yearly - adding on top of that
would be genuinely inefficient," he
said. "It raises questions of what
tenure means.... If the (University)
changed it's policy, (it) would be-
come less attractive to faculty as
well as students."
The 1991 state legislation was
implemented to counteract a provi-
sion of the federal Age
Discrimination Act.
The federal Age Discrimination
Act protects against the forced re-
tirement of all professionals at any
age. However, a provision excludes
police officers, firefighters, and
tenured professors from protection
under the law.

lower half of the state yesterday, the
National Weather Service issued a
snow and blowing snow advisory.
The blizzard also caused local po-
lice to issue a Travelers' Advisory.
Sgt. Pam Wyess of the Ann
Arbor Police Department said that
while more accidents occurred yes-
terday than on an average day, the
numbers were not "outrageous."
The University Department of
Public Safety did not receive any
unusual reports yesterday.
Wyess attributed the relatively
small number of problems to careful
motorists.

tion used the word mutliculturalism.
"It is a very powerful, positive word
which can build bridges. But it has
come to mean io more than diver-
sity has."
Edwards submitted her resigna-
tion to Maureen IIartlord, vice
president for Student Affairs, eLfec-
tive Jan. 31. At this time, she will
return to her private counseling
practice and hopes to be a part of the
process to find her replacement.
"To me, it would be essential to
find someone who is a strong ac-
tivist and wouldn't be co-opted by
the system," Edwards said.
Edwards, along with Toy, cited
differences with the administration
in recent years for the problems
lMPO is experiencing.

"We really had to cut back on our
programs - such as the welcome
back reception and the celebration
around National Coming Out Day
- because there was no funding,"
Toy said.
In her letter of resignation,
Ed wards described I.GM PU's diffi-
culties due to a budget cut of 2.75
percent and the hiring freeze on two
half-time positions and work study
students.
She also expressed her concern
over rumors saying either she or Toy
could be fired at any time.
"It takes a lot of energy to pro-
grun and I wasn't going to spin my
wheels planning events if we
weren't going to be here," she said.
"We have tried to piece things
together."
Moreover, Edwards was not
happy with the recent changes made

to LGMPO . Along with the fight to
have its name placed on the wall
outside the office, I(GMPO was re-
cently notified it would not he doing
counseling or therapy - its duties
would be assigned to ('ounselilu,
Services.

new philosophy in the current ad-
ministration is that any clinician can
work with any student, a viewpoint.
she does not agree with.
"My clients' reaction was anger
and anxiety," Edwards said. "II am
the only counselor here for lesbian
women.
"People within their own cu1-
tures, races, and ethnicities often do
better with people in their own
group," said Edwards, who has a
masters in psychology from the
Center for IIumanistic Studies and is
a limited license psychologist in the

state of Michigan.
Prgnmaically, the best thing
Counseling Services are goinT to be
able to do is crisis intervention and
references," Edwards said. "When'
You are dealing with sexual orienta-

.Toy agreed with Edwvards, hut
saud he felt the shake-up in Student
Affairs during the past year was 1(f
be expected.
"When a ma jor administrator
leaves, things are likely to tall into
limbo until the new administration
Zgets itself into place and implements*
its own programs," Toy said.
Carter said changes will not take
place until the next school year at
the earliest. "We have not fixed our-
selves into anything," he said.

counseling for women, and - until
the past semester - organizing pro-
grams for the gay, lesbian and bi-
sexual communities.
With tears in her eyes, Edwards
said she would remain in Ann Arbor
after her departure and work in her
private counseling practice.
"I love working with the lesbian
and gay male community - a A I'll
continue to do that. It just wo ' he
here," she said.
LGMPO Co-coordinator Jim Toy
said he was not surprised by
Edward's decision to leave.
"It amazed me, in fact, that given
the pressure she was feeling she was
able to endure," he said. "I hope she
takes care of herself and things will
go well for her. I think she's aware
of the drawbacks at working at a
complex organization like this one is
- the tradeoffs of all that."
Jason Hackner, a junior in the
School of Music, added that, while
people do not always agree with the
decisions Edwards has made, he re-
spects her as an outstanding role
model who has not wavered in the
face of adversity.
"I'm very sorry to see her go be-
cause I do think she and Jim (Toy)
have always done what they thought

"But there were erosions in the
whole issue of reproductive rights,
setbacks for women as lesbians in
Colorado, and the disenfranchised
are still disenfranchised."
Rivers agreed. She said she be-
lieves the progress women believed
they were making in 1992 is illusory.
"When push came to shove, wom-
en's rights and opportunities were
threatened (even if) it should be in
the interests of both genders to hold
and protect these issues," she said.
Rivers stressed the necessity of
paying attention to issues important
to women.
"In the 1992 election, women
were the right people to do it," she
said. "Child care, parental leave -
working mothers have known about
their importance for years."
Many women also expressed
hope that President-elect Bill Clinton
and his administration will play a
positive rolein supporting women's
issues.

Edwards HEATHER LOWMAN/Daity
Edwards summed up the reaction
she expects from the University.
"Probably the lesbian and gay
community will be very distressed. I
can imagine there will be a few peo-
ple who won't be sorry," she said.
"If I can't walk the walk ... I
can't do it anymore."

was right," he said. "They have very
strong convictions."
RC junior Brian Spolarich said he"
respects Edward's decision, but said
he fears her timing will hurt
LGMPO.

"It is important to have a leader
in office truly committed to those
objectives," Brater said. "It is also a
big difference for women to have a
pro-choice president."
Supporting Clinton, Residential
College sophomore Sukie Collins
said President George Bush "kept
saying he would do things to help
women. Clinton has actual
legislation."
Brater said she thinks having
more women in powerful elected
offices will play an essential part in
breaking barriers found in the
workplace.
"There is a constant need to cre-
ate equality. Women must be given
equal pay and equal respect. But this
is not something that changes
overnight," Brater said. "It is a long,
term process to institutionalize
changes."
LSA sophomore Karen Fashoway
said she thinks the "Year of the
Woman" will arrive when there is
equality "not only forthose in
power, but for the every day
woman."
