policy obligates
employees to act

A University employee has
reported that a student told her
that she was sexually assaulted
after attending aparty on Feb. 15,
according to University Police.
The incident was reported to
UMPD at 12:10 p.m. Thursday, six
days after the night of the alleged
assault. At the time of the report,
the location of the alleged sexual
assault was unknown. UMPD
spokeswoman Diane Brown said
investigators determined that the
assault took place off campus.
The UMPD incident log shows
that the case was closed Sat-
urday. Brown said there was
no report filed for the assault
because the victim asked police
to not investigate the incident
any further.
Brown said the police are still
looking into the report to see if
there is a threat to the commu-
nity, in which case the depart-
ment would release a crime
The assault would be the third

sexual assault reported by police
this semester.
The student arrested for the
Jan. 13 rape that was reported in
West Quad Residence Hall still
has not been arraigned, Brown
said Monday.
The suspect, who allegedly
raped the victim after walking
to West Quad following an off-
campus party, was arrested in
January after a tip led to the sus-
pect. The student was charged
and released pending warrant
has not yet been arraigned because
the crime lab is still processing evi-
dence. The lab must analyze anum-
ber of tests, which could take up to
severalmonthsto process.
Evidence will be sent to the
Washtenaw County Prosecuting
Attorney's Office to determine if
chargeswill be levied against the

Students build site
to promote Motor
City internships
For the Daily
Art & Design sophomore Matt
Rosner and his friends want to
change perceptions on campus
about Detroit and inform Uni-
versity students that there's
more to the city than date par-

ties and community service.
Rosner is the head creator
of Detroit Wolverine, a web-
site linking Detroit-based com-
panies with the University to
increase access to internships.
Rosner said he was looking to
involve students in an innova-
tive way with the culture of the
"The goal of the organiza-
tion was to engage with Detroit
and the University in a way that
hadn't been done before," Ros-
ner said. "Most of those orga-

nizations (already involved in
Detroit) did community service
or service-geared learning... but
when we collected together and
talked about it, it's not some-
thing we wanted to engage in."
Detroit Wolverine works on a
rolling basis, uploading links to
companies' internship applica-
tions as companies join the pro-
gram. There are various types of
positions offered, both paid and
unpaid, and all from companies
within the Detroit area.
Rosner said he sees intern-

ships as just one part of a "multi-
angled approach" to get students
more excited and engaged about
"When you mention Detroit
the word association is either
crime or sports, and that's
about it," Rosner said, "There's
a lot of really cool stuff that not
many people know about in Ann
Arbor, whether they're from the
metro Detroit (area) or they're
from across the nation."

UMHS doctors
make list of top
U.S. physicians

550 listed as
best in the nation in
their specialties
Daily Staff Reporter
On the heels of a previous dis-
tinction, 505 individual Univer-
sity of Michigan Health System
doctors were named to the 2012-
13 Best Doctors in America list.
UMHS is the most represented
institution on the list, which puts
the physicians in the top-five per-
cent nationwide for their special-
ties. The UMHS physicians on
the list have increased about 16
percent from 433 when it was last
compiled two years ago by the
Boston-based Best Doctors.
The list contains more than
45,000 physicians in 40 specialties
who were selected on the basis of
peer nominations by specialty and
surveys regarding their specific
practices and patient satisfaction.
Though the awards were indi-
vidual, Internal Medicine Prof.
Kim Eagle, director of the UMHS
Cardiovascular Center, said he
believes the award strengthens
the reputation and morale of the
University as a whole.

"The University has a lot of
people named to this list year
have so many physicians achiev-
ing that standard," Eagle said.
"I'm very fortunate that I work in
an institution where excellence in
clinical care, research, and edu-
cation are basically expected."
Eagle also believes that mak-
ing these lists, though they are
subjective bynature, is "integral"
in continuing to develop the next
generation of physicians.
"As doctors, we seek recogni-
tion indirectly," Eagle said. "You
want your work to speak for
itself, but in aspiring to be the
best and achieving this caliber
of recognition in all divisions, it's
important to remember you're
only as good as your last patient."
Prof. Teresa Jacobs, director
of the Neurological Intensive
Care Unit, said she was notified
last week that she had achieved
recognition for the second time.
Because Jacobs works with
patients in the NICU, she said
she doesn't foresee that this dis-
tinction will have a major effect
on her clinical practice, but that
could be the case for doctors who
do more outpatient care.
"I work with very ill patients

The meeting began with
a discussion on the need to

developed by the University's
Alumni Association in 2008.
The program aims to increase

relative newcomer to CSG after

Proppe said he wants CSG to
be an organization that helps
student organizations and fos-
ters cooperation among them.
"I think the culture of the
organization comes from the
top," Proppe said. "People
