Wolff said she was especially inter-

complete support," she said.
McGowan also noted that the appoint-
ment of a woman to such a position is
very significant for the University.
"It's another important step on the
svay to gender equity," McGowan said.
Reflecting on his time as dean, Boylan

The School of Music has added many
majors during Boylan's term, including
media and music technology-related
studies, jazz and improvisational studies
and a musical theater department.
"We also brought all the performing
arts together in one school, which real-
ly benefits the students," Boylan said.
Boylan also said he believes thd
growth in the School of Music has
affected the entire University.
"More than thirty percent of the cred-

that it is a contradiction in terms to be
involved with tobacco companies.
"They are more harmful than any

Clifford Douglas, alum of English and
Law and a guest lecturer at the School of
Public Health, pointed out that tobacco is
a drug, unlike alcohol, ith no safe level
of consumption or usage.

the producer,' Douglas said. Moreove

and tobacco consumption.
Actions of other universities across the

stocks were referred to as well. Kelly
pointed out that Harvard, which recently
divested its stocks in tobacco continues
to do well with its endowment, while
Feingold said that John liopkins decided
