Regents approve new head
for U-M Dearborn campus

by Jennifer Silverberg
Daily Administration Reporter
James Renick, a George Mason
University executive officer, will
assume the post of U-M Dearborn
chancellor Jan. 1. The U-M Board
of Regents unanimously selected
him for the position at its meeting
yesterday.
U-M President James
Duderstadt chose Renick after a
search committee narrowed a 104-
person candidate pool to two
finalists.
"Dr. Renick is a young, bright
and energetic leader who will pro-
vide vision for U-M Dearborn and
continue the momentum of its
progress under Chancellor Blenda
Wilson," Duderstadt said.
Bernard Klein succeeded Wilson
as interim chancellor Sept.l, after

she left the university for a presi-
dential post at California State
University, Northridge.
Klein said he is pleased with the
selection of Renick.
"I've never seen as much una-
nimity and enthusiasm with a
search. I'm delighted to turn over
the reigns to a candidate of such
caliber," Klein said.
Renick, who will also serve as
professor of education and public
administration at U-M Dearborn,
received his Ph.D. in government
and public administration from
Florida State University in 1980.
He is a member of the Board of
Directors of the American
Association for Higher Education
and senior program coordinator of
the United Negro College Fund's
National Leadership and

Organizational Development
Program.
Charlotte Otto, chair of the U-M
Dearborn search committee that in-
terviewed candidates for the chan-
cellor position, said the campus is
pleased with the regents' decision.
"We are delighted with the
choice of Dr. Renick," Otto said.
"He was one of the most highly-
regarded candidates we brought in."
Regent Paul Brown (D-
Petoskey) said he was pleased with
the choice of Renick.
"It's terribly important to have a
first-rate person in the job of chan-
cellor and it seems to me such a
person was brought forth," he said.
But some regents expressed dis-
approval of the candidate search
procedure.
"My complaint is not with the

Renick
man (chosen), my complaint is with
the process," said Regent Deane
Baker (R-Ann Arbor). "The process,
is greatly injured (by the Open
Meetings Act) in that we had no
part whatsoever in the selection."
The Open Meetings Act states
that all meetings with candidates
for university positions must be,
public.

Board approves campus renovation plans

Students may not be calling the
Undergraduate Library "ugly"
much longer.
The U-M Board of Regents ap-
proved a number of campus renova-
tion projects at its meeting yes-
terday - including plans to im-
prove the UGLi's facade. The plans
include:
A $157,500,000 sum for ren-
ovation and construction projects
on the Ann Arbor main campus as
part of the U-M's 1993-94 capital

outlay request to the state
government.
C.C. Little, West Engineering,
the Frieze Building and Angell Hall
will be subject to renovations under
these state allocations.
An Engineering Center
Building for the College of
Engineering on North Campus
which will provide space for under-
graduate student records and coun-
seling and financial aid offices and
also relocate engineering placement
and the College's administrative
offices.

A design for a $6,850,000 ad-
dition to the Undergraduate Library
Building, as well as $4 million of
proposed renovations to improve
the current building was also
approved yesterday.
"The term, 'UGLi' has applied
as a shortened term of the under-
graduate library and a descriptive
term (as well) so we've told the ar-
chitects we'll give them a chance to
correct past errors," said U-M
planner Fred Mayer.
The board also passed a motion
to buy and renovate the Wolverine

Tower - located on the corner of
State Street and Eisenhower
Parkway - for administrative,
academic and support uses. Regent
Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor) and
Regent Veronica Smith (R-Grosse
Ile) opposed the purchase.
"It's not a very attractive build-
ing," Smith said.
"I'm not enthusiastic about the
acquisition of the building," Baker
added. "There's a big difference in
buying a building built for commu-
nity purposes and a building for
university purposes."

Public state university students to discuss higher education funding

-4

by Hope Calati
and Shelley Morrison
Daily Staff Reporters
This weekend, Michigan public
university students will converge on
the U-M to brainstorm ways to in-
fluence the state legislature about
higher education issues.
The conference - sponsored by
the Michigan Collegiate Coalition
(MCC), a group that lobbies the state
legislature on education-related is-
sues - seeks to give students a

voice in policy-making, said MCC
Legislative Director Alaina
Campbell.
The current platform highlights
accessibility, financial aid, student
rights and empowerment. Campbell
said she expects the new platform to
be similar.
Roger DeRoo, U-M representa-
tive to the MCC conference, said al-
though the MCC addresses issues
that affect all state universities, the
U-M delegation may introduce pro-

posals timely for the university.
The delegation is interested in
addressing codes of non-academic
conduct and proposed changes in the
Open Meetings Act which would
allow university presidents to be
chosen in a closed meeting of
regents, faculty and students.
Representatives from other
Michigan universities expressed
concern over the amount of attention
U-M and other large public universi-
ties receive.

"We are not getting the same in-
creases in funding as other universi-
ties," said Todd Luxton, MCC
Campus Coordinator at Western
Michigan University. "We deserve
more than we've been getting."
College students statewide de-
cided to pool their lobbying re-
sources and form MCC in 1987 after
a rash of major tuition increases.
"Students decided if they were
really going to be effective in having
a voice at the state level than they'd

have to have a greater presence in
Lansing," Campbell said.
Rod Taylor, vice president of as-
sociated students at Ferris State
University, said, "I think MCC is a
positive experience. They're our
voice - plain and simple."
Student representatives said that
tuition increases are still a major
concern.
"We need a lot of work on finan-
cial aid up here," said Don King,
student senate president at Lake

Superior State University.
DeRoo said, "Keeping the money
flowing from the state to the unive-
sities keeps the pressure oft
(tuition)."
Campus leaders said that tuition
is not their only concern.
"We want to push some reforms
on racial inequality," said Luxton.
The platform will be voted o;
Sunday. The U-M has nine voteg.
The number of votes is proportional
to student enrollment.

WASHINGTON (AP) -
President-elect Clinton paid a
whirlwind visit to Capitol Hill yes-
terday, pledging an open door to
Democrats and Republicans alike
and to "meet them halfway" on an
early agenda of economic revival
and health-care reform.
The Arkansas governor came to
Capitol Hill carrying a promise of
bipartisan cooperation and left
predicting lawmakers would
reciprocate.
"We have to pursue a different
course of growing this economy,
creating more jobs, raising incomes
and having a disciplined plan to re-
duce the deficit," Clinton said. "I
think if we work hard at it, we can
have bipartisan cooperation."
"This will be an era of unprece-

dented communication and coopera-
tion between the Congress and the
president," said House Majority
Leader Richard Gephardt of
Missouri.
Clinton said he hoped to encour-
age quick passage of his economic
stimulus package by getting it to
Congress by the time he takes office
in January so that "any wrinkles and
problems" could be quickly
addressed.
Clinton offered no specifics to
suggest he had reached agreement
on a framework for an economic or
health-care package and congres-
sional leaders said no deals were
struck or timetables set.
Clinton also met with Gen. Colin
Powell, chairperson of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, for a wide-ranging

briefing on military,
security and foreign policyi

Powell reiterated his opposition
to lifting the ban on homosexuals In
the military, but said he would help
implement the change if Clinton
kept his promise to reverse the ban.
In other news, Dorothy Bush a
senator's wife who taught her sen
George with "generous measures 4
both love and discipline" and livid
to see him elected to the While
House, died yesterday, the White
House said. She was 91.
Spokesperson Marlin Fitzwater
said Mrs. Bush, who had sufferedra
stroke, died shortly after 5 p.m.4at
the family home in Greenwich,
Conn.
