THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
The Daily Nebraskan attempted to
contact every student running for an
advisory board position in the April
30 spring election. Each candidate
was asked to briefly state his or her
plans and ideas.
Arts and Sciences Advisory Boards
Natural Sciences and Math. Stef
Lacey advocates the reducing of col
lege requirements especially for
underclared students. Requirements
should also be lessened for veterinary,
pre-medicine and pre-dental work.
Those students spend enough time in
school as it is, he said.
One specific improvement Lacey
favors is the addition of more
chemistry classes so students without
Inorganic chemistry experience may
still take chemistry.
Lacey is against violent demon-.
c t r a t i o n saying "Riots don't
actually accomplish what the students
want." He feels that student meetings
with the faculty would promote
understanding, but that students
themselves must initiate the action.
Ann Triba believes there should be
more communication between
teachers and students. Liaison
between advisory boards of different
colleges should also be improved, she
THE GRADING SYSTEM should be
reviewed, Miss Triba said. A poll
should be taken to determine attitudes
here, and systems at other universi
ties should be studied.
Miss Triba thinks that the students'
role in making decisions is not as
great as it should be. Students should
help decide changes in curriculum,
grades, rules and other things that
Tom Furta said there is a definite
lack of communication between the
advisory boards and the students.
"Advisory boards cannot be expected
to come up with ail the ideas for im
proving their college," he said.
Board meetings should be held in
living units to promote better com
munication, he continued.
Furtak believes students have a role
in expressing opinions through non
administrative channels. That can be
accomplished through the advisory
He would like to investigate a four
year honor program in which students
can choose their own programs. He
also advocates a four-year general
course in each department for non
majors. GROUP REQUIREMENTS also
should be investigated, Furtak said.
There is no time to be wasted on use
less requirements in college.
Patti Austin would like to see a
thorough examination of group re
quirements utilizing student and
"There is an Inconsistency in re
quiring, at the most, one course in
logic or mathematics, while the
language requirments will be fulfilled
when a student has completed the
fourth semester college course."
Also, Miss Austin would like to see
student representatives on every
committee, and conversly faculty on
all student committees. These
representatives should be allowed to
take an active part in committee
Candidate Don Stenberg could not
be reached for comment.
English: Janet White advocates ex
pansion of the pass-fail system and
the Independent study program. She
also believes the proveedure for
reviewing grades Is too complicated
and formidable: it should be revised.

hoard candidates dicuss plans, ideas
voice in decision making. The role
of the advisory boards is to advise.
The better our suggestions, the more
influence we wiU have," Miss White
Miss White said she is qualified for
an advisory board position because
of her interest and familiarity with
NU's student government.
Pam Whitted does not believe that
students should have complete
jurisdiction over the decision making
process. Students should work with
the faculty and the Board of Regents,
Miss Whitted said she doesn't have
any concrete proposals to offer at this
time, but she wants to become an
advisory board member and see what
can be done. Her experience with both
dormitories and sorities would benefit
the advisory boards, she said.
Jan Williams wants to improve the
college of Arts and Sciences by
relating it more to the, students.
STUDENTS IN THE college should
have the opportunity to talk to ad
visory board members, she said. Miss
Williams would like to work with the
faculty to secure better teachers for
freshman and sophomore courses. She
also advocates seminars and special
"People can't gripe unless they try
to change the situation." Miss
Williams said. "Most kids don't
realize the mountains that must be
climbed to overcome problems.
Students don't know what can be

Gottsohalk wants to continue the
reforms made in the registration pro
cess. She believes that students should
be informed on the rationale behind
"The language requirement, which
is bothersome and disgusting to some
people, should be re-evaluated," Miss
Gottschalk said. The science require
ment in Arts and Sciences should also
be investigated, she said.
THE ADVISORY BOARD should
help raise the caliber cf recruiting
On campus, she continued. The board
should try to find substantial op
portunities for people graduating with
liberal arts degrees.
Joseph Baldwin would like to stan
dardize the requirements for Arts and
Sciences. There is too much technical
and ambiguous language for re
quirements for majors and minors,

he said. Sometimes it's even hard to
get a college catalogue.
Sometimes, he added, students find
by their junior year that they must
spend time taking extra courses to
meet the requirements.
- Baldwin sees the student role in
decision making as a constant, but
nonviolent one. The students must
prod the administration and the
faculty to evaluate what is going on,
he said. Constant efforts should be
exerted to look for new and better
ways of doing things.
A DOUBLE MAJOR in journalism
and political science will help the
candidate make the board more ef
fective. Baldwin also cited his ex
perience with arts and sciences
courses as another qualification for
June Wagoner would try to increase
pass-fail courses so that someday all
Arts and Sciences students may take
their requirements on a p-f basis.
More individual latitude should be
given in other courses, she feels. All
requirements, especially language,
should be re-evaluated.
More and varied minors should be
offered in areas such as urban pro
blems, creative writing and com
munications, Miss Wagoner said.
Candidate Bill Smitherman could
not be reached for comment.
Social Sciences and Philosophy: Sara
Schweider feels that the importance
of the Advisory Boards depends on
the creative thinking done by its
"If people don't take the opportunity
to improve, they have no one to blame
but themselves for their failure," she
stated. "There are so many things
that could be done that peopleare
simply afraid to suggest."
Miss Schweider feels that interest
is her most important qualification
for the position. People who squawk
about the system don't see the chan
nels for change open to them, she
said. This is a perfect opportunity
to do something about it.
THERE IS TREMENDOUS poten
tial interest in the student body and
students are not apathetic. There
should also be more student control
over the curriculum. Students know
what they want from their education.

some of the faculty should also be

Jackson believes that students must
have more power in the decision
making process. He advocates a stu
dent member of the Board of Regents.
Many required courses could be

simply a waste of the students' time.

tion. Students should have a major

PAST ADVISORY BOARDS have
been weak, Pipher charged. A lot of
the problem is that communication
between board members and their
fellow students is lacking.
While not proposing any specific
changes, Pipher said he would like
to talk to students and get their ideas
as well as their reaction to board
"I have a sincere desire to com
munication with students and find out

Dave Filipi believes the advisory
boards can make education more
relevant to the student. His philosophy
and pre-medical studies acquaint him
with a wide variety of subject areas
and departmental techniques, thus
giving him experience for the position.
Filipi said, "Students at the
University can only express opinions
and hope that administrators listen.
Students cannot and should not
replace the administration, but the
two parties should work side by side
to make courses more relevent and
policies more agreeable."

Ellen Abart said that pass-fail
courses should be used to satisfy
group requirements for majors and
minors, she added.
Miss Abart advocates additional
departments such as an international

integrated, not segregated, she said.

would be increased, Miss Abart said,
