Trotter House seeks new director

By MARLA GOLD
Trotter House, the University's multi-cultural
student center, has gone through some troubled
times in the past few years and may be headed that
way again. For the second time in the last year, Trot-
ter House may be without a director.
Last January, Michael Swanigan, a Project Com-
munity staff member, was appointed acting director
of the center. John Powell, the former director, was
fired from the University last spring.
Swanigan's term ends when Trotter House closes
for the summer on June 30, but no new director has
yet been found for the fall.
ELLEN OFFEN, assistant director of Student Ser-
vices who is in charge of finding a permanent direc-

tor, said that Swanigan may continue,in the position,
but so far he has not confirmed that he wants to
return in September.
Swanigan said he "may or may not be back in the
fall," although he had earlier said that he definitely
would not be back.
Since Swanigan took over the post last winter,
programming has included a minority student mixer
and a -study hall during study days for finals.
Although Swanigan said the mixer went well, he said
the "study hall didn't go as well as planned."
"ONLY ABOUT 25 students took advantage of the
study snacks and a quiet place to study," he said.
Trotter House, originally housed at the corner of

South and East University, was set up 13 years ago as
a political center for blacks, as a result of the Black
Action Movement strike. After that first building
burned down, the center was moved to its current
home on Washtenaw. It is now a center to serve all
minority students on campus.
But Randy McDuffy, Michigan Student Assembly's
minority affairs representative, said that one of the
main problems with Trotter House is that it is too
small to meet the needs of all the minority groups it
now serves.
No events have been planned for the fall, but Offen
said that when the student resident staff moves in
before the start of fall classes they will plan the
programs for the term.
Union
doors will

be opened
to disabled
By MARLA GOLD
The Michigan Union will open its
doors - electronically - to the Univer-
sity's handicapped students this fall as
part of an agreement with the Ac-
cessibility Rights Coalition.
Jim Luckey of the coalition's ad-
visory board said that an agreement
was reached last week to install elec-
tronic doors and a ramp on the Union's
north side, making the Union ac-
cessible to the handicapped for the first
time.
UNTIL CONSTRUCTION was com-
pleted last summer on the basement of
the Union for the MUG restaurants, the
only accessible entrance was another
door of the Union's north side which
members of the coalition claim is too
narrow for wheelchairs to get through.
A tentative agreement was also
reached to expand the hours of the
