SPEAKERS ON CAMPUS
University
hosts event
for the arts
Symposium stresses
importance of arts at
research universities
By HILLARY BOK
Daily Staff Reporter
The University's ArtsEngine
- a collaboration among the Col-
lege of Engineering, Taubman
College of Architecture and Urban
Planning, School of Art & Design,
School of Music, Theatre & Dance
and University Libraries - held
a symposium Wednesday and
Thursday to encourage a closer
relationship between the arts and
sciences.
The conference brought
together professionals in higher
education from major research
universities as well as business
leaders and artists from across the
nation to forge a plan to promote
and implement programs that
foster interdisciplinary creative
endeavors at research universi-
ties.
University President Mary
Sue Coleman opened the event
and said that research universities
have been central to her career as
a scientist and an administrator.
Coleman, who received her doc-
toral degree in biochemistry from
the University of North Carolina,
said academics often construct
barriers between disciplines that
can limit collaboration in univer-
sities.
"These barriers limit how well
we can take advantage of the many
academic strengths that exist
within our universities," she said.
"We are limiting our potential for
real synergies and that lessens our
impact as research institutions."
Coleman added that creating

DPS Overight
Committee offers
policy suggestions
By BRIENNE PRUSAK
Managing News Editor
The Department of Pub-
lic Safety Oversight Commit-
tee released a public report on
Friday stating that non-tenured
University faculty member Dr.
Andrei Borisov's resignation was
not handled properly by DPS.

The report was drafted to
examine the ways in which DPS
dealt with Borisov's case and
to suggest how the department
can improve their practices to
prevent future grievances and
errors. This is the first time the
DPS Oversight Committee has
published a public report in the
past decade, if ever, according to
University spokeswoman Kelly
Cunningham.
After accusing a co-research-
er of scientific misconduct,
Borisov was asked to resign by
the chair of the Department of

Pediatrics on Sept. 4, 2008, after
working for the University for 14
years.
According to the report,
after Borisov signed his letter of
resignation, two officers asked
Borisov to clean out his office
without instruction from the
chair of Borisov's department.
The officers' suspicion that Bor-
isov was taking property from
the office that didn't belong to
him led to a physical alterca-
tion, which resulted in Borisov's
arrest.
