Victors for Michigan
kicks off with night
of speeches, events
By PETER SHAHIN and

It's not often that hundreds of
students party with the Univer-

sity president.
Braving chilly temperatures,
students, staff, faculty and alum-
ni turned out Friday to celebrate
the formal launch of the Victors
for Michigan fundraising cam-
paign. Following an outdoor
community festival, attendees
crowded Hill Auditorium for a
glitzy campaign kickoff featur-
ing University President Mary
Sue Coleman and campaign
chair Stephen Ross.

Organized by the Universi-
ty's Office of Development, the
festival and launch celebration
aimed to gather student and
donor support for the Victors for
Michigan fundraising campaign
- an ambitious $4 billion drive
slated to run until 2018.
With the inside of Hill Audi-
toriumbathed in blue light, cam-
paign organizers set the mood
on high as pop music blared
and crowds of yellow-shirted

students, alumni and guests
filled Hill's lower bowl and then
flowed up to the balcony.
In a carefully choreographed
lineup, discussion of the cam-
paign's top priorities - student
support, engaged learning and
bold ideas - were punctuated
by professionally produced vid-
eos and featured students.
For every campaign goal, one

Under Coleman,
U' sees up tick in
study abroad

With increased focus
and funding, more
students study outside
of the United States
By SHOHAM GEVA
Daily Staff Reporter
Early Monday, the University
announced that it now ranks tenth in
* a national list of universities with the
most students studying abroad. The fig-
ure is significant in a way, as the Univer-
sity didn't even make the list between
2002 and 2005.
The 2012 to 2013 Institute of Inter-
national Education Open Doors survey
* showed that the University enrolled
2,060 students in study-abroad pro-
grams in 2011-2012, a 6 percent increase
over the previous period.
One of University President Mary Sue
Coleman's presidential initiatives during
her time at the helm has been an expan-
sion of study-abroad programs - some-
thing that wasn't a priority when she
began her tenure in 2002.
Between 2002 and 2005, fewer than
1,300 students enrolled in study-abroad
programs. The University earned a spot
on the list starting in 2006, and enroll-

ment has since fluctuated around 2,000
students.
However, when it comes to assessing
the quality of study-abroad programs,
the raw number of enrolled students
doesn't tell the whole story. According
to JamesPaul Holloway, vice provost for
global and engaged education, the sur-
vey only reflects students doing study
abroad for credit.
"The data you don't see there is the
co-curricular that that survey has not
systematically collected." said Holloway.
"The message for us, I think, is that for
students it's not about credit. It's about
educational experiences abroad, wheth-
er they're for credit or not."
The results from the 2010 to 2011
school year placed the University's
enrollment of 1,964 squarely in the
middle of the pack of peer institutions,
between a high of 2,451 at the University
of California, Los Angeles and a low of
1,347 at the University of Iowa. The full
2012-2013 ranking list was not available
Sunday.
Those co-curricular, or non credit-
granting opportunities, attracted 400
University students in 2005. By 2010,
co-curricular enrollment had grown to
1,500 students. The most popular desti-
nation for credit-granting programs was
Spain, with 312 students, followed by

About 500 people watched Sunday
as veterans of the United States Navy
and Army battled during a game of
wheelchair basketball to celebrate both
the service of military veterans as well
as the accomplishments of those with
physical disabilities.
The Army vs. Navy Wheelchair Bas-
ketball Game served as the last event
in the Investing in Ability Week spon-

the Veterans Week celebrations at the
University that will continue until Fri-
day.
The Navy may have overpowered
with a 31-22 win over the Army, but
there was more to the afternoon than
just the scoreboard.
Gerald Hoff, the event's organizer
and an insurance representative at the
University of Michigan Health System,
said the event was held to celebrate all
veterans regardless of physical ability.
"There may be many celebrity-type
games, but when it comes to Army-
Navy, you can say it's on," Hoff said.
"When that ball drops, these guys and
ladies go at it and they are very serious

as one member from the U.S. Paralym-

Paul Schulte, co-captain of the U.S.
Paralympics men's wheelchair basket-
ball team, was originally scheduled to
participate in the event but was unable
to play due to a recent injury. However,
he flew in from Tampa, Fla., to support
the veterans.
