“Certainly, the Scopes Trial
was something that was history
making and maybe even a kick
off for the public debate over cre

Science, Mathematics &
Computer Education at UNL
The Scopes Trial was held in
1925 in Dayton, Tenn. John T.
Scopes, a high school biology
teacher, faced prosecution for
teaching the theory of evolution
in a public school.
William Jennings Bryan, a
Nebraska politician, prairie pop
ulist and three-time presidential
candidate known as the "Great
Commoner,” prosecuted Scopes.
Renowned attorney Clarence
Darrow defended him.
The court convicted Scopes
and fined him $100, but the state
Supreme Court later threw out
the conviction on technical

Diversity plan kept
in motion by officials
BY GWEN T1ETGEN
Reflecting back and looking
forward. That’s how Linda Crump,
assistant to the chancellor for
equity, access and diversity pro
grams, described the second draft
of UNL’s Comprehensive Diver
A universitywide e-mail sent
by Interim Chancellor Harvey
Perlman on Sept. 21 detailed dia
logues and activities that continue
as part of the diversity plan.
Some activities include semi
nars educating campus supervi
sors about prevention and reme
diation of illegal discrimination
and revamped discrimination
and harassment policies.
This summer, the University
of Nebraska-Lincoln contracted
with the state’s Office of Dispute
Resolution to use its statewide
network of mediation centers.
The actual use of the centers
will take place when all the proce
dural details are worked out,
Crump said the plan will have
slight changes made to it on a
yearly basis to help respond to the
changing needs of the campus.
“This gives us the potential
possibility of helping improve the
campus climate,” she said. "It’s a
dynamic plan that really responds
to the needs of the campus.”
Perlman said the main goal of
the diversity plan is to enhance
the campus’ diversity.
This is done by recruiting
diverse faculty members and
inviting an array of representa
tives to campus, he said.
“We are making good strides
in recruiting faculty and students,
and we have a long way to go,”
Diversity Plan started in 1997,
when as much information as
possible was gathered about
diversity issues, Crump said.
By continually revamping the
plan, she said, UNL can provide
the kind of education needed to
“I think we are making head
way, but we have to continue to
work and build on the progress
that we have made,” Crump said.
