U' creates Depression Center

10 years ago this week
(Nov. 15, 2001): The Uni-
versity's Board of Regents
endorsed a proposal to
establish the nation's first
multidisciplinary center
for research, education and
treatment of depression.
The University of Michi-
gan Depression Center
brought together more than
100 faculty members from
different disciplines to con-
duct research on depression
and treatments.
The center was designed
to help the campus com-
munity, as well as people
outside the University, by
providing new job oppor-
tunities in research, readily

(Nov. 12, 1991): University
Police cracked down on stu-

"It is illegal to throw
anything at anybody in
the stadium, and students
are ejected for doing so,"
Department of Public Safety
Sgt. Paul Vaughan told The
Michigan Daily at the time.

Daily at the time.
However, DPS stepped
up the enforcement of the
policy by charging some
students with assault for
throwing marshmallows.

30 years ago this week
(Nov. 12, 1981): A panel of
University professors dis-
cussed ways for the United

States to avoid a nuclear
war. The professors advo-
cated for the U.S. to limit its
nuclear goals of retaliation
against attacks and discour-
aged initiation of attacks.
However, the panel
warned of the increasing
nuclear capacities of the
U.S.S.R. and argued that
developing countries should
not have access to nuclear
fuels. The best option, the
professors said, was contain-
ment of nuclear technology.
Prof. David Singer said,
"The United States has to
make an absolutely unam-
biguous decision that nucle-
ar war is not winnable."

"It's a wonderful indication
of our internationalization and
of our engagement globally -
having so many international
students here means we have a
terrific reputation for academic
excellence around the world,"
Greisberger said. "Students
come here. They want to get a
great education."
China is the largest source of
international students for the
U.S. and the University. Chinese
students currently make up 31.2
percent - or 1,747 students- of
the total number of interna-
tional students at the Univer-
sity, followed by India with 752,
South Korea with 687, Taiwan
with 287 and Canada with 244
students. , according to a Uni-
versity press release made pub-
lic yesterday.
Engineering sophomore Ken
Ling, president of the Chinese
Students and Scholars Asso-
ciation on campus - which is
primarily made up of interna-
tional students - said he chose
to come to Ann Arbor because
he knew that the University's
College of Engineering "is one
of the best in America."
Ling said he believes many
students he knows from home

study and to communicate with
others," Ling said.
The IE report also stated
that approximately 45 percent
of international students cur-
rently studying abroad in the
U.S. are women. Greisberger
said he has worked with inter-
national students since the late
'70s and remembers when inter-
national students were primar-
ily male.
"I think it speaks to how the
world in general is developing
where more women are join-
ing the work force around the
world, and they're seeking high-
er education here in the United
States," Greisberger said.
Greisberger also explained
the benefits of having a large
number of international stu-
dents at the University for stu-
dents from the U.S.
"It's great for students that
don't have the opportunity to go
abroad for an international edu-
cation because they can interact
here," he said.
Similarly, Peggy Blumenthal,
senior counselor to the presi-
dent of the IIE, said American
students benefit from sharing
classrooms with international
"They become aware of the
important global perspec-
tives on whatever topic they're
studying," Blumenthal said.
According to the IIE, the
number of international stu-
dents in the U.S. also has eco-
nomic advantages. Through

other costs of attending college,

ter's possession had recordings
he made of the three indecent
exposure incidents and the sex-
ual assault.
"As a result of the subsequent
investigation, we were able to
obtain enough evidence for all of
these other charges to be autho-
rized by the prosecutor's office,"
Brown said.
"Our investigation continues,
so there might be some more
charges," she added. "It will

While the University and
other ranked institutions have
a large influx of international
students, Blumenthal said there
is an imbalance of the number of
students the U.S. sends to study
abroad. The University is ranked
as 16th in the nation for send-
ing the most students abroad,
according to Blumenthal.
"The challenge, really, for
Michigan, and for all U.S. uni-
versities, is to be able to match
these flows of talented inter-
national students with sending
out their own students abroad
for a similar kind of experi-
ence," Blumenthal said. "Right
now, we have a huge imbal-
ance in international education

Hester's preliminary hearing
will occur on Nov. 23.
DPS was notified of the sexual
assault on Nov. 1 but withheld
the information from East Quad
residents until Nov. 10. Brown
said DPS refrained from sending
a crime alert about the incident
because they did not perceive
a continued threat. Residents
were eventually notified so they
could help identify the suspect,
but many of them were troubled
by the delay.

the strategic planning for the
civil democratic society after
the revolution," she said.
But Karman emphasized that
the path toward democracy
must come through peaceful
protests. She gave the example
of women going not with weap-
ons but with flowers to protest
in public squares. As women
participate in mostly peaceful
protests across the country, Kar-
man said she wants to see more
equality in Yemen.
"We need the nation of equal
citizenship," she said. "We need
a nation that fights corruption, a
nation, a state where law rules,
a nation where those who abuse
their authority are questioned.
We want to retrieve our nation,
and we want to become citizens
in a new world."
Karman ended her speech by
saying she's confident in the rev-
olution's achievements.
"The people have tasted it and
have made great sacrifices and
willlnot give out..." she said. "We
have blazed a path for ourselves
... and we will win."
In an interview with The
Michigan Daily after her speech,
Karman directed her message to

University students.
"Students' role doesn't end
in the classroom. Student-led
movements have always been
a part in changing history and
fulfilling peoples' dreams of
achieving freedom and dignity,"
she said in the interview trans-
lated from Arabic.
In an interview after the
event, Michael Bonner, chair of
the Department of Near East-
ern Studies, discussed Karman's
speech topic - the new nature of
women leading protests - and,
like Karman, said it serves as a
message for student activism.
"I really think one important
message for students is things
do change," Bonner said. "This
is something very new and very
However, some audience
members didn't agree with Kar-
man. During Karman's speech, a
man in the crowd held up signs
against Karman, including one
that read, "Thank you Univer-
sity of Michigan for hosting a
But many students were
enthusiastic about Karman's
visit to campus. In an interview
before the event, LSA sophomore
Zeinab Khalil said she believes
it is important to hear different
opinions on the revolution.
"I've been keeping up with

the Arab Spring and the Middle
Eastern revolution for a while
now and just to hear especially
from the Yemeni perspective, I
think that's really important,"
Khalil said.
LSA junior Sara Awad-Farid,
who heard Karman speak earlier
in the day, said that as a college
student and an Egyptian Ameri-
can, she appreciates Karman's
"I'm anEgyptian American so
this really hits close to home for
me," Awad-Farid said. "This is
the region that has undergone a
lot of political reform and social
reform, so to be able to hear
Karman come and speak of her
experience is one of those things
that you really hold close to your
heart for the rest of your life."
After the event, LSA senior
Eman Abdelhadi, president of
the Muslim Students' Associa-
tion, addressed the meaning and
importance of the University's
decision to bring Karman to
speak at the University.
"... I think it's really a sign
that this University is com-
mitted to progress and change
and that we're among the most
progressive institutions in the
world and that we're interested
in hearing from people on the
ground as events takes place,"
Abdelhadi said.
