Teachers College helps SEA grow
By Courtney Butherus
The Student Education Associa
tion at the University of Nebraska
Lincoln has doubled its membership
during the last year, said Pat Sim,
SEA member and Teachers College
Sim attributed this growth to im
proved unity and public relations
within the Teachers College, which
she said have helped promote this
organization of future teachers.
The establishment of the Student
Service Center, which provides ad
vising and services for students in the
Teachers College, is one of the rea
sons for SEA’s growth, Sim said.
“It’s been a unifying force, giving
the students a place to go and interact
with others in their college,” Sim
She said the center provides a
central location for publicity and
public relations services for groups
Sim also said that recent SEA otti
cers have contributed to the
“The officers we’ve had the past
few years have been hard-working
and dedicatee’ to promoting and im
proving the opportunities provided by
the organization,” Sim said.
SEA President Marsha Vodehnal
said the officers have worked to pub
licize benefits and opportunities of
membership in SEA.
SEA is an affiliate of the Nebraska
State Education Association and
National Education Association,
which are both organizations of prac
ticing teachers, Vodehnal said.
Members receive the same benefits as
teacher members, she said.
As president of both SEA and
NSEA, Vodehnal said both groups
have given her a number of opportu
“SEA has provided me with com
munication skills and enabled me to
meet a lot of people in my field.
“It gives students a good starting
point toward their future and helps
them anticipate changes in their edu
cauonai ana occupauonai pursuits,
Vodehnal said that through SEA
she had the opportunity to attend the
leadership conference in New Or
leans where she was one of six se
lected out of 37,000 nationally to
serve on a standing committee.
Vodehnal is the second student ever
from UNL to serve on the national
SEA Adviser Pat Sim said that
“because we have a strong organiza
tion, it provides opportunities for
students which in turn reflect back on
the organization and Teachers Col
“A study done through Northern
Illinois three years ago rated UNL
Teachers College student-teaching
program best in the United States,”
“Teachers College is a strong col
lege,” she said. “And the emergence
of SEA as a stronger organization,
along with the consolidation of stu
dent services have brought more rec
ognition to its strengths.”
Education legislation included
in task force's AIDS battle

John Taylor, vice chairman of the
task force, said stereotypes hinder
AIDS education. Many people still
think AIDS is just a gay disease, he
“People who think they can’t get
the disease because they are hetero
sexual are dead wrong,” Taylor said.
The percentage of AIDS patients
in the United States who are hetero
sexual has increased from 1 percentto
4 percent, Taylor said.
On the other hand, the percentage
of AIDS patients who are gay or bi
sexual has decreased from 75 percent
to 66 percent, he said.
The stereotype of AIDS being a
gay disease goes back to when it was
first discovered, he said. The disease
was first called Gay Related Immuno
In order to break the stereotypes,
education needs to be aimed at spe
cific groups, he said. Two of the
groups the task force tries to educate
are drug abusers and minorities, he
The 15-member task force, which
began more than a year ago, is made
up of community volunteers that in
clude gay and minority representa
tives. Task force members are avail
able to speak to any group who asks
for information, he said.
Another important aspect of edu
cation is repetition, Taylor said.
People need to hear the message more
than once before they fully under
stand it, he said.
All groups must understand that
AIDS cannot be transmitted through
casual contact, Taylor said. Because
of a misunderstanding of the disease,
AIDS has led to unnecessary fear and
discrimination, he said.
Because a high proportion of gays
and blacks have AIDS compared to

they have been discriminated against.
Although Taylor said he knows of
no discrimination in the Lincoln area,
he said, he has heard of discrimina
tion against AIDS victims in other
parts of the country.
Discrimination may not be as
obvious here as in other places be
cause the Lincoln area has a low
minority population, Taylor said.
The task force also supports state
legislation that ensures fair treatment
of AIDS patients and ensures the
public’s safety, Taylor said.
The task force would like to sec
legislation that prohibits discrimina
tion on the basis of AIDS test results.
But legislation needs to be enforced if
it’s going to do any good, he said.
Taylor said he hopes state senators
realize that spending money on AIDS
education and passing appropriate
legislation will save lives in the fu
