Four universities considering
Westen for tenure-track jobs

HAC to announce
results of petitions

by Garrick Wang
Daily Staff Reporter
Yes, it's true. Adjunct Assistant
Psychology Prof. Drew Westen
gave his last lecture as a University
instructor last Thursday.
"I think Michigan is a terrific
university. It has been a pleasure and
a privilege to teach here," Westen
said.
He told his final Psychology 172
lecture group that Adelphi, Duke,
Harvard, and Rutgers Universities
are "seriously considering" him for
an associate professor position. He
emphasized that none of the institu-
tions has formally offered him a
job.
"I'm interested in these pro-
grams because of the atmosphere of
the four places and their superb clin-
ical psychology programs," Westen
said.
He added that he will stay in
Ann Arbor, expand his private prac-
tice, and write an abnormal psy-
chology textbook if he does not re-
ceive an offer. _.
Students who attended Westen's

last lecture expressed both sadness
and praise.
"I was sad to see him go, espe-
cially for the (Psychology 172)
classes that come after mine," said
Suzanne Yesta, an LSA first-year
student. "They won't be able to
have the opportunity to experience
his teaching methods which I
thought were excellent.
"I hope that I can have another
professor like Drew Westen," she
added.
Westen will officially leave the
University when his contract ex-
pires July 1. He is leaving because of
an unwritten department hiring
practice which discourages granting
tenure-track positions to faculty
earing University doctorates.
"I never expected to be offered
tenure here because I got my Ph.D.
here and had expected to have to
leave to be promoted to associate
professor," Westen said. He added
that he was told explicitly of the
policy by the chair of the
Psychology department when he
was hired in 1985.

Westen's research was not a fac-
tor in the department's decision-
deny him a tenure-track position. He
has written two books and 40 pa-
pers.
Doctoral graduates not on the
tenure-track are hired as an adjunct
or visiting assistant professor, lec-
turer, or instructor. Their positions
are temporary, under contracts
which must be renewed annually.
John Cross, LSA Associate Dean
for Academic Appointments, said
recently that granting assistant pro-
fessorships to doctoral graduates
would imply that they were on a
tenure-track.
Colleen Dolan-Greene, assistant
vice president for faculty personnel,
said it's a common practice at re-
search universities for Ph.D. gradu-
ates to not stay and work in the de-
partment from which they earned
their degree. She added that most
doctoral graduates interested in a
permanent University position usu-
ally take a job at another institution
for a few years and then come back.
"I think it's a sensible rule ... if

Westen
the rule is applied flexibly and
fairly, I think it's largely in the best
interest in the University," Westen
said. "I'm sure there are probably
cases in which this tenure rule is
less beneficial."
The "flexible" policy regarding
tenure-track positions is utilized at
the College of Engineering. The
school has placed three doctoral
graduates into assistant professor
positions since 1987.
Dolan-Greene said Engineering's
hiring policy is consistent with the
University's current reexamination
of the tenure issue.

After 45 days of distributing pe-
titions, seeking supporters, and gar-
nering signatures, the Homeless
Action Committee (HAC) will re-
lease its tally today of a petition
drive to put the Kline's parking
structure on a city-wide ballot ref-
erendum.
HAC members would not re-
lease an estimate last night, but said
they will announce their results at 4
p.m. today at the Ann Arbor Inn.
"I have to decline comment be-
cause we've got a whole bunch of
stuff planned (Monday) after-
noon," said HAC member Jeri
Schneider, an Ann Arbor resident.
This referendum would ask the
citizens of Ann Arbor whether or
not to approve the bonds which
would fund the $10 million struc-
ture.
The city council approved the
sale of the bonds March 4 by an 8-3
vote. But HAC members, who feel
the money could be better spent on

low income housing, organized a pe-
tition drive against the project.
To place the proposal on the bal-
lot, the city charter requires 7,860
signatures - 10 percent of Ann
Arbor's registered voters - 45 days
after the bond approval was posted
in TheAnn Arbor News.
But even if HAC succeeds in
putting the structure on the ballot,
there are still many citizens who
want the structure built.
"Even if this does go to a vote,
there's no guarantee we would
win," said City Councilmember
Robert Eckstein (D-Fifth Ward),
who signed the petition.
"The forces that want the lot
have a lot of power and a lot of
money, and would be able to get
their position across quite effec-
tively," he said.
Thesproposed structure is cur-
rently supported by many down-
town merchants, including the Main
Street Area Association.

Forum examines real-life

results of Engler

'S

social

service budget reductions

by Bethany Robertson
Daily Government Reporter
Michigan lawmakers can toss numbers
around all they want, but a forum sponsored
Saturday by the School of Social Work exam-
ined how 9.2 percent cuts to social services are
affecting real people, particularly in
Washtenaw County.
Valerie Ackerman, of the Beacon Day
Treatment Center, described the plight of one
mother of an emotionally impaired son. After
a 17 percent cut in her monthly welfare check,
the woman could no longer afford to feed the
family pets.
"She already let the fish die. She let the
gerbils out. 'How do I tell my kids we have to
let the dog go?' she wanted to know,"
Ackerman said. The dog was the little boy's
only friend.
"These are the kind of tragedies everyone's
had to endure," said Ackerman, a former city
council candidate.
Keynote speaker Pat Sorenson, of the
Michigan League for Human Services, de-
scribed a "radical reshaping of state govern-
ment." Last December, state lawmakers ap-
proved a 9.2 percent cuts to all state programs
except education. After taking office in
January, Gov. John Engler proposed an alter-

estimated $1 billion deficit. by $530 million
this year, $243 million of which would be
taken from the Department of Social Services,
Sorenson said. Negotiations have slowed as
legislators begin to discuss next year's bud-
get.
"They're just staring each other in the eye
and nobody's blinking," Sorenson said. "There

block under proposed
Engler budget plan
by Joshua Meckler
Governor John Engler's cuts in the state
budget mean a lot to student volunteers and
project coordinators who are involved in an
elderly persons program at the University.
The Nursing Home Enrichment project,
which is run out of the University Hospital's
Turner Geriatric Services, will be completely
cut Sept. 30.
The state-funded project, which began in
1987, involves student volunteers and Turner

Hundreds of women march through the streets of Ann Arbor Saturday night in the 12th annual "Take Back the Night" rally.
Women feel 'exhilaration' taking back the night

"Whatever we wear, wherever we go,
yes means yes, and no means no," cried
Elise Bryant, head of the Common
Ground Theater Troupe, to commence

As a part of Rape Prevention Month,

women if they could get away with it."
Every three minutes a woman is raped
and every 15 seconds a woman is bat-

In spite of these bleak statistics, the

and the possibility of change.

which sexual assault does not exist.
"That world is not going to happen un-

the crowd. "Sexual assault has changed
