Financial problems have contributed
to the lowest faculty morale he has seen in
his 10 years at UNL.
"Every gain we have made in 10 years is
gone," he said.
Although student concern seems to have
been centered on faculty salaries, students
have been hurt more than faculty by low
budgets, he said. Low budgets lead to the
resignation of the university's best faculty
members, inadequate laboratory
equipment, and the elimination of small,
specialized classes, he said.
The result is a sort of "psychic
poisoning," Lynch said.
Lynch also said the central administra
tion should be dissolved because it
duplicates many of the services of the UNL
administration and has directed the regents
to inadequately divide. the budget among
the three NU campuses.'
He cited figures showing that from fiscal
1970-71 to fiscal 1979-80, UNL's state
general fund appropriations have increased
12S percent, compared to a 224 percent
increase for UNQ, a 314 percent increase
for the NU Medical Center, and an 835
percentv increase for the NU central
UNL already has its own administration
and can't afford a second , he said ,
Elimination of the systems structure is
the first step to restoring a healthy
university budget, Lynch said.
Although he doesn't want to embarrass
the university, Lynch said he will continue
to agitate for change after the Arts and
Sciences faculty considers the resolution.
Unless action is taken soon, it may be
too late to solve UNL's financial problems,
'The university is in some ways a
creature that suffers from a dietary
deficiency. Long before he is dead, he's
dead and doesn't know it," Lynch said.'
Work-study students urged
to work more before break
Work-study students should work ex.
tra hours before Christmas to make up
for the time they might have worked
during the university closing, Dec. 24 to
Jan. 4, according to' the director of
scholarships and financial aids.
Don Aripoli said the closing cuts 40
to 48 working hours for students who
planned on earning money for spring
semester. However, work-study students
can earn the extra money anytime
becaiTse it has been guaranteed as part
of their financial aid program.
Of the 1,000 students on work,
study, Aripoli said the closing would
affect only 30 to 40 because most
students plan to go home during the
holiday. But students who live in
Lincoln might ordinarily want to work
during the break.
"Students who work six to seven
hours extra over the next six weeks can
earn the money they would have earned
if we were open during the holiday
break," Aripoli noted.'
Although working extra now might
pose a burden to some students, Aripoli
said they could work at times when
their class load is less, such as dead week
and finals week.
The director also recommended
putting in more hours during spring
semester. But the drawback in waiting
until spring is that the students won't
have the cash in the beginning, he said.
