higher environmental benchmarks.
He argued in favor of LEED certifi-
cation at last month's regent's meet-

administrators have been recep-
tive, but haven't yet agreed to fol-
low LEED standards.
Diane Brown, spokeswoman for
the University's facilities and oper-
ations, said the University doesn't
need the designation to be environ-
mentally friendly. She said LEED
certification provides "significant
benefits," but also great costs.
"The University is more inter-
ested in implementing the appro-
priate elements to achieve energy
efficiency and being more envi-
ronmentally friendly than we are
at putting money to an outside
organization so we can get a label,"
Brown said.
Shahinian said cost shouldn't
deter the University from seeking
LEED certification.
"I mean, the cost is minimal," he
According to a U.S. General
Services Administration report

commissioned to estimate costs
for developing green facilities
based on the LEED ratings sys-
tem, LEED certification would
cost about $.50 per square foot of
a new building. At that cost per
square foot, the project would
cost about $60,000.
"It doesn't seem like a big deal
for us, especially for the benefits it
gives," Shahinian said.
The new Ross School of Busi-
ness building and C.S. Mott Chil-
dren's Hospital are both expected
to be LEED-certified after student
groups pushed the Business School
and University Health System.
The Dana Building, home of the
School of Natural Resources and
the Environment, also underwent
extensive renovations to gain cer-
tification. The building received
gold certification from LEED in
Shahinian said the same process
could be followed in this case with
the Law School.
"You can build a building that
you call green," said Shahinian.
"You can build a building that you
say meets LEED standards. And
then, the next step is, you can build
a building and certify it to meet
LEED standards. We're asking
them to go to that last step."

LSA freshman Jourdan Sims,
a Southfield resident, said she
hasn't mailed in her voter reg-
istration form yet. She said she
was excited to hear that Clinton
won in New Hampshire, but she
hasn't made up her mind who to
vote for yet.
LSA senior Sara Mitchel said
she supports Romney but that
she isn't paying attention to
Michigan's primary election.
Mitchel, a registered voter in Illi-
nois, said she doesn't plan to vote
in the primaries.
"I haven't really been paying
attention to what's going on, so
how could I vote?" she said. "But
I will vote for the actual election
in Chicago."

ing a resource to help employees
cope with mental health issues
benefits the University because it
could lower health care costs, said
Psychiatry Prof. Ken Silk, a co-
chair of the initiative's advisory
committee. Silk said that the web-
site could help diagnose a seri-
ous health risk early on, possibly
reducing treatment costs for both
the University and its employees.
"In the long run, one of the big-
gest concerns that's facing major
corporations, including univer-
sities, is the rising cost of health
care," Silk said. "There's evidence
to show that if you can get employ-
ees to be more interested in their
health, then you can lower health
care costs."
Palma-Davis agreed, saying
one of the program's major goals
is to save the University money.
Mental health-related issues
account for 20 percent of the
University's long-term disability
claims. Antidepressants were the
top pharmaceutical cost at the
University last year.
The program was also designed
to erase the stigma tied to men-
tal health issues by providing a
resource to explain often mis-
understood illnesses to faculty
Waldecker said faculty mem-
bers have told him that they don't

know where to find the resources
to address their mental health
issues. He said he hopes Under-
standing U will fix that.
Butsome faculty said they don't
know if it will work.
Fritz Swanson, a lecturer in the
English department, said Under-
standing U represents a typical
University response to a problem -
creating a large agency to deal with
ment to address it individually.
"It sounds like an expensive
way to not deal with the problem,"
Swanson said.
Nicholas Theisen, a graduate
student instructor in comparative
literature, agreed.
"When someone has genuine
systematic problems, providing a
resource is not enough," he said.
Silk said one of the main advan-
tages of an online resource, though,
is the anonymity, because screen-
ings on the site are confidential.
"People can explore what
they're feeling without having to
go through the barrier of having
to talk to someone," Silk said.
Silk said that because mental
health issues are so widespread,
it's necessary to make the pro-
gram open to everyone.
"What the website is trying to
say is that everybody has stress
and that stress is a normal part of
life," he said. "If you have stress
and it's keeping you from doing
your best, there are places you
can go."

First to
land (AP) - Sir Edmund Hill-
ary, the unassuming beekeeper
who conquered Mount Everest
to win renown as one of the 20th
century's greatest adventurers,
died today. He was 88.
The gangling New Zealander
devoted much of his life to aiding
the mountain people of Nepal
and took his fame in stride, pre-
ferring to be called Ed and con-
sidering himself an "ordinary
person with ordinary qualities."
Hillary died atAuckland Hospi-
tal about 9 am. today from aheart
attack, said a statement from the
Auckland District Health Board.
His life was marked by grand
achievements, high adventure,
discovery, excitement - but he
was especially pround of his
decades-long campaign to set
up schools and health clinics in
Nepal, the homeland of Tenz-
ing Norgay, the mountain guide
with whom he stood arm in arm
on the 29,035-foot summit of
Everest on May 29,1953.
