I HAIR from page 1
Glenn said after he was notified
1 of his acceptance to the clinic,
Criminal Clinic Director Alicia
Henderson advised him that his hair
might be an issue.
“The issue at the law school isn’t
whether or not I was in the right. The
issue is having someone outside of
the law college dictating who can get
in to certain courses,” Glenn said.
“Now the issue is what is the proper
University of Nebraska College
of Law Dean Nancy Rapoport
“The question here is if such a
physical characteristic as hair is dis
criminatory at a university,”
Rapoport said. “I can tell you we are
now frying to find the answer.”
Law Professor John Snowden
said he is taking Lacey’s actions seri
“For 30 years people have been
telling me to cut my hair, but I don’t,”
said Snowden, who said he had also
fought appearance discrimination
because of his long hair.
“If I can be here as a professor,
students should be able to be here as
Richard Duncan, law professor,
said students have the right to discuss
these issues in an open forum.
“I do think this violates universi
ty policy,” Duncan said. “Some of us,
including myself, were shocked to
hear what had happened.”
Rapoport said she is attempting
to schedule a faculty meeting within
the next two weeks to discuss Glenn’s

as a great learning opportunity,”
Rapoport said. “This is an opportuni

Snowden said he hoped the law
college would listen to student con
cerns and stop any other form of dis
crimination against university stu
“The problem is with the
University of Nebraska and whether
it is going to stand behind real princi

said. “That is the question the univer
sity needs to ask themselves.”
Fraternity has high hopes
LATINO from page 1
Linda Schwartzkopf, director of
-I greek affairs, said Sigma Lambda
Beta has been readily accepted by
other members of the greek system.
“They’re extremely well-respect
ed, not just in the Interfraternity
Council, but in the entire greek sys
tem,” she said.
Foster witnessed that respect last
year when fraternity and sorority
members hung banners outside then
houses welcoming the new fraternity.
“I want to thank all the greeks for
putting banners up,” he said.
Schwartzkopf said she was excit
ed about the fraternity’s coming
recruitment process, and said she
was pleased to have the group in
UNL’s greek system.
In addition to the Latino youth
program, organizations like Big
Brothers, Big Sisters and
Neighborhood Inc. may benefit from
the fraternity members’ services,
Members researched the decision
to sign with Sigma Lambda Beta and
continue to learn more about the fra
ternity, they said.
“We’ve taken three weekend trips
to college campuses now,” Phillips
said. “By learning how (fraternity
| members’) relations are on other
campuses and by seeing how they fit
in, we can see how we fit in.”
Foster said the Latino fraternity
filled a void that existed on campus
before Sigma Lambda Beta opened.
“We wanted to make a communi
ty where it was safe to go,” he said.
“Hopefully, that will expand to lead
ership roles on campus.”
With the addition of the Latino
fraternity last year, interest grew for
a female counterpart.
Representatives from two Latina
sororities were invited to speak,
including Sigma Lambda Gamma,
the sister sorority of Sigma Lambda
Cameya Ramirez, a junior crimi
nal justice major, said after the pre
sentation, interested students were
told by greek officials to look at all
possible options before selecting a
Since then, most of the interested
students have graduated.
Ramirez said interest still exists,
but that students needed to organize
before further action was taken.
Sigma Lambda Beta, however, is
ready to make an impact.
“Now that we’re initiated, we’re
looking to make our presence felt,”
“We plan on representing our
selves to the fullest.”
UPC faces likely budget cuts
The Committee for Fees
Allocation voted preliminarily
Tuesday to cut 7.5 percent out of a
proposed budget by the University
Program Council for the 1999-2000
UPC proposed a $ 124,695 budget
to the committee two weeks ago.
CFA Chairman Paul Schreier said
the proposal was a $4,300 increase
from last year’s budget proposal of
$120,395. UPC asked for the addi
tional $4,300 for travel and training
expenditures, he said.
CFA’s vote Tuesday, he said,
would cut 7.5 percent, or more than
$9,000 from the proposed $124,695.
Schreier said the budget cut was
designed to allow UPC to still have
the ability to organize major events
while cutting down on the number of
He said he thought the organiza
tion was valuable, but that it should
strive to use its resources more effi
