From today’s University Record:
> 51 people at the Institute for Social Research lost their jobs, victims of a contraction in federal research spending.
> The Record’s LEO headline:“Lecturers vote in favor of employee organization” I suppose ‘union’ was too strong a word.
>The Regents approved a schematic design for a new engineering and computer science building.
> The corner of Washtenaw and Huron (by Couzens hall) will be closed for two upcoming weekends so the pedestrian bridge that will connect the LSI complex with the Medical Campus can be installed.
> The sculpure “Bundle” near the U-M school of Music will be removed and ground into woodchips this summer.
> The office-space shuffle continues with the renovation of the LSA building.
