the teachers and students who work with her in the English Depart ment this fact is causing a great deal of distress Besides teaching a variety of courses ranging from Medieval Literature to Advanced Composition Professor Dunlap whom many students knew as c Professor has designed I and coordinated the English tutoring program over past year According to students s tutors and teachers who use program She has singlehandedly made it a smooth professional adjunct to the 101 and 102 mandatory Freshman writing courses The English Department tutoring program as Professor DUnlap has designed it is a model for departmental tutoring systems in general and an example fo the ef ficient use of students in the teaching of writing Tutors are trained in weekly seminars to deal knowledgeably with the

this system allows teachers tutors and students to use the tutoring fun to its maximum capacity The Hart Report a document outlining the longterm needs and goals of the University the im of a

amount of lime considered reasonable is not stated in the personnel document Sources have indicated however that bet ween two and five years is a reasonable time period Although Professor Dunlap took longer than usual amount of time completing her degree work she was allowed no time between degree completion and tenure review Upon receiving a tenure refusal a candidate is allowed according to

not count According to sources confusion over the application of personnel policy concerning tenure year designation arose because the policy was being changed at the time Professor Dunlap was being reviewed Under the old policy no time allowance was stipulated for teachers to publish after com the terminal degree The old policy however also weighed heavily in granting tenure awards Professor Dunlap has asked that the year she is to be evaluated be redesignated Redesignation would not grant her tenure but would sim ply assign her review to a later date Because of the policy change over and because her recent work greatly modifies her academic profile Professor Dunlap feels a new tenure year is justified in her case Last semester her redesignation request was turned down by the Dean of
