Cover Story, "The Devolution Revolution" by Les Seage

During this year's Faculty Convocation panel discussion, three experts debated the effects of the "devolution revolution," which is shifting the responsibility for federal programs to the states.

Nathan of the State University of New York at Albany. Nathan spoke on campus during the 1996 Faculty Convocation panel discussion. Dr. John Gnuschke, director of The U of M's Bureau of Business and Economic Research, and Dr. David Ciscel, the bureau's senior economic researcher, joined Nathan in addressing "The Role of the University in the New Urban Society."
