President wants to
find replacement
with "due speed"
Daily Staff Reporter
With University Provost Philip
Hanlon set to leave the University
to become the president of Dart-
mouth College, University Presi-
dent Mary Sue Coleman said the
search for an interim provost is in
its beginning phase.
Despite his appointment, Han-
lon is scheduled to continue his
position as provost until mid-2013,
but said last week that he may take
some time offbefore beginninghis
new job at Dartmouth.
"It's a terrific opportunity and
it's a great place for me," Hanlon
said last week. "But you know
it's a bittersweet move because
Michigan is also a great place and
I'll miss our campus for sure."
In the past 50 years, only one
provost - Teresa Sullivan, Han-

Ion's predecessor and current
University of Virginia president
- was appointed as provost from
outside the University. When
Sullivan was selected as the
president of the University of Vir-
ginia, Coleman, without an offi-
cial search committee, selected
Hanlon as the University's next
provost within two weeks of Sul-
livan's announcement.
At the time, Hanlon was the
vice provost for academic and
budgetary affairs and also a can-
didate to become vice chancellor
and provost at the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Hanlon's candidacy at UNC cre-
ated the impetus for Coleman's
rapid decision.
Though Coleman wouldn't
say definitively whether she
would take such decisive action
in replacing Hanlon, she said in
an interview with the Michigan
Daily on Monday no search com-
mittee for his replacement has
been formed.

topped a large evergreen in the

hospital lobby with a gold star at
the Christmas tree lighting festi-
val on Tuesday, held to celebrate
the anniversary of the C.S. Mott
Children's and Von Voigtlander
Women's Hospital's first year of
operation in its new building.
This milestone commemo-
rates the completion of the
$754-million space for UMHS
faculty, patients and families.
Chris Dickinson, the hospital's

interim executive director, said
he has watched the expansion
of the hospital systems over the
past two decades.
"Personally, I've been work-
ing here as a pediatrician since
1984, and it's just nice to see the
building, the programs asso-
ciated with the building, the
people and more importantly
the patients and families really
be happy with a first class job,"

Dickinson said.
Since the hospital moved to
the new building, 32 physicians
in nine pediatric specialties
were hired and the nursing staff
increased by 23 percent, accord-
ing to a UMHS press release.
Additionally, the new building is
unique in that it houses the chil-
dren's and women's care facilities
under the same roof, Dickinson

your 'M' on the globe."
"A lot of times students go
abroad and they think, 'Oh, what

trip?"' Mott said. "And this kind
of does the opposite, which is,
'What can I bring to my experi-
ence? ... How can I literally bring

the spirit and passion of being a
Michigan Wolverine abroad?"'
Take UM Abroad will cost
slightly more than $5,000 when
