The Maroon A Loyola Tradition Since 1923 "For a greater Loyola" www.LoyolaMaroon.con fdfsdfgsdfg | V 01.90 No. 1 1 I AM: PRO CHOICE PRO LIFE Some students unhappy with one voice Despite differences in student beliefs, there remains no endorsed abortion rights club on campus Last year, though, two seniors proposed an abortion rights club, Voices for Choices, but Student Government Association denied the charter. "We thought that since Loyola is an institution of higher learning that they would be open minded to having both sides of the coin represented. Apparently we were wrong," said Ashley Nesbitt, A'll, who, along with Tori Buckley, A'll, spearheaded the idea of an abortion rights group. According to Michael Morin, SGA president By JAMIE FLTTRAL Assistant News Editor As student organizations discussed women's reproductive rights at a panel last month, one organization was left out—an abortion rights club. and music education senior, the charter was denied because it is incompatible with the mission, goals and values of the university. "As a Jesuit Catholic university, we adopt the teachings and beliefs of the church, and on the topic of life, we (the university) are pro-life," he said. "After the organization was denied in the SGA court, they appealed directly to the Office of Student Affairs, which supported the decision of the court to deny them recognition as an official Loyola tenured faculty stabilize at 75 percent By MASAKO HIRSCH The Maroon When Jonathan Peterson was applying for a position as a philosophy professor at Loyola, he said he was attracted to how the department was collegial, the students were engaging and the classes were small. Unlike his previous position at another university, Loyola also offered another incentive: the chance at tenure. "This is a tenure-track job, which is a very attractive thing since it's a much more stable form of employment," he said. Peterson is among the 22 new, full-time faculty the university hired this year. With these hires, Loyola continues to carefully work to balance its number of tenure and non-tenure track faculty. For several years, Loyola has moved toward a faculty makeup of 75 percent tenured and tenure-track and 25 percent non-tenure-track According to Ed Kvet, provost and vice president of Academic Affairs, both types of faculty are important to the university. Tenure, however, which has been an institution of American higher education, is disappearing from universities nationwide. The number of tenured and tenure-track faculty is plummeting. While they once made up the majority, they now comprise less than one-third of fulltime professional staff, according to a 2010 U.S. Department of Education report. According to Loyola's faculty handbook, tenure signifies that a faculty member has become a "foil and permanent" part of the university who cannot be terminated BUT WHY SHOULD WE CARE?

The old library, now known as the Tom Benson Jesuit Center, is what Kurt Bindewald, director of University Ministry, described as "at a standstill." He said they are currently waiting for a definite response from the contractor about the cost estimates for the renovation plans. Though waiting for the cost estimator is a roadblock to renovations of the building, fundraising is also a challenge. The estimated cost for the renovation is expected to run around $12 million to $18 million. The building will be privately funded with the option of using bonds. However, bonds cannot fund religious areas of the building. "Bond financing involves selling bonds to obtain the capital to fund construction," said Leon Mathes, associate vice president of Financial Affairs. Tax-exempt bonds cannot be used for religious purposes owing to IRS regulations." "Bond investors do not incur income tax liability from the interest income earned from tax-exempt bonds. It has not been determined if bond financing will be used to finance the construction," he said. "Since the building will not be 100 percent religious purposed, some mix of taxable and tax-exempt bond financing is an option." Bindewald said he thinks having the building split between religious and academic qualities is important. "This Ls what makes this building so unique. For the fact that it is both religious and non-religious," Bindewald said. Tom Benson's commitment of $8 million will be distributed in phases of the renovation, so the spending will not happen all at once. As of now, University Ministry officials know they will have to raise additional money for the center. Bindewald said the chapel is the most attractive part of the building and will hopefully be an incentive see ABORTION, page 4 see TENURE, page 4 see CENTER, page 4 It you can't take , the heat, stay out of Lite & Times Psfl® 5 The administration no longer uwpei the abortion-rights segment of the student championship body, simply because they disagree with remembers the dead one element of Catholic teaching.
