PRESIEN COMPENSAION
-In '06'07, Coleman 6th in pay

'U' president was
highest-paid public
university chief in '05
By JACOB SMILOVITZ
Daily StaffReporter
Although she came into office
in 2002 as the highest paid leader
of any public university in the
nation, University President Mary
Sue Coleman has seen her rank
among the highest-compensated

public university presidents drop
to sixth, according to a survey pub-
lished yesterday by the Chronicle
of Higher Education.
On top of her compensation
of $743,151 from the University,
Coleman also gets paid for her
membership on both the Johnson
& Johnson and Meredith Corpora-
tionboards. The Chronicle listsher
minimum annual pay for member-
ship on those boards as $331,226.
Her compensation from the
University puts her behind the
presidents of Purdue University,
the University of Delaware, Ohio

State University, the University
of Virginia and the University of
Washington. Purdue President
Martin Jischke topped the list
with an annual total compensa-
tion of $880,950 for the 2006-2007
school year.
Coleman ranked fourth on
the list of highest paid leaders of
public universities who were not
leaving their respective universi-
ties. Both Jischke and Ohio State
President Karen Holbrook ranked
ahead of Coleman and are retiring
this year.

REPORT ON INTERNATIONAL EDUCATIO
More int'l
students
study in U. S.

Number of'U'
students studying
abroad also rises
By DANIEL STRAUSS
Daily Staff Reporter
The number of international
students studying in the United
States increased for the first time
since the year after the Sept. 11
terrorist attacks duringthe 2006-
2007 academic year, according to
a report released yesterday.
With 5,429 foreign students
studying here, the University of
Michigan was the sixth-most
popular school for international
students in the country.
The report, issued by the Insti-
tute for International Education,
cited a 10.2 percent increase
in the number of student visas
issued last year compared with
the previous year.
According to John Greisberger,
director of the University's Inter-
national Center, which works
with international students com-
ing to the University and U.S.
residents studying abroad, the
increases are due to the greater
efficiency by the government and
the attractiveness of studying at a
university with a strong reputa-
tion.
"This latest IE report is
showing that we're basically
back where we were in 2001 and
2002," Greisberger said. "Over

the past five years, it seems to
have improved in terms of the
processing of visas, where after
9/11 there was a significant slow
down and that was taken on part
of the State Department which
chose to interview every entering
visa."
Greisberger said international
students choose the University of
Michigan for its reputation as a
major research university and its
reasonable tuition compared to
other prestigious schools.
He said that even though
international undergraduate and
graduate students are charged
out-of-state tuition like anyone
outside of Michigan, the Univer-
sity's cost compared to those of
some reputable private universi-
ties makes it more desirable.
"The cost makes a big differ-
ence, and a school like Michigan
has a lot of support for gradu-
ate students to do research and
teach," Greisberger said. "If
you're an undergraduate, I think
you look at the price tag at Michi-
gan versus a private institution
and you look at the rankings and
you say, 'Yeah it's in Michigan,
but it's going to cost me less."'
That is exactly what LSA soph-
omore ErinaUozumi said she was
thinking about while choosing
schools. Uozumi attended school
in El Salvador and applied to a
number of private universities
in the United States, hoping to
attend a school with strong music

. LaDuke calls for renewed
fight for human rights

Former Green VP
candidate wants
better treatment of
Native Americans
By LISA HAIDOSTIAN
Daily StaffReporter
Ojibwe activist and former
Ralph Nader running mate Winona
LaDuke urged University students
and Ann Arbor community mem-
bers last night not to get compla-
cent in the fight for human rights.
LaDuke spoke at the Trot-
ter Multicultural Center about
the recent passage of the United
Nations Declaration on the Eights
ofIndigenous Peoples. Thedeclara-
lion, which passed on Sept. 13, was
a symbolic message to affirm rights
for indigenous groups around the
world.
The event was hosted by the
Office of Multi-Ethnic Student

Affairs in recognition of National
American Indian Heritage Month.
LaDuke said Native Ameri-
can people have been trivialized
by U.S. culture, citing the use of
Native American mascots and the
popularity of Pocahontas Hallow-
een costumes.
"We do not exist as full human
beings," she said. "We exist as cari-
catures."
She also referenced the senior
honor society formerly known as
Michigamua and its appropriation
of Native American culture in its
rituals. Earlier this year, the group
changed its name to the order of
Angell and registered as a Uni-
versity student group. The group
agreed to stop using Native Ameri-
can artifacts in its rituals in 1989.
LaDuke said that indigenous
people are oppressed in the United
States because American society is
based on conquest, not survival
