Adding student members to the Board of
Regents is a major goal of ASUN's Legislative
Liaison Committee this year, according to
committee chairman Bob O'Neal.
Legislative Liaison plans to recommend that
the Legislature add three students student
body presidents from each of the University's
campuses to the Board of Regents, according
to a committee report.
Each student would have a one-third vote
and would serve a one-year term on the Board.
O'Neal said his committee studied governing
board structures of about 1 1 universities that
have student regents.
The committee also plans to ask UNO and
the University Medical Center for
recommendations on adding student members
to the Board of Regents, O'Neal added.
According to the committee report, the
recommendation for student regents was based
on the Harris Amendment to the Higher
Education Act of 1970. The amendment states
that college governing boards should include at
least one full student member chosen or
approved by students.
"We're doing research to see if adding a
student member (to the Board of Regents)
requires a constitutional amendment or just a
piece of legislation," O'Neal said.
If a constitutional amendment is required,
have to appear on the 1974 election ballot, he
said. Otherwise, the proposal only needs,
approval by a majority of legislators.
"It's going to be a real fight. We'll have to do
quite a bit of persuading before the idea (of a
student regent) is even accepted," O'Neal said.
"But if nothing else, we will have brought
the idea out in the limelight," he added.
Other Legislative Liaison activities include
working with the Student Affairs Office and
the Residence Hall Association to prepare
student questionnaires about liquor on campus.
O'Neal said his committee planned to take
action on the liquor issue after studying student
Legislative Liaison also is studying student
fee allocation plans at Big Eight schools "just in
case the issue comes before the Legislature
The ASUN committee also plans to work
with the Legislative Budget Committee to "see
that student priorities are considered in the
University budget," according to O'Neal.

possible concentrations. Students in linguistics are encouraged

"well-motivated students" with an opportunity to follow their
intellectual interests in as many ways as the student finds
desirable. The student will have a concentration in a particular
field combined with supervised independent study and

academic goals related either to general education or to career
