Josephson agreed. "There shouldn't
be any question that students should
be involved," he said. "They should
be primary actors in the review."
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline),
who sponsored the resolution to
review the guidelines, said yesterday
that he did not mean to keep students
off the committee.
"IT IS certainly not my intent to ex-
clude students from that," Roach
said. He added, however, that studen-
ts normally aren't involved in
developing policies under the regents'
jurisdiction. "Basically, there will be
eight people determining what the
guidelines will be: the elected regents
of the University," Roach said.
. Roach also pointed out that the
review by faculty members and
executive officers now only involves
reporting back to the regents, not ac-
tual policy decisions. "I'm sure we'll
get a lot of input," he said.
All involved agree the guidelines
are imperfect, yet. MSA said that
changing the policy because of the
decision on Tanter's project "will set
an ill-advised precedent for decision-
making at the University," according
to the letter.
BUT ROACH said the review was
sparked by repeated problems with
the guidelines, which were passed in
1973. "The Tanter case is only one in-
cident, but there are many
problems," Roach said. "The Tanter
case illustrates a problem. Everyone
sees it and says, 'This is good for
