City Council approves
street closure in front
of Ingalls Mall
Daily StaffReporter
When the University's newest
fundraising campaign launches
in November, more than a little
celebratory glitz will be on hand
for its kickoff.
On Monday evening, the Ann
Arbor City Council voted to
approve the closure of North
University Avenue between
Fletcher and Thayer Streets for
the Victors for Michigan cam-
paign launch celebration on Nov.
In September, the University
announced that an outdoor cel-
ebration on Ingalls Mall would
accompany the kickoff celebra-
tions. Following the event, Uni-
versity President Mary Sue
Coleman and campaign co-chair
Stephen Ross, a real-estate mogul
and major University donor, will
host the official "Victors for
Michigan" unveiling ceremony
at 8 p.m. inside Hill Auditorium.
Judy Malcolm, senior director
of executive communications at
the Office of University Devel-
opment, said the event is set to
occur in the area between Hill
Auditorium and the Michigan
League, adjacent to the Diag.

Beginning at 5 p.m., the Uni-
versity invites students, faculty
and community members to join
University donors and volunteers
for music, giveaways and free
Later that evening, students
will share how their University
experience has been influenced
by student aid, essentially the
reasons "Michigan needs vic-
tors," as referenced by the cam-
paign's branding.
Along the lines of a public
launch party, campaign strat-
egists are hoping to involve
students in the campaign, espe-
cially since administrators have
pegged student aid as the cam-
paign's top priority.
Campaign officials have
formed a student advisory com-
mittee to assist in planning and
associated philanthropic efforts.
In a February interview with
The Michigan Daily, Coleman
said students articulAting the
effect of financial aid would be
"We need to fashion this in a
way donors can get excited about
the difference they can make in
people's lives, so alot of this will
be storytelling about what stu-
dents have done and what the
impact of having various schol-
arships has been," Coleman said.
Though the branding and
limited celebration plans were
released in September, other
