ANNUAL LEADERSHIP BREAKFAST

Great Lakes

ByPETER SHAHIN
Daily Staff Reporter
At her yearly leadership
breakfast, University President
Mary Sue Coleman announced

the formal creation of a center
that will be dedicated to study-
ing the ecological health of the
Great Lakes.
The project is closely tied
with the Great Lakes Resto-
ration Initiative, an- endeav-
or established by the Obama
administration to strengthen
preservation efforts in the Great
Lakes region. Since its inception
in 2009, the GLRI has evolved
into a partnership of 11 fed-

ROYAL OAK, Mich. - Sen.
John McCain (R-Ariz.) made a
visit to a Republican campaign
office here Tuesday to recog-
nize Michigan residents' hur-
ricane relief efforts and thank
volunteers for their efforts in
support of Republican presi-
dential nominee Mitt Romney's
campaign.
With recent polls projecting
a narrowing margin between
the two presidential candidates
in the state, both campaigns
have worked to rev up last-
minute efforts in Michigan.
McCain's impromptu Michigan
visit comes on the heels of a
slew of campaign stops by for-

mer first lady Laura Bush and
Ann Romney, the wife of the
GOP nominee, throughout the
state earlier this week.
The Obama campaign also
confirmed Tuesday that it
would buy its first television
ads in Michigan. The ads will
begin airing Thursday and run
through Election Day for the
first time this campaign.
Romney campaign spokes-
woman Kelsey Knight said
McCain stopped visited Bloom-
field Hills and Royal Oak Vic-
tory Centers in Michigan to
stress the efforts of GOP cam-
paign headquarters throughout
the state to assist the victims of
Superstorm Sandy, which rav-
aged the East Coast this week.

Members of the University's
chapter of College Republicans
crowded into a Mason Hall
classroom on Tuesday night
to discuss plans for the final
week of campaigning leading
into Election Day, as recent
polls show a constantly nar-
rowing margin between the
two presidential candidates.
About 30 members of the
group attended the meeting,
which featured visits from
Michigan Supreme Court can-
didate Colleen O'Brien and
Republican University regent
candidates Dan Horning and
Robert Steele. Attendees also
discussed way to advocate for

the Republican ticket both
nationally and locally.
In an Oct. 24 Fox 2 News
Detroit poll of likely Michigan
voters, President Obama led
Romney by only 46.92 percent
to 46.56 percent, a difference
well within the 2.93 percent
margin of error.
Horning, who previously
served as a regent from 1995 to
2002, told the College Repub-
licans that this election has
the potential to influence the
political reasoning of the Uni-
versity's Board of Regents,
which he said has been liber-
ally slanted for too long.
"The liberal agenda (on the
board) ... is not looking out for
you," Horning said. "We can't

Daily StaffReporter
At her annual leadership
breakfast Tuesday morning,
University President Mary Sue
Coleman announced a host of
new initiatives, ranging from
renovations of the Earl V. Moore

building on North Campus to a
new fellowship for undergradu-
ate students in honor of Univer-
sity alum Raoul Wallenberg.
During the 45-minute speech
before a gathering of University
executives, senior faculty and
select students in the Collo-
quium Room of the Ross School
of Business, Coleman contin-
ued to refer back to the spirit of
Wallenberg, a 1935 University
graduate. During the Holocaust,
the Swedish-born Wallenberg
worked in his capacity as a
diplomat to save 100,000 Jews
