By Kellie Englehardt News Editor $500,000 is the goal for Utah Valley State College's Operation GIVE, a current project to give school supplies to the students of Tonga. The director of this massive fund drive is Dave Nabrotzky, ASUVSC senator for math, science and health professions. The GIVE in Operation GIVE'S title, stands for Generating International Values for Education. Over the next six months, Nabrotzky plans to collect well over the $500,000 in school supplies including books, paper, pencils, and notebooks. His goal is also $40,000 in cash donations. Nabrotzky got the idea from Pete Uluave, math department chair who grew up on the island of Tonga. "He explained that a class of thirty students would be lucky to have two books between them all. The average six of their pencils are two to three inched and a 1980 encyclopedia would be considered gold," Nabrotzky said. "As Pete explained the conditions. I felt a desire to get involved. We have these supplies in abundance here in the state of Utah," he added. Student council was the next group to hear of the plan and according to Nabrotzky, everyone wanted to support the project. The council put together a planning committee of five to work through the goals. They are Pete Uluave. Trisha Nabrotzky, Carrie Ann Coomes, Cristine Sturgeon and Nabrotzky. "I shared the vision with the committee and they decided to make the project even more encompassing. We want to get as many students involved in this project as possible. There is strength in numbers," he said. Operation GIVE is hoping that every ..v.. www.-.:--.-. . . uagmuitmmm :7 . t:Yl i Irf i rl "! . . .m-cm MMF uCiii'iiiMi'' WIMjg ,- i i - IJJi uu i 1 I ous? STATE UNFAIR I UVSC's bid for a new four-year Integrated Studies degree has met vicious opposition from folks at the University of Utah. By Steve Carter Executive News Editor i W MEMO, PLEASE: The 1 1 n ic irotNiflf JiitfltrtrrTTrRFn rt rnth i n q memorandom through VmBstemffiWiMs office that lambasted UVSC and it's bid to gain an additional four-year degree. The Salt Lake-based university has long been an opponent of UVSC improving educational offerings. UVSC's fledgling Integrated Studies Degree recently met opposition from the dopr I,f ;nr University o.wa. According to a memorandum issued by Cecilia H. Foxley, chairwoman of the Board of Regents, the U of U has several complaints. But the officials at UVSC claim to have an answer to all their criticisms. Most of U of U's complaints are ground ed in what they called, a maior policy shift," or a stepping away from UVSC's role as a community college. Kerry Romesburg, president of Utah Valley State College said, "I don't believe the respondents U of U have read our mission statement recently. . . The U of U still thinks we're a tech college." In 1993, the Board of Regents gave their approval to make UVSC a state college, and to provide 4 year degrees which are in high demand in Utah valley. The U ot U raised some specific complaints. Their first shot was aimed at UVSC's faculty, which the U of U didn't feel was qualified enough to offer the expertise to teach the upper division courses required to support the degree. Romesburg disagrees, "We have demonstrated time and again that our faculty is up to any challenge. In 1993, when we were trying to gain approval to be a 4 year college, they received the same criticism; they've pulled through admirably. Another blow was aimed at UVSC's library resources. The U of U believes the library is in need of serious review as it may not be able to accommodate all the upper level books that would be required to support the new degree . JEALOUS CONTINUED ON PG. 4 UVSC instructors' art work on display ART ATTACK I Two UVSC instructors are displaying their works in the Library this month. By Rebecca McGettigan Senior Reporter UVSC Libraries Art Gallery is in full show with its current aft exhibit displaying works from two UVSG-art instructors. Catherine Downing and Martha Harding's work is being exhibited on the fourth floor of the UVSC Library in a show titled "Landscapes of the Imagination." Through their imaginative work, the two artists reveal a small piece of their imagination to the rest of the world. The show has been on dis play since Nov. 10, but was officially opened on Nov. 20 with a brief lunch time gathering that included light refreshments and an entertaining one-hour discussion about art. Both artists used different mediums to portray vastly different images through their work. Downing's pieces used graphite to recreate drawings of local scenery, including her own back yard. Viewers might recognize other familiar scenes also such as Deer Creek Reservoir and local mountains and ranges. Fun make-believe images and characters filled Harding's pieces, right down to their titles, like "Hey Diddle Diddle" and "Trip to the Zoo." Childlike fun and optimism was a steady theme. Harding used oils and mixed media on all her pieces, using mixed media to make the picture literally stand out in some of her morethree-dimensional pieces. Potential purchasers can get prices of the art upon request from the library and most dT the artwork is absolute-, ly sellable. The artists expressed Sinclair sentiments about how to view art. "People don't trust their own feelings," said Downing. Some viewers did discover the themes and meanings of the art through their own thoughts and feelings. "It makes me happy," one viewer commented. "Good," replied Harding, "that's what I wanted it to do." . TEAM AGERS: UVSC's women's basketball team huddles around department on campus will donate their unused books and supplies. So far the math and science departments have donated over $20,000 in books. "I bet every faculty member has books sitting on their shelves that are not being used. Many times a course changes books so the old ones just sit around collecting dust," said Uluave. Operation GIVE is not only getting UVSC involved but the entire community as well. Perhaps the biggest fund-raiser for Operation GIVE will be a dance held GIVE CONTINUED ON PG. 5 Funding cuts increases need for volunteers PRICELESS GIFT I Volunteer help by UVSC students is sorely needed at the Center for Women and Children in Crisis. By Kristin Riggs Staff Reporter Saturday volunteer work by UVSC students was extremely valuable to the seemingly less-valuable child-care programs.On Oct. 24, six psychology students spent the afternoon at UVSC's Center for Women and Children in Crisis. At the time of their visit, there were eight children between the ages of 1 and 10. Some were homeless; some were staying with their mothers in the women's shelter. The students were there to "get a grade" - but little did they know how priceless their volunteer work actually was. Recently, Utah actually lowered childcare funding. The $10.6 million budget was slashed by $4 million this year. The day these assorted UVSC students gave to playing with children, sterilizing toys and other tasks, was the help the child care center could not afford to pay for. Jennifer Carlson, coordinator of the child care center, said the budget slashes most likely won't be detrimental to children in need, thanks in large part to the grants and omer funds provided by the United Way. She did say. however, that volunteer work is in great demand during the holidays. The children in the care center stay a maximum of 30 days while their mothers find a job. housing andor receive counseling from center therapists. Carlson said that while mothers are in the center, children need active and positive reinforcement during the rehabilitation period. Volunteers often satisfy these needs. One child at the center did not live at the center, but "wishedl he could." Often times, the center is the only place a child can play, and for all intentions, be a child. The center provides an escape for these children from abusive homes and from parents in trouble with the law. "The children will definitely be taken good care of this holiday." said Carlson. Gifts and food for all of the children has been purchased or provided by local charity organizations.
