Faculty poll

rejects unionization

The faculty Senate Assembly yester-
day strongly criticized a proposed
University policy on campus hazings as
too vague and effectively asked that it
be sent back to square one in its two-
year-long struggle for approval.
The Assembly overwhelmingly voted
to approve only the first sentence of the
policy, which states very generally that
the University condemns campus
hazings, and most members wanted the
rest to be rewritten.
THE PROPOSED policy has been
passed from committee to committee in
a long path to final approval. It has won
general approval from those faculty
and student groups until it came before
the Assembly yesterday. All of these
° committees, including the Senate
Assembly, serve only an advisory role
and their votes are non-binding.
Assembly members criticized the
polity yesterday for what they said was
its lack of a clear method of punishing
students or student groups who par-
ticipate in hazings, and for vagueness
in the definition of what constitptes

definitions," said Herbert Hildebrandt,

business, and a member of the Assem-
bly. "The document was kind of loose
and rambling." Hildebrandt said he

But survey shows faculty
desire for voice in salaries

University faculty are opposed to
unionization and want an increased
voice in determining salaries, accor-
ding to this year's Committee on the
Economic Status of the Faculty survey.
CESF Chairman Ronald Teigan
released the survey results to yester-
day's Senate Assembly meeting, and
said that of the 2,740 questionnaires
sent to faculty members, only 905, or
about 33 percent, were returned.
"THERE WAS a clear indication of
unhappiness with last year's (salary)
programs," Teigen told the assembly.
He said one, questionnaire was sent
back unanswered with a note attached
saying that the professor was leaving it
unanswered to protest his salary.
According to Teigen, the survey also
categorized respondents by school or
college, department, rank, salary in-
crease for 1981-82, and years since the
respondent had earned his or her
highest degree.
"There were distinct differences
among schools," said Teigen. He said
the business schoolfor example, "was

always on one extreme, and social work
on the other"-business being more
content with salary programs and
social work being more unhappy with
last year's program.
ALTHOUGH THE statistics were

compiled for the objective portion of the
questionnaire, Teigen said some of the
responses contained "personal com-
Iments (which) attack certain people ...
and I'm not sure we want to publish
In a letter sent out with the question-
naires, Teigen said "The present finan-
cial situation facing The University of
Michigan, especially as it has affected
faculty compensation, has elicited a
sharp increase in expressions of faculty
concern." He said he received letters
from individual faculty members and
petitions from two LSA departments

Senate Assembly OKs staff redefinition

The faculty Senate Assembly voted unanimously
yesterday to accept a proposal which, if approved
by the University Executive Officers and the
Regents, will significantly alter current bylaws
that define the role of University faculty.
According to Edward Hayes, assistant director
of personel, the proposed changes come in respon-
se to complaints from various schools and colleges
that present definitions are inadequate for deter-
mining tenure status.
"OVER THE PAST several years, a number of
deans, directors, and departmental chairpersons
have suggested certain changes in the definitions
of instructional staff," the proposal states. "The

recommended changes would clarify the tenure
and non-tenure status of individuals appointed to
more than one unit within the University, allow
supplemental appointments for current non-
teaching staff, and also would provide more
flexibility in appointing individuals to 'temporary'
teaching roles."
The proposed changes would effect the
definition of "adjunct," "clinical," and
"visiting," instructional staff members.
According to the draft proposal, the current
definitions of "adjunct" professors include only
persons whose primary employment respon-
sibilities lie outside the University. The amen-

dment would expand current definitions to include
"persons whose primary responsibilities lie out-
side the University or in another capacity within
the University," and states that they may be ap-
pointed on a part-time basis as "adjunct
professor, associate professor, assistant
professor, instructor, or lecturer."
A SIMILAR expanded definition will apply to
"clinical" appointments.
The draft maintains that since these staff mem-
bes are untenured - regardless of status or
seniority - the college appointing the would not
assume tenure responsibilities or obligations.
The proposal's third point addreses the descrip-
tiona of ""visiting" professors, which according tos

the draft, are "identified primarily with another
institution of higher learning and participate in
the teaching function."
A broader definition would also include in-
dividuals "whose employment responsibilities
with the University will be explicitly temporary
(normally not exceeding twelve months)."
This would permit appointments, on a tem-
porary basis, of non-enrolled graduate students
and recent graduates awaiting regular apoin-
tment. It would provide units "with the oppor-
tunity to temporarily supplement the instructional
program through the use of 'temporary' types of
