ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGES COULD AMOUNT TO $70,000 ANNUAL LY

New programs will result

from U-Flint savings

By MAURA CARRY
Savings resulting from an ad-
inistrative reorganization at the
niversity's Flint Campus will be used
to finance new academic programs
there, according to William Vasse, the
University's acting provost and Vice-
Chancellor of Academic Affairs in
Flint.
The changes, approved by the Regen-
ts early this week, could save more
than $70,000 annually, according to
University officials. Vasse explained
that a good portion of the money, but
not all of it, would go toward the
development of these programs.
The University's Flint Chancellor Con-
ny Nelson called the new system a
major step in showing the University's
"serious intention to give its highest
priority to new academic develop-
ment."
VASSE SAID several new programs
are being looked into now. "The most
important new program right now is a

graduate program in management," he
said.
The program has been approved by
the U-Flint graduate board, and if it is
approved by the Flint Faculty Assem-
bly it will be presented to the Regents at
their October meeting.
Vasse said the Flint Campus is
developing extensively its Computer
Science program and researching the
needs of the departments of Social
Work and Health Care. Faculty will be
added to the schools of Nursing and
Natural Science, along with other
developments in those schools, Vasse
said.
"WE MUST HAVE greater program
diversity to attract and retain more
students," Nelson said. "This much-
needed development has to happen now
despite dwindling resources from the
state. Every penny we can find must
feed this vital program growth."
The financial scene looks grim
around the state, although public

higher education institutions are sup-
posedly receiving a 2.5 per cent in-
crease in appropriations from the state
this year. The state legislature has not
passed this measure yet, however, and
even if it does pass, the state may later
retract the money, Vasse said. "Given
the current state of the economy, I don't
think anyone will count on a lot of
money around to spend this year," he
said.
The changes consist mainly of shif-
ting administrative positions and
responsibilities, with some eliminated
altogether. Under the old system, two
deans, a director, and a provost were U-
Flint's chief officers, reporting directly
to the chancellor.
This year, the area headed by the
dean for administration has been
eliminated. Arnold Melnick, who was
dean for administration for four years,
has accepted an appointment for one
year as a Special Assistant to the Chan-
cellor. The senior administrative post
of Assistant to the Chancellor will be

reclassified down to a part time
assistant.
THE REMAINING dean, director,
and provost will now all be Vice Chan-
cellors under the new administration.
Former Dean for Student Services
Marvin Roberson is now the Vice Chan-
cellor for University Services. Plant
services, campus safety, and auxiliary
services are included in his new
responsibilities.
The Director for Institutional Finan-
ce and Research, James Murdock, has
become the Vice Chancellor for Budget
and Finance. In addition to his previous
role, Murdock will now also be respon-
sible for personnel, computing, and
purchasing.
The office of provost, the chief
academic officer in the old ad-
ministration, is now called Porvost and
Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
This position is being filled by Vasse,
former acting Chancellor of the Flint
Campus, until a full-time officer is ap-
pointed.

Vasse said that the search for a new
provost will begin soon, and that Nelson
and a committee of officials would be
responsible for making a recom-
medation to the Regents. "I'd expect
the appointment to be made by early
spring," Vasse said.
SEVERAL OTHER appointments
were recommended last week by the
Regents as a result of the position shif-
ts. John McCray, Assistant Dean for
Student Services since 1973, has been
appointed Dean for Student Services.

This is a direct result of former dean
Roberson's appointment to the new
position of Vice-Chancellor for Univer-
sity Services.
Mary Cox was appointed Associate
Dean for Curriculum and Program
Development' for the College of Arts
and Sciences. This is a new position at
U-Flint, created in response to a desire'
by the University to increase academic
offerings in various programs, and will
rotate on a three year cycle.

prompted officials to finalize plans for
such a court in Ann Arbor, according to
a clerk in the Detroit court.

Federal Building on Fifth Avenue, will
hopefully be operating by September,
,1981. The U.S. district court will be the
fifth federal district court in the state.
ANN ARBOR was favored for. the
new court because of its growing
population, according to John Mayor,
who clerks in the Detroit district court.
-"The Detroit court is virtually
busting at the seams," said Mayor, em-
piasizing that this was the major
rgason the plans for a new court were
completed so quickly.
According to Mayor, U.S. District
Court Judge Charles Joiner, who
currently sits in Detroit, has already
agreed to sit in the Ann Arbor court.
Joiner was offered the position first
because of seniority, Mayor said.
THE eANN ARBOl court will handle
the types of cases normally considered
by U.S. district court.' The court
will be responsible for cases
in Jackson, Lenawee, Monroe, and
Washtenaw counties. The court will be
exempted from handling a portion of
the criminal cases filed by prisoners of
Jackson prison, due to the ever-growing
