At its monthly meeting on
Thursday, the University's

Board of Regents is set to
approve a host of renovation
projects across campus, rang-
ing from minor structural and
maintenance needs to large-
scale renovations of iconic
campus buildings.
Among upgrades the board
will consider is the mainte-
nance of existing structures
at Michigan Stadium, the Wil-

liam L. Clements Library, the
basement of the College of
Pharmacy, the North Campus
Research Complex and a tunnel
along South University Avenue
that serves the Central Campus
power plant.
Michigan Stadium, built in
1927, is in need of $6 million in*
paint and maintenance work,
Timothy Slottow, the Univer-

sity's executive vice president
and chief financial officer,
wrote in a communication to
the regents. He added that
enlargements to the stadium
in 1948, 1998 and 2010 have
weakened and corroded exist-
ing steel girders that are now
in need of repair or replace-
ment.

FACULTY GOVERNANCE
SACUA inquires
into increase i
grievances filed
by 'U' faculty

SPECIAL VISITORS

Group-seeks
increased faculty
representation on
N search committees
ByAUSTEN HUFFORD
Daily StaffReporter
An uptick in the number of
faculty complaints filed under
the University's grievance pro-
cedure this year led to concern
among faculty members at Mon-
day's senate Advisory Com-
mittee on University Affairs
meeting.
Under the procedure, which
was approved in April 2011, Uni-
versity faculty have filed at most
one complaint in an academic
year. The program serves as a
tool for faculty to raise issues
with the administration of aca-
demic units and their leader-
ship.
The three grievances filed
already this year prompted
speculation at Monday's meet-

ing about whether the increase
in the incidence of little-used
procedure is an aberration or a
sign of unrest among faculty.
Social Work Associate Prof.
Karen Staller, SACUA vice chair
and the faculty grievance moni-
tor, said it is unclear whether
this increase is an anomaly or
the start of a trend.
At their weekly meeting,
SACUA members also discussed
a model for appointing faculty
members to executive search
committees, such as the search
for the next University presi-
dent, and methods of alleviating
low attendance at the organiza-
tion's gatherings.
In a typical year, there are
zero complaints filed by faculty,
but so far this year, there have
been three. Social Work Associ-
ate Prof. Karen Staller, SACUA
vice chair and the faculty griev-
ance monitor, said it is unclear
whether this increase is an
anomaly or the start of a trend.
The model faculty griev-
ance procedure was adopted

Students still scrambling in
their search for housing next year
are in luck - a recently launched
website, A2Cribs.com, aggregates
available properties for local
house hunters using the Google
Maps application. The site went
live last Wednesday, and received
519 visitors on the first day.
Created by three University
students for their peers, A2Cribs
sorts its collection ofhousinglist-
ings by University term and unit
type, allowing users to search
a specified range of beds and
rent prices. Engineer seniors
Tim Jones and Evan Dancer and
Business senior Jason Okrasin-
