It’s been more than a year since
UNL received a $700,000 grant from
the Robert Wood Johnson foundation to
fight high-risk drinking among college
After a year of planning, NU
Directions, the coalition formed to
implement the grant, is armed with a
plan it hopes will make a noticeable
dent in the amount ofhigh-risk drinking
at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln,
said Linda Major, coalition coordinator.
The group, made up of community
and university members, students and
business people, approved a strategic
plan in May to combat high-risk drink
ing during the next four years.
This fall, the group created a time
line, including the dates when it hopes
tb implement the goals.
“Wfe hope to show some activity in
each goal beginning dns year,” Major
said. “Then we will spread it out over
Thirteen goals make up the plan.
Enforcement, education, looking at
UNL alcohfglpolicy, implementing
substance i^iito^ipgHBnsand working
with businesses to decrease high-risk
drinking promotions art just some of
the areas NU Directions hopes to wak

UNL event focuses
on minority status
■ At ‘Moving Beyond
Analysis,’ diverse group
discusses campus climate.
By Margaret Behm
’ Staff writer L.v'
Faculty, staff and students con
certed with minority status at the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln got
an opportunity Wednesday to voice
“Moving Beyond Analysis To
Solutions” took place in the Culture
Center and allowed participants to
voice concerns about race relations
ami devise potential solutions to die
“As far as being a student, I do not
think of myself as a UNL student. I
think of myself as an African
American student at UNL,” said N.
Omar Valentine, a senior marketing,
psychology and sociology major.
Valentine is also the senior dele
gate for the Affikan People’s Union.
The event was co-sponsored by APU
and the Culture Cento.
At the event, one major concern
was that minority students don’t have
significant representation in student
Valentine said that getting more
representation on various issues was
important. Valentine explained that
minorities are asked opinions only on
issues that have to do with their race.
He said he would prefer to be a
part of decisions made on campus
that have to do with issues not related
to race, such as parking.
ASUN President Andy
Schuerman said the Association of
Students of the University of
Nebraska was working to improve
minority representation in the senate.
“(It is) not to just represent their
group but to make a step in the direc
tion of understanding the struggles
that people of color go through,”
Another issue addressed at the
event was low minority enrollment.
“There are problems because this
is a prominently white campus,” said
Colette Mast, a senior sociology
major. “I’ll only speak for the Native
Ametican struggle, that we are
extremely isolated. I see a lot of self
segregation on this campus.”
