University administrators were
pleased that Higher Education
came out at the head of the class
in Gov. John Engler's 1991-1992
state budget proposal announced
yesterday.
Engler proposed a 4 percent ed-
ucation funding increase for pro-
grams such as financial aid, ele-
mentary and secondary edu-
cation, and public universities. He
also included a 9.4 percent in-
crease for community colleges. He
proposed varying cuts for the ma-
jority of other state programs.
"We certainly are appreciative
of the governor's actions in light of
all the other pressures the state is
facing," said University Vice Pres-
ident and Chief Financial Officer
Farris Womack. The state legisla-
ture is facing an estimated $1.1
billion deficit.
President James Duderstadt, re-
sponding to the announcement in a

press release, said "we understand
that the Governor's commitment
brings with it a responsibility. We
must use the funds wisely and
well. The pressure is on - we
have to produce."
Engler Press Secretary John Tr-
uscott said the governor's propos-
als reaffirm the state administra-
tion's belief that a strong educa-
tional system is key to the state's
economy.
"Education is the future to
Michigan's competitiveness," Tr-
uscott said.
Although education is one of
the few programs proposed to re-
ceive increases, Executive Direc-
tor of University Relations Walter
Harrison said that some University
cuts could still be expected. The
University sustained a $2.47 mil-
lion state funding reduction last
December.
"Even a 4 percent increase is
still less than the expected rate of

inflation. No matter what, there
will be cuts," Harrison said.
Conservatism
is still the Univer-
sity's mode of
economic plan-
ning, Womack
said.
"Four percent
does not remove
the need for care-
Engler ful examination
of expenditures
to keep those as much in line as
we can," Womack said.
Harrison also stressed that
while the governor's proposal is
good news, Engler's recommenda-
tions still face House and Senate
approval. Even Truscott predicted
the House of Representatives re-
ception of Engler's proposal would
be "not very favorable."

Mandate raises queries on education for integration

by Henry Goldblatt
Daily Administration Reporter
Citing increased minority en-
rollment figures, University offi-
cials confidently announced last
month they had completed the first
objective of the Michigan Man-
date and were moving on to phase
two.
But the next
step goes beyond
Daily numbers. It in-
News volves educating
Analysis the University
community to
achieve inte-
gration -- a goal which President
James Duderstadt says hasn't been
realized in any other area of
American society.
By placing confidence in edu-
cation to realize cultural integra-
tion - a process which has barely
been researched - the University
has put itself in a precarious posi-
tion. If Duderstadt's plan works,
the University will become one of
the first multicultural communities.
If it fails, he risks ending up with
an atomized institution.

In 1987, University administra-
tors introduced the Michigan Man-
date to symbolize the University's
pledge to affirmative action and to
increase minority enrollment.
Director of the Baker-Mandela
Center Emery Smith, like many
minority student leaders, ques-
tioned the ability of voluntary edu-
cational programs to "mandate"
integration by changing people's
lifelong beliefs and actions. "If
people are not required-to take
classes they won't be challenged
at any level," he said.
Duderstadt conceded that while
the Mandate has been supported
by administrators and faculty, it
has not been fully embraced by
students. "I am not sure about the
student body. I am frustrated with
the student government. They view
their role as criticism and negative
rather than moving the Mandate
forward," he said.
Dudertsadt said the Mandate
must be brought to the grassroots if
the second phase is to succeed,
but admitted he has not decided

how to achieve this.
Although the administration can
implement and sponsor educa-
tional programs, they cannot dic-
tate students' everyday lives.
Many residence hall students have
commented that when they enter
the cafeteria they see many stu-
dents of one race or ethnicity sit-
ting with each other in one part of
the cafeteria.
With minority enrollment
reaching 20 percent, University
administrators believe now is the
key time to integrate the Univer-
sity community.
Referring to the research done
on the ability of education to
achieve integration, Duderstadt
said the discipline is in its infancy.
"Thus far people have dabbled
with small experiments. But, we
don't have any more time for ex-
periments. Something much more
dramatic will have to happen,"
Duderstadt said.
Student self-segregation is an
area the President hopes to target
with the Mandate.

"We cannot continue to be seg-
regated in the way we are. Segre-
gation deprives groups of opportu-
nity," Duderstadt said.
However, Smith said he didn't
believe self-segregation was nec-
essarily an obstacle to a multicul-
tural community.
"I don't see a problem with
self-segregation. People socially
define themselves in ma.;' ways.
They (the administration) always
seem to put blame on the student
of color as doing something that is
wrong." Smith said.
Director of Affirmative Action
Zaida Giraldo said she feels the
educational programs can solve
this. "Making people feel more
comfortable with each other is the
ultimate goal of all programs
and... will break down self-segre-
gation," Giraldo said.
The administration hopes to
reach all students through program-
ing beginning in students' first
year. Duderstadt is even consider-
ing removing the option for stu-
dents to select roommates so they

will encounter people of different
races and ethnicities.
Duderstadt said the programs
would be both voluntary and
mandatory.
Others claim the Mandate
framers made no effort to consult
the student body before moving to
phase two of the Mandate. The
Mandate cannot work without stu-
dent input, they say.
"It would be interesting if they
talked to the constituencies,"-
Smith said. "Where is input from
African Americans, Latinos, and
Native Americans? How about the
community it is supposed to be
helping?"
Smith said he believes the Uni-
versity is lagging behind peer insti-
tutions in this respect. Smith
pointed to other major universities
which have been more effective
than Michigan in integrating mi-
norities such as Stanford, which
has a non-western course require-
ment, and the University of
Toronto, which published a report
on how to increase visibility of

minorities on campus.
University administrators dis-
agree with this assessment. Duder-
stadt argued the University is a
front-runner in the integration of
minorities into a campus-wide
community.
Duderstadt has employed his
Presidential initiative fund - a
$100,000 discretionary stipend -
to aid educational proposals to en-
courage integration. Although the
funding- will come from the Uni-
versity, the impetus for phase two
programs will come from the stu-
dents, staff, and faculty.
Administrators point to figures
they claim demonstrate the suc-
cess of phase one in increasing
minority student numbers. How-
ever, although the number of
African American students has in-
creased from the low point in the
mid-eighties, these numbers are
still below those of 1975.
In the past year, the percentage

Americans, Native Americans, and

Panel
discusses
parental

In a series of activities planned

Circuit Court in conjunction with
Planned Parenthood to ask the

Job security is not one of Bob
Mancini's pressing worries these
days. In fact, rumor has it that
they're erecting a monument in
Big Rapids to honor the savior of
Ferris State hockey.
When Mancini left his job as
assistant coach at Ferris State two
years ago to become a head scout
for the NHL's Quebec Nordiques,
he left a floundering college pro-
gram - a program that hasn't fin-
ished above .500 in a decade and a
program that finished a pitiful 6-
20-6 last year in the CCHA.
But luckily for the Bulldogs, he
didn't stay away for long. Mancini
quickly made the jump back to
college hockey, taking over the
reigns as the head coach at Ferris
this season. And it seems that his
return might explain why Michigan
will face off against his Bulldogs
tonight at 8:10 in semifinal action
of the CCHA Championships at
+ In ni Arena.

"But it's just another rink, and
they make the ice the same way.
That's what I told my kids. We
don't worry about a lot of things.
We can only control the way we
play. That's the way we've done it
all season."
"They're a very tough team
with a good coach," Michigan
coach Red Berenson said. "They
gave us some trouble up here and
I'm sure that we're going to have
to play our best hockey to win."
Last weekend, Ferris swept
Bowling Green, 5-3 and 3-2 in
overtime, to advance to the CCHA
Final Four. Left wing Rod Taylor,
second in the nation with 41 goals
this season, provided the decisive
two goals Friday - both off assists
from senior captain John dePourcq,
who has 47 assists and fills the
playmaker role well for Mancini.
In goal, Ferris starts either
Marc Felicio (10-4-4) or first team
all-CCHA rookie Pat Mazzoli (13-
7-1). They combined to make 91
saves in Ferris' first round sweep.
