Traverse City senior, goes up for a reverse dunk in Rose Arena Tuesday Accounting department drops master's program by SANDRA K. WHTTE UFE Assistant News Editor The accounting department is dropping its master's degree program in hopes of receiving accreditation of its undergraduate programs. I Faculty baffled /Page 3A Accounting Department Chairman Philip Kintzele said the decision is based on a one-year deferral citing three reasons why the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) did not accredit the department's graduate program. The deferral was given to Leonard Plachta, dean of the school of Business Administration, at AACSB's annual conference in Dallas, Texas, April 11. "We must terminate the master's degree program — that is the implication we received from AACSB," Kintzele. professor of accounting, said. The school of Business Administration sought graduate program accreditation and undergra- "duate program reaccreditation from the prestigious accreditation agency, but it received a one-year deferral instead. As of May 1, no other applications will be accepted for the master's degree program. However, the termination wilt not affect people who are now in the program, he said. *We have started curricular proceedings to eliminate the master's degree program. It will not affect people currently in the program — they will be able to finish their degree." Kintzele said. Currently. 10 people are in the program, he said. "That number is quite small — that's one of the problems." Kintzele said. He said the accounting department is taking the news of the one-year deferral with a grain of salt. "(The department's) first choice would be to have accredita- tion of both programs, but AACSB is saying that Central is not in. a position to offer a master's program." Kintzele said. "Fn terms of my feelings and the feelings of my department, we would. . .rather have accreditation and no master's degree program than no accreditation and a master's degree program. "We anticipate receiving accreditation of the undergraduate program, presuming we eliminate the graduate program and successfully remedy the other Please See DROP Page 9A Academic Senate votes not to give excellence awards Reynolds might implement new reward system by BRYAN G. LAVIOLETTE MfE Stat) Wruei The Academic Senate voted Tuesday not to give Teacher Excellence Awards this semester, yet a possibility still remains of the University present the awards. In tabling a motion that would have "preserved" all the names of those nominated last fall for the honors, the A-Senate dropped its request it made to the Teacher Excellence Awards Committee to attempt to make the awards at May 7 commencement. But the awards still may be given if Acting Provost Janice Reynolds decides to implement a system that would not involve the A-Senate, A-Senate Chairman Francis Molson said. Reynolds was out of town Tuesday and could not be reached for comment. According to the Faculty Asso ciation 1987-90 Agreement, signed in the fall, any monetary awards must be administered by the A-Senate and approved by the FA and administration. R. William Dunham, assistant vice president for F'ersonnel and Employee Relations, said in a previous interview Reynolds wanted to continue the awards l>y malting them professional development awards, which is not a form of compensation. This could make the awards satisfy contract requirements. Sen. John Monahan said the A-Senate would F>e ill-advised to give the awards this spring because those who do not win the awards of the 14 still in contention, could file a lawsuit against the University and may Ik- supported by the union. "I think we're out of our minds if we pass this," said Monahan, associate professor of psychology. During the meeting. Monahan made a motion to forward the list of names nominated to the committee to be "evaluated separately" from other names of nominees that might be submitted next year. Sen. Eric Johnson, professor of history, motioned to delete "evaluate separately" from the original motion. The A-Senate approved the deletion. Sen. Robert Trullinger, director of the Institute for Personal and Career Development, motioned to table Monahan's motion because that would have the same effect as the amended motion. The Faculty Association voted Thursday-. not to accept the A-Senate's earlier recommendation to go ahead with the awards this year. After tFie FA took that action, Molson. professor of English, sent a memo to senators saying the first charge to the committee, involving picking award recipients for this semester, was "moot." The Teacher Excellence Awards Committee still will work on its second charge - - setting up a new Teacher Excellence Awards program for next year, however. Some senators said they now think the action the Senate took Please See AWARDS Page 9A Student fills Minority Affairs position by YVONNE C.
