Ban on travel to Yugoslavia
delays UNL economics project
By Kara Morrison
Staff Reporter
The ban on travel to Yugoslavia, a
country in the middle of an escalating
civil war, has delayed UNL’s $1 million
project to help Yugoslavia convert to
a market economy, said projectdirec
tor Sang Lee.
Lee, director of the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln’s Center for Tech
nology Management and Decision
Sciences, said his trip to Yugoslavia
has been delayed by almost a month
because of the fighting.
Croatia and Slovenia, two Yugo
slavian republics, declared independ
ence from Yugoslavia June 25.
A cease-fire ordered by Yugosla
via’s eight-member presidency col
lapsed this week, and ethnic fighting
continues in Croatia. Slovenia has
been under a cease-fire since early
The Yugoslavian project that Lee
is organizing stemmed from a SI
million grant to UNL from the Agency
for International Development Ronald
Roskens, AID administrator and for
mer president of the University of
Nebraska, announced UNL’s grant in
Lee said the grant is part of Presi
dent Bush’s promise of technical
assistance to Central and Eastern
European nations eyeing democracy.
UNL’s project proposal was cho
sen from 112 submitted proposals.
The university is one or- 32 U.S.
postsccondary institutions to partici
pate in the 11 projects of this kind.
Lee said other institutions partici
pating in the projects include: The
University of Southern California, the
University of Michigan, the Univer
sity of North Carolina, the Gallup
Organization, U.S. West and Saturn.
Project plans include setting up
six, one-week conferences on market
economics and management training
for 3,000 to 5,000 top and middle
managers and entrepreneurs, Lee said.
The first conference is scheduled for
Since Yugoslavian businessmen
still “think that making a profit is not
necessary,” Lee said, other basic
business concepts including funda
mentals of accounting, entrepre
neurship and management science will
be taught.
To reach up to 20,000 additional
people, training centers are also being
planned for the Yugoslavian cities of
Belgrade, Zagreb, Ljubljana and
Sarajevo, he said.
Lee said he also hopes to bring five
top Yugoslavian managers to UNL
for three months of training.

a part in her decision, she said. They
make UNL “a good place to be,”
Lovelace said.
“The world is such a small place
now,” she said. “Everything is global
now. We need to be aware of what our
actions are doing to other countries,
like Australia.”
Lovelace said she has many ideas
of what she’d like to see changed in
the shrinking world, but none she’s
ready to share.
“I don’t have the answers,” she
said. “I need to study it more.”
She is looking forward to much
more than just school, though.
As a new pledge to Alpha Phi,
Lovelace said she is excited about
sorority life. Next year, after she’s
settled at UNL, Lovelace said she
hopes to try out for cheerlcading and
the Scarlet & Cream Singers.
But this year she will be working
with the Junior Achievement Alumni
“I can’t wait to give back to the
organization,” Lovelace said.
But, she said, her trip to Australia
and her involvement in Junior Achieve
ment have taught her to slow down.
Australians live life at a much slower
pace than Americans, she said.
Lovelace said she wants to adopt
the same attitude into her own life.
In the meantime, Lovelace said
she will concentrate a little less on
solving the world’s problems and a
little more on parties, her sorority and
“just having fun.”
