zation's exhibits because there
are fewer children present.
While some students expressed
concern regarding the graphic
nature of the exhibit's photos,
Hardwick said the shock value of
the photos is justified.
"The only reason our display
is so graphic is because abortion
is so graphic," Hardwick said.
"If you don't like these pictures,
then maybe you shouldn't like
LSA junior Carmen Allen,
president of Students for Life,
said the organization asked the
Genocide Awareness Project to
come to campus because many
students here aren't concerned
"I think that the University of
Michigan is the subject of a lot of
apathy on campus that we have
labeled tolerance," Allen said.
"I think that abortion is an issue
that has really fallen under that
apathy. The only thing that can
really shake up this campus is to
see what's going on through the
Allen said she didn't think
the pictures are unnecessarily
"This is exactly what's hap-
pening," she said. "I think that
we have the right to our consti-
tutional freedom of speech ... It's
important for people to be aware
of what's going on."
LSA junior Anna Paone, vice
president of Students for Life,
said she was initially concerned
about the graphic nature of the
photos that the organization
brought to campus.
"At first I didn't agree," Paone
said. "At first I thought this was
too bold, and I thought it would
offend too many people to be
But she said she has since
decided that the images are
necessary to challenge people's
opinions about abortion.
"I think that sometimes you
need to go bold, and you need to
have images," Paone said.
She added that she thinks the
exhibit makes an accurate com-
parison of abortion to genocide.
"Our fundamental argument
is that the fetus is a human,"
Paone said. "If the fetus is a
human, it is an accurate com-
Students for Life contact-
ed the Center for Bio-Ethical
Reform and brought its members
to campus for a similar event in
2000, according to Paone. The
campus group also had a booth
on the Diag yesterday dispens-
ing information for women who
may be considering abortion and
set up a "Free Speech" board on
which students could write their
opinions about various issues.
LSA senior Rachel Fentin, co-
president of Students for Choice,
said the campus organization
tried to prevent the Genocide
Awareness Project from coming
to the University.
"We had concern for the stu-
dents on campus who are going
to be walking through that have
experienced abortion, who have
family members that have had
abortions or (had) family mem-
bers that were in the Holocaust,"
Fentin said in an interview on
She added that students rep-
resenting Students for Choice
gathered the Diag to oppose the
"It's their freedom of speech,
so we're exercising our right to
free speech and reminding peo-
ple that there is an alternative
narrative to this," said Fentin,
who added that the Genocide
Awareness Project was using
LSA freshman Annie Bauer-
Levey said the photos repulsed
her and are too graphic for stu-
dents walking through the Diag.
"I think it's ridiculous that
they're comparing abortion to
genocide," Bauer-Levey said.
Engineering freshman Reed
Lillie described the exhibit as
"shocking" but said he under-
stands the group's use of the

they're trying to make that abor-

and her doctorate in biochemistry
from the University of North Car-
olina. For 19 years, Coleman was a
member of the biochemistry fac-
ulty at the University ofKentucky.
The environment of academia
has changed to better foster
innovation and guard individual
rights to intellectual property
since Coleman received her Ph.D.
in 1969, she said. The biggest
change, Coleman said, has been
the emphasis on entrepreneur-
ship in the last five years.
"I do think that (the Univer-
sity) is in many ways at the fore-
front with many institutions of
putting incentives in place, cre-
ating opportunities, doing things
that are really going to spur this
kind of activity," Coleman said.
Elizabeth Barry, managing
director of the Life Sciences Insti-
tute, said she and David Canter,
executive director of the North
Campus Research Complex,
thought for14n-an as aguestlec-
turer while planning the course,
which is cross-listed in the Medi-
cal School, College of Engineer-
ing, Ross School of Business and
Ford School of Public Policy.
Coleman's oratory skills and her
background in science made her
an obvious choice, Barry said.
"We were trying to think of
who was someone who really was
at the intersection of a lot of the
kinds of themes we talked about
in this class," Barry said.
Coleman currently serves as
co-chair of the National Advisory
Council on Innovation and Entre-
preneurship and is a member of
the board for the pharmaceutical
company Johnson & Johnson.
In her lecture, Coleman said
being on the board of Johnson &
Johnson has been an "interest-
ing experience." She said she has
learned about the difficulties
companies face from the Food
and Drug Administration and
health care reform, among other
"Groups get in the way," Cole-
man said. "Everybody's trying to
do the right thing."
Coleman said her experience
givesher aunique license to speak
at cross-disciplinary lectures like
this one, but noted that science
moves at a pace that is difficult to
keep up with.
"I'd have to go back to grad
school to be a scientist today,"
Engineering graduate student
Zubair Ahsan asked Coleman
how the University is bringing
research into industry. Coleman
answered that it is hard to pre-
dict what lines of research will be
viable in industry.
"Some of the biggest discover-
ies that have ever been made came
completely serendipitously," Cole-
However, Coleman said the
University uses Tech Transfer -
an office that helps put technolo-
gy developed at the University on
the market - to accelerate busi-
ness endeavors and protect the
intellectual property of students
and faculty. In fiscal year 2011, an
all-time high of 101 technologies
that went through Tech Trans-
fer were licensed and optioned,
according to a press release issued
"We have a support system
within the University that is a lot
more robust even than it was five
years ago," Coleman said.
Coleman said she understands
the challenges faculty and stu-
dents face when trying to find
funding for and continue their
research at the University.
"Ninety-five percent of the
time, you're depressed because
your experiment didn't work out
like you think it should, and so
it's failure, failure, failure," Cole-
man said, adding that the other
five percent of the time gives
researchers the motivation to
In an interview after the lec-
ture, Ahsan said he was satisfied
with Coleman's responses and is
looking forward to hearing more
specifics in her State of the Uni-
versity address tomorrow. He
added that multi-disciplinary
courses like The Business of Biol-
ogy are valuable because they
allow students to hear from influ-
ential people like Coleman each
"(Barry and Canter) have done
a good job in selecting the speak-
ers with the appropriate back-
grounds that hit every aspect of
the business of biology," Ahsan
said. "Whether it be regulatory,
entrepreneurial, university, etc."

SACUA members expressed
mixed views on the proposed
Finn Larsen, an associate
professor of physics and associ-
ate chair of the Department of
Physics, questioned whether
SACUA should be addressing the
issue since the University oper-
ates according to bylaws passed
by the regents. The University
is one of several public institu-
tions in the state that are exempt
from certain state laws since
they have their own governing
"Is this any of their business
to tell us what to do?" Larsen
said. "And of course, if it's not,
then it might not be our business
to tell them what to do outside
SACUA Chair Kate Barald, a
professor in the Medical School
and College of Engineering, said
the University's stance on the
proposed bill would have con-
sequences for many institutions.
"I think we're perfectly justi-
fied in dealing with this issue,"
Barald said. "I think there's a
bigger issue here. I think this
has a wider and bigger context in
that yes, we should certainly be
concerned aboutthe University's
context, but I personally think it
has a broader implication."
In an interview after the
meeting, SACUA Vice Chair
Kimberlee Kearfott, a profes-
sor in the College of Engineer-
ing and Medical School, said

REZONING OF MEDICAL
In an 8-3 vote, the Ann Arbor-
Sqty touncil rejected a request
last night to rezone a property -
that houses a medical marijuana
dispensary - on South State
Street from an office district to a
local business district so that the
dispensary can legally operate
as a business.
Attorney Dennis Hayes, who
spoke during the public com-
mentary, said Treecity Health
Collective - located at 1712
South State St. - has been work-
ing diligently to get the property
rezoned. He expressed his dis-
satisfaction with the city and
commented on the difficulty of
establishing medical marijuana
dispensaries in the city.
"One of the problems we've

Still, it will take some time
before Acacia becomes a fully
recognized fraternity chapter
at the University. Acacia needs
to recruit at least 10 pledges
this year to continue to become
an official chapter, but Haddad
hopes the fraternity will attract
about 30 new pledges.
Acacia is currently consid-
ered an expansion chapter. It
takes new chapters between
two to four years to become full
members of the IFC, according
to LSA junior Sean Jackson,
IFC vice president of public
Each year, the IFC invites
national fraternities that don't
have chapters at the University
if fringe benefits were taken
away from University faculty
in domestic partnerships, many
domestic partners and their
children would be negatively
affected and the University
would no longer attract the best
"We could lose faculty who
would go elsewhere because
their benefits for their partners
would be compromised, and we
wouldn't be able to maintain a
recruiting advantage," Kearfott
said. "To be the Leaders and the
Best, we need the leaders and
the best. We need the best ben-
efits for everybody. It's only fair."
Engineering and Physics Prof.
Rachel Goldman suggested an
amendment to a statement in the
resolution she felt was too defen-
sive. It said the University's
current policy is effective and
described the negative effects
that taking away fringe benefits
would have for faculty.
SaraAhbel-Rappe, a professor
of Greek and Latin and a guest
speaker at the meeting, said the
state Senate will vote on the
bill by the end of the month and
thinks the Republican majority
will pass the bill successfully.
She said she hopes SACUAs pro-
posed resolution will allow fac-
ulty members to give their input.
"The bill is just moving
through the legislature," Ahbel-
Rappe said. "It's moving with-
out any opposition, and it's also
moving without any public con-
versation. So the idea would be
to give faculty a voice."
Kearfott said a revised reso-
lution will likely be drawn up at
an upcoming Senate Assembly
meeting, where faculty members
will further discuss the issue.
been having on a larger scale

medical marijuana collectives,"
City Council member Sandi
Smith (D-Ward 1), who voted for
the rezoning, said she felt con-
flicted about rezoning the area
since there are businesses and
retail spaces in the surrounding
area and pointed out the growth
of aproduce stat~6r nerby.
"I do see that here is an oppor-
tunity with changing conditions
in that area," Smith said.
City Planning Manager
Wendy Rampson said the
request - which the council
postponed from its Sept. 19
meeting - did not have enough
justification to be accepted due
to the presence of office spaces
in the area.
"In this particular situa-
tion ... we saw that it was such a
small piece of land surrounded
by other uses - office uses and
industrial across the street -
that to take one piece out of con-
text in that area did not make
sense," Rampson said.

"The (fraternity) has to put
together a presentation, and the
IFC reviews it before making a
decision," Jackson said.
Acacia aims to hinge its
reputation around service and
education, Psyk and Haddad
said. They added that the bond
Acacia brothers have with one
another goes beyond their four
years together on campus.
Haddad said Acacia offers a
membership development pro-
gram that facilitates connec-
tions with alumni and other
fraternity members across the
country. Acacia brothers are
paired up with alumni men-
tors who help them prepare for
employment, financial planning
and other aspects of life after
"It opens up the channel of
communication and mentor-
ing," Haddad said.
