Hass also addressed the ongoing struggle to improve envi-
ronmental policy.
"Recent environmental politics can be compared to 19th cen-
tury government policy with Native Americans," Hass said. He
described both policies as consisting of a series of retractions
and broken promises.
Once in the Arboretum, the group divided into smaller teams
to brainstorm ways to bring more visitors to the Arb. One small
group engaged in a lively discussion on the future of the Arb.
New ideas sprouted, including the placement of benches
throughout the park, the construction of an amphitheater for
live performances as well as areas with seating for classes.

idents of Mary Markley Residence Hall.
"Markley is an important audience," said Donna Wessel-
Walker, an LSA Honors Program advisor. She said programs
that give Markley residents a genuine interest in the conserva-
tion of the Arb would prevent students from partying and leav-
ing beer cans in the area.
Bob Grese, an SNRE professor, expressed the importance of
student involvement in conserving the Arb. "Holistic approach-
es such as Project Serve (a community service group) give stu-
dents a sense of ownership through involvement." Grese said.
While most of the group supported development that would
attract more visitors, others felt conserving the natural environ-
ment of the Arb was crucial.
LSA senior Lisa Delafuente said construction in the Arb
would take away from its value as a student escape.

Peterson described Baker as being
"wonderfully talented."
Baker said she has established many
working relationships and friendships
with faculty and staff at the University
over the years.
"I have really enjoyed working with
students," Baker said.
Baker said she anticipates working
again, but currently her top priority is
spending time with her family. Baker
said she is grateful that she and her hus-
band are financially secure, allowing
her to take time off.

"I do plan to work again," Bal
said. "Eventually, maybe not theai

said the broad-based commission will
consider which themes already exist in
the life sciences and attempt to build
upon them. He added that the group
will define the University's goals for
its life science programs in the "not-
so-distant future."
"The timing of this is right,"
Roush said. "There are already sub-
stantial strengths in all these areas.
... We're positioned on the verge of
tremendous programs in life science.
Michigan wants to capitalize on this
