'U' DEARBORN CAMPUS GETS NEW ADMINISTRATOR:

The Michigan Daily-Thursday, March 13, 1980-Page 3
In dependents eligible
for MSA positions

Jenkins named

Chancellor

By JULIE ENGEBRECHT
William Jenkins, vice-chancellor for
academic affairs at the University of
Colorado at Denver, was named chan-
cellor of the University's Dearborn
campus yesterday by President Harold
Shapiro.
Jenkins will assume the post July 1.
He will replace former Dearborn chan-
llor Leonard -Goodall, who is now
esident of the University of
Nevada-Las Vegas.
"MY APPRAISAL of the Dearborn
situation is that it 'presents a great
professional opportunity for me per-

sonally and for southeastern Michigan
to develop a strong campus of the U-
M," Jenkins said. "The possibilities are
almost unlimited."
As Dearborn chancellor, Jenkins will
serve as the chief administrator of that
campus and as an executive officer of
the University. Jenkins will be respon-
sible for the budget, academic
programs, campus planning, and
working with state officials.
Jenkins, 57, has been a vice-
chancellor at the University of
Colorado since 1978. Previously, fie was
vice-president for academic affairs at

Florida International University from
1974 to 1977. He has held administrative
posts at Portland State University and
the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
and is also a professor of education.
DEARBORN CAMPUS political
science professor Bernard Klein has
served as acting chancellor since July.
More than 85 candidates were con-
sidered for the Dearborn chief ad-
ministrative post by an 11-member
committee, which included five Dear-
born faculty members, a Dearborn
student, administrators from Dear-

born, a Dearborn community member,
and an Ann Arbor administrator.
The committee interviewed a group
of finalists and submitted a list of three
names to Shapiro, who consulted with
the Regents before making a final
decision.
The Dearborn campus has ap-
proximately 6,400 students, mostly a
commuter population. It has about 175
full-time faculty members.
Jenkins received his B.S. degree
from New York University and his
master's and Ph.D. from the University
of Illinois.

By MITCH STUART
If you're a frustrated politician,
but don't think you'll make it as a
write-in candidate for President this
November, there may be hope for
you yet.
The April 8-9 Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA) general election is
rapidly approaching, and there is
opportunity for anyone and
everyone to run for a seat on MSA,
whether affilaited with a student ,
party or not.
INDEPENDENTS traditionally
have been less likely to get a seat
than members of an established
party, but last year independent
Greg Nathanson was a top vote-
getter. Several other independents
were also successful.
Independents and party members
can pick up candidate packets at
MSA offices (third floor, Unien).
The packet includes a revised copy
of the election code, a full election
calendar, a candidate's filing form,
and a letter from Ross Romeo, the
election director.
THE BOARD offered no magical
suggestions on how an independent
can make a successful bid for an
MSA seat, but recommended that
everyone follow the rules carefully.
They also discussed specific plans
for the election which, for example,
may include CB radio
communication to aid in monitoring 1

polling sites.
Last year's MSA election was
labelled a fiasco by some after the
Central Student Judiciary (CSJ)
refused to certify it. CSJ came down
hard on those in charge of the
election, concluding the sloppily-run
election offered opportunities for
fraud.
This year, however, the elections
director says he is determined "to
wage a fair and smooth election." In
his letter to potential candidates he
warns of harsh consequences if
there are improprieties.
IN HIS LETTER, Romeo
promises, "I will descend quickly
upon those that feel they have the
ability to ignore these rules. . . I will
follow the election code to the
smallest detail . . . beware that
chaos and corruption strike a very
sensitive nerve in me . . . I will
devote as much time (as) necessary
to get the job thoroughly done."
The specific steps to follow to get
your name on the 'ballot are as
follows:
" Pick up a candidate packet;
" File the candidate declaration
form by 5 p.m., Tuesday, March 25;
and
" Attend the candidates' meeting,
where candidates will draw for
ballot positions, at 7 p.m., March 25.
Before you file, speak to Romeo to
make sure you understand all the
pertinent rules.

SCRIPT - one of a vast collection of
University acronyms. Perhaps a back-
up computerized class registration
system, should CRISP ever break
down? Or possibly a school or college
with relatively few enrollees?
No. SCRIPT. - the Stanford Com-
puterized Information Profile
Technique - is a computerized infor-
mation system, used to keep track of
faculty research interests. In use at the
University since 1976, the system is
utilized by faculty, administrators, and
students.
"THE COMPUTER file consists of
over 1,700 profiles of faculty research
interests," said Elaine Zimmerman,
Division of Research Development and
Administration (DRDA) research
associate. "The main purpose of the
system is to enable DRDA to send in-
formation on funding sources to the
faculty."
According to Zimmerman, the
system is also used by researchers who
may need to consult with someone on a
project,, or on writing a funding
proposal to submit to a research spon-
sor. Students also have access to the
system, she said.
"There's certainly nothing wrong
with that (student use of SCRIPT),"
Zimmerman said. "That's what the
system is here for."
STUDENTS MAY use the system to
decide whether or not to enroll in a cer-
tain, University graduate school, or
where to do postdoctoral research, she
said. Those interested in a summer job
with a University researcher may also
'seek information from SCRIPT, she
said.
Each SCRIPT profile contains
general information including name,
department, address, professional
identification, and a statement of
research objectives. Two publicationi
are also cited for each profile, Zim-
merman said.
The profile also includes a list of up to
15 research interests from SCRIPT's
Specialties Table, a list of various areas
of research.
DRDA SOLICITS profile information
from faculty members, some of whom

choose not to respond. The material is
then edited, and put on the system, she
said.
According to Zimmerman, invasion
of privacy is not a concern with the
SCRIPT system.
"Clearly, this is a file of nouns and
not verbs," she said, explaining that
SCRIPT needs only general infor-
mation. Profile information is available
from the University faculty directory,
public research reports, resumes and
other public documents, she said.
SCRIPT, purchased by DRDA from
Stanford University, operates on the
University's Michigan Terminal
System.
"Th1e mi (lt purpose of
!te s. ter n is to entabl
DRDA to sen( in forma-
tion On f tlnding sourees to
the .ficult*. "'

It can be searched, free of charge, by
SCRIPT staff, or by outside users. The
user must have an account with the
University Computing Center in order
to get on the system, Zimmerman said.
SCRIPT contains data profiles for
researchers in a number of categories,
Zimmerman said.
"What we have done is to input data
in bunches," she said. "The first we did
was the Medical School."
The University's health science
schools, including the LSA Division of
Biological Sciences, were the next to be
put on the system, Zimmerman said.
The Engineering College, physical .
science departments within LSA, the
Psychology Department and the School
of Social Work, were then put on the
system, she said.
"The next stage was anyone else, in-
cluding Flint and Dearborn," she ad-
ded.

T .A Ann Aror Fim Copeagt8iV Presents at Aud. A: $1.50
Thursday, March 13 LADYFROM WELLES FEST
(Orson Welles, 1947) SHANGHAI 8:00-AUD. A
This is Welles' wildest film, the camera work, editing and script show an energy
and abandon not found in his more formal works. The story concerns a corrupt
lawyer, his associate and his ife, who all dupe a gullible, innocent by-
stander into a perfect frame-up for murder. A film full of humorous touches
and great scenes (the aquarium scene, the Crazy House scene, and most
famous, the Hall of Mirrors scene) held together by Welles' impressionistic
direction and relentless exploring of the themes and metaphors that have
interested him since Kane. ORSON WELLES, RITA HAYWORTH, EVERETT
SLOANE.,
(Orson Welles, 1946) THE STRANGER 9:30-AUD. A
Probably Welles' least known or appreciated film, The Stranger explores two
of his favorite themes; evil lurking beneath a calm surface-and the inevitability
of tragedy and doom. Welles is Franz Kindler, a notorious Nazi poin as a
schoof teacher in a small Connecticut town. Inspector Wilson (DADG
ROBINSON) of the War Crimes Commission is sent to the town to unmask the
fugitive. A powerful thriller.
