about 100 hearing- and sight-impaired
students each week. The Earkley trust,
created in the 1940s, support the cen
ter and other programs. The building
itself, dedicated in 1976, was enlarged
la 1986. Reasons for the health and
growth of the center include state and
federal support and the Barkley fund
"Without the Barkley fund, we would
be grossly underfunded," said Director
John Bernthal. "What we are trying to
do demands a lot of additional funding."
The center programs developed and
grew in the wake of a 1975 bill that
enabled all handicapped students to
have the right to a public education,
Stephanie Crays, a sophomore spe
cial education and elementary educa
tion major, said that her introduction
to special education class has exposed
her .to many different special-needs
students, from the sight- and hearing
impaired to the "gifted."
This department, a graduate pro
gram, offers the state's only program
designed to prepare students for school
; The department currently has 865
graduate students and 1 1 staff members.
But not all students are taking classes,'

weeks are elibible donors, : ;
so the ratio is misleading, a depart
ment spokesperson said.
Among the students are some Aus
tralians. Robert Stalcup, professor and
chairman of educational administra
tion, said he would like to see more
international involvement in the pro
gram, but currently the exchanges are
mostly v.ith Australians.
Center for Curriculum and In
struction Curriculum and Instruction, located
in Henzlik Hall, was created when two
elementary and secondary education
programs were combined in the late
. "The integration of the two has been
very smooth and still is continuing,"
said James Walter, chairman of the div
ision. "People from both groups are
working together to make our program
' C and I operates a nationally recog
nized student teaching program, which
benefits both undergraduates and high
school students, Walter said. Sievers
said the students are academically
strong, but the college also has an out
standing, experienced and mature staff.
"Every teacher in this college has, at
one time, taught in a public school,"
she said. "They know how to:prepare a
student because they have dealt with
public education first hand."
Department of Vocational and
Vocational and Adult Education dif
fers slightly from other departments.
For example, business education pre
pares business teachers, but also pre
pares them for the business world, Joe
kel said. Students may be trained as
administrative secretaries cr profes
sional office managers, he said. Other
program areas include health occupa
tions, industrial occupations, market
ing education, special vocational needs,
training and development, and voca
Gordon Culver, director of business
education, said all students In the
department must have an internship.
"I think interns and courses we pro
vide, ... the way we provide them,
build strong relations between the
students and the college," Culver said.
Educational Psychology, located in
Seaton Hall, opens students' minds to
what is in kids' minds, Crays said. Stu
dents learn the impact people and
objects have on children. Jill Novak, a
junior elementary education mor, said
educational psychology is important
because of the learning process a stu
dent goes through.
"We learn the process behind learn
ing, like what makes a child want to
learn and why they don't learn," she

uted to this story.
Ambassadors' evaluate pinrpose
By Lee Rood
After not meeting for nearly five
months members of the University
Ambassadors gathered Wednesday to
clarify the group's purpose and think of
ways to aid the university in the fall.
The ambassadors had disbanded in
November after being confused about
their purpose as a group, and what they
said was a lack of leadership..
The group was organized in the
spring of 1985 to visit Nebraska high
schools and give a student's perspeot
ttve of campus life at UNL. The group
also sponsored campus tours for pros
pective students such as "Red. Carpet
The nearly 25 students at the meet
ing told Dr. James Griesen, associate
vice chancellor of academic affairs that
they needed a sponsor and a better
definition of their purpose.
The students said that in the past
they didn't know who their leader was
and what they could and couldn't do as
Griesen outlined some possible activ
ities the students could work with in
the fall and said he would look for
: Griesen suggested possible activi
' ties for the group Including Freshman
Friday, traveling to area high schools,
and helping professors with university
Former ASUN president Chri3 Scud
der, who was an ambassador before
gaining the ASUN presidency last spring,
said in a telephone interview after the
meeting that the structure of the group
wasn't set up well. ,
"There was either too many indians
without a chief or too many chiefs
without any indians," Scudder said.
Members were usually involved with
other campus groups and because few
of the Ambassador's goals were being
met, many left the group and it soon
The ambassadors will meet again
next Thursday to elect officers and dis
cuss possible fall activities.

Contained errors : :
I Eleven cases of sexual harassment
were reported to the UNL Affirmative
Action and Equal Opportunity OHlce
between April 10, 1986, and April 10,
i987. The incidents involved both faculty ,
and students, said Colleen Daniels,
Affirmative Action and Equal oppor
tunity specialist at UNL
Because of the concern about sexual
harassment and a need to educate
people about it, the office helped spon
sor a workshop called "Sexual Harass
ment No Laughing Matter." Unfor
tunately, two errors appesred in an
account of the workshop (Daily Nebras
kan, April 6).
: ; A quote in the article was properly
attibuted to Cicily Coleman, formerly
cf AEC News. But Coleman was not at
the workshop. Her words were quoted
by Queen Forman, a former employ
ment manager for UNL .
Another paragraph In the wticle
mistakenly implied that a harassed
person could be punished for reporting
the incident. The opposite is true.
If an incident is reported and veri
fied, the university may take action
against the harasser, which might in
clude firing him or her. In addition, if
"proper action" is not taken after an
incident is reported to the university
and the incident is reported to another
agency, the university could be liable if
it was aware of the incident and
appropriate action was not taken, Dan
iels said." !
