Central Michigan LIFE Vol.67 No 9 1984 CM UFE 10 pa rcs Mount Pleasant. Mich 48859 Monday. September 17,1984 Health department seeks reappointments bySHERRYYAEK UFE Ass't. News Editor Directors of the Health Fitness Program who resigned in May are to be reappointed and the program is to be placed under the jurisdiction of the Center for Medicine and Science in Sports, contingent upon provost approval. Those recommendations were approved during a Health Education and Health Science department meeting Friday, said Tim Bolen, who is director of the Cardiac Rehabilitation division of the program until Friday. The recommendations were part of a reorganizational proposal submitted to department faculty members by chairman Richard Hardy. Hardy could not be reached for comment. "If the program is going to do well, then this is positive . . I think the program could do well there," Bolen. HES instructor. said. Bolen gave not ice of his resignat ion as director last week. "Therebasically wasn't room for me," Bolen said. Richard Parr and Gordon Schultz, both HES professors, were recommended for re-appointment as directors of the program's three divisions, despite their resignations from that position in May. "I think it's time that we get the program working again," Parr said. He had no other comments about the reappointment recommendation. It has always been a problem with the program being in an academic department. Parr said. Because the program has patients in need of medical attention and patients paying for exercise programs, it should be in a non-academic area, he said. Shultz could not be reached for comment. The Center for Medicine and Science is under jurisdiction of University Health Services, Parr said. That means UHS direc tor Ed Brown will be in charge of the programs. Brown said he had not been contacted by anyone from the department and was therefore unaware of the recommendations. "They haven't discussed it with me. . . I don't know what they have in mind." Brow n said. Provost John Cantelon and William Theunissen, dean of the School of Health and Human Services, attended lhe early part of the meeting until recommendations were exchanged. Both said they were unawareof final recommendations Cantelon said he and James Hill, vice president for Student Affairs, will have final say in the matter, subject to the president and Board of Trustees. Parr and Schultz said in May they resigned because of denial of an administrative position addition and a decision to put the program under control of tlie HES department, giving control to the department chairman Six injured in car accident The second two-car accident within a week at M-20and Lincoln injured six people early Saturday morning.
