She held the title for a year, but
despite a small raise, President
Coleman is no longer ...
LEADEROF
THE SALARY
PACK

By GABE NELSON
Daily StaffReporter
After a year on top, Univer-
sity President Mary Sue Cole-
man has slipped a few rungs
on the list of the highest-paid
public university presidents.
Coleman, who will make
$742,148 this year, dropped
from first to fourth on the
Chronicle of Higher Educa-
tion's annual list.
University of Delaware
President David Roselle,
Purdue University's Martin
Jischke and Mark Emmert of
the University of Washing-
ton all jumped ahead of Cole-
man by earning big raises and
bonuses in the past year. -
Rosae's base salary
increased by more than

$250,000 and Emmert's
by $48,700. When Jischke
retires as Purdue's president
in June of next year, he will
receive a $400,000 retire-
ment bonus.
In comparison, Coleman's
salary increased by 3 percent
- lower than the national
average for public university
presidents. Public university
presidents earned on average
4.1 percent more than they did
last year.
Although Coleman has
been one of the highest-earn-
ing presidents nationwide
since coming to the Univer-
sity in 2002, her salary has
remained fairly static.
In her first two years as
president, Coleman earned

Inside a series of

Daily StaffReporter
Film canisters and spare
video equipment sat in a hall-
way of the University Hospi-
tal last month next to carts
of freshly polished-off meal
trays. A small film crew tried
to blend into the hospital's
Thursday morning routine.
Director Peter Lang and a
small production crew were
spending four days filming in
the hospital and around Ann
Arbor. They have since used
the footage for two new TV

commercials to solicit dona-
tions to the Health System's
$500-million portion of the
Michigan Difference, which
aims to raise $2.5 billion.
The new ads resemble the
Health System's TV spot that
aired first last year. They are
set to a string arrangement of
"The Victors."
The academic sector has
echoed the same aesthetic in
its promotions.

announcement - which also
uses the fight song and shows

Crossing Borders volunteer
Isabelle Carbonell and stem-
cell scientist Sean Morrison -

Clutching a football
covered with the names of
cancer patients, LSA soph-
omore Andrew Seiden set
out from Ann Arbor early
Friday morning on the first
leg of a 187-mile multi-mar-
athon to Columbus.
He arrived at Ohio
Stadium just before the
Michigan-Ohio State game
Saturday.
The occasion for the
trek was the fourth annual
Pike Charity Football Run,
organized by the brothers
of the campus chapter of
Pi' Kappa Alpha. Proceeds
go toward the Coach Carr

Cancer Fund.
Although it received
many of the donations
before the run, the frater-
nity will collect donations
until the end of the semes-
ter. As of Sunday night, it
had raised $43,333. The
goal is to eventually reach
$50,000.
The run, which lasts
about 27 hours, includes
about 110 fraternity broth-
ers, who run various dis-
tances in relay fashion,
passing off a football on the
way.
Seiden said the knowl-
edge that the run benefited
cancer victims motivated
him.
"I was quite frequently
looking down at the ball
in my hands, and I was
using that as inspiration
to keep running," he said.
