UW-Madison doctors photo to  stress diversity Picture of minority student digitally  inserted into shot on application booklet By Sharif Durhams of the Journal Sentinel staff    Last  Updated: Sept. 20, 2000 In an effort to promote the University of  Wisconsin-Madison as a racially diverse  campus, university officials digitally inserted a  black student's face into a photograph of white  Badger football fans that was used on the cover  of their new undergraduate application. University officials are now considering  reprinting covers for some of the 110,000  brochures, which had been completely revamped  for the first time in several years. Between  50,000 and 55,000 of the booklets have already  been mailed to high schools and to individual  students who are considering applying to UW- Madison. "We were really up against a wall when we  made the decision," said Albert Friedman,  director of publications at UW-Madison, who  said it is his job to ensure university publications  have integrity and reflect certain values. "We probably tried too hard, and we did the  wrong thing." The decision to use the digitally altered photo  came several weeks ago, while UW officials  were deciding what photo to use on the cover of  the application. Admissions Director Robert  UWMadison doctored pix.doc Doctored photos Photo/UW-Madison news & public affairs The original photo shows Badger football fans
