Listing of faculty wages praised
Eleven of the 12 persons who called
the Daily Nebraskan office said, they
supported the publication of UNL
facult y mem bets', sa laries :irv. Monday's .
edition ' .
- The published list gave the salaries of
professors, associate professors, assis
tant professors and instructors as listed
in the University of Nebraska's 1974-75
Operating Budget.
Administrative salaries, dean's sala
ries and Extension Division salaries
were not included. The Daily Nebraskan,
received three calls requesting publica
tion of administrators' and athletic
department personnel salaries.
V fc v,l think that (those salaries) would
make very interesting reading, too,"
one faculty member's wife said.
"Glad you're doing a big article tc
clear this mess up," a member of the
Home Economics Dept. said.
" A faculty member's wife cailed the
publication of the salaries a "type of
honesty" that is "good." She said her
husband is very good in his field, but "it
doesn't pay to be good."
Some faculty salaries for professors, associate
professors, assistant professors and instructors,
particularly for the College of Agriculture and
University Libraries, are based on a 12-month
appointment, not a 9-month appointment as wa?
indicated in "UNL Faculty Salaries," (Daily
Nebraskan, Oct. 14). To obtain the salaries for a
9-month ' basis, multiply the figure given by
William S. Kramer, Pedodontics Dept. chair
man in the College of Dentistry, works full-time
for $30,000 a year, not part-time for $28,500 as
was inaicaiea in me nsi. y
Topic: leadership
ASUN conference
Interested UNL students are invited to attend the
ASUN-sponsored Student Leadership Conference
Thursday through Saturday, according to David
Howlett, ASUN second vice president.
The $33 registratior fees will be paid for UNL
students, until the money runs out, through a $25C0
grant from the UNL Student Alumni Assoc., Howlett
said. Students interested in attending the conference
should contact the ASUN office.
The conference will be divided into two sessions,
Howlett said. The first session, student leadership
skills, will be conducted by Student Leadership
Services, a national consulting firm, he said. The
second session, to be conducted by ASUN, will deal
with student issues, he said.
Issues to be discussed in the session include:
representation in student government; influence of
student government on state and local .politics;
communications within the university community;
structure of student government; funding of student
organizatons; and women, minorities and student
government, Howlett said.
About 80 persons from seven schools in six states will
participate in the conference, he said. States to db
represented are Iowa. Kansas, Illinois,- Nebraska, ,
Missouri and Colorado, he said. ) '
Originally, 350-400 schools received invitations to the
conference, Howlett said. Schools invited Included
vocational and technical schools as well as colleges and
universities, he said.
"It was just one of those things," Hewlett said
concerning the expected low attendence. The fact that
such conferences already have been conducted in ether
schools may explain the attendance, he said.
ASUN senators may or may not boost attendance, a?
a result of action taken at last Wednesday's meeting.
Senators amended a resolution which would require
them to attend certain presentations in the conference.
In the amended resolution, senators were "strongly
urged" to attend the conference.
