versity of Michigan Health System. "We
have a longstanding commitment to envi-
ronmental stewardship, and this is part of
Robert Kelch, the University's execu-
tive vice president for medical affairs,
said the extra money is worth it.
"We researched the process extensive-
ly and concluded that the cost associated
with this will be warranted over the long
term" Kelch told the regents.
The cost of the hospital will be cov-
ered by UMHS funds and donations.
University Regent David Brandon and
his wife Jan, along with head football
coach Lloyd Carr and his wife Laurie, are
leading a fundraising drive to benefit the
hospital. Their project has already raised
$46 million toward the new hospital.
In approving the design, the regents
approved an increase in the hospital's
size. The hospital will occupy 1.1 mil-
lion square feet, an increase from the 1
million originally planned. Included in
that 1.1 million.square feet are 180,000
square feet of shell space for programs
for future expansion.
The current children's hospital is about
272,000 square feet.
"We're trying to think about what may
be coming down the road in terms of
medical advancements," Hopson said.
The hospital will be L-shaped, with
one nine-floor wing mainly dedicated to
clinics and offices and a 12-floor wing
mainly to inpatient and emergency care.
The inpatient care wing will make up
about 75 percent of the total space, and
clinics and offices will make up the
remaining 25 percent.
Located on the intersection of East
Medical Center Drive and East Hospital
Drive across the street from Mary Mar-
kley Residence Hall, the Mott hospital
will replace a parking lot.
Last year, 11,955 children were admit-
ted or born at Mott.

depiction of the prophet, even if
it is positive, Blauvelt said depict-
ing the prophet was not the main
offense in the controversy. Images
of Muhammad are seen in Islamic
art from different periods and a bas
relief of the prophet also appears in
the U.S. Supreme Court along with
other influential leaders.
Islamic scholar Yusuf Abdul-
lah said mobs of rioting Muslims
in a number of countries feel the.
prophet and in turn the religion
have been disrespected. As both
a spiritual and political leader,
Muhammad is a central example
of the principles of Islam, Abdul-
lah said at the event.
Organizers, however, made it
clear that Islamic leaders have con-
demned the mob violence surround-
ing the cartoons' publications.
The discussion at the event
became most tense when it shift-
ed from the specific instance of
the recent cartoons to the line
between free speech and respect-
ing the customs of other religions.
Audience members raised ques-
tions about why the organizers
thought free speech didn't apply
to something that a group of peo-
ple considered blasphemous and
said criticism of Muhammad was
no different than cartoons mock-
ing Jesus or Moses.
Muslim organizers refuted these
claims by saying mockery of Jesus,
Moses or any other prophets rec-
ognized in Islam would be just as
offensive but did not clearly respond
to why criticizing prophets was not
protected by free speech, except to
say that the prophet embodied the
But the organization is plan-
ning to expand on the issue after
spring break with a panel discus-
sion addressing the line between
free expression and respect for
religion, Blauvelt said.
Shaukat said the group hopes
to cover questions surrounding
the controversy with more activi-
ties including writing editorials
and organizing other events.
Before the discussion began
Friday night, organizers showed
the PBS documentary "Muham-
mad: Legacy of the Prophet" to
provide background and dem-
onstrate to the audience the
reverence Muslims held for the
The event also gave Mus-
lim students an opportunity to
educate the audience about the
Islamic faith, Shaukat said. She
added that reacting peacefully to
the controversy would be more in
tune with the prophet's teachings
and a more accurate embodiment
of his character.
Response to the event, was
strong with about 150 people
crowding the Pond Room of the
Union to watch the documentary
and participate in the discussion.
Leading up the event the group
even held back on publicity efforts
once organizers realized the room
would not be able to accommq-
date the interest, Blauvelt said.
From March 15 to 17, the ass6-
ciation will also hold its annual
"A Day in the Life" outreach
program that pairs non-Muslim
students with a Muslim student
to shadow through daily prayer,
everyday activities and Friday
The program's goal is to show
participants that Muslims are not
that different from themselves, pro-
gram organizer Riaz Tootla said.

to drop off papers or pick up
things they had forgotten. Other
problems with parking mostly
centered on the ability to park in
front of or near their own houses.
The group thought that one
way to deal with parking would
be to make the parking zone map
- found at City Hall - more
easily accessible to all students.
Another issue was the condi-
tion of sidewalks during winter.
Icy sidewalks are the responsi-
bility of landlords, but some stu-
dents said their sidewalks were
The longest discussion con-
cerned the safety of off-campus
One of the main concerns
was whether students know how
dangerous their neighborhoods
are. Students spoke about poor
lighting in certain parts of the
area, especially on Cambridge
Students were most worried
about walking home from librar-
ies late at night. Though the Uni-
versity provides programs like
S.A.F.E. Walk to escort students
home at night, which some said
rarely responds to requests in a
Many students conveyed
worry that the Department of
Public Safety was too focused on
giving tickets, and not focused
on campus safety.
Though it was brought up,
students were unable to come up
with a solution to increase the
trust between students and DPS.
MPP members consulted with
Dale Winling, a Rackham stu-
dent who is the director of the
New West Side Association, a
group representing the interests
of renters and students. Win-
ling said he approved of MPP's
plans. Nowinski said the two
groups would not conflict.
