chosen — but not before tempers
flared among board members after
the second closed session, when
Kennedy continued to abstain.
Board member Julie Jorgensen

“I think this little game is bullshit,”
Jorgensen said. “This is their lives and
the future of the Daily Nebraskan
we’re voting on, not your political
Fitzpatrick, who began working at
the DN in January 1991, said the

equate replacement for interpreters,
because the stenography readout is
often two minutes behind the instruc

“If I want to ask a question, the
professor must go back to what was
said earlier. I also cannot see what
people’s reactions are to the lecture,”
Sometimes cultural problems can
exist between the stenographers and
the deaf students, Dougherty said.
“Once a stenographer said, Til

Because of the lack of interpreters
available, Schick said UNL should
offer a degree in sign-language inter
pretation. Presently, only Southeast
Community College offers degrees in
Pew universities in the United
States offer sign-language degrees
because signing is perceived as a skill
“like fixing refrigerators,” Schick said.
But to be qualified at the college
level, she said an interpreter should
have four years of training and at least
three years of experience.
Another way to help the shortage
would be to hire full-time interpret
ers, Schick said. The university hired
12 part-time interpreters, but most of
them work in public elementary and

to work in the public schools, so UNL
must compete with the public schools
for interpreters, she said. The public

give them full-time benefits.
But because of its limited budget,
UNL will not hire full-time interpret
