Criminal justice dept.
an extension of UNO
For 440 criminal justice majors at UNL, graduation ceremonies
will be 50 miles away at the University of Nebraska at Omaha
Fred llolbert, vice chairman of the UNL Criminal Justice Dept.
said the department is an extension of UNO and students are
required to graduate at UNO.
Holbert called the UNL Criminal Justice Dept. an "island" of
UNO. He said this was the first UNO department to open an
extension at UNL. " . ,
The original UNO Criminal Justice Dept. began in 1962 when a
few law enforcement courses were offered.
In 1968 the UNO department sent instructors to Lincoln to
teach UNL criminal justice students, he said.
Professors hired in 1971
It wasn't until 1971, Holbert said, that two full-time professors
were hired to teach criminal justice at UNL.
Holbert said UNL now has four full-time professors and four
part-time instructors. He said UNO has four full-time professors
and 10 part-time instructors.
Holbert, a UNL graduate with a master's degree in educational
psychology, said he reports to Hubert Locke at UNO, as does Jim
Kane, vice chairman of the UNO criminal justice dept.
He said problems begin when "I try to stay within the rules of
both campuses." In a conflict, he said he must comply with UNO
Holbert said criminal justice, public administration and social
-welfare are all part of the UNO College of Public Affairs and
Community Services. All three areas, Holbert said, have UNL
Bachelor of science
He said a criminal justice major receives a bachelor of science
degree after completion of 125 semester hours of credit and a
student may major in either law enforcement or corrections.
A minimum of 30 of the 36 credit hours must be earned in
residence in criminal justice, he said. llolbert said students must
take at least 12 hours in one of the major fields in UNL courses
and not less than 39 credit hours must be earned in upper level
courses, numbered 300 or above. 15 of those hours must be taken
in criminal justice courses, he said.
Holbert said it also is possible to obtain an associate degree in
criminal justice which, he said, requires 64 hours of credit.
He said for an associate degree 18 of the last 20 hours must be
taken in residence at UNL as a criminal justice major.
Last semester, Holbert said, there were 568 individual
registrations for criminal justice courses; "203 ol those who
registered for courses were not criminal justice majors.
He said many students in political science, sociology and
journalism take elective courses in criminal justice.
Holbert said UNO pays his salary and he's vice chairman of a
UNL department whose chairman is at UNO.
Union spent $2,400
An estimated $2,400 from the Union Program Council's (UPC)
regular budget was spent on the Winter Walpurgisnacht, according
to Suzanne Brown, assistant union director in charge of
Income from the activities had not been tabulated as of
Tuesday, but Brown said the Union "might very well have broken
even." The program council members thought they would lose
about $800, she said.
Entertainment expenses totaled $1,555. "Card Shark" and
magician Jack Pyle took the largest chunk-he received $700 for
his three performances.
The rock group Stonewall charged $400, Bluegrass Crusade
$150, Bohemian Stationary Marching Band polka group $40 and
films cost $265.
Bills from the University Printing and Duplicating Service have
not yet been sent, but Brown estimated that nearly $850 was spent
on publicity which included advertisements, artwork, buttons and
"It was a success in terms of the crowd we attracted but, more
important, in terms of the response we received," Brown said. "I
haven't heard any negative comments; it seems like everyone had a
Brown credited the success to the variety of events that were
offered during the evening and through the early morning hours.
She declined to estimate how many attended, but initial reports
indicated between 6,000 and 9,000 persons did.
"One of our purposes was to bring faculty, staff and students
together and I think we were pretty successful," Brown said. "We
didn't publicize in the outside community, but we welcomed
Brown said the UPC hopes to make Walpurgisnacht an annual
event. Possible improvements will be studied after the UPC
evaluates this year's festivities, but Brown said she doesn't
anticipate a scheduling change.
"Three weeks after the beginning of the semester seems to be a
good time. Although you can't avoid having any conflicts, there
seem to be less at this time of year," Brown said.
Brown said the programming committees are "eager to have
input" concerning Walpurgisnacht.
