Core team of
employees support
survivors of
sexual assault
By CHARLOTTE JENKINS
Daily StaffReporter
For 168 consecutive hours at
a time, a full week, Anne Huh-
man doesn't let a 2005 black flip
phone out of her sight. Huh-

man is the program manager
for education and prevention at
the University's Sexual Assault
Prevention and Awareness
Center, and one of only five
people who currently handle
the crisis hotline.
Huhman and three oth-
ers serve as advocates in the
SAPAC office, where survivors
of trauma can receive support,
counseling and resources for
various issues. SAPAC staff
also educate students about
sexual assault to create a cam-

pus environment focused on
prevention.
The center was founded in
1986 after University students
protested the lack of a rape cri-
sis center on campus.
Huhman became an advo-
cate for survivors of sexual or
domestic violence, which cul-
minated in her employment at
SAPAC.
After jgraduating from the
University of Wisconsin in
2002, Huhman took a job at
Underground Railroad, Inc.,

a domestic violence shelter
in Saginaw, Mich. There, she
worked with schools and juve-
nile detention centers and
gained experience educating
youth about sexual assault and
harassment, dating violence,
stalking and healthy relation-
ships, while working with sur-
vivors.
In 2004, Huhman entered
the University's School of Social
Work and began her work at
SAPAC for her field placement.

Solar car 'Quantum'to
compete in U.S. race

Older car will be
used in wake of
lastest car's crash
By SAM GRINGLAS
DailyStaffReporter
Though a crash left its car
damaged in the Australian Out-
back last month, the University's
Solar Car Team is already mak-

ilg plans for another race.
On Monday, the team
announced its intention to com-
pete in the American Solar
Challenge 2014, an eight-day,
1,700-mile race from Austin,
Texas to St. Paul, Minn.
But after the damage sus-
tained at the World Solar
Challenge in Australia, the
team's latest car, Genera-
tion, won't make an appear-
ance in the next race. The car

was pushed by a gust of wind
whije at a stop on the fourth
day of the race, causing it to
fall into a ditch. Instead, the
team announced plans to race
its previous model, Quantum,
a three-wheeled vehicle that
weighs about 300 pounds and
can reach 105 mph.

CSG discusses absence at
meetings, election demerits

CAMPUS LIFE
Circle K to organize 24 hours of service

Reps can now be
excused at speaker's
discretion
By CAROLYN GEARIG
Daily StaffReporter
Eight days before the fall
semester's Central Student Gov-
ernment elections, the assembly
met for their 10th meeting Tues-

day night.
CSG discussed two reso-
lutions and passed one. LSA
senior Pratik Ghosh, a CSG rep-
resentative, authored a resolu-
tion to modify CSG's absence
excusal procedure, eliminating
the requirement for excusal of
a two-thirds assembly vote. The
resolution passed unanimously
- the speaker of the assem-
bly can now excuse absences
because of illness, academic

obligations, family emergencies
or religious holidays at his orcher
discretion.
LSA senior Annika Conrad,
co-chair of the Rules Commit-
tee, introduced a resolution
to change the CSG elections
demerit system to a violation
and penalty system. Instead of
the demerit system, in which
those running for CSG who have
committed offenses can contin-

By TANAZ AHMED
For The Daily
Starting at 8 a.m on Saturday,
University students and mem-
bers of the Ann Arbor com-
munity will have the chance to
volunteer for 24 consecutive
hours.

Thisyear, the annual 24-hour
Service Day hosted by the Uni-
versity's chapter of Circle K - a
student organization that pro-
motes community service and
leadership - will provide 108
service opportunities. Projects
will take place in a variety of
locations and range from ran-
dom acts of kindness to planting
trees in Detroit.
Approximately 50 student
organizations have signed up
to participate so far and will
be joined by local nonprofits

and businesses such as Michi-
gan Abilities Center and Tantr6
Farm, an organic farm located
in Chelsea, Mich.
LSA senior Alex Novo, Circle
K's external vice president, said
the broad range of volunteering
opportunities is meant to appeal
to a large group of people with
varying interests.
"The biggest differentiation,
other than the fact that ours is
a full 24 hours, between this
service day and other ones like
