication between the newspaper and
Several leaders also noted a need for specific
recruitment of minority writers. Many of the
students interviewed said they or other members
of their organization did not understand how to
contact the Daily effectively. Some also stated how-
ever, that in the past year the Daily has been mak-
ing progress to improve its relations with minority
student communities by reaching out to more mul-
The approved recommendations include an
annual conference held at least once a year by the
Daily. A main goal of the conference is to educate
student groups on how to contact the paper with
story ideas or specific concerns. The conference
also aims to answer any questions about how
the paper and its individual sections, such as the
editorial page, operate. Additionally, student
organizations will be able to relay any immediate
questions and concerns directly to Daily editors.
This conference will also be an opportunity for
the Daily to learn and listen. The paper's incom-
ing managing editor, Ashley Dinges, who was an
active commission member, will be responsible
for organizing the first conference, slated to take
place next term. The conference is intended to
be an institutionalized way for student groups to
"check" the Daily and help forge more dialogues.
We will also implement workshops to educate our
staff about multicultural organizations on campus.
These workshops will stress the importance of prac-
ticing sensitivity when reporting, interviewing and
interacting with members of multicultural groups.
They will also stress sensitivity in how Daily staffers
relate to their peers. Workshops will result in more
informed reporting and hopefully a less intimidating
environment for new staffers.
With permission, the Daily also will send more
representatives to recruit at multicultural student
meetings and to become better acquainted with the
intricacies of these organizations. One complaint we
came across was that inexperienced writers often
knew little about a group's members, purposes or
We are also creating a more detailed set of files to
educate writers about various student groups before
they start reporting on them. Groups will be asked
to provide us with anything they think an inexperi-
enced writer should know. This will help orient our
new staffers and cut down on the number of factual
The only recommendation that won't be imple-
mented as suggested in the commission's report
called for a personnel director who would recruit
and initially orient new staffers. Because of the way
the newspaper's sections interact, an entirely new
position won't accomplish much.
Instead, to increase diversity on staff, Ashley
and various other staff members at her discretion
will actively recruit writers by attending multi-
cultural group meetings and reaching out to the
student body. The incoming multicultural beat
adviser, the news editor in charge of multicultural
coverage in the news section, is Tina Hildreth and
she will also assist in these efforts and act as the
Daily's primary liaison with multicultural stu-
dent groups. To contact Ashley Dinges and Tina
Hildreth, e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org and
These measures are being implemented with the
sincerest efforts of our staff right now in preparation
for the new semester and will be carried on from
year to year. It is the Daily's goal to become a more
diverse organization that communicates effectively
and better covers the issues facing multicultural stu-
dent groups on campus. These efforts are intended to
make the Daily a stronger newspaper that can better
fulfill the needs of its readers.

available under the resources section of our website,

and coordinator of the Multicultural Commission.
