,You feel like you re being ignored,' he said.
'No one told us'
Sociology doctoral student ('edic deLeon said he is experi-
encing another problem related to LSA budgeting. The sociol-
ogy department has decided to only give fellowships to
raduate 'students who reach candidacy by the end of their
third year, deLcon sad. This will 110 into effect for current
second-year graduate studetnts and all students after that
group. "They're comingt up vv ith acompromise for third-year
students for a half-year fellowship and a half-year GSI-ship;"
deLeon said.
But deLeon said third-year students who were countingI on
- a full fellowship are still worried.
"The people in my year are terrified because they didn't
know this would happen. No one told us. It just came at us.
We're scrambling," deLeon said.
Gin said when she was hired in previous years, the depart-
ments did not consider what collcge she was a student in.
"Ihey were doinut tuition-blind hiing back then. Now the
* departments in LSA are constricted by this bottom line bud-
cetinm, (il said.
Gin said departments need to hire graduate students from
schools outside of LSA for courses like Comm 102.
, "This course historically relies on experienced GSis outside
of LSA. Bottom line budgetingl would break that pattern,' she
"What would this mean for quality of instruction? Current-
ly we have three GSIs working for the class I'm teachinU.
None of them are returnin. Ile relies on the veteran GSIs to
train the new GSIs"' Gin said.
"So basically, I'm the only one who has taught this class
continuously who is available to teach this class in the fell:'
he added. "IHe'll have to hae four tnew GSIs and none of
them will have tauughit this class bcf6rc."
Questions of quality
Mihas said he does not think LSA departments will hire the
best (GSis available at the University under the new budutetin u
"'bO me. that tells me that you can't hire the best people out
there. You can only hire within constraints. In big, departments
tjcy need a lot of graduate student instructors. 'Mihas said.
"Students are going to get a GSI that the department thinks

they can jam into the position. They're going to get GSis who
(101n't know their subject."
Dore said the communication studies department would not
hire someone who is not qualified to teach and with the new
budgeting plan, she did not expect any trouble in hiringt GSs.
"I don't anticipate having a shortage of (iS~s, but if they're
a quality out-of-state student, the department doesn't have the
funds to pay for their tuition," Dore said.
Some GSIs said they think teaching is a valuable part of
graduate school and they would be sorry not to have the
opportunity to spend with undergraduates,
Mihas said next year is his final year in school as well as his
last opportunity to teach
"You only get one shot as being able to teach as a GSI. I'll
never get that opportunity again," he said.
Assistant Prof. Cathe-ine Benamou, who teaches courses in
American culture, romance lanuages and film and video
studies, said in her fields, "there are not a lot of Ph.D. candi-
dates. (The new budgeting plan) narrows the pool.
Benamou said that she will therefore need to spend more
time training graduate student candidates from other depart-
ments. She also said that the (ISIs hired from other depart-
ments might not be able to help undergraduate students as
well as an instructor from a tmore applicable field.
"It will mean that underuraduates will need more contact
with the pimary instructor: B eniamou said.
Gin said specifically in SNRL, GSI positions are not
readily available. There fore, there aren't many tuit ion
waivers given away by SNRE, even without a budgetingt
plan to limit them.
"In the School of Natural Resources and the Environment
we don't tend to get financial aid. There is no financial aid
within the SNRE as opposed to other departments that get fel-
lowship finding' Gin said.
"A lot of the students in the SNR I end up GSI-iing outside
of the SNR:'she added.
Gin said in the future, people who are real ly oinut to be
hurt are the pre-candidate doctoral students like herself.
"To the next ceneration anVone who's t hinkinu about
entering a Ph.D. program in the SNRE or other professional
schools in 2001 -thev need to consider that it's coi nu to be
next to impossible to get (ISI positions in I.SA if bottom line
budgetinut coes throuch.(iin said.
N ihas said with the neX\ 1LSA budgeting plans. graduate
students will not get their full education.
"That's part of the education of a graduate student -- to
teach it as well as learn it' he said.

Detroit Project hopes to improve

24-year-old man who prefers to be
known as "D' and his friends Elroy
Jackson and Shawn Johnson watched
the army of University students parade
through the neighborhood on their way
to other vaied activities.
"D" is a construction worker who
lives in Southfiek, but he grew up in the
3rghtmoor neighborhood.
He said he appreciated the effort of
the students to help clean things up.
"Y'all need the experience part of
this:' lie said. "The only thing that we're
negative about, is that we had some out-

Katie Foley, an LSA senior, said Satur-
