the spring semester of 1998.
“The campus is not problem-free,”
Crump said. “No campus is. But we
have decided to be proactive and not
just reactive. We’re not going to wait
until a problem occurs to take action.”
Crump said UNL will focus on
educating faculty, staff and students
about discrimination and harassment
issues through various seminars.
After reviewing UNL’s diversity
efforts last year, the U.S. Office for
Civil Rights suggested that a more
comprehensive education plan regard
ing discrimination and harassment
policies was needed, Crump said.
In his state of the university address
Aug. 20, die chancellor pointed out the
importance of students’ involvement
and input on diversity. Last year, a
Faculty Liaison Task Force on Diversity
was assembled to promote and support
One of the task force’s main goals
was to provide small grants to support
diversity initiatives on campus.
Students can go to the task force with
suggestions on how to foster diversity
on campus, and, with university
approval, their ideas could become
reality, Crump said.
Moeser said the task force is
important to the university.
“The task force will continue its
work in the coming year (1999-2000),
and funds have been reallocated to con
tinue the diversity enhancement pro
gram and a preliminary call for propos
als has been issued,” he said in his uni
Another committee on diversity
will be assembled to decide how to
spend the remaining money.
The additional money allocated for
diversity will help the Diversity Plan,
but Crump said there is never enough
money to accomplish everything.
“We do have limited resources, but
we hope to use the money for as much
as we can,” she said. “It is a decent
amount to try and make a positive

Percentage: UNL outdoes city in citations
PARKING from page 1
But searching in city lots may prove safer for the
UNL Parking Services has outdone its city counter
part in the last year, issuing about two-thirds as many
tickets on campus as the Lincoln police did across the
Sherryl Chamberlain, assistant director of parking
services, said university parking enforcement officers
issued 76,500 tickets in the fiscal year 1989-99 between
City and East campuses. ChamberMin said that total
included all forms of tickets, including warnings.
Howard Parker, campus architect and director of
facilities planning and construction, said a rough “ball
park” estimate of the area of both City and East cam
puses was around two square miles.
Over the same period, Pat Waegii of the city
Violations Bureau said Lincoln police cited 121,110
vehicles for parking violations across the city.
Interlinq, the city’s official Web site, located at
www.ci.lincoln.ne.us, measured the city’s area at 69
The competition for parking places around campus L
could contribute to the high number of parking citations
issued by university parking enforcement. Chamberlain
said the university has 13,300 parking stalls divided
among handicap and meter stalls, students and faculty.
About 7,500 of the university stalls are available for
student permit holders, Chamberlain said, and parking
services stopped selling student parking permits after
Ryan Roberts, a senior broadcasting major, said this
year was the first he wasn’t able to get a parking permit.
“I’ve always been able to get a pass,” Roberts said.
“They told me this was the first year they’ve sold out all
the green passes.”
Recent parking problems were partially due,
Chamberlain said, to construction downtown and more
students using vehicles on campus.
University and city parking enforcement also differs
when it comes to towing illegally parked vehicles.
Lincoln Police Captain Joyce Citta said parking tick
ets can lead to the towing of a vehicle only after the driver
has compiled five unpaid tickets.
Waegli said 1,546 vehicles were towed in Lincoln last
year because of outstanding parking tickets.
University parking enforcement can tow a vehicle,
Chamberlain said, if one unpaid ticket is more than 30
days old. Chamberlain estimated the total number of vehi
cles towed from university property for any towable
offense at 830.
City and university parking services will tow any
vehicle blocking the flow of traffic, parked in a frrelane or
in any other outwardly illegal spot.
A university parking services officer said some offi
cers write up to 200 tickets a day, and estimated a day’s
total at 700 tickets and eight towed cars. The cost of being
towed was the cost of the ticket in addition to any out
standing tickets and a $80 towing fee.
He said about eight officers work part time ticketing
illegally parked vehicles on campus.
More vehicles received tickets in the first weeks of
classes, he said, because many students had yet to learn
where they could and could not park.
Police say Lincolnite lost thousands to scam artists
SCAM from page 1
Df a Wendy’s restaurant at 32nd Street
and Cornhusker Highway, police
said, to explain the word’s meaning.
While in the parking lot, the two
men asked the victim to prove his
trust by allowing the pair to walk
around the restaurant with the vic
tim’s cash, his wedding ring and
watch. The victim agreed and gave
the men the requested items and cash.
2 After the two men left the truck,
the victim went into the restaurant to
use the restroom. The men were miss
ing when he returned.
The victim reported a total loss of
$ 11,050 and asked not to be named.
The first man was described as a
black male between 45 and 50 years
of age, about 5-feet-8 and of stocky
build. The second was described as
45 years of age, 5-feet-9 and 155
pounds. Police said he wore dark suit
pants and jacket.
A 70-year-old Lincoln man fell
victim to a similar crime on June 10.
As in Tuesday’s crime, the victim
withdrew money from a bank and
gave it to two men, one of whom
claimed to be from Africa and wanted
to give his money to a good Christian
man, police said.
“This type of scam is common
across the country,” police investiga
tor Ed Sexton said. “You need to real
ize that the people who commit this
type of crime travel extensively.”
