Event to raise funds for homeless
By Julie Sobczyk
Staff Reporter
Spending oncnighl in Ihc cold won’t
change Lincoln’s homeless problem,
but some believe it will help increase
awareness about the problem.
Lincoln Mayor Mike Johanns an
nounced Tuesday that Great Plains
Winter SlccpOut Day would be Sept.
30. He encouraged Lincoln citizens to
participate in the annual event by sleep
ing outside for one night.
Michael Carpenter, chairman of the
Lincoln Homeless Coalition, said
homelessness was a big problem in
“Twenty-five hundred to 3,000 indi
viduals will become homeless this year,”
he said. “Over half of these arc women
and children.”
Factors such as income, higher hous
ing prices, and domestic abuse lead to
homelessness, he said.
The third annual SlccpOut, orga
nized by the Lincoln Homeless Coali
tion, is aimed at raisingawarcncss about
the homeless and raising money for
shelters for the homeless. Carpenter
Those participating in the event will
sleep outside in Antelope Park. Partic
ipants need to provide their own sleep
ing bags and blankets. •
Participants raise money during the
event by getting pledges, based on the
number of hours they sleep out, or one
time donations. The proceeds will go to
local homeless shelters. Corporate spon
sors also donate money to the event.
Carpenter sa id the SlccpOut was not
designed to give participants a realistic
experience of homelessness.
“The purpose of the SlecpOul is not
designed to be realistic,” he said. “It’s
designed to create awareness. A lot of
people who aren ’t service providers can
get involved.”
Carpenter said the coalition hoped to
raise lens of thousands of dollars this
year with the SlccpOut.
He said $26,000 was raised last year
and “almost $26,000 was raised the
year before.”
Carpenter said he was unsure of the
exact number of people who would
attend the event, but he expected at least
several hundred.
Corporate sponsors who have donat
ed to the SlecpOut include FirsTicr
Bank, National Bank of Commerce,
Union Bank, Lincoln Telephone and
the Lincoln Journal-Star.
Money raised during the SleepOut
will go to Lincoln shelters such as the
Friendship Home and the Pcople’sCity
Marsha Cussen, a representative
from the People’sCity Mission,said she
was glad the event made others aware of
the homelessness problem in Lincoln.
“Homelessness can reach anyone,
like neighbors and friends,” she said.
Other organizations that indirectly
help homeless people, such as the Amer
ican Red Cross, the Salvation Army,
DayWalch and the Gathering Place,
also will receive aid.
“The SlecpOut helps raise aware
ness, and the money helps DayWatch
stay open,” said Nancy Erickson, a
representative from DayWatch. “We
need to do something about the home
less problem.”
UJNL to partake in exchange program
By John Fulwider
Staff Reporter
A new exchange program with the
Indian Institute of Technology in
Kharagpur, India, will giyc UNL busi
ness students an opportunity to share
ideas with their Indian counterparts.
Two officials from the Indian col
lege visited the University of Nebraska
Lincoln Monday todiscussancxchange
program with College of Business Ad
ministration students.
The program, which would send
UNL business students and faculty to
India, would allow American and Indi
an participants to teach each other about
business practices in thcircountries. An
Indian businessman donated $2 million
to each educational institution to make
the program possible.
Vinod Gupta, chairman and chief
executive officer of American Business
Information. Inc., said he hoped his
donation would foster increased coop
eration and exchange of ideas between
CBA and a newly expanded college of
management at I IT.
K.L. Chopra, the president of IIT,
said the program needed students who
have completed a bachelor’s of arts
degree in engineering or science. He
said the institute would like students
with experience in a related industry.
At IIT, the business management
college is small—having only twenty
three faculty members, he said.
Chopra said IIT was strong in tech
nology management and analytic tech
niques but lacked experience in market
ing and other non-technical aspects of
He said he hoped the strength CBA
had in those areas could strengthen the
programs at MT. At the same, CBA
students and faculty could learn from
I IT’s experts in technical management.
The exchange program will involve
direct, practical experience with Indian
industries, he said. For example, stu
dents might go to a steel company and
work on a small project.
After the session with Chopra and
Sanyal, Gupta shared his reason for
donating $4 million to the two schools
— and his vision for the program.
“I think that American business in
stitutions are by far the best business
institions... and we need this expertise
in India,” he said. “And that’s why we
arc forming this operation with the
University of Nebraska college of busi
ness so we can enlist the help of the
faculty and students and have an ex
change of ideas.”
