Tenure topic of Bollinger's address

By Paul Berg
Daily Staff Reporter
University President Lee Bollinger discussed
growing concerns surrounding diverse faculty
roles at the Senate Advisory Council on University
Affairs meeting yesterday.
"The relationship of the tenured faculty to other
faculty is complicated and raises important ques-
tions," Bollinger said. "This is an issue of great
scale, and we should not come up with quick,
obvious answers."
Statistically, the University faculty composition
is becoming increasingly heavy with non-tenured
members, as evidenced by a report from the Office
of the Provost.
Non-tenured faculty made up 39.2 percent of
total faculty in 1996, up from 28.5 percent in 1987.
Increases were more dramatic in the medical, nurs-
ing and dentistry schools, reflecting a demand for
clinical professors.

"The reasons the Medical School uses non-
tenured faculty are very different from the LSA's
reasons," pathology Prof Peter Ward said.
SACUA members expressed worries about ten-
sion between tenured professors and their non-
tenured colleagues.
"I see future strife when people are talented
enough, but have no way of getting on the tenured
track," SACUA Chair and pharmacology Prof.
William Ensminger said.
During recent weekly meetings, the faculty's
executive governing body has explored the possi-
bility of incorporating non-tenured faculty into the
University's democratic procedures, and has met
several obstructions.
Technical challenges include a necessary
change in the University Board of Regents' bylaws
and constructing a formulaic approach to re-
apportionment and representation. Re-apportion-
ment occurs every three years, and determines

how many representatives each school elects to sit
on the assembly.
Decisions on priorities and values color these
objectives. Bollinger said these decisions must be
made with regard to a "continuing trend."
"Expanding representation is a good idea,"
Bollinger said. "But I don't think we are in sta-
sis. We can only get a snapshot of the
moment."
SACUA currently is looking at the number of
non-tenured representatives on Senate Assembly
and the way in which non-tenured faculty should
be allowed to vote to elect assembly representa-
tives.
Sociology Prof. Donald Deskins said that using
a categorical ballot, similar to the way the College
of Literature, Science and the Arts faculty voting
procedure allows faculty members to vote for rep-
resentatives within their respective departments, is
one option.

"By having non-tenured folks vote only for non-
tenured candidates, we could create a fair system,"
Deskins said.
Setting the number of non-tenured representa-
tives is also problematic, and may require a change
in the size of Senate Assembly.
Ensminger said he'd like to give 10 percent of
the assembly seats to non-tenured representa-
tives, but attempting to maintain this percentage
would result in difficulties with re-apportion-
ment.
Other SACUA members raised concerns that
the Medical School, with its high percentage"of
non-tenured faculty, would be too heavily repre-
sented through the inclusion of non-tenured facul-
ty.
Yesterday, SACUA members asked Senate
Assembly Rules Committee Chair Ron Lomax to
develop models to test the voting and representa-
tion options.

Stores waited on printing
of Rose Bowl apparel

By Adam Cohen
Daily Staff Reporter
Before the big games, clothing man-
ufacturers must make an important
decision - do they anticipate a
Wolverine victory or do they wait for
the game's final gun?
Makers of Michigan football apparel
faced this question prior to Saturday's
game versus Ohio State University.
If the Wolverines had been victori-
ous, they would have played in the Rose
Bowl on New Year's Day. A win would
have sent hundreds of eager Michigan
fans, basking in Wolverine glory, to
purchase Michigan Rose Bowl apparel.
Last year, a number of stores took a
chance by printing T-shirts and making
hats before the Wolverines had secured
a spot in the Rose Bowl by beating
Ohio State.
This year, however, most stores did
not take that chance.
"We took the gamble last year," said
Bud VanDeWege, co-owner of Moe
Sport Shops Inc. "Since it was a home
game, people were here and would have
immediately wanted to buy the apparel.
"We thought it was a harder win this
year. It would have been more of a risk,"
he said.
If Michigan had lost to Ohio State
,last year, VanDeWege said Moe Sport
Shops Inc. would have donated most of

"We hIave never pre-printed. We just
try to respond as quickly as
possible."
- Steven Shore
Co-owner of Steve & Barry's University Sportswear

the apparel to charity.
"In 1997, when the hockey team lost,
we wrongly predicted their victory and
pre-made clothing" VanDeWege said.
"Sometimes you've got to eat the losses."
Other local stores also held back on
printing the T-shirts and other clothing
before the Columbus game's end this
year.
"The fact that it was an away game
had a lot to do with it," said John Bertz,
store manager of an M-Den store.
Last year, Bertz said, M-Den was pre-
pared with Rose Bowl shirts for after the
Ohio State game.
"We had a 50-50 proposition with the
printers," Bertz said. "Because of the
street vendors, who always have shirts
before the game's end, good manufac-
tures will absorb some of the losses
with a home game. They would have
absorbed 50 percent of the losses had
Michigan lost" last year, Bertz said.
Compared to last year's game with

Ohio State, for the local stores,
Saturday's game had a much different
atmosphere.
"Usually we take the conservative
route. But last year, with all the hype,
we had a few hats and shirts before they
beat Ohio State. We weren't alone,"said
M-Den Co-owner Dave Hirth.
Some vendors of apparel never take
the gamble of printing before the win.
"We have never pre-printed," said
Steven Shore, co-owner of Steve &
Barry's University Sportswear. "We just
try to respond as quickly as possible."
Before the outcome of a big game is
determined, the manufacturer for the
national chains of Footlocker, Lady
Footlocker, Champ's and Eastbay create
prototypes for the apparel.
"We don't actually make up material
before a win. Once we know, the print-
ers stay up all night to print up the win-
ners," said Jamie Ziebell, supervisor at
Eastbay.

Michigan Assistant Attorney General Roland Hwang speaks about hate
crimes last night at Hutchins Hall.
rple a ent hate %crimes

By Jessica D'Onofrio
For the Daily
The recent highly publicized mur-
ders of James Byrd, Jr. in Texas and
Matthew Shepard in Wyoming have
raised the nation's awareness of the
threat of hate crimes.
Law students attended a discus-
sion last night with Assistant
MichiganAttorney General Roland
Hwang, who delivered the first
installment of the Michigan Journal
of Race and Law's Speaker Series
titled "The Anatomy of Hate Crimes:
From Racial Hatred to Racial
Violence."
Hwang was accompanied by
Joyce Chang, a University alumnus
and social worker for Chelsea
Community Hospital, who
explained the motivation behind hate
crime perpetrators.
"When a community changes,
there is an increase in the sense of
threat," Chang said. "The effects of
hate crimes are intense. It affects the
whole'community the person repre-
sents."
In addition, Chang cited the emo-
tional effects of hate crimes.
"Victims experience extreme
depression, stress and often post
traumatic stress syndrome," Chang
said. "The effects can last as long as
five years."
Chang explained there are four
reasons why people commit hate
crimes.
"Some people feel they are doing
it out of self defense or they do it

because they feel that they have a
duty to uphold the morals of soci-
ety," Chang said. "Most young peo-
ple commit hate crimes because they
are thrill seekers or because of peer
pressure."
Many anti-violence groups are
trying working on the pervasive
problem not only through legisla-
tion, Chang said. but through educa-
tion as well.
Hwang said schools must change
their curriculums to curb hate
crimes.
"The teachers and community
must be educated on issues of race,"
Hwang said.
LSA junior Jennifer Bucholz said
she attended the seminar because
she is interested in race relations and
because of the recently publicized
hate crimes.
"I thought I could learn something
more," Bucholz said.
Hwang said it takes a community
effort to prosecute and prevent hate
crimes.
"Bring information to the atten-
tion of people who are interested and
can do something such as prosecu-
tors," Hwang said.
Kara Jennings, a law first-year
student, said she is interested in
learning more about violent acts
against many marginalized
groups.
"As a white person, I feel as if I
have a responsibility to do what I can
to see that this hatred does not con-
tinue," Jennings said.
