At a meeting of some of the AEJMC leadership this past weekend, in Columbia,
SC at AEJMC headquarters, I brought up the need for us to do this.  We have
drafted a resolution that will be sent through the proper channels.  If you
don't want duplication of efforts, wait for me to get it officially and I
will share it with you.  It should be ready for your review by the end of
next week.

Subject: Re: Supporting Univ. of Michigan's Affirmative Action Policy

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to thank Jannette Dates, Bill Israel,
Paula Poindexter, Venise Berry, and Ken Campbell for their
prompt responses to this proposal.
All of them expressed agreement that AEJ needs to be on record
regarding this issue. Prof. Campbell suggested that it's
more appropriate that the Commission on the Status of
Minorities take the lead on this and I concur.
We will, therefore, ask our colleagues at the CSM to draft
a resolution to be sent to the Executive Board of AEJMC.
Fortunately, all top officers of CSM are members of MAC and
so by this e-mail we ask them to take the lead.
