After Coleman's trip to
the country, classes and
events aim to change
popular perceptions
By AMIA DAVIS
Daily StaffReporter
University President Mary Sue Cole-
man brought students back a souvenir
from her recent trip to India: a new
theme semester.
Mirroring the University's involve-
ment in the subcontinent, the LSA
Winter 2014 Theme Semester explores
India's changing role in the world
through courses, lectures, museum
exhibits and other opportunities.
Students from India make up the
fourth largest group of international
students at the University. Additionally,
the University of Michigan India Alum-
ni Association has over 1400 members,
according to the organization's Face-

book page.
Called "India in the World," the
theme semester will focus on changes
in the world's second-most-populous
country. Associate Prof. Farina Mir,
director of South Asian Studies and the
Winter 2014 Theme Semester, said the
theme aims to change some popular
perceptions of India.
"Conceptions of India have been
changing from this sort of limited spec-
trum that focuses on mysticism and
poverty to this sort of complex under-
standing of this dynamic society and
impact on the world," Mir said.
She added that - despite the fact
India is the world's largest democracy
and has the largestmiddle class - many
reduce it to a backward, poverty-strick-
en nation.
LSA has offered theme semesters
since 1980, according to its website. The
college fuses the University's classroom
and research opportunities to provide a
comprehensive discussion of a particu-
lar topic.

Alabama offensive
coordinator to replace
Borges, reports say
By ZACH HELFAND
and LIZ VUKELICH
Daily Sports Writers
The Michigan football team has
hired Alabama offensive coordinator
DougNussmeier, accordingto multiple

reports, to replace former offensive
coordinator Al Borges after the Michi-
gan Athletic Department announced
Wednesday afternoon that he would
not be returning for the 2014 season.
The news, which appears to have
been broken by Football Scoop, came
just five hours after the Wolverines
announced that Borges had been fired.
ESPN's Joe Schad also tweeted confir-
mation.
CBS Sports's Bruce Feldman report-
ed that Nussmeier, 43, will become

one of the top-five paid coordinators
in college football. That would put his
salary at no less than $850,000. Nuss-
meier made about $680,000 at Ala-
bama. Michigan defensive coordinator
Greg Mattison is the fourth-highest
paid assistant in the nation, earning
more than $851,000, while Borges was
No. 9, at about $709,000.
The Nussmeier hiring likely signals
a continuation of the offensive phi-
losophy favored under Michigan coach

GREEK LIFE
University
will add new
sorority in
fall 2014
Gamma Phi Beta
the first of three
new chapters to
be introduced
By AMIA DAVIS
Daily Staff Reporter
Gamma Phi Beta sorority will
be reestablishing a chapter on
campus in the fall after receiving
approval from the University's
Office of Greek Life.
Mary Beth Seiler, director of
Greek Life, wrote in an e-mail
that on-campus sororities are
becoming too large. Seiler said
adding more chapters rather
than turning pledges away is the
best way to accommodate inter-
est.
To ensure students are not
turned away by the increasingly
crowded sororities, Seiler wrote
that the Panhellenic Association
voted to install two more chap-
ters on campus, as long as the
community is strong enough to
support both old and new chap-
ters at the University. The Pan-
hellenic Association plans to add
