final report on general education
By Kip Fry
UNL students should be given the
chance to learn about the problems of
contemporary society which would most
apply to their jobs after graduation,
according to the final report of the
Chancellor's Commission of General
Liberal Education, distributed at the
April meeting of the UNL Faculty Senate
General education is defined by the
report as promoting the understanding
of a broad area of knowledge, whereas
liberal education develops attitudes,
- thought processes, and basic abilities
r expected from an educated person.
"As a comprehensive research uni
versity, UNL should develop a general
education that is as up-to-date and
innovative as its specialized degree
and research and other creative pro
grams," the report said.
The report said that general educa
tion should: be integrative and develop

Husker park planned
for land near stadium
By Lee Rood
Nebraska football fans and area
businesses soon will be able to buy
their own space in "Cornhusker Park,"
a recreational and parking area to be
constructed a block west of Memorial
Stadium, developers say.
The Longview Development Corp. in
Savanna, Ga., recently bought 12.8
acres near the stadium from the Chi
cago and North Western Transporta
tion Co. and the Missouri Railroad.
Harry Kitchen, vice president of
Longview Development, said construc
tion will begin soon on three of the
acres to build a two-story pavilion and
a 195-space luxury parking project
suitable for tailgate parties on football
Kitchen said Husker fans can pur
chase spaces for $10,900 each. For that
price, owners can bring one vehicle and
up to eight people into the park to
socialize before and after the game.
Twenty-five letters-of-intent to buy
spaces already have been signed, Kit

In dissent, Sen. Louis Leviticus, pro
fessor of agricultural engineering, said
that because the senate hasn't seen
the resolution, "we really don't know
what we're talking about."
In other business, a motion was
passed that woud create a committee
to study the effectiveness of the senate
because it has difficulty dealing with
issues that come through committees.
Kitchen said he expects about 60
percent of the spaces to be bought by
individuals and the rest by area busi

officials haven't decided whether to
