Three safety agencies

By AUSTEN HUFFORD
Daily Staff Reporter
A report released Friday that served
as a catalyst for the reorganization
of major campus security programs
into the new Division of Public Safety
and Security exposed long-term ten-
sions and lack of cooperation between
the University's Department of Public
Safety and the other two major security
agencies on campus, Housing Security
and Hospitals & Health Centers Secu-
rity.
Margolis Healy & Associates, a Ver-
mont-based security consulting firm,
was hired by the University's Board of
Regents to conduct a study of the Uni-
versity's security agencies following
the discovery that administrators with-
in the University of Michigan Health
System delayed reporting the alleged
possession of child pornography by for-
mer medical resident Stephen Jenson to
police for six months.
At the regents meeting on Friday
in Flint, the creation of DPSS was for-
mally announced in response to the
study's recommendation for organiza-
tional changes to the structure of the
three units in order to eradicate ongo-

STATE BALLOT PROPOSALS AUTUMN AUSSIE
Caregivers seek
to enshrine union
rights with Prop. 4

Amendment would
codify rights for at-home
caregivers in constitution
By KATIE BURKE
Daily StaffReporter
This election cycle, Michigan voters
will have a say in how at-home health
caregivers organize and whether they
have the right to unionize.

Michigan's Proposal 4, set to appear
on the Nov. 6 ballot, recommends estab-
lishing the Michigan Quality Home Care
Council, an organization that would
train in-home care givers, create a regis-
try of verified workers and help patients
in need of financial aid in paying for in-
home health care. The council would also
set conditions for in-home employment
and standards along with terms of com-
pensation for such workers, in addition
to allowing in-home health care workers

Regents refuse to release external
review of UMHS child porn case

During fiscal year 2012,
endowment valued at
$7.8 billion
By PAIGE PEARCY and
PETER SHAHIN
Daily News Editor andDaily StaffReporter
For the first time since 2009, the Uni-
versity's endowment decreased in value
from $7.8 billion to $7.7 billion during
_ fiscal year 2012.

At the University's Board of Regents
meeting on Friday at the University's
Flint campus, Regent Katherine White
(D-Ann Arbor) spoke about the Univer-
sity's investment report, and explained
that the endowment decrease can be
attributed to spending patterns.
Additionally, the University's equity
investments, mostly stocks, declined
9.25 percent in value since last year. This
negative trend contrasts with a general
rise in the value of the Dow Jones Indus-
trial Average by about 8 percent between

Board will not share
full results with public,

By AUSTEN HUFFORD and ADAM
RUBENFIRE
Daily StaffReporter and Daily News Editor
At the University's Board of Regents
meeting in Flint on Friday, the board

announced the completion of an exter-
nal review of the University of Michi-
gan Health System's six-month delay in
reporting the possession of child por-
nography by former medical resident
Stephen Jenson.
However, the board will not release
the full report to the public. Instead,
the University released a summary of
the board's findings from reading the
report. University spokesman Rick
Fitzgerald said in an interview that the

University will not release the complete
report, which was prepared by Latham
& Watkins, L.L.P., citing attorney-client
privilege.
"The law firm did send a report to the
Board of Regents, but that work is done
under attorney-client privilege, at the
suggestion of the law firm," Fitzgerald
said. "It was their recommendation that
would give them the broadest latitude
to get to the bottom of things, and we
