Rankings change a source of worry

National Research
Council overhauling
methodology of
long-awaited report
By ESHWAR
THIRUNAVUKKARASU
DailyStaffReporter
The success of university
researchers is about to be quanti-

fied, and that fact has officials at
colleges across the country sweat-
ing.
Considered by many as the pre-
eminent system for assessing doc-
torate programs, the United States
National Research Council report
ranks 222 institutions nationwide
over 61 different doctoral fields.
The ratings attract a lot of
attention because they come out
about once every 10 years. But this
forthcoming report is already four
years late, as the last edition came

out in 1995. Though the release of
this version is expected in the very
near future, nobody knows exactly
when that publication date will be.
The NRC, which recently
released its ranking methodology,
will be using survey data of par-
ticipating universities from the
2005-2006 academic year. Applied
to individual doctorate programs,
the rankings rely on a wide range
of criteria, which include the num-
ber of publications and grants pro-
duced by faculty, demographics

like minority composition and cur-
rent rankings.
Averaging all departmental
scores, the University of Michigan
scored third overall on the NRC's
previous list of rankings in 1995,
behind the University of Califor-
nia, Berkley and first-ranked Stan-
ford University.
In an interview this week, for-
mer University President James
Duderstadt, who is also a professor
of science and engineering, said

Annual homecoming tailgate
set to go green this weekend

CAMPUS CRIME
Diag incident ends in pepper spray

All trash from event
to be recycled, reused
or composted
By OLIVIA CARRINO
For the Daily
"Go Blue, Live Green" may
become a reality on campus this
weekend when the University's
first zero waste tailgate takes place
tomorrow at the 33rd Annual Go
Blue Homecoming Tailgate at Oost-

erbaan Fieldhouse.
Every year the Go Blue Tailgate
welcomes 3,000 alumni, students
and friends to enjoy food, cama-
raderie and entertainment. This
year, the event is taking the whole
production one step further. Zero
waste means all materials at the
tailgate will be reused, recycled or
composted. This eliminates the
need to send garbage to landfills.
The Alumni Association in
partnership with the Student Sus-
tainability Initiative and the Uni-
versity's Department of Refuse and

Recycling is organizing the event.
SSI is an on-campus group of lead-
ers in government groups, envi-
ronmental groups and individuals
who want to make the University of
Michigan a leader in sustainability.
At the tailgate, all plates will be
made from bamboo and all utensils
will be made from corn syrup. Both
are entirely compostable, as are the
cups, napkins and trash liners that
will be used. All compostable mate-
rials will be transported to a local
composting farm.

After one man
resists arrests,
police take action
By KYLE SWANSON
Daily News Editor
Passers-by stood and watched
as University Police confronted
two men near the Diag yesterday
in an incident that ended when one
of the men was subdued with pep-
per spray.
Department of Public Safety
spokeswoman Diane Brown said
University Police were called to
the scene after reports that the two

men were demanding money from
students walkingin the area.
"We received a report of two
people on the Diag, or in the Diag
area, who were aggressively pan-
handling," Brown said, adding that
the panhandling was not being
carried out in a way that would be
considered robbery.
Once University Police arrived,
the two men were read trespassing
rights and were asked to leave Uni-
versity property, Brown said.
Brown said that while one of the
subjects readily cooperated with
officers and was escorted from
campus peacefully, the other sub-
ject - a 49-year-old man - resist-
ed arrest.

"We had reports of him aggres-
sively panhandling and so we were
escorting him off campus property
when he resisted police instruc-
tions and then ultimately resisted
the police officer when he was
told he was going to be arrested,"
Brown said.
While resisting arrest, the
subject - who Brown said was
inebriated - began to fight with
University Police. In response,
police officers used pepper spray
to subdue the man. Brown said he
was then taken into custody and to
the University Hospital because he
was complaining of physical dis-
comfort.

Department of Biomedical Engi-
neering, the School of Kinesiology
and Department of Orthopaedic
Surgery.
In a press release issued ear-
lier this week, Sullivan said she
was very happy with Zernicke's
appointment and looked forward
to working with him.
"President Coleman and I are
extremely pleased that Dr. Zer-

nicke is assuming the leadership
of the School of Kinesiology at this
time of dramatic change within
the study of human movement,"
Sullivan said.
Zernicke's appointment comes
after two rounds of interviews that
took place after Beverly Ulrich, the
former dean of the School of Kine-
siology, stepped down in 2008.
In response to the selection,
Ulrich wrote in a statement that
she is very happy with Zernicke's
appointment.
"He combines strong and
