Dean of University Libraries Jeff Luzius was fired April 4 after Central Michigan University received multiple sexual harassment complaints regarding his behavior — one of which was found to violate school policy. On April 5, Associate Dean of University Libraries Kathy Irwin was promoted to dean of University Libraries. No reason for Luzius’ departure was given in the announcement from University Communications. Through a public records request, Central Michigan Life received a copy of Luzius’ personnel file on April 10. The Michigan Freedom of Information Act request is heavily redacted, however, and large parts

of the narrative about what Luzius is accused of doing and/ or saying has been removed. The university’s Office of General Counsel claims information about the sexual harassment complaints was removed from the report because “it would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of privacy (personal addresses, banking and financial information, other intimate and embarrassing information) and is thus exempt from disclosure.” In addition, two records were completely withheld from the request. According to the Office of General Counsel, the records are exempt from disclosure because the documents “are education records as defined by the family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and disclosure of them would violate FERPA.”

The 1974 federal law protects the privacy of student education records. Public records show university officials attempted to address Luzius’ behavior while he was acting in his capacity as dean for 13 months. What the public records also show, though the documents lack important details, is erratic behavior involving drinking and approaching female colleagues at a downtown Lansing bar following the first day of an October 2017 conference Luzius was attending as dean. In Provost Michael Gealt’s April 4 letter terminating Luzius’ employment, the provost said he met with Luzius on Aug. 23, 2017 to “discuss the findings and recommendations presented by the Office of Civil Rights and Institutional Equity (OCRIE) that

followed from their investigation of a complaint about (Luzius’) behavior at a local tavern.” Gealt also stated in his termination letter OCRIE made him aware of two other cases since their August meeting that Luzius “behaved in an entirely unprofessional manner while acting in (his) capacity as the Dean of CMU Libraries, and on one of these two occasions, the investigation by OCRIE found that (his) behavior constituted a violation of the university’s Sexual Harassment protocol.”

INVESTIGATING COMPLAINTS Luzius began his tenure at CMU on March 1, 2017 with a salary of $170,000. A May 2017 investigation was conducted by OCRIE after it received a sexual harassment

complaint against him. On July 26, 2017, OCRIE Executive Director Katherine Lasher wrote to Luzius to let him know her office cleared him. Gealt met with Luzius in August 2017 to conduct his annual performance review and discuss his behavior. Gealt said in an email he sent to Associate Vice President of Human Resources Lori Hella that Luzius assured him that type of behavior would not happen again. OCRIE did not find any violation of university policy, Gealt wrote, but the provost made clear while he did not receive “an official censure, it is expected that nothing like this will happen again.” On Nov. 22, 2017, Gealt wrote to Luzius to inform him of a complaint received from staff at the Midwest Collaborative Library Services

(MCLS) about his “behavior at a recent conference.” The provost said Luzius is to not attend any conferences and not communicate with MCLS, saying communication with the organization should be handled by Irwin. A week later, Luzius was notified by OCRIE that a complaint had been filed against him alleging he “engaged in prohibited harassment in violation of (university) protocol.” According to the complaint, Luzius attended the annual Michigan Library Association (MLA) conference Oct. 18-20, 2017 in downtown Lansing. After the conclusion of the first day, three women — all employees of the MCLS who attended the conference — w LUZIUS | 8

CMU given failing grade in transparency during SPJ FOIA audit By Raquel Mance Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

When it comes to the transparency of Mid-American Conference schools regarding on-campus sexual assault, Central Michigan University came up short. This is just one of the findings CMU’s Society of Professional Journalists revealed during their 2018 Freedom of Information Act audit April 12. CMU is among the few schools that failed. In February, SPJ sent out FOIA requests to all schools within the MAC. In the requests, SPJ asked for all incident reports relating to sexual assault, harassment and violence. They also requested arrest records as well as policies and guidelines officers must follow when dealing with potential victims.

all of the requested information. However, the information that was given was deemed A-worthy, Alvord said. All schools that received an E grading either failed to send any requested information or outright denied the request. Eastern Michigan University was the only Michigan school to receive a passing grade. Graded with a C, EMU is the only school that required a payment for the requested information — totaling up to $313.36 — and did not inform SPJ of the documents being sent. EMU responded within five days and their final response was given within 16 additional days. CMU was the only school to outright deny the request. The university claimed the personal nature of the documents and their potential to reveal “embarrassing and intimate details” is an invasion of privacy. When asked

The goal of this audit was to see how MAC schools reacted to the FOIA requests and how much information each school would give. SPJ gave each school a letter grade between A-E based on how quickly they responded and on the information given. Out of the 12 schools, four received an A, one received a B, four received a C and three received an E. On April 12, SPJ shared their discoveries with the public. Students and faculty members gathered together in Moore Hall room 105 to discuss these findings. SPJ President Patricia Alvord presented the FOIA results and discussed the importance of FOIA transparency. “The public and I deserve to know the dangers we may face as students on a college campus,” Alvord said. Grade A schools did not provide

about requested guidelines and policies, the FOIA response stated “there are no responsive documents,” though did include two PowerPoint presentations from the CMU Police Department with comparable information. WMU was the other Michigan School to receive an E. Replying in eight days, WMU responded by saying SPJ revised their request to only wanting statistical information. Upon receiving that response, SPJ replied back stating there was no revision and the originally requested information was still wanted. “We asked them, like everyone else, what we were looking for,” Alvord said. “We replied (to WMU) saying we didn’t reject this and we do want the actual police reports. We heard nothing else.” The event also included a panel,

moderated by journalism faculty member Ed Simpson. The panel included journalism department chair Tim Boudreau, Central Michigan Life editor-in-chief Jordyn Hermani and Emily Jones, vice president of the Organization of Women Leaders. While discussing the comment of “embarrassing and intimate details,” Jones was not impressed with CMU’s response. “To me, (the comment) just seems like another way to blame the victim for the assault instead of taking accountability and responsibility for handling the assault and perpetrator,” Jones said. Dexter sophomore Kayleigh McCarthy attended the SPJ FOIA audit and was disappointed in how the findings reflected on her university of choice. “I thought it is really important to share that CMU is not as open

TO THE NEW SGA LEADERS: Congratulations on your win — now let's get to work

T

o the members of our new Student Government Association administration: Well done. Traverse City junior Jake Hendricks and Nashville sophomore Lyndi Rose will, respectively, serve as SGA president and vice president for the 2018-19 academic year. The two ran on a platform that hopes to put a spotlight on community engagement from groups both on and off campus by fostering relationships with the city and with Greek Life, encouraging student voting by continuing to host voter registration drives, building a stronger SGA cabinet and more. We understand the job is not easy. On a campus of slightly more than 18,000 students, there’s a lot to consider when getting every student engaged — not to mention the Mount Pleasant community as well. As a student-led, student-focused publication, we believe you want to foster relationships and open communication between multiple groups of people at CMU. We want to help you make this possible. That can be done by helping us. Here’s how: 1. Utilize us. We are the largest on-campus publication, and since The Morning Sun no longer works out of Mount Pleasant, we are the largest local news organization in the community. Let us help you get the word out on things by sending in columns or letters to the editor. Need feedback from students on a piece of legislation? Want people to know about a town hall related to issues the community is passionate about? Write to us.

EDITORIAL

Quinn Kirby | Staff Reporter Traverse City junior Jake Hendricks and Nashville sophomore Lyndi Rose pose for a photo in the Bovee University Center Auditorium on March 18.

Let us publish your message and help get the word out. 2. Let us cover you. SGA can be confusing for some students who don’t quite understand either what it does or the benefits it offers to students. By allow-

ing us to cover the SGA, you are allowing us to shine light on a subject a student might suddenly find they are passionate about or give them the necessary information to get involved. Doing our work and thoroughly can only

result in good things for both the SGA and CMU students. 3. Read our stories, our editorials, our coverage. Over the past several years of covering the SGA, we’ve seen time and time again that there seems to

be a disconnect between Central Michigan Life and members of the current administration. This doesn’t make sense to us. We’re all students working toward the same goal of bettering CMU and keeping students informed of the

world around them. Sometimes though, we’re left scratching our heads at legislation pushed through the SGA, which seems to be expedited for the sole purpose of introducing legislation. If you’re looking for issues to be addressed, issues that students and Mount Pleasant residents care about — look no further than this publication. We’re your almanac for the wants and needs of both the campus and the city. We’re a resource. We’re here to help you. In turn, by reading our coverage and identifying things that students and residents want, by turning that into positive change, it gives us more things to cover as well. It’s a win-win: for both the SGA and CM Life, as well as those who will benefit from your legislative actions, town halls and more. In the next few days, we’ll be announcing some staffing changes of our own. On Monday, we will be appointing a new editor-in-chief, and throughout the week, a number of other editor positions at CM Life as well. We’re hoping as both of our organizations turn a new page in leadership roles, we can work cohesively to make positive community action a reality. We are one campus. We are one city. It works best for everyone when we continue to work that way. Congratulations again to Hendricks and Rose for their win. We hope to see big things from both of you and the administration you put together.

Millennials must become more involved in voting Millennials are on the brink of becoming the generation with the largest population in the nation, with more influence on the country’s economy and government than any other living generation. There’s just one major issue with that — we have the lowest voter turnout of all generations. According to the Pew Research Center, Millennials (defined in 2016 as those aged 18-35) will surpass the Baby Boomers (those aged 52-70) as the nation’s largest generation in 2019. As the aging generation slowly decreases, the Millennial generation will grow to a whopping 73 million. If there are so many of us, why do so few Millennials vote? As also reported by the PRC, Millennials have continuously had the lowest voter turnout among generations in presidential elections. In the 2012 election, 46 percent of eligible Millennials voted — compared to the 69 percent of Baby Boomers, and 72 percent of those aged 71 and older. In November 2016, I was the only one in my group of friends to vote in the presidential election. In fact, according to the PRC, I was among the mere 34 million Millennials who voted in the 2016 election — only 49 percent of

the generation. While Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton received a larger share of Millennial votes in the election than President Donald Trump, it is possible she could have won the presidency if more Millennials had shown up to the polls — 55 percent of Millennials identify themselves as Democrats or Liberals, according to the PRC. After the outcome of the election, I angrily began to ask why my friends and so many others in my generation refused to vote. The answer I heard from almost every single person I asked was, “I didn’t think either candidate was a good choice.” As someone who wasn’t personally thrilled with the personas and policies of Clinton or Trump, I can almost sympathize with this point of view. However, we had significant power over who became the two final candidates through the primary elections, and we didn’t

utilize that power enough. The Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning (CIRCLE) estimated in April of 2016 that roughly 4.4 million Millennials showed up to vote in the 2016 primaries. Of those voters, more than 2 million cast their votes for Bernie Sanders. Less than 1.6 million Millennials voted for Clinton and Trump combined. Sanders had enormous support and popularity among young people, and he might have won if more Millennials had shown up to the primaries. Unfortunately, a great deal of people my age weren’t even aware of the power the primaries offer us, and we were stuck with two candidates who hardly gave any notice to the issues and policies our generation cares about. Another reason a lot of my friends have given me for not voting is they don’t believe the outcome of the election will make much of a difference in their lives. This could not be less accurate. As the older generations continue to age and (die out), Millennials will be the ones most impacted by the current decisions of our government. Millennials will be the ones responsible for reversing climate change, and facing

the consequences of having a president who adamantly does not believe in climate change. Millennials will also be held responsible for repairing our damaged relationships with foreign countries, among many other problems our nation is facing. Polling for the Michigan state elections will open November 2018. Millennials have another chance to choose our political leadership, as well as being able to vote on a number of ground-breaking issues that will directly impact their lives, like the legalization of recreational marijuana. The exact measures are still being decided, but according to Bridge Magazine, one of the popular measures that could likely be on the ballot in November is the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, which would essentially legalize recreational marijuana for those 21 and older. Michigan voters also might have the opportunity to vote for increased minimum wage and paid sick leave, among other imperative issues. In the November 2018 election, exercise your right to choose lawmakers and legislation who reflect your ideals and hopes. Make it heard — Millennials have the loudest voice in the nation.

CMU’s lack of transparency is disappointing and harmful As someone who plans to dedicate their professional career to the field of journalism, knowing I attend a university that takes extraordinary measures to conceal the scope of sexual crimes on its campus is disheartening. As someone whose life has been scarred by the same kinds of sexual violence I now report on, Central Michigan University’s lack of transparency is terrifying. Beginning Feb. 15 and culminating April 12, my colleagues in CMU’s chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists have been compiling an audit regarding the prevalence of sexual assault in the schools comprising the Mid-American Conference. To do this, SPJ sent Freedom of Information Act requests to all 12 schools in the MAC asking for copies of all incident reports and arrest records relating to cases of sexual assault, sexual misconduct, sexual harassment and sexual violence on campus between Aug. 15, 2016 and Feb. 1, 2018. The choice to target the MAC was a calculated one. Knowing that FOIA regulations change from state-to-state, we aimed to illuminate the differences in transpar-

ency between the five states represented in the MAC — Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and New York. The responses to the requests were predictably varied and can be viewed by visiting our website. One thing worthy of attention, however, is that all three schools in Michigan targeted in the audit — CMU, Western Michigan University and Eastern Michigan University — came up short compared to their counterparts throughout the Midwest. The fact Michigan falls short under the harsh light of FOIA isn’t surprising, nor is it an isolated occurrence. According to a 2015 study by the Center for Public Integrity and Global Integrity, Michigan ranks the lowest among all other states in the nation in terms of transparency under open records laws.

CMU was particularly egregious in its response. The university refused to provide any records whatsoever, citing the personal nature of such documents and the threat they posed to reveal “embarrassing and intimate details” about the victims. No other university had this kind of response. Six of the schools targeted in the audit — University of Akron, Ball State University, Miami University, University of Toledo, Northern Illinois University and Bowling Green State — all gave the requested documents to varying degrees of thoroughness. Some of the documents were heavily redacted and/or unhelpfully organized, but the information was there. Even the two other schools in Michigan — WMU and EMU — both of which found their own unique loopholes to avoid releasing the requested information, didn’t outright deny the requests. CMU might just be the least transparent university in the least transparent state in the nation. As noble as the sentiment of denying FOIA to protect the identity and safety of

sexual violence victims may be on its face, neither the university nor its students benefit from the act of hiding the prevalence of sexual crimes on its campus. As someone who has experienced sexual violence under the roof of a CMU residence hall — someone who would later attempt suicide as an indirect response of that experience — I can call out CMU’s aversion to FOIA for what it is: an attempt to stifle a journalistic inquiry that threatens the school’s image. The example set by other universities included in the audit isn’t flawless, but it sets a precedent CMU could learn from. The solution is simple but the difference it makes is substantial. By redacting names and other potentially revealing content from police reports, a university can still offer insight on the size and scope of sexual violence on campus without compromising the identity of the victims. CMU’s decision to hide behind the assumption that sexual assault victims would suffer from inclusion in a FOIA result is disingenuous, and an insult to the people it pretends to protect.

One of the employees had met Luzius in his role as dean of University Libraries, the complaint states. What was Luzuis accused of saying or doing?

Luzius allegedly “walked away from the table for a period of time before returning.” What happened after he returned to the table was also eliminated from the document. “MCLS expressed concern about its business relationship with CMU because of this interaction,” the complaint stated. “MCLS described CMU as an important client.” On March 14, Luzius was notified by OCRIE that its investigation into the October incident was complete.

Williamson to conduct last concert April 17 By Rob Linsley Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

On Feb. 21, 2017, Symphonic Wind Ensemble Director John Williamson was faced with a challenge: conducting the world premiere of David Maslanka’s Concerto No. 3 for piano and wind ensemble. Maslanka was in attendance for the performance at Staples Family Concert Hall. No one had ever heard the piece. Williamson didn’t know how the revered composer wanted the piece to be performed. It had to be perfect. When the Symphonic Wind Ensemble and piano soloist Alexandra Mascolo-David finished the piece, the hall was filled with dead silence. After several moments, Williamson looked to Mascolo-David as if to ask, “Is this OK?” Williamson’s eyes moved toward Maslanka. The composer was on stage sobbing, unable to speak and overcome at the beautiful sound of his work performed live. This was one of the many memories Williamson will take with him into retirement after 39 years at CMU. He will conduct the Symphonic Wind Ensemble one last time

in a free concert at 7:30 p.m. April 17 at Staples Family Concert Hall. Williamson has been at CMU since 1979, but he and his wife Karen will soon be living near the mountains in a suburb outside Phoenix. Williamson, CMU’s director of Bands, is not sure if he will conduct anywhere else. “That part is kind of a mystery,” he said. But Williamson will always treasure the decades he’s spent at CMU. Every concert is “special” to him, he said. As a high school band conductor in the suburbs of northwest Chicago, Williamson received offers from colleges before. But he turned them all down. When CMU had an opening available, Williamson said it felt far more compelling. The campus was “unusually friendly,” he said. He conducted the ensemble and has turned down every new offer since. Williamson attributes the success of the wind ensemble to his high standards. He conducts the band not as a student ensemble, Williamson said, but as a professional ensemble. “Whatever your standards are, that’s what the group’s standards are,” Williamson said.

Hunter McLaren | Staff Photographer Director of Bands John Williamson speaks about his experience at Central Michigan University and his retirement on April 9 in the Music Building.

Associate Professor of Bands James Batcheller believes Williamson’s high standards are his greatest strength. “(Williamson’s) exacting standards are as high for himself as for his students,” Batcheller said. “He takes great care to design every rehearsal to maximize student achievement.” Corey Jahlas, a graduate conducting student, said Williamson’s passion for music is contagious. “(Williamson) makes sure the people who graduate from his program are ready to go out and make music with the

same fire that he does,” Jahlas said. “When you play for

him, you’re not making music because you have a concert. You’re making music because it’s important to make music.” Homer senior Chris Marvil said a musician once suddenly started walking off stage during a performance since he didn’t have anything left to play — but the piece wasn’t over yet. “Williamson’s eyes were burning a hole through him,” Marvil said. But afterward, Williamson took on a conciliatory tone. “It’s fine. We’re all a freshman at one point,” Marvil remembered Williamson saying. “And you’ll be a freshman forever in our eyes.” Williamson was also known for his hospitality, Batcheller said.

“(The Williamsons) are exceedingly generous in opening their home — to friends, colleagues, and often students who are stranded over the holidays — for amazing feasts,” Batcheller said. “Still, on every one of those occasions, Williamson finds an opportunity to jokingly thank everyone for coming so he can have a home cooked meal.” In his nearly 40 years at the university, Williamson has fostered excellence, Batcheller said, adding that Williamson’s colleagues across the country are now helping however they can in finding a successor. “It speaks volumes that we’ve had only two people in that job since World War II,” Batcheller said.

tudent entrepreneurs competed for more than $90,000 and received feedback from professionals at the eighth annual New Venture Competition on April 13. A total of 32 teams and more than 70 judges participated in the competition, which comprised three rounds plus a pitch competition. The New Venture Competition has helped CMU students launch their ventures since its inception, awarding more than $530,000 to help 52 student-led ventures over the last seven years, said Executive Director of CMU’s Entrepreneurship Department Bruce Marble. The event, which, took place in the Education and Human Services Building, awarded $94,000 in cash prizes to the most impressive student ventures. College of Business Administration Dean Charles Crespy said the ideas put on display at this year’s competition are driving the future. “These kids are going to change the face of Michigan,” Crespy said. “A lot of these ideas I think will be the products and services that Michiganders buy for decades to come.”

Haley Rusicka and Emily Austin, members of Team Elemental Co. LLC, graduated from CMU in May 2017, but participated in the New Venture Competition this year — winning $30,000 for Best Overall Venture. Elemental Co. LLC is a venture that creates thermal bras, specifically for breast cancer survivors who have gone through a mastectomy. Rusicka and Austin, who were helped by fellow team members Agusta Overy and Susanne Wroblewski, also participated in the New Venture Competition last year. They felt the experience from last year contributed to this year’s win, Austin said. “There’s such a difference from where we were last year to where we are this year,” Austin said. “Every time that we pitch, every time we do something, there’s something that we learn.” Austin said the group is in a much better position to reach its goals because of this award. The group’s first step is to finishing the rest of its manufacturing development with the money earned from the competition. The other top awards include: • RateGigs, a mobile app that allows

content creators with the tools to be able to connect locally and nationally. “I’ve known that I’ve wanted to create this app for about two or three years now, but when I explain this app to people who are much older than myself, they don’t get it,” Turner said. “My goal was to be clear.” Marble has helped run the New Venture Competition for the past four years. He said students who participate in the New Venture Competition leave with valuable feedback, networking contacts and investment partners. “I think everybody takes away something,” Marble said. “What the teams get varies across the whole spectrum, but everybody takes something away.” Marble also gave advice to young

entrepreneurs who have an idea, but are unsure if they should join the New Venture Competition in the future. “If you think you have an idea don’t just think about it,” Marble said. “Take action.” One of the groups that took action was Resin, a medical marijuana dispensary with a twist. Instead of just having the conventional waiting room and bud room like other dispensaries, Resin would also feature another room that includes a kitchen in which customers will be able to create their own gourmet food infused with however much THC and CBD they want. Novi senior Nolan Schied has had the idea for Resin for a while now, and with the help of his partner Northville junior Natalie Wiest, decided to bring it to the New Venture Competition.

Schied said at first, he was unsure if his idea would be accepted at the competition, but that everyone was very helpful and supportive. “(New Venture Competition event coordinators) were completely welcoming about it and invited me right in,” Schied said. “It’s definitely been a great experience and I made a lot of good connections.” Melanie Kalmar, vice president and CIO of The Dow Chemical Co., was one of the judges at this year’s competition. She said teams need passion to impress her. “One of the things I was looking for was the passion (in students),” Kalmar said. “You can tell when somebody’s talking about something if they’re really passionate about it and if they really believe in their idea.”

Free ride-sharing app comes to campus By Raquel Mance Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

Central Michigan University is one of the first schools in Michigan to have Tip Whip, a ride-sharing app, circulating on campus. Tip Whip is the first ridesharing app made specifically for college students with no set ride fees. The app was created in 2014 on the University of Maine’s campus and is slowly making its way to schools across the country. Spencer Wood, CEO of Tip Whip, wanted to create something that was cheaper than competing companies, but could still allow college students to make a little money,

“Tip Whip is an app like Uber or Lyft – but instead of having fairs where you have to pay, you only tip your driver” EMILEE WARREN

said Emilee Warren, Tip Whip campus manager at CMU. “Tip Whip is an app like Uber or Lyft — but instead of having fairs where you have to pay, you only tip your driver,” said Warren, a Flushing junior. “This makes it cheaper than Uber because there are no serge fees, where if everyone is demanding a ride, drivers can charge more.” There are two separate apps: one for drivers and one for those being driven. Users of both apps must be CMU students and have

a valid CMU email to sign up or register to be a driver. The app is only available to college students Warren said. Before becoming a driver, students must answer a series of questions and undergo a background check conducted by Tip Whip. After that, their cars must meet certain criteria before they can take assignments. Car criteria includes: • Four working seat belts • Proof of insurance • Proof of registration

• Valid license plate The application process takes at least one full business day to complete. Students must be 18 years or older to become a driver. On the main app, all students must do is type in where they want to go and select a tip amount. The tipping page also shows how much other ride sharing services would charge. There is an option to select a specific driver, but most drivers are assigned according to proximity. Once a driver is assigned, students get text messages verifying and updating them on the location of their ride. For those looking to be picked up, green cars on the app represent drivers in their area. All rides are to be within the Mount Pleasant city limit and available anytime throughout the day. Macomb sophomore Kristina Slifco called the app ingenious. “It’s a more trusting version of a taxi,” Slifco said. “As much as college students have the reputation of not tipping, many of us survive off of tips and are more than willing to give back to others.” Drivers not only get to keep their tips, but also receive a weekly check from sponsors. Sponsors give money to the Tip Whip corporation to distribute

to drivers, Warren said. This ensures that if students do not get tipped for driving they still get paid. As of right now, CMU sponsors are unknown, but previous big-name sponsors include Red Bull and McDonalds.

CMU athletics focused on football revenue through attendance By Dylan Goetz Sports Editor sports@cm-life.com

With all Saturday home football games next season, head coach John Bonamego hopes to see the stands in Kelly/ Shorts Stadium filled with fans. To him, a stadium full of people means high attendance, which brings energy and enthusiasm. The business side of Central Michigan’s athletics department values that stadium full of people a little differently – they see fans and revenue. It’s ticket sales, concessions, Tshirts, parking costs and more. Despite not having games televised on ESPN or another network, a typical Saturday game gives CMU the opportunity to earn money for the program, said Craig Willey, deputy athletic

director/external operations. “Our focus is really on how we can put as many people in that stadium as possible to create a competitive, electric game day environment,” he said. “Then, on top of that, generate as much revenue as we possibly can through ticket sales.” To the business side of the athletics department, attendance brings in dollars through ticket sales and also helps ensure it meets a mandatory Division I attendance requirement. The NCAA mandates that every Division I institution must perform an internal audit and report its attendance numbers by Feb. 15. Universities can choose to submit “actual” or “paid” attendance numbers, according to NCAA bylaws. Since 2013, CMU has chosen to submit paid attendance num-

bers to reach the requirement of 15,000 people. “Attendance is our top priority, but revenue generation is a key component to that,” Willey said. “Those revenue streams are critical to the growth, sustainability and success of our athletic teams.” If a university does not reach 15,000 people in attendance on average for one season, the team can still meet the requirement in the next season, because the requirement is on a two-year rolling basis. Universities that don’t meet the 15,000 requirement could face penalties, including being stripped of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) status. However, there is little evidence of any Division I universities facing this penalty. For the full story, go online at cm-life.com.

Underwood leads softball in home runs with power hitting average — good for No. 4 in the Mid-American Conference. She also boasts the second-best slugging percentage (.787) while being tied for seventh in the conference with seven home runs. “I had to bring back my confidence in college ball because I lost it all when I first got here,” Underwood said. “I’ve gained it back now.” Head coach Margo Jonker said she isn’t surprised by Underwood’s power surge at the plate this season. It is why the team recruited Underwood. “I anticipated she would come into her own. It was just a matter of how long it would take,” Jonker said. “She needed to take a step back mentally and the physical game would come right with it.” Underwood initially struggled to hit at the college level because other teams scout her — something that didn’t happen often in high school. “When teams have scouting reports on you, it gives them an immediate advantage,” Underwood said. “You have to become

Power hitting has been Erika Underwood’s identity since she first stepped into the batter’s box. From playing at Addison High School, to summer and travel leagues, Underwood has always viewed herself a player who can drive the ball over the fence. Now she’s doing it at the Division I level and leading her team in the home run category. “It’s not really anything new,” Underwood said of her teamhigh batting numbers. The junior first baseman leads the Central Michigan softball team with seven home runs — four more than anyone else on the team. Outside of Under-

box and not second guessing myself has helped a lot.” As a freshman, the Pittsford native only played in 17 games and didn’t hit a single home run. In 2017, she tied for the team lead with five home runs in 50 games played. Now as a junior, she’s surpassed that total in only 34 games. She leads the team with a .438 batting

good at your worst pitch, which I’ve done a lot better recently to become the hitter I am this year.” Senior catcher Maison Kalina thinks Underwood’s hitting brings energy to the team. “It’s really easy for the team to rally around her with big hits,” Kalina said. “She’s such a great player and person outside of the softball field. It’s great to have her around as a power hitter and teammate.” Underwood always tries to keep the same approach at the plate, but sometimes batting superstitions can mess with a player’s mind. For her, it’s sometimes her hairstyle. “If you don’t hit well one game, you change your hair or maybe even right after an atbat,” Underwood said. With the way she’s hitting right now, Underwood wants to keep everything the same so she can keep getting runs for her team, she said. Regardless of the routine or superstition, Underwood is statistically having her best season as a Chippewa in the batter’s box.

Sophomore right-handed pitcher on bullpen: ‘We are getting better’ By Evan Petzold Staff Reporter sports@cm-life.com

Central Michigan baseball’s bullpen has pitched 145.2 innings this season — and allowed 121 runs. Sophomore right-handed pitcher Cameron Brown, one of the bullpen members, said it needs to improve going forward. One issue the bullpen has is that most pitchers were starters in high school. They aren’t used to throwing in relief. “We are getting better,” Brown said. “We have a lot of guys in the bullpen who haven’t been here in their career. There’s a learning curve and guys are adjusting.” The reason behind the learning curve from a starter

to bullpen pitcher is the mentality, he said. Brown and other relievers need to continue developing a “killer instinct” on the hill, he said. “When you start a game, it’s your game,” Brown said. “If you get in a jam, you can settle in. Coming out of the bullpen, it’s a tight situation and you have to have it under control right away.” Sometimes, relief pitchers are put in tough situations due to the point of the game when they are brought in, Brown said. Head coach Steve Jaksa said he is still trying to figure out which way to use individual pitchers out of the bullpen because of player inconsistencies. Even though the season is halfway over, Jaksa is still working out pitching situations to succeed. “If you’re good for three games and then you’re not good for three, it’s very difficult for me to grab you and put you in there every time,” Jaksa said. “I need to know what I’m going to get out of them in the bullpen, then I know how to use them.” Along with the learning curve, Brown said being consistent is difficult because every situation out of the bullpen is different. “Consistency in the bullpen is pretty hard, but it makes a

good reliever,” he said. “It’s what everyone is working to do. The harder you work, the more you will pitch.” For example, starters may be able to get away with walking a batter in a tight situations, but relievers do not have the same freedom, Brown said. In the eyes of starter and junior right-handed pitcher Michael Brettell, consistency is the most important aspect for a pitcher to focus on. “It’s a mentality thing,” Brettell said. “Hitters can go 0-for-3 one game, but guess what? You’ve got a game tomorrow. It’s the same for pitchers. You have to know you are here for a reason. It’s

why you are playing Division I baseball.” This season, Brown is 1-1 with a 7.25 earned run average

in 22.1 innings. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound thrower has issued 16 strikeouts and eight walks. Statistically, CMU’s bullpen

is led by freshman lefty Brandon Reed. He has put together a 1.69 ERA with 17 strikeouts in 10.2 innings of work. “We have some (good) guys, other guys (that are) close and then we have some guys that are just up and down,” Jaksa said. “They need to get themselves consistent. It doesn’t mean their stuff is bad, it just means they walk too many guys.” For a reliever, Jaksa claims walks “are the kiss of death.” On the positive side, he has just less than half the regular season to clean up the bullpen and push for a Mid-American Conference title. “We have to get a consistent bullpen with guys healthy,” Jaksa said. “Once that is figured out, we will find out the best spots for them.”
