against Proposal 2, said Maricruz
Lopez, an LSA sophomore and co-
chair of the University's BAMN
chapter.
TENURE
From page lA
rity as their tenured counterparts.
Often this lack of security leads to
less of a willingness to take risks in
the classroom, Robinson said. In con-
trast, the security of a tenured posi-
tion gives professors the opportunity
to discuss controversial issues and
opinions in their classes, he said.
SACUA Chair Charles Smith
said the University hires non-ten-
ure-track faculty members because
they earn significantly less than
tenured employees.
There are advantages in a non-ten-
ured position, though, said Ian Rob-
inson, a lecturer in the Residential
College. It allows lecturers to focus on
teaching without the pressure to pub-
lish research, papers or books,he said.
Before the Lecturers' Employee
Organization walked out in protest
in April 2004, lecturers were subject

"Our response is that noth-
ing changes, and we'll continue
fighting," Lopez said. "Even if
the court rejected it this time,
eventually we'll end up at the
Supreme Court fighting Proposal
2."
to dismissal at the end of a term with-
out explanation. Robinson said their
futures were often determined by the
comments on student evaluations.
Student evaluations are no longer
the primary factor in decisions about
lecture appointments and non-ten-
ure track faculty now have more job
security, allowing them more aca-
demic freedom, Robinson said.
Butinthe past fouryears the num-
ber of tenure-track faculty at the Uni-
versity has been on the rise, according
to data providedby the University.
In 2003, there were 2,544 ten-
ure-track professors. In 2006,
there were 2,694.
With non-tenured faculty poised
to outnumber tenured faculty within
several years, some of the stigma
could be removed from non-tenured
positions. Currently, the discrepancy
in pay and job security between ten-
ured and non-tenured faculty often
forces non-tenured faculty into a
second-class status, Robinson said.

COMMITTEE
From page lA
sity administration on what actions
to take.
The study group's members
include MSA representatives Art
Reyes, Eric Li and Tony Saunders,
MSA President Nicole Stallings,
former Student Conservative Party
MSA vice presidential candidate
Tommi Turner; and Michigan
Review Managing Editor Adam
Paul.
The new group is similar to the
University's Diversity Blueprints
Task Force, which is composed
of faculty, staff, alumni and stu-
dents. University President Mary
Sue Coleman established Diver-
sity Blueprints following Proposal
2's passage in November. The
University's task force will make
recommendations to Coleman in
February on how to sustain and
improve diversity on campus.
Lester Monts, senior vice provost
for academic affairs and Diversity
Blueprints co-chair, said he sup-
ports the student-led group, despite
it having similar goals to Diversity
Blueprints.
"I don't believe any campusgroup
should claim sole ownership of the

diversity debate," he said in an e-
mail interview. "I will observe with
great interest the work of this bipar-
tisan group. I congratulate MSA and
LSA-SG for their sponsorship."
Baker said two factors separate
his group from Diversity Blue-
prints: it is composed entirely of
students and it is more ideologi-
cally balanced.
"The University has taken a
stance," he said. "Because we have
a campus community who agree
with the University and some who
don't, it's importantboth sides have
a voice in how to proceed."
Yahkind, who also acts as an
unofficial spokesman for the senior
honor society formerly known
as Michigamua, said he respects
Diversity Blueprints but wanted
to start the group to provide an
entirely student perspective.
Despite the differing viewpoints
of its members, Baker said the study
group will create recommendations
for the University.
"I think the group we put togeth-
er is looking toward a compromise,"
he said. "I expect that we will be
able to make recommendations to
garner support from all the partici-
pants."
Yahkind said diversity is impor-

tant to all members of the study
group and stressed the importance
of its bipartisanship.
"Having these conversations can
have some unique results we don't
often see, instead of just yelling at
each other in the Diag," he said.
The group's recommendations
may come as early as April, but if
necessary, Baker said the group
may continue its work into the fall
semester.
On Wednesday night, the group
held its first public meeting. Mem-
bers discussed tentative areas to
focus on such as campus climate,
the University's role in K-12 educa-
tion, recruitment and institutional
issues like housing and financial
aid. Members also discussed which
University administrators to meet
with and future public meeting
topics.
There was no audience at the
meeting. Baker said because it was
the first meeting, getting people
together was more of a priority
than publicity. Although member-
ship is limited to the 10 student
leaders chosen by Baker, he plans to
have both private and public meet-
ings to allow for campus input. He
said the group will hold a student
forum soon to introduce itself to

GREENBERG
From page lA
al court system has made decisions
that have led toward a return to
segregation, influenced by cultural
shifts. As an example, he cited the
1974 Supreme Court case Milliken
v. Bradley, in which the court ruled
that school systems couldn't inte-
grate schools by busing students
across district lines.
He said that because the right to
equality is moderated by the distri-
bution of resources in society, legal
rights cannot be expanded without
societal support.
For example, making health
care a right rather than a privilege
would require a sizable shift in the
way resources are allocated, he
said.
A member of the audience
asked Greenberg how he would
justify using public resources to
improve the status of society's
have-nots.
"You tell them that they have an
interest in a stable and prosperous
society," Greenberg responded. "If
a large part of the population is
subjugated, disenfranchised and
not fully productive, it's not going
to be a successful society."

For Monday, Jan. 22, 2007
ARIES
(March 21 to April 19)
Surprise opportunities connected with
travel, publishing or education are likely
at this time in your life. However, inter-
ruptions in the same areas are also likely.
(Could go either way.)
TAURUS
(April 20 to May 20)
Some of you will have a piece of luck
that is like a bolt out of the blue.
Unexpected inheritances, gifts or favors
could come your way today or this
month.
GEMINI
(May 21 to June 20)
Relations with partners and close
friends are definitely a source of surprise
for you now. Some of you want to break
free. Others are delighted at new inti-
macy.
CANCER
(June 21 to July 22)
Von mightl feel restless with your job.
All kinds of opportunities seem to be op
in the air. It's a hard call for you now to
know exactly what to do.
LEO
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
Romance is a bit of crapshoot right
now. In fact, your luck is all over the
place. Some of you could win some-
thing; some of you could lose. Parents
should be vigilant about children.
VIRGO
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Matters connected with home and
family are undergoing changes. You
want to break free of any kind of restric-
tions. Don't be too eager for change for
change's sake, however.
LIBRA
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
This is a bumpy, jumpy day. Take
extra precautions when driving or walk-
ing. You might also want to be more
careful about what pops out of your

mouth. You feel quite impetuous and
rash today.
SCORPIO
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Unusual planetary aspects can affect
your money scene today. You could win
money; you could make a bundle; you
could lose some.
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22to Dec. 21)
Your freedom is very important to you
at this time. This could create problems
in relationships. You don't want anyone
telling you what to do!
CAPRICORN
(Dee. 2210toua. 10)
Opportunities exist all around you
today, but it's difficult to say what might
happen. If a window of opportunity does
open, act quickly, because it will be
brief!
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Friends are unpredictable today.
Someone might surprise you in a pleas-
ant way or caleb you off-guard. You
want to be your own person today.
PISCES
(Feb. 191to March 20)
You're not in the mood to take orders
from authority figures today. That's for
certain. Nevertheless, someone might
offer you a juicy opportunity. If so, act
quickly!
YOU BORN TODAY You're very
intense about whatever you do. You
don't take halfway measures. You
express your emotions quite freely and
dramatically, although some of you like
to appear more conservative in public.
You pay great attention to detail.
Whatever you do is creative and origi-
nal. A major change might take place
this year, perhaps as significant as in
1998.
