Edith Hamiliton. UVSC is definitely caught up into the expanding universe of thought. A recently proposed vision statement is laying out plans to offer more degrees try 30 four-year degrees by 2003 and even adding graduate degrees. Additionally, professors' salaries were reportedly altered to be equal to that of full-scale universities (part of the approved $170 tuition increase will help compensate teacher salaries), which comes to no surprise to those who have been keeping up with the direction UVSC administrators have been paving. Some have announced that they will be pro-actively seeking university status in the future (which may be more sooner than later). "UVSC is committed to maintaining the responsiveness and flexibility of its historic mission while becoming a highly respected state college offering a comprehensive range of baccalaureate degrees and programs," the statement reads. "UVSC anticipates the time when it will also respond to community needs for graduate courses and degrees as a metropolitan university." This comes in the wake of the Board of Regents approving 13 new baccalaureate degrees, totaling the the number to 21 four-year liberal arts degrees altogether. UVSC, which originally began as a technicalvocational two-year institution is setting the example for other universities across the country.

Dates are set for terminating construction projects on the north side of campus. These will be the new Computer Science and Engineering building and enlarged Student Center. This new Computer Science and Engineering facility will accommodate five to six thousand more students. This building, which is said to be being built very speedily, is scheduled for completion before the beginning of the 2001 fall semester. Arrangements are being made now so that at least two of the four floors in the structure are guaranteed to be usable upon commencing the fall semester. As of now, this project is on schedule. The 40,000 square foot expansion of the student center is another big project. This new add-on to the student center will include additional conference rooms, offices, .another cafeteria, an expanded ballroom, and of course more student lobbies.

Saturday school becoming a o Qooular college alternative By 0V1LLA WILSON OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF UVSC is making it easier to find classes to fit the busy student schedule by offering more evening and weekend classes. Weekend classes are generally smaller than regular day courses, usually with only about twenty students in each. The Weekend College extends the academic programs of UVSC by providing more that 45 academic credit courses each semester, according to Martin Harris in an article entitle "UVSC on the weekend or at the mall." The University Mall is another option for busy students who don't want to hassle with parking permits, crowds, large classes, and all the construction. There are more than 50 credit courses during the Fall and Spring semesters, and 35 credit courses in the summer. Classes at the mall are taught during the day and evening hours, and there is even a computer lab on the premise to make it even easier. John MacFarlane, coordinator of the evening school, said that feedback so far has been positive. Students like the convenience of the small classes. The program has been especially convenient for full-time workers, students children, and those wishing to take classes over their lunch break..

The topic of this year's conference was environmental activism. The conference was held to help students at UVSC and members of the community alike to realize and become engaged in the importance of taking car of our environment. Brian Birch, associate director of the Center for the Study of Ethics, said, "Part of our civic duty as citizens is to be active in political affairs. Environmental activism cannot be reduced to the stereotypes of someone sitting in a tree or sabotaging mink farms. Part of the effort of this conference is to help UVSC and the community as a whole to recognize the importance of environmental issues and the various forms activism can take." There were four different speakers and a dance performance, followed by an open panel discussion. The speakers were Lillian Hayes the recipient of the Excellence in Environmental Ethics Award, Luke Peterson the winner of the Student Environmental Ethics Paper Competition, Chip Ward the Co-Founder of West Desert Healthy Environmental Alliance, Families Against Incinerator Risk, and Citizens Against Chlorine Contamination and Mark White the Co-Founder and Continued pg. 3 See "Conference" Yip-Yaps Orchids have the smallest seeds.
