relations between the United
States and Israel, and was signed
by 1,019 students as of 7 p.m. last
Since February, Tessler has
been working with a small task
force to consider changes to the
policy. In an interview late last
month, Hanlon said the task force
has already gathered information
about the study abroad practices
at other Universities. University
officials' evaluation of the study
abroad policy is scheduled to be
completed in the next month or
two, at which time a report will
be released, Hanlon said.
"We're looking at what other
places do to see if we want to
reconsider our process and our
policy here," Hanlon said.
Sometimes the travel warnings
aren't a good enough reason to
ban studying abroad in an entire
country since only parts of the
country may be dangerous while
other areas maybe safe enough to
host students, Hanlon said.
"The State Department adviso-
ry is kind of a blunt instrument,"
he said. "Either the country is
on the advisory or it's not on the
LSA sophomore Caroline Can-
ning, author of the WolvPAC
petition, said the group created
the petition to show support for
a program in Israel despite the
travel warning to the country.
Canning said about 40 students
study abroad in Israel each win-
ter semester through programs
not affiliated with the University.
"We think this should be a pri-
ority because the University hasa
global reach and should have this
partnership," she said.
The group expected some
negative feedback, Canning said,
because of the controversy sur-
rounding Israel, but so far the
petition has garnered support
from people on and beyond cam-
"We really have only received
positive reactions," she said.
"We've gotten c-mails from
alumni stating their support for
this program and also from stu-
dents who are really happy that
this might be a possibility for
Canning added that without
a University program, some stu-
dents she's spoken to can't pursue
a semester in Israel for various
Though Hanlon said a top
priority of the University is to
increase the opportunities for
students to study abroad, he
acknowledged the risk factor for
the University sponsoring pro-
grams in countries experiencing
turmoil. Hanlon cited students
studying abroad in Egypt who
recently had to be evacuated
from their program when condi-
tions became dangerous, adding
that changing the policy would
involve factoring in hazards like
"There's a risk management
piece to this, which doesn't mean
we won't do it," Hanlon said. "We
think there's a lot of value to it."

times. None of the students were
hit by the pellets, the report stat-
ed. The suspect is thought to be
a 21- to 24-year-old white male
with dirty blond hair down to his
shoulders, medium in build and
having a "scruffy face," according
to the report.
Each incident took place
between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m.,
according to the report. Two sim-
ilar incidents occurred on Janu-
ary 29 within 10 minutes of each
other - one at South State Street
and South University Avenue, the
other at South Forest Avenue near
Willard Street. The victim of the
first incident reported that a BB
gun was being fired, while the lat-
ter victims described the objects
as "small projectiles" - in both
cases coming from silver mini-
vans, according to the report.
Brown said it is still unknown
whether it was the same van
involved in both incidents.
The next incident occurred on
February 27 at South State Street
near the Michigan Union as two
people crossed the street to board
an Ann Arbor Transit Authority
bus, Brown said. The individu-
als reported within the hour that
they were struck by BB gun pel-
lets coming from a blue, four-
door car driving by, but gave no
further description of the vehicle,
according to the report. It is still
unknown whether this incident
was related to the January inci-
dents, Brown said.
As of March 16, DPS has been
offering a $500 reward for infor-
mation about the incidents.
Despite the reward, Brown said
there have not been any leads
provided to the department on
view that the drive-by incidents
make it difficult to locate sus-
pects since they occur so quickly.
Additionally, she explained that
DPS faces challenges identifying
perpetrators when victims wait
an extended period of time before
notifying authorities. The victim
ofthe April 10 incident didn't con-
tact DPS until 19 hours after the
drive-by occurred, according to
the DPS report.
"This kind of incident is
so unexpected ... that people
aren't retaining lots of details
that could be helpful to police,"
Brown wrote. "Also, the vic-
tims in two of the incidents
delayed telling the police, mak-
ing it almost impossible to find
a matching vehicle still in the
In addition to acting as an
incentive for people to report
information to DPS, the reward
is intended to stress the danger of
the weapons on campus, Brown
"Weapons, even those consid-
ered by some to be toys, simply do
not have a positive contribution
on a college campus and truly add
to increased safety risks," Brown
Brown added that DPS has
seen an increase in reports of pos-
sible gun possessions on campus.
Many of the incidents involved
students using Airsoft guns for
target practice or using Nerf guns
in group initiations and similar
activities, she wrote. While those
using the guns know they aren't
real and aren't intended for harm,
the people around them often do
not, which incites fear, Brown
"Given the growing history of
gun violence on college campus-"
es, everyone needs to use more
caution and common sense so
as not to unintentionally cause
fear, concern or worse yet, harm
to others" Brown wrote. "Find
another way to have fun."
Last week, a man holding a
small handgun was reported
to have been in the Chemistry
Building atrium close to mid-
night on Sunday, April 3. The
employee who reported the man
to DPS told University police
that the man was pointing the
gun at her but was gone after the
employee returned to the same
spot a few minutes later after
