Debate concerns salary disclosure
Forty years ago this week Twenty-five years ago this Ten years ago this week
(March 22,1974) week (March 22,1989) (March 17, 2004)

Regent Gerald Dunn (D-Lan-
sing) announced plans to intro-
duce a motion at the next meeting
oftheUniversity Board ofRegents
to publicly disclose of the salaries
of all University employees.
The announcement marked
Dunn's second attempt to gain
public disclosure; he introduced a
similar motion a year earlier that
failed 6-2.
Dunn told the The Michi-
gan Daily that his motivation
to reintroduce the motion was
spurred by a recent vote by East-
ern Michigan University's Board
of Regents, who voted in favor of
public salary disclosure.

The Michigan Student Assem-
bly debated a motion to condemn
four representatives for their
proposal to "de-recognize" the
United Coalition Against Racism.
The representatives submitted
this proposal following a People
of Color Conference that was
sponsored by UCAR.
The four members submitted
their proposal on the basis that
UCAR violated the MSA Com-
piled Code and All-Campus Con-
stitutionbecause certain sessions
within the conference were only
open to people of color.

The Senate Advisory Com-
mittee on University Affairs, the
faculty representative body on
campus, passed a motion requir-
ing administrators to undergo
evaluations by faculty every two
to three years.
Aerospace Engineering Prof.
William Kauffman said the pur-
pose of the amendment was to
correct a lack of oversight in the
University's chain of command.
"The logic (behind the amend-
ment) was that students evaluate
the teachers, the teachers evalu-
ate students, but no one evaluates
the bosses," Kauffman said.

South Asian Progressive Alli-
ance, a former student organi-
zation, obtained the rights to
perform the show at the Univer-
sity in 2006.
This show's theme, titled "We
Kiss and Tell," sought to contest
the view of what it means to be
a lady and provide a change for
women on campus to express
Actress Moni Ramaswamy
gave a monologue written by
University alum Aditi Hardikar,
titled "A Queer Complaint." The
performance questioned why
only gay people have to "come
out" and disputed stereotypes
about the appearance of lesbians,

among other things.
"We really wanted our show to
represent the female voices of this
campus ... and their experiences
whether they're awesome and
funny or sad and empowering,"
Aggarwal said.
Aggarwal said 13 of the mono-
logues were written by students,
which makes the event more
"It opened my eyes to a lot of
things that women of color go
through that isn't always heard or
expressed because of the society
we live in," said LSA senior Dan
Green. "It's good to have people
that actually experienced these
things and talk about them from
their own perspective without
any other factors influencing what
they're saying."
Last semester, the group wanted
to garner monologue submissions
from across campus. To help stu-

dents with their writing, they part-
nered with the Sweetland Center
for Writing to have a workshop.
"I think this show is something
unique for the South Asian com-
munity because everyone knows
about the dance teams but this
is something different it shows
some diversity," actress Amanda
Nanyakkara, the event's head of
marketing, said. "When they hear,
'South Asian,' they think 'Indian
dance team,' they don't know
about women's experiences."
PerformingYoni kiBaatrequires
the proceeds tobe donated to orga-
nizations that help fight domestic
violence. Proceeds from this per-
formance will be donated to Mai
Family Services, a community
based non-profit that was founded
to fight against domestic violence
and mental health issues and meet
the unique needs of the South
Asian communitvof Michigan.


Engineering senior Nick Lemmer, owner of lorio's Gelateria, discusses his business at The Michigan Daily's
Entrepeneurship Panel-at the Student Publications Building Friday.

for today's reception I got out my
TWIT TE R dictionary and looked up Mary Sue
Coleman," Daniels said, as laughs
@m i c h iga n d a i ly followed from the crowd. "She was
defined as someone with expert

leadership qualities, dogged deter-
mination, and an unwillingness to
take no for an answer."
Daniels spoke of his first inter-
action with Coleman, taking place
on the set of Dumb and Dumber.
He said Coleman told him she
should play his mother in the
movie's sequel.
"Atnthatpoint, a very large secu-
rity guard came up and said, 'Jeff,
is this woman bothering you?'
Before I could say a word she said,
'I'm Mary Sue Coleman, I'm his
mother,"' he said.
Laughter filled the ballroom
and Daniels tied the joke up with a
punch: "The security guard looks
at me and says, 'Jeff, is that true?'
and I look down at this fireball
of commitment and confidence
and what looked like the eyes of
a crazy person and said, 'No, she's
not my mother, but one day she
is going to be the president of the
University of Michigan," Daniels
said. "True story."
A video followed with inter-
views by administrators, faculty,
staff and students that highlight-
ed Coleman's character and con-
tributions to the University. E.
Royster Harper, vice president for
student life, narrated the first seg-
ment of the film.
"Universities are magical plac-
es," she said. "The values and prin-
ciples thatthe students and faculty
and staff embody and try to live
out as they do their work I think is

part of the magic. Their commit-
ment to the purpose and mission
I think is part of that magic. And
in this place it has a long history
of trying to be the leader and best
when there is no path that's clear,
even when no one else is doing it.
We talk a lot about there is some
magic here. And I think Mary Sue
has been part of that magic."
Another portion of the film
showed two students recounting
their shock after learning Cole-
man was their faculty mentor.
"I was in complete shock," one
of the students said. "I was really
excited that I could get a real inter-
action with the president of the
Various interviews touched
on Coleman's commitment to
engaged education, entrepreneur-
ship, issues of diversity, sustain-
ability, arts and fundraising, as
well as her visibility on campus,
arts, engagement with the staff
and accomplishments in trans-
forming the physical landscape of
the University's campus.
President Barack Obama made a
brief appearance in a clip from his
visit to campus as commencement
speaker in 2009.
Coleman's voice concluded the
video, as she spun the cube in front
of the Fleming Administration
"For today, goodbye. For tomor-
row, good luck. Forever Go Blue,"
she said.
