Matina Horner named DeRoy Visiting Prof of Honors
Matina Souretis Horner, former president of Radcliffe College, will be the Helen L. DeRoy Visiting Professor of Honors at the U-M in the winter term.
The DeRoy visiting professorship was established in 1981 to support the University’s Honors Program in LS&A.
Horner will teach a six-week mini-course focusing on the multiple socioeconomic and political issues that influence the quality and delivery of health care in contemporary America.
Horner was president of Radcliffe College in 1972–88. She now is executive vice-president of the TIAA-CREF Health and Retirement Benefits Corp.
Gold granted emeritus status
Psychology Prof. Martin G. Gold was given the emeritus title.
“Prof. Gold made important scientific contributions to the scholarship on adolescence, and in particular, on delinquency among adolescents,” the Regents noted. “His national epidemiological studies establishing the incidence and prevalence of delinquency and documenting that delinquency cuts across social class groups are classics in the field. Prof. Gold’s research on prevention and treatment of delinquency is also widely respected for its methodological and theoretical sophistication and practical import.
“In pursuing the social and cultural experiences that prevent delinquent behaviors, Prof. Gold has noted the significance of schools. His work details the influence and especially the critical impact of integrating less successful students into school life.” Gold was named research assistant in 1953 and a study director in the Institute for Social Research in 1961. He became professor in 1979.
North Campus roadway improvement program OK’d
The first phase of a roadway improvement program for the North Campus was approved.
“The first phase will involve work on McIntyre, including the intersections of Hayward and Hubbard,” Vice President Farris W. Womack said. The repair, estimated to cost $370,000, will be done during the summer.
“Since the majority of streets and roadways on the North Campus were constructed during the late 1950s and the early 1960s, a point has been reached where a major repair and replacement program will be required,” Womack said.
“A recent survey has identified work, estimated to cost approximately $1,360,000, that must be accomplished in the next few years. Since this project cannot be funded in a single year, the work will be phased as plant and other funding can be identified.”
Monts’ appointment approved
Lester P. Monts, professor of ethnomusicology and a dean of undergraduate affairs at the University of California, Santa Barbara, has been appointed vice provost for academic and multicultural affairs. The appointment is effective July 1. He also will serve as professor of music, with tenure.
