vices, Luskin said. "It's absolutely a
move in the right direction. Unless it
is to be offered only to the elite, child-
care must be subsidized. I don't think
the community is willing to jeopar-
dize quality childcare for price."
But despite the student government
subsidy and a more commodious facili-
ty at the Towsley Center, Luskin insisted
that further improvements need to be
"It's reasonable to expect that the
University should have an excellent

program, but it has a long way to go in
terms of providing quality childcare,
especially for the student population
that needs it," he said.
At the June meeting of the University
Board of Regents, the regents voted to
form a task force to explore possible
solutions to childcare problems on
campus. This was a compromise to
MSAs proposal to impose an addition-
al fee for all students to support student
child care services.
The task force, under the supervision
of Provost J. Bernard Machen, is sched-
uled to report back to the regents by

ket by early in the next century.
"There's no way the United States
can afford not to be involved in (flat
panel display technology)," said Bob
Tinnell, chief technical officer of the
United States Display Consortium.
Vice President for University
Affairs Walter Harrison said the
expansion may strengthen the
University's position as a leader in
research technology and make the
Ann Arbor campus the center for dis-
play technology research.
Engler said he is eager to see the state
capitalize on the opportunity to be a
leader in the flat panel display industry.
Engler told The Michigan Daily that
his interests in promoting flat panel dis-
play technologies nationally would be
based in Michigan - and at the
"(We can) bring the nation to
Michigan. If you build it, they will

come' he said.
Engler said he looks for industrial.
partners to move their operations to
Michigan, as the state will serve the
leader in the industry. "We've got all the
action here," he said.
"We can be an anchor for significant
job growth," said DTM Executive
Director Samuel Musa.
Harrison said the University has the
potential to build a research center sim-
ilar to Silicon Valley, which sprung up
around Stanford University.
"The model here is what Stanford did
in the computing industry," Harrison
said. Harrison said the research per-
formed at DTM will allow commercial
and military industries to put the tech-
nologies to practical use. "Our initiative
isn't in making money, our initiative is
in research."
"We're talking about relocating an
entire industry to Southeast Michigan,"
Harrison said.
The new equipment will be inte-
grated with the existing DTM sys-

tems at the College of Engineering.
DTM, in cooperation with its 12 cor-
porate partners, serves as a center for
research and development within *
flat panel display manufacturing
arena, working to create high-quali-
ty, low-cost displays.
Flat panel displays are more cost-
effective than cathode ray tubes, the
predecessors of flat panel displays.
There are numerous commercial appli-
cations for display technology, includ-
ing use in automobiles, televisions, air-
plane cockpits, operating rooms
laptop computers.
The DTM project began in 1993,
with major funding coming from the
State of Michigan. The center also
engages in technical employee training,
working in cooperation with Henry
Ford, Washtenaw and Oakland commu-
nity colleges.
Harrison said the University will
likely set up partnerships with other
universities to share the flat panel
display technology used at DTM..

"The desire is there but obtaining
funds to get to those dreams is harder,"
Diggs said. "Providing those funds is
extremely important."
Some of the research priorities of the
institute include:
Improving preparation, perfor-
mance and education of African
Americans at all levels of education.
1 Expanding and enriching oppor-
tunities for African Americans to enroll
in and complete education at all levels.
Examining the relationship
between African Americans' education-

al prepartion and the quality of their
career and social achievement.
Gray has been the president and chief
executive officer of The College
Fund/UNCF since 1991. Under his
tenure, the organization has raised
about one-third of the nearly S1 billion
in the College Fund's 50-year history.
Gray has also served in the *.
Congress, and has served as chairman
of the Democratic Caucus and later as
Majority Whip. He was the first
African American to serve as chair of
the House Budget Committee, and co-
sponsored the Black College Act.
Gray is scheduled to speak at the
Maynard D. Phelps Lounge of the
University Business School tomorrow
at 8:30 a.m.
