Engin. dean faces issues

(Continued from Pae 1)
THECOLLEGE'S present sponsored research fund
is 18 million, but Duderstadt believes it can increase
by more than 50 percent in the next two to three years
if the University policies would change."
Duderstadt said that some faculty members are
"going off campus, startin small rivate com-

panies, and getting the same research contracts but
without this bureaucracy."
"What we're after right now, from the University,
is the incentives, the freedom," Duderstadt said.
THE NEW DEAN said he was worried about the
isolation many engineering students feel from the
rest of the student population. This isolation is
historically based, Duderstadt said, with its origin in
the totally independent engineering program. "And I
don't think the move to North Campus is going to help
that," he said.

"It's a hell of a mess up there," he said.
FIREMEN worked at the scene until
5:15 p.m., as the wood underneath the
roof shingles continued to burn and
smolder after the-fire was under con-

ready for the first new coat of paint:

ANOTHER house in the campus area
buret recently, leaving it
uninhabitable, according to Assistant
Fire Chief Henry Mallory. The fire
department received a call Wednesday
night reporting a fire at 745 Packard,
Mallory said.
The fire started in the bathroom on
the first floor, then burnt through to the
outside of the house, he said. There was
heavy damage done to the first floor
bathroom and kitchen and extensive
smoke damage to the upstairs.
The fire was under control at 10:39 SP
p.m., Mallory said, seven minutes after
it was reported.
The cause is still under investigation,
but arson has been ruled out.
Daily staff writer Ann Marie Fazio a
filed a report fat this story.

sity's North Campus was made in the early 1950s, but
has been continually postponed, he said. The most
recent setback was the state's failure to supply $20
million that was promised. "Inflation has meant that
that $20 million has now turned into probably $40
million," Duderstadt said. -
THE DEAN ALSO said that the move is not popular
among faculty. "If we could ter down East and West
Engin and build two new laboratories on central
campus, that would be preferable, because our ties

PLANS ARE TO create an extraordinary library.
"We look at this library as ... an ability for us to do
some pioneering work in establishing what we call a
'technical information center.' "This center is to in-
clude computer access to library materials, a sof-
tware library, and information services. External
funding of $3 million to $4 million is being sought for
the library.
Duderstadt says he believes the University
engineering student still gets a quality education, but
that it is "on the borderline." He does, however, ex-
pect policy changes to bring improvements. "I sense
a strong commitment on the part of Shapiro and
(Vice President for Academic Affairs) Billy Frye,"
he said.
Duderstadt said he will look at the college as
though it were a private institution. "Things are
going to change around here, but I hope they change
in the way students and faculty want them to

Also to be moved is the Engineering-
Transportation library-the largest in the coun-
try-now located in the Undergraduate Library.
Because of lack of funds, though, the library will not
have its own building, but will move into existing
