    which will be in September, 2004. Possible dates are September 22nd or 28th,
    depending on the speakers schedules. Speakers include former US Attorney Saul
    Green. The Miller- Canfield Law Firm will contribute funds as will the WSU
    chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. A reception will follow the presentation. Once
    the date is firm additional panel members will be identified and confirmed.
  3. The Dean updated the group on recent activities in the Libraries. The School

    She also mentioned that we are collaborating with the Detroit Public Library
    on the Detroit Reads activity in March and April, culminating during National
    Library Week. The book selected is one which directly relates to the 50th
    anniversary of the Brown vs. the Board of Education decision.

Having no further business, the meeting adjourned early. The next meeting of
the ULC is April 20, at 2pm.
