News Briefs
Arthur Miller, U-M lauded by U.S. House

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution recently lauding the late playwright and U-M alumnus Arthur Miller and commending the University for naming a new theater in his honor.

U-M alumnus Rep. Joe Schwarz (R-Battle Creek) introduced the resolution, which passed the House earlier this month.

In the resolution, Miller is cited for his persistence in attending U-M despite being turned down for admission twice, and for his early work as a student writing plays. Co-sponsors of the resolution include alumni Harold Ford (R-Tenn.), Paul Gillmor (R-Ohio), Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio), Dale Kildee (D-Mich.), Tom Price (R-Ga.) and Fred Upton (R-Mich.).

MFile allows access to files online

Faculty and staff can use the new mFile system to store documents online and retrieve them or share files with other members of the U-M community. MFile is a Web-based system that allows faculty and staff access to their institutional file system (IFS) home directory and to group directories in IFS.

Students, faculty and staff on the Ann Arbor campus receive an IFS home directory as part of their Basic Computing Package with 1 GB of storage space. Additional space can be purchased. For more information, visit

Parking, transit changes for Memorial Day

Parking enforcement will be suspended for permits and meter fees in most U-M parking lots and structures for Memorial Day. Exceptions are the Mott Structure (M22 on East Medical Center Drive), which will maintain regular 24-hour operations, and all special-signed spaces throughout campus (gold, U-M service vehicle, loading zone and handicap), which will continue to require the appropriate permit. Patient parking at the Fletcher Structure (N13) and Parking B at the Cancer Center/Geriatric Center (M15) will be closed on Memorial Day. Parking A at the Taubman Center (M18) will remain open with normal operations. The Palmer Structure (N26) visitor parking will be closed. Regular parking enforcement will resume at 6 a.m. May 31.

U-M transit services, including the Commuter and Northwood routes as well as the U-M Health System shuttles, will not run on Memorial Day. Additionally, the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AATA) will not operate regular fixed-route bus service or A-Ride paratransit services that day. All regular bus and paratransit services will resume May 31. Passengers may take advantage of AATA's Holiday Ride shared-ride taxi service on May 30 for $3 a person. The service operates only within the city limits of Ann Arbor. To schedule a Holiday Ride trip, call (734) 528-5432.
