A large banner was hung on
the east side of a smokestack
in the University of Michigan’s
Central Power Plant Wednesday
morning,
reading
“Climate
strike walkout 3/15” was hung
on the east side of a smokestack
in the University of Michigan’s
Central Power Plant. It is
currently
unknown
which
group is responsible for making
and displaying the sign. The
act was not sponsored by the
Washtenaw
County
Climate
Strike.
The banner is now one
of the many signs around
campus
in
support
of
the
Washtenaw
County
Climate

Strike. On Friday, hundreds of
environmental activists will be
meeting on the Diag to join the
Washtenaw
County
Climate
Strike to make a statement on the
pressing issue of climate change.
Students are being urged to
walk out of class at 11:11am for
the 12:00pm event as a reference
to the Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change’s statement
that was made last October. It
warns there are 12 years left to
successfully mitigate the worst
effects of climate change. For
those who are not able to leave
class, they are asked to wear
green to show their support.

According to the College
of
Engineering,
many
Engineering students do not
exceed the standard limit of
printing pages allocated to
each student in the school
per term. As a result, the
College of Engineering will be
eliminating their supplemental
allocation for students after
the 2019-2020 school year.
Dan
Maletta,
executive
director
of
information
technology for the College of
Engineering,
explained
the
reasoning behind the phasing-
out of this accommodation.

“We have generally seen a
decline in (printing) demand,”
Maletta wrote in an email. “We
consistently see that almost
two thirds of our students
never exceed the ITS printing
allocations, and as a result we
are phasing out engineering’s
supplemental allocation.”
Tanner
Robison,
an
Engineering PhD candidate,
explained that he often has
large homework assignments
and labs to print out, but doesn’t
see the need for Engineering
students to receive greater
printing allocations compared
to students in other colleges.
“I don’t get the feeling
that
Engineering
students

necessarily
print
more,”
Robinson said. “I mean, I have
to print off my homework and
stuff periodically and some of
them are pretty extensive. But
that doesn’t mean that people
who are not in the engineering
program don’t have to print off
similar things.”
According to the College
of
Engineering,
many
Engineering
students
do
not utilize the supplemental
allocation they are given each
term. In fact, the Michigan
CAEN
(Computer-Aided
Engineering
Network)
website states that over half
of students in Engineering
don’t exceed the standard

printing allocation available
to all students. As a result, the
College of Engineering will be
eliminating their supplemental
allocation for students after
the 2019-2020 school year, an
announcement they made on
September 8, 2017. In 2016,
Engineering students received
an additional $40 for printing,
but it was decreased by $10
the next school year. This
four-year process of cutting
down the allocation is helping
to phase out the allocation
altogether.

U.S. Reps. Debbie Dingell,
D-Mich.,
and
Fred
Upton,
R-Mich., have written a letter
to Immigration and Customs
Enforcement
asking
to
halt
the scheduled deportation of
journalist Emilio Gutiérrez Soto,
a Knight-Wallace Fellow at the
University of Michigan.
Gutiérrez
joined
2018-19
Knight Wallace Fellowship class,
studying safety and freedom of
journalists. The fellowship is an
eight-month program designed
for mid-career journalists to help
advance their skills and address
challenges in the industry.
Gutiérrez
was
denied
asylum Feb. 28 and scheduled
to be deported back to Mexico.
Gutiérrez and his son Oscar
sought asylum in the United
States in 2008 after receiving
death threats for his reporting
for news outlet El Diario Del
Noroeste on crimes committed
by the Mexican military in
Chihuahua, Mexico.

Dr. Alain Mukwege, a research
associate at University of Michigan
School of Nursing, spoke about
human rights advocacy and sexual
violence against women from a
global health perspective in front
of about 40 students in Weiser
Hall on Wednesday night. The
event was hosted by The Program
in International and Comparative
Studies and the Donia Human
Rights Center.
Mukwege is an activist and
member of the advisory board
of the Panzi Foundation USA,
a non-profit organization that
works to combat sexual violence
against women by providing care
to victims and advocating for
solutions to human rights issues in
the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Robert Franzese, director of
the Program in International and
Comparative Studies, explained
to
the
department
invited
Mukwege to speak because they
felt the lecture would be a great
opportunity for students to learn
more about the cause.
