Provost urges SACUA to hire clinical faculty
By Janet Adamy
Daily Staff Reporter
The University's faculty may see the
addition of professional architects,
musicians and scientists if a recent pro-
posal comes to fruition.
In a meeting with members of the
Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs yesterday, Provost J.
Bernard Machen discussed his support
for the expansion of clinical faculty -
non-tenured professionals who teach
the professional applications of their
"The mission of the University
remains teaching, research and ser-
vice," Machen said. "In the fulfillment
of our mission, I'm convinced that clin-
ical faculty can be a significant asset:'
Machen said at least six schools and
colleges within the University have
petitioned to acquire clinical faculty.
Currently, clinical faculty exist in the
School of Medicine, College of
Pharmacy, Law School and School of
School of Education Dean Cecil
Miskel said his school requested the
addition of clinical faculty members
because it wanted to take advantage of
what he called the "experts" in the field
- the teachers who actually work with
"People with experience in schools
have brought a new perspective into our
program," Miskel said. "We want the
flexibility to bring in teachers to help us
prepare future educators."
Machen stressed the importance of
integrating clinical faculty into the
"You're not hiring second-class citi-
zens," Machen said. "You're hiring peo-
ple that are contributing to the mission
of the University."
Machen said he supports the addition
of more clinical faculty under the con-
dition that the Office of the Provost
approves all appointments and promo-
tions, in addition to following the same
search procedures that apply to search-
es for instructional faculty and adminis-
Machen also stipulated that schools
and colleges requesting the addition of
clinical faculty would be required to
submit a detailed articulation of the
need for such faculty in their depart-
ment. Clinical faculty members would
not receive tenure.
Law Prof. Samuel Gross said he was
concerned the University would not be
able to attract qualified clinical faculty
because it is not located in a major met-
ropolitan area. ie added that the Law
School has been limited because the
"legal community in Ann Arbor is very
"To some extent, if we want to get the
best people ... we're going to have to
commit them to full time," Gross said.
Machen said he was not concerned
about the quality of clinical professor
Machen, who began clinical appoint-
ments while dental dean in 1990, said
the school's annual teaching award has
been given to a clinical faculty member
each of the last four years.
Although SACUA members
expressed concerns that the addition of
clinical professors would weaken the
tenure system, Machen said the number
of tenured faculty has remained the
same since clinical faculty members
first came to the University.
"I really believe this is a way we can
solidify tenure at our University."
Machen said. "I don't see it in any way
as a threat to our tenure.
Machen said basic training in teach-
ing would be provided if faculty needed
it. He also said he would not object to
appointing clinical faculty to the senate
The Board of Regents must appro\ e
the expansion of clinical faculty posts
before more hirings can be made.
Education Prof Valerie Lee said she
supports the addition of clinical faculty
in her department.
"The general public wonders what
people who haven't been teaching in
schools for the last 20 years are doing
teaching people how to teach," Lee said.

Mike Murray, who is considering a
bid for the 8th District's congressional
seat, may have accomplished many
goals in the political arena.
But there is one goal he has yet to
meet - fulfilling the University's for-
eign language requirement.
Murray, a 30-year-old on-and-off
University student, recently
resigned as com-

"It's just such a politically dynamic
atmosphere," Murray said.
Murray said the diversity of political
views at the University taught him a
key lesson in life - tolerance.
"It allows me to appreciate other
people's opinions,' Murray said.
Murray said he will announce
whether he will run for Congress
within eight weeks, in which time
he will have fully explored his
options and support.
Murray has previously worked on
many state and national campaigns for
the Republican Party.
Sage Eastman, press secretary for the
Michigan Republican Party, said it is to
early to speculate who will be the best
candidate for the seat in 1998.
But he is hopeful the seat will be
regained by his party.
"We're really glad to see there's a
