The University Record, September 11, 2000

For the record . . .

The sponsorship of two programs covered in the Sept. 5 issue was reported incorrectly. The New Faculty Orientation program, “New faculty challenged to ‘redefine’ U,” was co-sponsored by the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) and the Office of the Provost. In addition, combining Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint, there are 462 faculty new to the U-M this year. Of that, 140 attended the orientation program.

The program for graduate student instructors, “GSIs get tips on their trade,” was sponsored by CRLT. In addition, to clarify, CRLT provides mid-term student feedback for instructors who request that service. The Evaluations & Examinations Office provides end-of-course student ratings.

In the article about salmon in Idaho, “Heat, dams, fires threaten Pacific Northwest salmon,” the Dworshak Dam shown in the photo is on the Clearwater River, not on the Snake River and is constructed so that fish cannot pass it. The Lower Granite Dam, which is on the Snake River, does allow fish to pass but they risk being caught in the turbines.
