In an attempt to strengthen the Univ-
ersity's computer courses, a review
panel has recommended that the com-
puter and communication sciences
department merge with the electricial
and computer engineering department.
The merger would require the com-
puter and communication unit to leave
LSA and become part of the engineering
"THE MAIN recommendation is to
bring together in one faculty group a
major portion of the research and in-
struction on computers at the Univer-
sity," the report said.
No money savings are anticipated as
a result of the merger, according to
"(It's) an attempt to build a really
first class program in computer
engineering on this campus," said
James Duderstadt, dean of the
DUDERSTADT said the two
programs should have been combined a
long time ago. "It's been very artificial
that they've been separated on this
campus," he said.
Faculty members involved in the
merger feel it will help consolidate the
efforts of the two programs. "Outsiders
look upon our computer activity as too
scattered," said Keki Irani, an elec-
trical and computer engineering
"Thereare two groups of people that
should be working together," he said.
"There is strength in unity."
DUDERSTADT said both depar-
tments should benefit from the merger.
He expects it will reduce repetition
between the two units, and enable the
computer and communication sciences
unit to expand its facilites.
In its report, the College of
Engineering review panel stressed the
need to eliminate duplication and pool
the talents of the two units.
"EVERY EFFORT should be made
to get these faculty to collaborate

make room for the economics depar-.
Most faculty members support the
move and many said they are anxious:
to get out of the North Ingalls building,
formerly old St. Joseph's Hospital.
Although the old hospital gives the
department more office space than the
economics building provided, being far
from central campus has been a
problem. "We're about five blocks
away from the center of things, and it
makes a big difference," said Frank
Stafford, chairman of the department.
RENOVATIONS, scheduled to begin
this fall, will provide adequate office
space and put the department closer to
campus, said Stafford.
"It's ideal to get a high-traffic,
student-centered program in the center
of campus," Stafford said. "The old
