Oklahoma follows NU’s lead
From Staff and Wire Reports
The NU Board of Regents jokingly
considered a motion Saturday that
would have congratulated Oklahoma
for following Nebraska’s lead in the
hunt for Micron.
Omaha, Oklahoma City, Okla.,
and Utah County, Utah, are finalists
for the Boise, Idaho, company’s pro
posed $1.3 billion plant. The site of
the plant, which would employ up to
3,500 people, is expected to be se
lected by March 1.
Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating
said last week that master’s degree
programs would be offered at the
Micron plant if the Oklahoma City
site was chosen.
University of Nebraska President
Dennis Smith said Friday that was
fine with him.
“If Oklahoma is saying they are
starting something, then they are way
behind,” Smith said Friday on the
regents tour of the University of Ne
Smith said an NU program called
CorpNet had been offering on-the
job master’s programs for years. He
said the program would be expanded
under his recommendations to im
prove engineering education in Ne
Micron officials have said the prox
imity of a trained work force and an
engineering college were factors in
deciding where to locate the plant.
Micron officials are expected to meet
with university officials this week
during visits to Nebraska.

May said the report was written by
all four chancellors’ commissions to
bring one voice to the regents.
“This report should not and cannot
be interpreted as assigning blame,”
she said. “The slate is relatively clean.”
The report says the percent of
women faculty at the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln increased 4 percent
in ten years.
In 1984,13.7 percent of UNL fac
ulty were women, earning the school
a seventh-place ranking among peer
universities. However, the report
shows that UNL slipped to ninth
among its peers in 1994, when the
percent rose to 17.7 percent.
The Omaha and Kearney campuses
posted similar numbers. Both showed
a rising number of women faculty, but
their growth was slower than at other
NU President Dennis Smith sup
ported the recommendations, and said
NU had been doing better at hiring
He said, however, that reaching a
goal of the midpoint among peer uni
versities by the year 2000 might be
difficult because of uncertain hiring
numbers. He asked for a strong com
mitment to the goal but not an abso
May said a significant rise in the
number of women hired at each of the
four campuses would be needed to
catch up with peer universities. How
ever, she said, that would be difficult
because NU was already behind, and
other university’s numbers kept ris
Miller questioned the recommen
dations in the report and the regents’
goal of leadership among peer univer
“Your recommendations are really
a blatant call to sex discrimination,”
he said. Miller said it was question
able whether a recommendation call
ing for hiring based on sex was defen
sible in court.
May said Miller’s concerns laid
with the board’s goals, not with the
“There is absolutely nothing rep
resenting a quota in the report,” May
said Sunday. “We took great care to
reject the use of quotas. It’s hard to
imagine how anyone who read the
report would conclude otherwise.”
She said Miller’s criticism of the
use of peer groups was unfair. She
said it was a valid comparison, which
was why the regents used them.
In other business, the regents unani
mously approved an almost 6.5 per
cent increase in room and board rates
at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Even Mother Nature or deferred
maintenance couldn’t put a tarnish on
UNL’s shine. The sun was out for
most of the day, and Richards and
Burnett halls were not on the tour.
The tour was part of a change in the
regents’ meeting agendas. Instead of
hearing reports from each of the four
chancellors at their monthly meet
ings, the regents will tour the indi
vidual NU campuses.
During the tour, the regents were
shown some of the newer parts of
UNL, such as the multimedia lecture
hall in Henzlik Hall, where biology
professor Anthony Joem was busy
hustling remote controls and comput
ers as he taught cellular mitosis.
Regent Robert Allen of Hastings
and Regent John Payne of Kearney
watched, as if they were students, a
cell split on the screen in front of the
The regents also saw a food sci
ences center in Mabel Lee Hall and
the Physics InfoMall in Brace Labora
The regents said the cost of these
centers concerned them, but they
thought the centers were needed in
