of their R&D expenditures. The
University's medical school was
eighth on the list, which was led
by Duke University, University
of California, San Francisco and
Johns Hopkins University.
Stephen Forrest, the Univer-
sity's vice president of research,
said in a statement that the
rankings represent the continu-
ing growth of the University's
research initiatives and the indi-
viduals who make them possible.
"Our continuing success in
expanding our research enter-
prise is a direct measure of the
exceptional energy and creativity
of our faculty and students," For-

CSG's Tuesday meeting com-
menced with discussions on
a resolution to eliminate and
amend ambiguous language in
CSG's Compiled Code. Earlier,
the official document was found
to incorrectly dictate the respon-
sibilities of council members and
contained several typos.
The changes included remov-
ing any responsibilities from the
CSG's office staff and changed the
timeline for each semester's bud-
Forrest added that in addition
to driving education on campus,
University research is bolstering
local and state economies.
"Our research enterprise is
central to our mission as a pub-
lic university, because the excel-
lence of our scholarship is key to
educating students at the fore-
front of human understanding,
and it fuels our collective spirit of
inquiry, innovation and entrepre-
neurship," Forrest said. "Innova-
tion is the engine that invigorates
and drives both the regional and
Ronda Britt, the NSF survey
statistician who managed the
project, said over 900 universi-
ties in the nation were adminis-
tered the survey. She added that
the universities were required to
have spent at least $150,000 on
get, instructing that it be submit-
ted "no later than two weeks into
the fall terms or no later than one
week prior to the start of the win-
"This (resolution) is going to
fix all of the things that we came
across and disagreed with when
going through the compiled code,"
said Business Junior Michael
Proppe, the assembly chair.
An article that bans Assem-
bly members form working for
University President Mary Sue
Coleman, the University's Board
of Regents, deans and executive
officers was also resolved to be
removed from the compiled code.
"This is a conflict of interest
that would have affected me and
the others working in the (Rules)
committee," Proppe noted.
Assembly members also again
discussed a resolution that would
limit the time period given to
research in the previous fiscal
year in order to be selected for
this year's survey.
"We ask about expenditures,
the various sources of funding,
the various fields of research (of a
university)," Britt said.
She explained that the survey
also posed questions related to
costs of research for specific enti-
ties like equipment and staff sala-
Britt said that the NSF is a
"clearing house" for the general
populous in the science commu-
nity, noting that the NSF relays
the information the universities
give them through the surveys.
Though she was not in a position
to speak on behalf of the NSF, she
said the University's top ranking
could be attributed to its large
guest speakers at assembly meet-
In discussions at earlier CSG
meetings, several members of
the Assembly expressed concern
regarding the time period for
Members of the Assembly put
a resolution forward to provide,
each guest speaker an allotted
ten minutes for discussion. If
the speaker planned on provid-
ing handouts, it must be sent to
the assembly speaker 48 hours in
advance. The resolution will be
revisited at the next meeting.
"If you can't tell the Assembly
what you need in 10 minutes or
less, you yourself don't have a big
enough grasp on what you need,"

FOLLOW THE DAILY
CAIRO (AP) - The same
chants used against Hosni
Mubarak were turned againsthis
successor Tuesday as more than
200,000 people packed Egypt's
Tahrir Square in the biggest
challenge yet to Islamist Presi-
dent Mohammed Morsi.
The massive, flag-waving
throng protesting Mhrsi's asser-
tion of near-absolute powers
rivaled some ofthe largest crowds
that helped drive Mubarak from
office last year.
"The people want to bring
down the regime!" and "erhal,
erhal" - Arabic for "leave, leave"
- rang out across the plaza, this
time directed at Egypt's first
freely elected president.
The protests were sparked
by edicts Morsi issued last week
that effectively neutralize the
judiciary, the last branch of gov-
ernment he does not control. But
they turned into a broader out-
pouring of anger against Morsi'
and his Muslim Brotherhood,
which opponents say have used
election victories to monopolize
power, squeeze out rivals and
dictate a new, Islamist constitu-
tion, while doing little to solve
Egypt's mounting economic and
Clashes broke out in several
cities, with Morsi's opponents
attacking Brotherhood offices,
settingfire to atleast one. Protest-
ers and Brotherhood members
pelted each other with stones and
firebombs in the Nile Delta cityof
Mahalla el-Kobra, leaving at least
100 people injured.
"Power has exposed the
Brotherhood. We discovered
their true face," said Laila Salah,
ahousewife at the Tahrir protest
who said she voted for Morsi in
last summer's presidential elec-
tion. After Mubarak, she said,
Egyptians would no longer
accept being ruled by an auto-
"It's like a wife whose hus-
band was beating her and then she
divorces him and becomes free,"
she said. "If she remarries she'll
neveraccept anotherdayof abuse."
Gehad el-Haddad, a senior
adviser to the Brotherhood and
its political party, said Morsi
would not back down on his
edicts. "We are not rescinding
the declaration," he told The
That sets the stage for a
drawn-out battle that could
throw the nation into greater
turmoil. Protestorganizers have
called for another mass rally Fri-
day. If the Brotherhood responds
with demonstrations of its own,
as some of its leaders have hint-
ed, it would raise the prospect of
greater violence after a series of
clashes between the two camps
in recent days.
A tweet by the Brotherhood
warned that if the opposition
was able to bring out 200,000 to
300,000, "they should brace for
millions in support" of Morsi.
Another flashpoint could come
Sunday, when the constitutional
court is to rule on whether to dis-
solve the assembly writing the
new constitution, which is domi-
nated by the Brotherhood and
its Islamist allies. Morsi's edicts
ban the courts from disbanding
the panel; if the court defies him
and rules anyway, it would be a
direct challenge that could spill
over into the streets.
"Then we are in the face
of the challenge between the
supreme court and the presi-
dency," said Nasser Amin, head
of the Arab Center for the Inde-
pendence of the Judiciary and
the Legal Profession. "We are
about to enter a serious con-
flict" on both the legal and
street level, he said.
Morsi and his supporters
say the decrees were neces-
sary to prevent the judiciary
from blocking the "revolution's
goals" of a transition to democ-
