Excitement was on the agenda
during the University's Board of
Regents monthly meeting yes-
terday, when four Olympic ice
dancers and University students

paid a visit to receive a resolution

couver last month, and Emily
Samuelson and Evan Bates, who
finished in 11th place at the winter
games, were honored with acom-
mendation from the regents.

SPRING COMMENCEMENT
Valerie Jarrett to speak
at Law School graduation

Senior Obama
advisor will come to
campus a week
after Pres. Obama
By JOSEPH LICHTERMAN
Daily StaffReporter
Senior White House Advisor
and University Law School alum
Valerie Jarrett will deliver this
spring's Law School commence-
0 ment address.
The ceremony will be held at 2
p.m. on May 8 at Hill Auditorium,
one week after President Barack
Obama is slated to deliver the Uni-

versity's spring commencement
address.
Jarrett is the head of four
departments in the White House,
chair of the White House Council
on Women and Girls and heads the
White House's business outreach
program.
She said in a press release that
she is honored to be speaking at the
Law School's commencement.
"I am very excited to return to
the Michigan Law campus and
congratulate this year's graduating
class," Jarrett said in the release.
"Some of the best times of my life
were spent in Ann Arbor, and this
is an incredible honor, not just as
an alumna, but as somebody who's
very familiar with how much we

need these smart, talented and
committed scholars to help us con-
front the many challenges facing
our country."
In an interview yesterday,
University President Mary Sue
Coleman said she was initially con-
cerned that Obama's trip to Ann
Arbor would prevent Jarrett from
delivering the Law School com-
mencement address.
"I just had a little worry when
we knew the president was going to
come because we put the invitation
out to Ms. Jarrett a long time ago
too for the Law School," she said.
"I was afraid that she wouldn't be
able to do that, but she is, so she is
making that commitment."

CAMPAIGNING ON CAMPUS
ACLU pushes Housing to
allow canvassing in res. halls

Organization sent
letter to University
0 President Coleman
By VANESSA NUNEZ
Daily StaffReporter
The University's chapter of the
American Civil Liberties Union

sent a letter to University Presi-
dent Mary Sue Coleman earlier
this week requesting a meeting to
discuss lifting the current ban on
political campaigning in residence
halls in advance of the midterm
elections this coming November .
Under current University Hous-
ing policy, students are prohibited
from canvassing for political can-
didates in the residence halls with-

out prior approval. As it stands, if
students are found doing so, they
can be charged with criminal tres-
passing and may be barred from
entering all residence halls. This
policy also extends to student
organizations, which face fines at
an amount determined by the Uni-
versity for the same offense.

Neumeister wants to

to mediate conflict
on their own
By SARA BOBOLTZ
For the Daily
The University's Office of Stu-
dent Conflict Resolution contin-
ued its search for a new director
yesterday with a presentation
given by Jim Neumeister, the
director of Northwestern Univer-
sity's Office of Judicial Affairs.

Neumeister is the second candi-
date for the post to visit campus
this week.
On Wednesday, OSCR held a
forum in OSCR's office in South
Quadrangle to give students the
opportunity to ask Neumeister
questions. Yesterday, Neumeister
gave a SO-minute presentation in
the Wolverine Room of the Union
for an audience of about 30 fac-
ulty members and students.
Jay Wilgus, the other candi-
date for the director position, also
gave, a presentation this week for
students and faculty. In an effort
to find a replacement for its pre-
vious director Jennifer Schrage,

who stepped down in December,
OSCR has narrowed the list of
candidates to Wilgus and Neu-
meister.
During his presentation, Neu-
meister said if hired he would
work to spread campus aware-
ness of OSCR and its services,
including training services for
residential advisors in campus
residence halls.
Neumeister added that he would
continue using the Spectrum
of Conflict Resolutions Options
model, which was developed
in 2008 by Schrage and Monita
