About the Conference
Students of Color as Scholars, Activists, and Truth-tellers
The 16th Annual SCOR Professional and Graduate Student Conference will be held February 9-10, 2005 at the Horace Rackham Graduate School at the University of Michigan. Historically, people of color have had the burden of being the conscious of the planet, as we have been endowed with a unique ability to ‘see’ and ‘tell’ the truth.
Our theme aims to [re]claim that gift and [re]cast our collective burden as a heroic and noble movement for peace and social justice for all, through an academic paradigm that nurtures and celebrates scholarly inquiry, activism, and truthtelling. The academy and institutions of higher learning historically represent the catalysts for change in our society. Today, we must forge our own movement through our work as researchers and practitioners that will keep secure our rights for the future generations. The conference was developed as a space with the sole purpose of providing students of color the opportunity to present their scholarly work, receive constructive feedback and learn about what colleagues of color at the University of Michigan and across the country are studying. We invite all graduate students of color to apply.
Attendance is free and open to the public. Please click the links on the upper right hand side of your screen to learn more about the conference. Below are quick links to the call for abstracts and registration/application form.

Static Electricity Problems
As the humidity falls you will see more problems with computer mice and keyboards. If your mouse or keyboard stops working, try turning off your computer and letting it sit off for a minute, then turn it back on. If your mouse or keyboard starts working fine, you were probably the victim of static electricity. To prevent this , try touching metal before you touch your keyboard or mouse...From Kari Tant

Race and an Embattled
Following up on the resolve of many faculty members to pressure Indiana University’s board to conduct an immediate review of President Adam Herbert’s leadership, members of the Bloomington Faculty Council voted in mid-November in support of a resolution to do just that. To be ratified, 800 of the 1,570 faculty members, librarians, and research scientists at Bloomington must vote online by Monday to support the resolution.
With approximately half the votes already cast, several black professors are waging a campaign against the resolution for review of Herbert, who is black. They say that if the resolution is passed, the negative attention could hurt the recruitment of minority students and harm what they call improving race relations on campus. Professors who have been pushing for the review of Herbert are angry over a variety of issues, but especially his failure to pick a chancellor for the Bloomington campus, the system’s flagship. The candidate faculty leaders want for the job is himself a minority: Kumble (Swamy) Subbaswamy, dean of Indiana’s College of Arts and Sciences.
According to the university’s 2004-2005 Fact Book, there are 176 African Americans out of a total of 4,828 full-time administrators, faculty members and lecturers at in the university system, which amounts to less than 4 percent. In Indiana, black people make up approximately 8 percent of the population
At a Bloomington Black Faculty and Staff Council press conference on Monday, Kevin Brown, a law professor, labeled the vote an “anti-Herbert movement.” He and several black faculty members have circulated letters among staff, indicating that the resolution could set a negative impact.
“One of the messages we are going to convey to them is when you are attacking the first African-American president in the 185-year history of this institution, there should have been at least a consultation and recognition and understanding of the implication that this will have on the entire African-American community of the state of Indiana,” the Indiana Daily Student quoted Brown as saying at the meeting. The paper also reported that during an opening statement, the professor said Herbert has increased fund raising and the quality of the student body and added more initiatives to better organize the university.
.Trustee Pat Shoulders said Tuesday that he does not believe that race should have been brought into this matter. “When a female chancellor was removed at Bloomington a few years ago, no one said it was because of her gender,” he said.
Susan Williams, a university spokeswoman, said that Herbert “has decided not to offer comment” on this situation.
Even though the Indiana controversy involves faculty anger over a black president’s refusal to appoint another minority man as chancellor, some professors say race and ethnicity are irrelevant. Catherine Pilachowski, a professor of astronomy who signed a letter expressing displeasure that Herbert chose not to select Subbaswamy said Tuesday, “I honestly don’t think most people see Swamy or Herbert as people of color — people are seeing them as colleagues.”
She added, “I’m not surprised that race has become an issue. I wish that the faculty’s leadership had thought about all this earlier, but I also wish faculty of color had expressed their concerns earlier, too.”
Pilachowski also expressed concern that the online vote was being held in large part over the Thanksgiving holiday when faculty members would have less time to discuss race and other issues.
But Isaac argued Tuesday that there has been enough time for discussion. “The process as a whole has been rapidly unfolding and fairly ad hoc,” he said. “There was an open faculty meeting early in the process, and many people spoke, including myself, and also including at least one of the prominent African-American critics of the process. I believe that there are many constituencies on campus and many opinions within these constituencies.
“There is always room for more discussion. And there clearly needs to be serious conversations among faculty about race,” he added. “But I do not believe anything was done inappropriately. I believe that anyone who has wished to speak or draft letters has been free to do so. And I believe that no group, whatever is claim, ought to have or seek to exert any kind of moral veto power over what is going on.”
This is not the first time that race issues have swirled around Herbert. In 1998, John Lombardi, then president of the University of Florida, came under fire for a comment he made regarding Herbert, then chancellor of Florida’s university system. Lombardi referred to Herbert as an “Oreo,” defining an Oreo as a person who is “black on the outside and white on the inside.” Lombardi, who apologized to Herbert, is now a chancellor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
