"There are good reasons to do it and good reasons not to do it," said Dr. Michael Benedik, a professor in biochemistry and advisory committee member. Professors opposed to combining the two schools argues that the merging of both departments' faculty members would be a problem, Benedik said. Professors had different teaching philosophies and might not be comfortable giving up their present curriculum, he said. 'T m still torn (over) whether joining the two departments is a good idea or a bad idea," Benedik said. The six-member committee, composed of two professors from biology, biochemistry and chemistry, made the restructuring recommendations to Dean Dr. Robert Bear, Benedik said. -Karen Snelling LAW NATURAL SCIENCE & MATHEMATICS 308 Academics Colleges 309
