Commissions work on policy

Two University women were
awarded the Sarah Goddard Power
Award in recognition of their out-
standing scholarship and leadership
achievements in a ceremony yester-
day at the Michigan League.
Peggie Hollingsworth, an assis-
tant research scientist in the School
of Public Health, and Irene Butter,
professor of public health policy and
administration were this year's recip-
The award is named after Regent
University Affairs, the Academic
Women's Caucus, Women In-
Science and also the minority Stu-
dent Recruitment Initiative in Health
and Biological Sciences.
"I think Peggy was an outstand-
ing choice," said Andre Strong,
president of the Association of Black
Professionals and Administrators.
"She represents a role model of re-
search and community service."
Butter was an original member of
the School of Public Health Affir-
mative Actions Committee and has
served on the school's Advisory
Committee for Gender Research and
Executive and Academic Rank com-
"It's wonderful to be recognized
for the kinds of things that are very
important to me," Butter said.
Vice-provost Charles Vest, who
spoke at the ceremony, said a big
problem at the University is the lack
of representation of women in gradu-
"Our major problem in all of this
is increasing the number of the
women in the graduate programs,"
he said, referring to the problem of
"the higher the fewer."
Vest said the University is at-
tempting to combat the problem
through summer science programs
for young women and revisions on
Vest added the remedy for this
lies in a "growing awareness of the
issues in the community and faculty.
We still have a long way to go."

Sexual harassment is discrimina-
tory behavior, agreed the members of
the student's advisory commission
on harassment and discriminatory
policy last week. As discriminatory
behavior, it falls under two Univer-
sity harassment policies: the yet un-
completed student anti-harassment
policy, and the University's sexual
The debate over the definition of
rdiscrimination versus harassment is
just one issue students sitting on the
appointed advisory commission on
harassment and discriminatory policy
have faced since its formation several
The commission, one of three
advisory committees working on the
university's anti-harassment policy,
has also worried about its own pur-
pose in the administrative structure
of the University.
"We decided it's not our purpose
to come up with a policy that will
get by a court," said commission
chair Jennifer Van Valey, an LSA
sophomore. Because if the commis-
sion does that, she said, "nothing
will ever change."
The administration wants the stu-
dent commission to hurry, Van Va-
ley said. "Since the first day we've
been meeting the administration's
been saying 'hurry up and finish.All
the other groups are finished,"' Van
But developing the policy takes
time, said commission member Kofi
Boone, a natural resources sopho-
more, because the commission al-
ways has to worry about freedom of
"Every time you want to come
up with an idea you have to think
about the constitution," he said.
Faculty finish recommendation
by Donna Woodwell
Daily Faculty Reporter
A recommendation sent to Uni-
versity President James Duderstadt
regarding the student harassment and
discrimination policy last December
contains perhaps the last words of
advise from the faculty advisory
commission on the policy. However,
members of the committee refuse to
disclose the nature of those recom-
The faculty advisory committee
is one of three appointed committees
charged with advising president
Duderstadt on the development of a
new student harassment policy.
The recommendations are confi-
dential, said English Professor James
Winn, chair of the faculty commis-
sion. Winn said he regarded
"publication or discussion of its con-
tents as premature and counterpro-
"I have reason to believe that the
President will be studying our report,
and the responses he has had from
student and administration groups
with care," Winn said.
English Prof. Tom Lenaghan, a
member of the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
who has worked closely with the
committee, said "Duderstadt has the
power enact a policy" without the
input of these groups, but he expects
the president will wait until all of the
ad hoc committees have submitted
