"Something needs to be done on this
campus in terms of housing because
we're not keeping up," she added. "We
are behind, and we've been behind."
Several regents, including Olivia
Maynard (D-Goodrich), echoed this
sentiment and urged University Hous-
ing to move forward promptly on its
recommendations. Maynard suggested
that next month Henry bring to the
board some specific price information.
The new hall will feature apartment
or suite-style housing, private bathrooms
and living rooms, which have become
increasingly popular over the years.
"Those days are over," Henry said, refer-
ring to past halls that relied on commu-
nal bathrooms and narrow hallways.
The new hall will most likely include
500 to 650 beds, and University Housing
will make a considerable effort to create
small living communities in clusters of
20 to 25 students in the hall. But the total
capacity of the University's residence

some beds will be lost in halls where

Henry said two of the most distinc-
tive and memorable halls on campus,
Mosher-Jordan and Stockwell, are first
in line for renovations. Next would be
Betsy Barbour House, Helen Newberry
House and West Quad Residence Hall.
During that process, University
Housing will have to shut down each
hall - one at a time - for an entire
school year. For those renovations, stu-
dents will most likely have to relocate
to North Campus - probably North-
wood residencies, where administrators

program, according to Hinshaw.
"People should know that this nurs-
ing shortage is a serious issue," Pohl
said. "Nationally, 16,000 qualified
applicants have been turned away due
to insufficient numbers of faculty."
Additionally, the University is begin-
ning the search for a new Nursing dean
this winter in response to the shortage,
to provide a longer period of time to
search for Hinshaw's replacement.
Nursing senior Lindsay Simon said
her professors have responded to this
shortage by pressuring her and other
students to go into nursing education.
"Our professors have been telling us
that there is going to be a shortage soon
in nursing educators. They've been try-
ing to put in our minds that teaching is
an option and it's important to take it
seriously because there is going to be a
huge shortage," Simon said.
She added that educators' low sala-
ries keep nursing students from pursu-
ing careers in teaching.
"Most people want to do something
else because there isn't much money in
teaching," she said.
But the shortage also creates
"It's comforting. 1 know I'll havec a
job when I graduate," Nursing junior
Megan Finn said.
She added that the shortage has
motivated her to work harder in school
and recruit other students to enroll in
the School of Nursing.
The University is planning ahead of
time in preparation of the faculty short-
age. Hinshaw explained that through
the Provost Loan Program, the Uni-
versity hopes to equip young nurses
for future teaching positions. In the
program, younger faculty are brought
in before a job opening is available and
are mentored by more experienced fac-
ulty. When the openings show up. an
experienced and young nurse is ready
to fill the position.
Hinshaw also said the University
has less of a problem recruiting nurs-
ing faculty than other universities.
"The University is fortunate. It is
higher ranked, and its reputation and
research-intensive environment attract
new faculty," Hinshaw said.
The U.S. News & World Report
ranked Michigan third among nursing
graduate schools in 2003.

modate this relocation. Overall, renova-
tions could take up to 20 years.
For new dining services, University
Housing envisions a marketplace setting
with restaurant-quality dining. One pos-
sible option could be grilling stations or
pasta bars. New dining centers will be
located on Central Campus and the Hill
area, while Bursley Hall aAd East Quad's
centers will get renovations.
West Quad, Bursley and halls on
the Hill could also receive emporiums,
which are a blend of a restaurant and
convenience store with caf6-seating,
computers and even plasma televisions.
At least one dining center is expected to
open in 2008.
At the same time, University Hous-
ing will continue to make technology
and safety improvements, including an
upgrade of fire alarms in all halls by
2007 and the installation of fire sup-
pression systems, such as sprinklers, by
2011. Such improvements will cost $7
to $10 million each year until improve-
ments are completed.
The new residence hall is not neces-
sarily intended to alleviate the hous-
ing crunch, which was caused by the
marked increase of about 500 extra
freshmen. This year's unexpectedly
large freshmen class was a "blip" and
should not happen again, University
spokeswoman Julie Peterson said.
Instead, the new hall will cater
to upperclassmen - but will not be
restricted to them, Henry said. Univer-
sity Housing has found that demand by
upperclassmen for on-campus hous-
ing is high when their desires.are met:
