Thomas Dunn, outgoing chair of the faculty's
governing body, passed the gavel to his successor,
Dr. Louis D'Alecy, at the semester's final Senate
Assembly meeting yesterday.
Dunn, a chemistry professor, said he is glad to
have served as a chair of both the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs and the Senate
Assembly for the past three years and is now hop-
ing for "a safe return to the faculty."
"I treasure the experience, but I'm glad that it
only lasts for three years," Dunn said.
D'Alecy said lie looks forward to leading
SACUA and the Senate Assembly and will look to
Dunn for advice throughout his term.
"I hope that I can carry the torch as well as
(Dunn) has,"said D'Alecy, a physiology professor.
Before passing his position on to D'Alecy,
Dunn reflected on the changes that took place
within SACUA and the Senate Assembly during
his term. He emphasized the improvement of the
relationship between faculty and administration.
"The current state of affairs (in faculty gover-
nance) is very much an effort of (Provost J. Bernard
Machen's) openness and the cooperation of (former
Interim University President Homer Neal)."
Senate Assembly member Pot Maloy, a kinesiol-
ogy professor, praised Machen, who will be leav-
ing his post at the University in late summer, for
his work with the faculty. I
"Provost Machen has done a great deal to estab-
lish the key to faculty governance understanding,'
Maloy said, noting that Machen successfully adapt-
ed to multiple turnovers in the University's adminis-
Dunn said that the involvement of the faculty in
the selection of University President Lee Bollinger
last November also helped improve the communi-
cation between faculty and administration.
Dunn said the need for the faculty to match the
student body's increasing diversity will be a
prominent issue in the future.
"For most of us, when we go into the classroom,
we don't meet the same class that we did 20 years
ago," Dunn said, noting that the demographics of
the faculty do not parallel those of the student body.
Also at the meeting, the faculty officially approved

a report that outlines the principles of faculty involve-
ment in institutional and academic unit governance.
Dunn said the report, which was put together by the
Academic Affairs Advisory Committee, is a clarifi-
cation of the principles for faculty governance that
are stated in the Regent's Bylaws.
"This report reaccentuates the responsibilities
and the prerogatives of the faculty, but at the same
time recognizes the methods of the different units;'
Machen said the report does not make any fun-
damental changes in any of the concepts of facul-
"This document fills a vacuum, in that we do
not presently have a document that outlines the
principles of faculty governance," Machen said.

As the students move out, the thieves
may move in.
With the closing down of residence
halls scheduled to occur in less than
two weeks and other students leaving
off-campus housing, theft rates may
soon climb slightly.

and around residence halls during

When students begin fall term, they will have a new
option to pay for college - tutoring.
The University is one of 14 Michigan colleges and
universities that is participating in President Clinton's
America Reads Initiative, which allows' for up to half
of all work study students to teach elementary school
children to read.
"There's been a literacy effort in the past, but
there's never been anything this dramatic' said
Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), an advocate of the
program, in an interview with The Michigan
Daily last month.
Mary Beth Damm, assistant director of the
University's new Center for Learning Through
Community Service, said there has been a positive
reaction to the new program.
"People love the idea of college students working
with elementary school students," Damm said.
But Damm said the University plans to use only
between 75 and 125 of the University's 3,500 work
study students for the program.
"It's not realistic to have half of all work study stu-
dents in this program," Damm said. "We could not fit
Currently the University is hiring a coordinator for
the program, Damm said. The University is also in
preliminary discussions with two Ann Arbor-area
school districts, she said.
The School of Education has also committed to
assist the tutors.
"At this point, we made a committment to support
the service," said Education Assistant Dean Karen
Wixon. "It's really important work."
Wixon said she wants to assure a quality tutoring
program for the young children.
"All tutoring is not created equal," Wixon said. "'Ae
