Walsh was one of the lecturers who began recruiting other
lecturers to form a union about three years ago, when LEO was
in its grassroots stages.
"We have a contract, and from our point of view it's not
being honored," he said to his class. Walsh spoke about issues
including the reclassifications and delayed pay increases that
have been plaguing LEO.
"The University has gotten stupid and now has long-winded
procedures for lecturers to get raises who've completed their
reviews," he said. "It's incredible foot-dragging."
Most students in Walsh's class were aware of problems
between the University and the union last year and asked if
any improvements have been seen since. Walsh said some
advances have been made, but not all of the problems have
been addressed. He also said there is a great disparity concern-
ing the treatment of lectures in different academic units.
LSA senior Priyanka Shah, a student in Walsh's class, said
after listening to Walsh's teach-in that it made her think about
how lecturers have dominated her undergraduate education.
"They are our teachers. I've barely been taught by profes-
sors, so I think as students we need to support them in any way
we can," Shah said.
Kate Mendelhoff, also an RC drama lecturer who helped
organize LEO in its initial stages, said she feels comfortable in
her position as a lecturer because of the autonomy and security
she has over how things are run in the RC.
As a lecturer IV - meaning one who has administrative
as well as teaching duties - she related her past experiences
working as a part-time lecturer, which provided little job secu-
rity, to similar problems currently being faced by lecturers in
different academic units.
"It can't help but be detrimental to creativity (in forming les-
sons). As a teacher, I need to be planning work rather than wor-
rying about whether I'll be working next semester," she said.

Requiring students to purchase a University
health insurance plan could help eliminate this
problem and be helpful for sick, uninsured stu-
dents that struggle to pay their medical bills.
The health insurance plan for international
students serves as a case study for why requiring
domestic students to purchase a health care plan
may be a good idea.
The plan for international students costs nearly
$1,000 less than the domestic plan even though
there are only a few small differences in service
between the two, said Karen Klever, student
insurance manager for UHS.
The difference in price, she said, can be attrib-
uted to the fact that the international plan is man-
datory for all international students. Healthy and
unhealthy students alike must buy it, keeping the
price down for everyone.
"If the University required that everyone be.
insured, the cost of the domestic plan would drop
sharply," she said.
Winfield said he thinks the University should
consider requiring all students to have insurance.
He said that in the past, uninsured students have
had to refuse expensive but necessary treatment,
while others were forced to quit school to pay
medical bills. According to a 2003 study by the
Kaiser Foundation - a nonprofit organization for
public health research - people without insur-
ance are about three times more likely to skip
treatment or not fill a prescription.
"In spite of the cost, I believe it's always pru-
dent to be insured," Winfield said.
About 25 percent of public universities with
more than 10,000 students currently require that
their students be insured, including Michigan
State University, Ohio State University and the
University of Minnesota, said Steven Beckley, a
private health care management consultant.
But not all universities want mandatory health
insurance, Beckley said. Some schools have phased
out their university-run medical insurance plans,
he said, because they decided students could find a
better value and quality of service elsewhere.
"There are also fears that requiring insurance
will adversely affect the most at-risk students and
make it even more financially difficult for them to
attend college," Beckley added.
According to last year's U.S. Census, 19 per-
cent of American college students are currently
uninsured. But that figure does not include stu-
dents above the age of 24, who are no longer
eligible for insurance provided by their parents'
employers. The actual figure is closer to 30 per-
cent, Beckley said.
The percentage of uninsured students at the Uni-
versity is unusually low, said Beckley. According to
a UHS survey conducted in April 2000, only 3 per-
cent of undergraduate students and 3 to 7 percent of
graduate students do not have health insurance.
UHS recently finished another survey of all
three University campuses, Winfield said.
The survey was intended to gather statistics
on the number of students without insurance and
how they would feel about being required to buy
it from the University. Survey results have not yet
been released, but Winfield said UHS will take
them into account when deciding what stance to
recommend to the administration.
Winfield added that regardless of whatever
changes UHS eventually decides to propose, any
concrete action would take at least two or three
"I'm not even sure I'm going to support it yet,"

The hazing victims were pledges, she added.
Haughee said GARP and the IFC have notified ZBT's national organization
of the campus chapter's hazing violations. The national organization, however,
has not imposed further restrictions on the house, he said.
The allegations brought against ZBT are the first against any organization in
the Greek community this semester, Eklund said.
"The Greek community has worked hard to reduce, if not eliminate, haz-
ing this year, with their educational website and programs for new members,"
Eklund said. "I think it's had a good impact, because in addition to few accusa-
tions, there have been many fewer rumors about hazing this year."
Amber Leigh Lowden, a member of the Hazing Task Force, agreed.
"I think we are taking important steps to let the community know that there
are more effective ways to welcome new members to an organization than haz-
ing," Lowden said. "People have been more vocal about hazing, and for the
campus to be so alert now is very encouraging, especially after last semester."
Two Greek organizations - the Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority and the Alpha
Tau Omega fraternity - also faced charter revocations from their national
organizations last semester because of hazing and risk management allega-
tions. Last February, GARP also suspended Sigma Alpha Epsilon from the IFC
and placed the fraternity on an additional 15 weeks of social probation due to
the organization's continued violations of the Greek social policy.

clinic after injuring his shoulder in an attempt to make an interception dur-
ing a flag football game.
"The physician was very knowledgeable," he said. "They gave me medi-
cation and told me how to rehabilitate."
Winfield stressed that UHS takes complaints seriously, and is "always,
always trying to make the quality of health care better."
"When (service) breaks down, it's not typically due to the person not car-
ing - it may be due to the system, maybe we don't have the right process
(or) the right knowledge," he said. "The people that work here want to be
here and want to do a good job."
