William Chance and Keith Pailthorp of North American Education Research, an Olym-pia, Wash, based firm, presented the findings of their $30,000, 89-page report to the state board of regents on Fri., Dec 13. They recommended a limited offering of baccalautate degrees at the future Utah Valley College or Utah Valley State College. "We found significant evidence of unmet baccalaureate needs in Utah County. Although several alternatives can be considered, the best alternative would be the conversion of said Chance. However, "a redesignated UVCC should not be patterned along the lines of Utah's teachingresearch or metropolitan regional universities. UVCC should extend the community college concept to the upper division." the NORED report advises. UVCC President Kerry Romesburg believes this recommendation goeshand-in-hand with his two-plus-two plans for UVCC (see accompanying article for further ex-planantion of Romesburg'stwo-plus-two plans). Chance cautioned that UVCC President plans for two-plus-two UVCC President Kerry Romesburg calls his plan for expansion of the college"two-plus-two." Two-plus-two was first envisioned as a division of UVCC into Utah Valley Junior College, which would carry on the college's traditional open-door, community based role, and Utah Valley Senior College, with entrance requirements and programs similar to Utah's other four-year schools. The findings of the indepen-dant consulting firm NORED (see article above) did not strictly endorse this model, suggesting instead a single organization called Utah Valley College or Utah Valley State College. But the study 1 ' nine volume University of Utah President Arthur Smith questions the statistical validity of one of the seven criteria used to recommend UVCC for redesignation as a four-year college at the board of regents meeting on Fri. Dec. 13. should not aspire to offer a full-range of "core" upper-division programs. Rather, "The baccalaureate programs it offers should did recommend continuing the community-driven mission that the college has been fulfilling. Selling this new institution to the state is the big struggle ahead. "No one agrees with me in the state except somepeopleon campus and some legislators," Romesburg told The College Times in August."Every time I talk abouttwo-plus-two, people ask me 'Who is doing this? Show me a good example of where it works.' I can't... but I don't think that is an excuse not to try on this campus," he said. So far, the state board of regents hasbeen reluctant to commit to another baccalaureate-offering school in Utah,and the state's other -iwx'''www 20 issue 23 8 January im- -si,., w Thomat Epting Jha College Ilmt be limited in number and directed to the educational needs of the See FOUR-YEAR page 4 colleges and universities are worried about an intrusion into their own budgets. "We only have a certain amount of money for the nine state institutions, and if oneof us, Utah Valley, suddenly needs a whole bunch more money, it can only come out of the hides of other institutions." But the findings of NORED and public opinion seem to echo Romesburg's own ideas, and he feels the regents and legislature will find it hard to disagree. "I am hoping that they will not only be right-minded but open-minded. I think we can accomplish this without harm to the rest of the system." 1992 utah valley community college McDonald booted from team after weekend disappearing act Dick Harmon Herald Sports Editor Mike McDonald, listed by some scouting services as the No. 1 junior college center in the country this year out of UVCC, is McDonald not enrolled in the Orem college, it was reported Mon., Dec. 16. He was enrolled Fri., Dec. 13. In fact, McDonald was the subject of an in tense last-minute effort, by the school to get him ready to play Sat., Dec. 14. McDonald had been ineligible due to academics, a status which was supposed to change that week. McDonald, a 6-foot-10 sopho- if 't-'ijl v. Free plays cost $ 1 .50 Susan Ostergaard Guest Writer Some students at UVCC thought school plays would be free this year. Instead, drama productions cost $1.50. Lastyear'ssrudentgovemment had voted to give the drama department 50 cents per student per semester in exchange for free admission to performances. However, this year's student government voted in September to allow drama to charge students $1.50, a reduction from last year's $3 admission, instead of giving students free admission. According to Tom Hover, director of student life, the drama department has received $8,000 as a result of last year's student council's decision to allocate money from the student council's Ban on children prompts campus day care service Rick Swope Staff Writer Due to the policy of not allowing children in classes, UVCC is looking into providing a short time child care service. According to Lucille Stoddard, vice president of academic affairs, there were some problems and complaints that occurred when parents were bringing their children to class, so UVCC's strict new policy does not allow children in classrooms. Stoddard said, "As we 1 '"vl more from Longview, Texas, achieved eligibility statusover that weekend and the school expected him to play in UVCC's upset victory over the College of Southern Idaho. But after taking five tests after UVCC s fall term ended Wed., Dec. 11, achieving playing status, he disappeared, and never showed up for the game. "We did not see Mike since 3 p.m. Friday. Coach (Duke) Reid went to his apartment Monday and woke him up and told him he was no longer on the team or in school," said UVCC athletic director Mike Jacobsen. According to Jacobsen, McDonald's official status today is he has been dismissed for "disciplinary" reasons. Coach Duke Reid expected See MCDONALD page 5 discretionary fund to theater. Even with theadditional funding, Hover said that free admission to performances would have canceled any net gain the drama department might have received. "It would have been a wash as far as the drama budget is concerned," said Hover. Ken Patey, this year's student body president, said that the current student council knew this and decided to allow the drama department to have a net gain. Last year's council voted tohelpdrama. This year's council voted to help drama a little more, he said. But Erik Laver, last year's student body vice president over academics, said, "Students are being done an injustice," referring to the new coundl's decision against free See DRAMA page 5 developed policy it created a new need." The new day-care program would be for students who run into situations where they cannot find care for their child basically for emergency purposes. Stoddard said that one of the reasons for this move is a rise in married and single-parent students at UVCC. UVCC asls those who would be interested in this program to fill out a survey.
