"The hospital and the clinical faculty
must be aligned in strategy and mission
and that can only happen if there's one
person in charge," Johns said.
Betz said the Medical Center's sense
of vision will be strengthened by hav-
ing one central leader.
"The various missions can be better
aligned and balanced," Betz said.
Regent Andrea Fischer Newman (R-
Ann Arbor) said the new post will be a
"very significant" part of the overall
restructuring. She said some of the
"people at the very, very top making
decisions are too far removed," and the
new position would provide for more
centralized and knowledgeable gover-
Newman said a search committee
would form soon after the regents cre-
ate the position, which she said she
hopes will be filled in the near future.
But even after the new position is
created, major cuts are still in the
Medical Center's future.
"There is still a significant chunk
left," Harrison said. "We think we can
save $19 to $20 million if we reduce
benefits for employees."
Harrison said the Medical Center
currently provides its employees excep-
tionally generous benefits packages
that could be partially maintained after
The remainder of the cuts - about
$120 million - would still have to be
determined. Harrison said a task force
is set to recommend the next wave of
cutbacks in early 1997 as part of the
three-year reduction plan.
"We're not sure how we're going to
make those cuts," Harrison said. "We'd
love to say we're done with layoffs ...
but we can't say that right now."
Betz said the cutbacks will ultimate-
ly improve the mission of the Medical

step forward," Betz said. "I foresee

that they will benefit from the
But Harrison conceded that the bud-
get cuts might prompt some to leave the
Medical Center. He said keeping and
attracting top-notch people may be
more difficult because of the uncertain

declined. "This is a matter of concern,"
Regent Shirley McFee (R-Battle

to debunk the myth that research is over-
valued at large, public universities.

should be raised privately, instead of
being taken out of the University's gen-
eral revenue fund. She said she supports
the concept of sponsoring child care,
but does not want to fund it through
tuition or state appropriations.
All of the board's Democrats - with
the exception of Regent Laurence
Deitch (D-Bloomfield Hills), who was
absent from the meeting - said they
support the childcare proposal. Regent
Shirley McFee (R-Battle Creek) also
expressed support of a University child
Regent Rebecca McGowan (D-Ann
Arbor) said the University should be
ready to help students with child care
"It is a simple and modest step,"
McGowan said. "I fully support the dol-
lar fee for child care."
Regent Nellie Varner (D-Detroit)
said helping to finance child care will
increase accessibility to the University.
"This is certainly something that is
needed very badly," Varner said, noting
that child care needs have "a disparate
impact on female students"
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor)
said the student mandate for child care
assistance does not seem very strong.
He said the low turnout in MSA elec-
tions does not imply overwhelming
support for the plan.
"I've never believed personally that 8
or 10 or 12 percent of the student body is
really representative," Baker said.
Baker also said the Child Care Task
Force that formulated the plan did not
properly consider the long-term costs of
a University-sponsored program. There
is the possibility that a child care pro-
gram could slowly creep out of control,
driving up costs and becoming
unwieldy, Baker said.
But Regent Philip Power (D-Ann
Arbor) said the proposal was modest in
scope, and could be a cautious first step
to consider later expansion.
"The pilot program should be regard-
ed as an opportunity to learn a great
deal" Power said.
McFee said it is important to provide
child care because it will help stimulate
the intellectual capacities of young chil-
dren. She said providing quality child
care is a serious need in society.
"This is an employer and a business
problem as much as it is a public edu-
cation problem," McFee said.
