NCAA basketball ban lifted

Ten years ago this week
The NCAA's postsea-
son ban on Michigan's bas-
ketball program was lifted.
The ban, along with four
years of probation and the loss
of one scholarship per year,
was put into place after the
NCAA learned four players
accepted more than $600,000
from Ed Martin during the
1990s. The organization also
demanded those four play-
ers be dissociated from
the University for 10 years.
Thomas Yeager, former chair
of the NCAA Committee on
Infractions, said the infrac-
tion was "one of the three or

four most egregious violations
of the NCAA bylaws in the his-
tory of the association." How-
ever, the NCAA Infractions
Appeals Committee decided the
postseason ban was excessive.
Thirty years ago this week
Ann Arbor Public Schools
teachers ended a 16-day
strike and returned to class-
rooms, reluctantly accepting
a 2.5-percent wage increase.
Ann Arbor teachers' sala-
ries ranked 75th among the
500 Michigan school dis-
tricts, though most felt the
2.5-percent pay raise was
"grossly inadequate," accord-

ing to Dean Bodley, former
vice president of the Ann
Arbor Education Association.
Sixty years ago this week
The University's Board of
Regents approved a $2.7-mil-
lion expenditure to provide
additional student housing
over two years. The approval
allowed the University to file
preliminary applications with
a federal agency for loans to
cover the cost of construction.
The other $1 million went
toward the construction of 100
married-student housing units.

Obama calls for gun reform in
wake of Navy Yard shooting

UMPD chief promoted
to security and safetyjob


President says fight
for gun laws 'ought
to obsess us'
President Barack Obama on
Sunday memorialized the victims
of the Washington Navy Yard
shooting by urging Americans
not to give up on a transformation
in gun laws that he argued are to
blame for an epidemic of violence.
"There is nothing inevitable
about it - it comes about because
of decisions we make or fail to
make," Obama said.
Reprising his role of the nation's
consoler in chief after yet another
mass shooting, Obama issued a call
to action on gun control measures
that failed to pass earlier this year
and show no new momentum in
the wake of last week's rampage at
a military installation just blocks
from the Capitol.
"Our tears are not enough,"
Obama told thousands gathered

to mourn at the Marine

Obama joined military leaders
9) in eulogizing the dozen victims
killed in last Monday's shooting,
speaking from the parade
grounds at the Marine Barracks,
a site personally selected by
Thomas Jefferson because of
its close marching distance to
/ m the Navy Yard. The memorial
service came on the first day
of fall, which shone brightly in
Washington, with sun sparkling
off the instruments being played
by the Navy Band and the gold
dress uniform buttons worn by so
many in the crowd.
The invitation-only crowd
included around 4,000 mourners,
with the victims' tearful, black-
clad family members directly in
front of the speakers' stage. The
president and first lady Michelle
Obama met privately with the
families before the service, White
House officials said.

Piersante will take
role as DPSS C00
and director of
security services
ManagingNews Editor
In another step in the con-
tinuing reorganization of the
University's security agencies,
University Police Chief Joe
Piersante has been named chief
operations officer of the Divi-
sion of Public Safety and Secu-
rity and director of University
Security Services.
Piersante will continue in
his position until a new chief
has been selected. The Spel-
man and Johnson Group, a
search firm that specializes
in higher education, has been
hired to assist in the search for
a replacement.
When Piersante first took
the top post, the University's
Police force was known as the
Department of Public Safety.
He first served as interim exec-
utive director of public safety
in February 2011, when former
director Ken Magee went on
sick leave.
Later that year, he again
assumed the role of executive
director on an interim basis
after former chief Greg O'Dell
returned to his previous job as
director of public safety and
chief of police at Eastern Michi-
gan University. O'Dell commit-
ted suicide just a month later.
For most of the last two
years, Piersante has prevailed
over a law enforcement orga-
nization that has been partly
blamed for serious communi-
cation issues, and as a result,
the agency has gone through
immense change, including the
formation of the Division of
Public Safety and Security to

unite Housing Security, Hos-
pital Security, and Police under
one umbrella organization.
director, Piersante will over-
see several different major
security initiatives, including
infrastructure management,
museums security, coordina-
tion of safety and security
efforts for major events, con-
tract security and adminis-
tration of the University's 911
Communications Center.
In a statement released Fri-
day, DPSS executive director
Eddie Washington, Jr. praised
Piersante's work both as chief
and as interim director of DPSS.
"I'm very appreciative of the
many years of successful service
that Joe has made to the uni-
versity and to the police depart-
ment," Washington said. "When
the new division was formed
last fall, Joe willingly took on
the additional role to lead the
transition. I'm grateful that his
leadership will continue to ben-
efit our community through our
campus security efforts."
Washington said DPSS
has now chosen to appoint a
new chief because Piersante's
expertise is needed at a strate-
gic level.
"As the new Division has
continued to evolve, we rec-
ognized a greater need at the
Division level for Joe's exper-
tise," Washington said. "To
meet the strategic plans and
goals of the Division and the
Police Department, we needed
to expand Joe's role."
The job posting notes that a
successful candidate for UMPD
chief must have a bachelor's
degree, leadership experience
in law enforcement and, among
other things, an understanding
of student life. The posting does
not detail exactly how much
experience a qualified candi-
date should have.
Spelman and Johnson Group

will be compensated one-
third of the first year salary of
the new UMPD chief, which
could range from $150,000 to
$160,000, according to officials.
Andy Burchfield, the Uni-
versity's director of emergency
management, will serve as
chair of the search commit-
tee. In addition, the following
people will serve on the com-
