Education School gets new dean

(SEPTEMBER 14,1983):
CarliBerger was named the new
dean of the School of Education
amid a round of steep budget cuts
to the major.
Berger, formerly the assistant
dean, was selected to replace
former dean Joan Stark after an
18-month review process. Berg-
er was slated to work a three-
year term before a nationwide
search for a long-term replace-
ment was held.
Budgetary changes were
made to focus on graduate
rather than undergraduate pro-
grams and re-allocating funds
to focus more on research than
producing teachers.

Costolo talks to Ross students

Twitter CEO
discusses his time
at the University
Daily StaffReporter
While students at the business
school were given 100-million
reasons to be happy earlier this
week, Twitter CEO and University
alum Dick Costolo gave them one
more when he participated in the
semester's first fireside chat via
live video feed.
Costolo, who is best known
for his role as the top executive
of Twitter, graduated from the
University in 1985. He went
on to work in consulting and
the technology sector - and
even did a stint in improv
with Second City - before
founding Feedburner, a web
feed management software
company that was later sold to
Google. Costolo briefly worked
for Google before becoming
joining Twitter in 2009 and
becoming interim CEO in 2010

- a role which later evolved into
a permanent position.
Costolo discussed his time at the
University, sharing stories about
his experiences as a fraternity
brother, a stand-up comedian, a
computer-science major, as well as
the creation of Twitter.
"I think of Twitter as this global
town square," Costolo said.
He added that character limit
placed on tweets allows for a
sense of "honesty" regarding
national and international
"That's part of the beauty
of the 140 characters is that
you don't have the sensation
of drafting two paragraphs to
make sure everything is 'just
so,' " he said. "The 140 character
constraint enables you to be real
time and more conversational
and authentic."
He also joked about the
time-consuming nature of the
application as it functions for
many simultaneously as a social
media channel and a news outlet.
"Once you become a core
user of Twitter, it becomes

indispensable to you," he said.
"People talk all the time about
gettingaddictedto Twitter -but
I prefer the term indispensable."
The session was then opened
up to the audience, who asked
their questions via the hashtag
Questions ranged from "name
three singers on your iPod"
(Biggie, Katy Perry, and Lady
Gaga) to name three functions of a
stapler without staples (a hammer,
ameasuringstick, and aprojectile)
When asked for his favorite
thing about the University,
Costolo referenced the feeling of
"humility" despite the school's

because she hopes to get into the

"I don't know much about
Twitter as an organization but
I'm really interested in how you
take an initial idea and make it
into something commercially
viable," she said. "Engineering is
very academic and very narrowly
focused and very different than

grand opening
Daily StaffReporter
Ribbons were cut and
renovations unveiled Friday at
the Veterans' Affairs Ann Arbor
Healthcare System on Fuller
Road, which celebrated the
creation of two state-of-the-art
medical units: a new emergency
department and an inpatient
telemetry unit for military
Congressman John D.
Dingell, a WWII veteran, and
Congressman Tim Walberg
joined the gathering of veterans,
hospital employees, volunteers
and more than 150 others to
celebrate the opening of the
30,000-square-foot space.
Dingell said the renovations
were an important project to
ensure that veterans receive
proper care after serving their
"The purpose is to see to it
that the VA hospital system
continues to meet the high
standards that we want the VA

to provide for our veterans in
this superb hospital system,"
Dingell said.
Derek Atkinson, a Marine
Corps veteran and a public
affairs officer at the Department
of Veterans Affairs, opened the
event by introducing invocation
speaker, Chaplain Roland
Schaedig, for a moment of prayer.
Robert P. McDivitt, director
of the VA Ann Arbor Health-
care System and an Army
veteran, said the hospital's
additions are meant to "honor
America's veterans" for the
sacrifices that they've made
for the country.
The VA Ann Arbor Healthcare
System has served more than
60,000 veterans since opening
in 1953.
The renovations are meant
to improve patient access
to quality care. The project,
funded by the American
Recovery and Reinvestment
Act of 2009, cost roughly $6.3
million and took about two
years to complete.
"From where we are coming
from to where we are going,
it's just a completely new world
for veterans," clinical nurse
manager Shannon Asperger said.
The current telemetry unit,
which staff said lacked privacy,
will transfer its patients to the

new unit on Sept. 18. The new
unit allows for higher occupan-
cy - adding eight beds to a total
of 28. The new emergency room
department, which is set to open
Sept. 10, will have 18 beds.
Giuseppe V. Del Giudice, who
works in the hospital's eye clinic
and served four years in the
Navy as a hospital corpsman,
said the new additions show for-
ward thinking on the part of the
Department of Veterans Affairs.
"It's a good contrast to see
old and new," Del Giudice said.
"I think that's important for
the community to see - the
He added: "It's like any
ER you'd see at U of M or any
major big hospital. That's the
unbelievable part."
