Students tour foreign countries
By MARGARET HELTON .
Next time you are trudging along
tate Street on your way to class, pic-
re yourself strolling down the tree-
lined Champs Elysees in Paris instead.
Or, imagine living in a castle on the -
Inn River in Germany while studying
Medieval manuscripts, like Tom Moga
did last summer. When he wasn't
studying, Moga, who is working. on a
Masters degree in English, said, "I
spent much of my time traveling t F
Switzerland and Austria, more or less
on my own.
CURRENTLY THERE are about 45
University studentsstudying in France
and Germany. Others are living and at-
tending classeg in less typical nations
such as Guaemala and Haiti, accor-
ding to Utink Peiter, Director of the
LSA StJ4y Abroad Office. At any given
t some '200-300 University un-
' dergraduates are earning college credit
in foreign countries, he added.
Study abroad programs - for a
Summer term, or year - are available
rough the LSA Office for Study
Abroad, other U.S. and foreign in-
stitutions, and various private agen-
Oies. Applications for most study
abroad programs for this summer or
next fall are due between now and
Various numbers of credits can be
earned depending on the program. In-
formation about specific programs is
available at the LSA office or the Inter-
national Center in the Michigan Union.
Includingt tuition, room and board,
and traveling expenses, costs for a one-
year foreign study program typically
range from $6,500 to $10,000, according
to Peiter. The difference is due to in-
dividual lifestyles, he added.
"THERE ARE two major reasons for
people to study abroad," said Peiter.
"The first reason involves people that
cannot think of anything else to do and
are finding the Ann Arbor situation in-
tolerable. They are either bored or
unhappy so they go abroad.
"However, the majority go abroad
because they see a prime opportunity to
expand their knowledge of the world
and, if they are really smart, of them-
selves. Study abroad provides a greater
view of the world, the United States,
and your own self."
Peiter is quick to point out that, con-
trart to popular belief, it is not
necessary to be a foreign language
student in order to go abroad.
"ALTHOUGH virtually everyone
that studies abroad has had exposure to
a language, I do not think it is true that
all, or even most, are majors in the
language," Peiter explained. "Of the
students that are abroad this year, not
more than half are majoring in
language. Two-thirds are double
majors, majoring in the language and
another subject. That other subject
may have nothing to do with the
Mary Wileden, coordinator of th
Overseas Opportunities Office in the In-
ternational Center, emphasized that
"most students have the desire to get
another cultural experience. They don't
want to spend all of their time in a
library. They want to meet people and
travel. They don't want a U of M type
study program which leaves little room
for anything else."
Both Wileden and Peiter pointed out
that study abroad is not always as
romantic as it first appears. There is a
great deal of reality involved, they said.
Denise McClumpha, an LSA senior
who studied in Rome last year, lived in
a former convent that was attached to
an old church. McClumpha said living
there was just like living in a dormitory
at the University.
"IT CAN BE a painful and hard ex-
perience," Peiter warned. "For exam-
ple, trying to grapple with personal
problems in a foreign country with a
foreign language. On the other hand,
the joy of achievement is greater."
Students currently receiving finan-
cial aid can often apply it to foreign
study, if they go through a University-
sponsored program, according to
Peiter. Frequently, he added, financial
aid will be increased, to reflect the
higher expenses involved in studying in
another country. '

Tenure proposal prohibits rehiring faculty
By JAY McCORMICK
For LSA faculty members who have
&een denied tenure, other LSA lecturing
obs may be harder to come by if a
recently-submitted proposal by the LSA
Executive Committee becomes an of-
The proposal is currently in front of
Alfred Sussman, acting vice-president
for academic affairs.
ACCORDING TO LSA Dean Billy
rye, people who have been denied
tenure in one LSA department will not
be able to be hired as lecturers by other
departments unless they are excep-
tionally well qualified, if the proposal
now being worked on by Sussman and
the Executive Committee is put into ef-
Frye said the college is trying to
avoid duplication of courses and the
damaged academic reputations which
arise when one department hires
someone refused tenure in another
department. He said he felt department
hiring recommendations involving such
individuals needed more than just an
automatic approval from the Executive
Marc Breakstone, Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA) academic affairs
coordinator, disagreed with the logic
behind the proposal. "The criteria for
the two different jobs are different," he
said. While Breakstone claimed
research is an integral part of the
tenure decision, he said research has
little to do with the teaching quality that
a lecturer should possess.
FRYE SAID the side effects of
current hiring practices prompted the
Executive Committee to make the
proposal. Repeated or overlapping
courses and declining academic
reputations result from hiring the same
people the college recently dismissed,
The proposed rule might have in-
fluenced a case such as that of Joel
Samoff, who was denied tenure in a
controversial decision by the Political
Science Department and was rehired
by the Center for Afro-American and
African Studies as a lecturer. Frye said
the new rule also might have affected
the hiring practices of the Residential
College over the past several years.
Residential College Director John
Morsereau declined to comment on the
proposal. Ali Mazrui, director of the
Center for Afro-American and African
Studies, could not be reached for com-
