Construction plans
still need Board of
Regents approval
By KAITLIN WILLIAMS
Daily StaffReporter
East Quad Residence Hall,
long-time home to the Residen-
tial College, will be temporar-
ily shutting its doors next year
while it undergoes a large-scale
construction project.
The renovations are expected
to start following the winter
2012 semester, with the resi-
dencehall reopening in time for
the fall 2013 semester, accord-
ing to LSA Associate Dean Phil
Deloria.
"It's going to be totally gutted
and taken apart, and it's going to
be beautiful when it's rebuilt,".
Deloria said.
During the construction, the
RC and the Michigan Communi-
ty Scholars Program, which will
be stationed in East Quad for the
second consecutive year, will be
moved to a different residence
hall. The exact location of the
move has yet to be determined,

Deloria said.
University Housing spokes-
man Peter Logan wrote in an
e-mail interview that the Uni-
versity's Board of Regents must
approve the construction plans
before it begins.
"We have talked about the
timing of the project, depend-
ing on the scope of the work,
but decisions about such major
projects have to be reviewed
and recommended through the
executive leadership of the Uni-
versity and ultimately approved
by the regents," Logan wrote.
The tentative plans have
not been officially announced,
but some students have been
informed of the future renova-
tions.
"For several months, Univer-
sity Housing has been engaged
in preliminary studies about
upgrading East Quad, includ-
ing discussions with students
and faculty there," Logan wrote.
"It's a heritage building in need
of infrastructure improvements,
and we hope that there will be a
plan for East Quad."
According to Deloria, the con-
struction is expected to take one

Students displeased
MCSP will not
return to Couzens
By KAITLIN WILLIAMS
Daily StaffReporter
Participants of the Michigan
Community Scholars Program,
a University living and learning

community centered on com-
munity service, will continue to
live and learn in East Quad Resi-
dence Hall instead of returning
to the program's original home
in Couzens Residence Hall next
year.
MCSP was relocated to East
Quad this year. The program
was initially supposed to move
back to Couzens in the fall after
renovations to the buildings are

finished. But Phil Deloria, LSA
associate dean for undergradu-
ate education, said the decision
to keep MCSP in East Quad for
the long-term was made on Fri-
day after administrators from
the LSA Dean's Office deliber-
ated with University Housing
officials and MCSP leaders.
MCSP students were notified
that the program would remain
in East Quad via e-mail by MCSP

Director David Schoem on Sun-
day. Deloria said he and Schoem
agreed to keep the MCSP in East
Quad.
However, for the 2012-2013
school year, MCSP and the Resi-
dential College will be relocated
to another residence hall due
to future construction on East
Quad. The East Quad renova-
tions are scheduled to begin

'U' Center for Ethics to
close due to budget cuts

'IF YOU CAN DODGE A WRENCH...'

Elimination of
center will reduce
classes, programs
on topic
By MICHELE NAROV
Daily StaffReporter
University students who
applied for fellowship programs
and research grants sponsored

by the University's Center for
Ethics in Public Life this year
were expecting to be granted or
denied their request.
Instead, they received an
e-mail that said due to recent
state government budget cuts,
the University has decided to
close the center entirely.
University spokesman Rick
Fitzgerald said due to budget
constraints determined by state
funding, certain University pro-
grams including the Center for

Ethics in Public Life were elimi-
nated. He said the center is not
closing because it failed to pro-
mote its message, but because it
had already met its goals.
"The evaluation was that
its mission of ethics in public
life was now sort of embedded
in the community," Fitzgerald
said. "And the provost's office
believed that would be sus-
tained without having a specific
center focused on that."

With a single click on the
University's gateway website,
a list of 25 mental health treat-
ment centers, student support

groups, student organizations
and web resources appear.
Though the list may look
complete, the University is still
trying to find the right bal-
ance of services to effectively
accommodate students' men-
tal health needs. Daniel Eisen-
berg, an associate professor in
the School of Public Health, is
leading a team on the Healthy
Minds Study that is working to
find that balance.

The HMS is an annual
national survey that explores
the prevalence of depression,
anxiety and eating disorders
among college students and
examines how many students
seek treatment for these condi-
