COPE include Cornell University,
Dartmouth College, Harvard Uni-
versity, Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, University of Califor-
nia at Berkeley, University of Otta-
wa and Columbia University.
In the press release, University
Provost Phillip Hanlon said the
new approach aims to improve both
how the University attains and
"Ultimately, it can both reduce
our own costs for journal acquisi-
tion and can help ensure that the
work of our faculty is disseminated
as broadly as possible," he said.
All University faculty, post-
doctoral researchers, graduate
and professional students, staff
members and students are eligible
to apply for funding, with up to
$3,000 in subsidies available.
The University is specifically
interested in funding authors who
retain publishing rights for their
work. Authors who do not retain
their copyrights are subject to a
decrease in the funding they are
The program has been implant-
ed on a trial basis, and it will be
evaluated after a two-year period,
according to the press release.
According to the University
Library website, open-access pub-
lishing increases how often stu-
dents visit electronic sources. It is
estimated that open-access articles
are twice as likely to be download-
ed than non-open-access articles.
Maria Bonn, associate librarian
for University Publishing, said the
initiative would also help sustain
electronic sources by making sure
they remain secure and intact.
"If it's publicly owned and if it's
broadly used, it's more likely to be
maintained," she said. "The worst
thing for an electronic resource is
for nobody to ever look at it."
In the press release, Dean of
Libraries Paul Courant said the
program will be effective if it suc-
cessfully shifts the economics of
scholarship and attracts users.
"Our goal is to provide the broad-
est possible access to the scholarly
record and join our colleagues in an
important effort to examine new
economic models for scholarly pub-
lishing," he said.
Bonn said that signing on to
COPE is one part of a larger effort
to promote open access to resourc-
"The library is hoping to sup-
port open access in many forms,"
she said. "We have a lot of other
programs and initiatives to help
our scholars learn about and take
advantage of open access, but this is
an important part of our strategy."

involved in nine different projects
concerning stem cells, including a
study on severed spinal cords.
SENATE ASSEMBLY FORMS
HEALTH PLAN ADVISORY
Senate Assembly members also
voted to form an advisory task force
to create faculty involvement in
health plan incentives at yesterday's
According to the University
Record, Associate Vice President
for Human Resources Laurita
Thomas created a Member Engage-
ment Health Plan Design Commit-
tee to develop a healthplan inwhich
healthy behaviors are rewarded,
with possible monetary incentives.
The new health plan could be put in
place as early as 2012.
Statistics Prof. Ed Rothman,
chair of Senate Advisory Com-
mittee on University Affairs - the
University's leading faculty gover-
nance body - said the committee
was concerned that the health plan
incentives will be based on out-
comes rather than participation. He
said he feels this could discourage
faculty who have a genetic disposi-
tion to health problems from par-
Biology Prof. John Lehman, who
is also a SACUA member, said he
was concerned about the secrecy
of the Member Engagement Health
Design Committee, which he said
withheld the minutes and docu-
mentation of the meetings from
"We've got to articulate the prin-
ciples that we feel should be in place
as faculty," Lehman said.

gender-neutral housing report to be
presented to the University's Board
of Regents in November. Horky said
gender-neutral housing would be
an option for students applying to
live in residence halls next fall if the
report is approved. %
"If you look at where we started,
which is no awareness, no one on
campus knowing what it was, what
the issue would be, then we've come
a longway," Horky, who has worked
on the issue for more than two years,
said in an interview.
Jacqueline Simpson works with
Horky in the Division of Student
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Prof. John Lehman addresses the.Senate Assembly yesterday.
Associate Voice Prof. Steve
Lusmann, who is also a member
of SACUA and is on the Mem-
ber Engagement Committee, said,
though he feels the committee is
more open compared to others in
the past, he supports the forma-
tion of a faculty committee that
could contribute ideas to the health
Lusmann added that he feels
the new health plan will not be a
problem for those with pre-existing
"If you are engaging in a healthy
behavior, if you do have a problem
with weight...we want you to eat in a
healthier way, we want you to exer-
cise. All of these things need to be
addressed," Lusmann said. "If you
are addressing obesity, if you are
addressing your health concerns,
you do not get penalized."
Under the passed motion, Lehm-
Affairs in the Spectrum Center.
Simpson said in an interview that
the gender-neutral housing option
has received widespread support.
"It's not a Spectrum Center thing;
it's not a gay student thing," Simp-
son said. "There's lots of groups, lots
of organizations, lots of different
identities that are interested in this
particular policy change."
At the meeting, Trevor Grieb,
Business sophomore and RHA
president, compared the current
aversion to gender-neutral housing
with the aversion to making resi-
dence halls co-educational during
the 1960s. He said that many people
believed at the time that the preg-
nancy rate would increase after the
residence halls became co-ed.
an stated that the Senate Assem-
bly reserves the right to issue its
own report in early 2011, with the
complete disclosure of all of the
materials. It also asked the admin-
istration to halt policy decisions
until the Senate Assembly report is
Linda Newman, director of
University Housing, spoke at yes-
terday's meeting about the Univer-
sity's efforts to house this year's
freshman class, which is the largest
in University history.
Joined by E. Royster Harper,
vice president for Student Affairs,
and Loren Rullman, associate vice
president for Student Affairs, New-
A survey conducted in March by
the Gender Neutral Housing Coali-
tion yielded supportive results from
University students. According to
an April 1 article in The Michigan
Daily, 67 percent of students who
responded to a survey sent by the
Gender Neutral Housing Coalition,
would welcome a gender-neutral
housing option for University resi-
Nineteen percent of respondents
said they wouldn't support the
LSA senior Syed Muhammad
Raza, a resident advisor in South
Quadrangle, said in an interview
that the majority of people he has
spoke to about gender-neutral hous-
ing are against the option because
man said officials were able to suc-
cessfully house all freshmen who
applied for University Housing.
Newman said to accommodate
the large number of students, Uni-
versity Housing repurposed offices
in Oxford Housing, which added 60
beds, used student lounges to create
120 additional beds and established
a first-year experience program in
Newman added that the Univer-
sity has also been "de-densifying"
student living space in the past few
years by ensuring students have
adequate space to live and learn.
Newman said though the Uni-
versity is currently housing the
largest number of freshman resi-
dents in its history, she doesn't see
the number increasing.
"We see that number staying
somewhat constant for the next 10
to 20 years," Newman said.
they want personal space.
"There's people for it and there's
people against it," Raza said.
He said he feels opting for
gender-neutral housing is an indi-
vidual choice that would not affect
his decision to live in the residence
LSA senior Sandhya Simhan,
who also lives in South Quad, said
she can understand other people's
apprehension, but gender-neutral
housing would have been some-
thing she would have chosen if it
was offered when she lived in the
"It's high time," Simhan said.
